Don’t even bother walking in
Red Pepper is a convenient walk from campus but, don’t bother wasting your time. Calories may be recouped but if what you seek is quality, you’re at the wrong place.
Walking into Red Pepper you’ll be greeted by workers and a microwave directly behind them.
Yes, you read that right.
A microwave, heats up your food. It’s almost as if you’re heating up one of the cheap frozen breakfast sandwiches you purchase at a gas station when you’re running late for work.
But, instead of it being a breakfast sandwich it’s a taco slowly rotating its way around while the timer ticks by… 3.. 2.. 1.. Ding!
What you purchased is a cost-effective meal of crap.
It reminds me of a meal I used to make myself when my mom wasn’t home to cook. At least she had higher quality ingredients and I was able to add some actual flavor (not from anything fancy, but from the 49 cent seasoning packets found at the grocery store).
Perhaps Red Pepper should purchase some of those and for goodness sake, a screen to hide the microwaves.
Don’t get me wrong, I usually enjoy transparency when it comes to food preparation at restaurants but, seeing microwaves plain as day is down-right depressing.
I can only imagine what Gordon Ramsay would say if his show, Kitchen Nightmares, were to visit Fargo.
