I just had to try out a new deli that opened a stone's throw away from where I work. The facade was very clean and attractive and the whole "deli" vibe was inviting my curiosity. So after work last night, we took the plunge and tried it. I was surprised when we went in and everyone seemed to be busy minding other things. It was as if the "soft opening" signage gave the staff an excuse to be unattentive. After wandering for a few minutes along the aisles of mostly Australian goodies, a kind waiter came over and told us that more merchandise was available upstairs so off we went and I was pleasantly surprised to find kitchen equipment was also for sale. I zeroed in on a silicone-handled pair of tongs and asked how much it was. It took them almost the entire duration of my stay there to inform me that there was no price for it yet and so they cant sell it to me! Nevermind, I came to try the food anyways. We tried the pasta, I ordered the Sausage pasta with Italian chili sausage and red sauce and my cousin M tried the Sausage pasta in cream sauce. We were the only dining customers at this point but our orders took very long. We werent disappointed though, my pasta looked and tasted good. I just hope that next time I go back there, they have ironed things out and everything will be smooth.
