Depressing restaurants you love

dndicicco | Feb 18, 2014 10:36 AM

I stole this idea from another thread. What are some depressing restaurants that you secretly love?

I have a few:
- Any of the horrible-service Ethiopian restaurants near UPenn. When you see them, you're shocked, when you're not greeted, you're depressed, but when you receive the food you get high on the endorphin rush of injera and veggies

- Green Tea in Newtown PA. First off this is in a basement. Second, it's owned by a mom & pop who had the same Mediterranean menu for about 15 years (how depressing is that?), which they called Cafe Con Leche. The owner got fat, became vegan, and finally expanded to something else. Surprisingly good and while the servers are ditzy beyond belief, the vegan deliciousness is full bore w/o being overly oily
