why the !@&% didn't I go back to Toro?!?

Last week I got a rare opportunity to go out to lunch during work. My job is in Newmarket and Speeds was incommunicado so on Tuesday I swung by Toro to try the "messy burger" i have heard so much about. It came a la carte so I was talked into a white gazpacho by the helpful and friendly bartender.

I am not good at food descriptions but both were really really excellent. One of the best burgers I have had recently and the messy sauce was just awesome. With a soda, tax and tip, i think the total was around $16 or so

2 days later, i went to Victoria's diner. I hadn't been in probably a year, but i remembered it being ok, especially if you played it safe. Alas, I remembered wrong. I got a chicken salad club and soda. Cisco fries, crappy chicken salad, wilted lettuce etc etc. I mean it was just chicken salad so its not a big deal right,...

the bill with tax and time was like $14! I still don't really know how that happened.

All i could think of is that for TWO FREAKING DOLLARS I could have go to Toro!

Lesson learned!
