Alright. Now, for your results. Add up the number of a’s, b’s, c’s, d’s, and e’s you got – and meet your restaurant match!
Mostly a: Cava Mezze Grill
You’re probably a pretty health-oriented person, and you’re more into savory than sweet. Cava’s got you covered. With “supergreens” on the menu and plenty of pitas to go around, you’re sure to be satisfied with this one.
Mostly b: Tanad Thai Cuisine
It’s all about comfort food – and when you order in, you go big or go home. (After all, you now have lunch for a week)! Grab yourself some spring rolls and drunken noodles and give yourself a huge pat on the back. Your week is about to get a lot better.
Mostly c: Guapo’s Restaurant
Either you grew up on the west coast or you just wish you did – spicy food is your passion and you still haven’t discovered fresh guacamole made the way you like it. Give Guapos a try; you might just become a regular.
Mostly d: Murasaki Japanese Restaurant
You’re into sushi, there’s no doubt about that. Murasaki has rave reviews on Yelp – isn’t it time you gave it a try? (Of course, you probably already have.)
Mostly e: Z-Burger
Ahh, the all-American burger. Is there any other food that’s universally acknowledged as patriotic? Enjoy crunchy fries and your perfectly cooked burger with a sweet frosty shake. What are you waiting for?
