Station W

As I've mentioned in a previous post about Station W, it's right in front of my gym. I like things that are close to my gym because, well, let's face it, if I'm not working or sleeping, I'm at the gym.
I've already talked about the place, the decor, the vibe, etc. This will be a tiny review about something other than grilled cheeses. This will be about their vegetarian chili! 
I mean, how freaking pretty is that picture? Thank you instagram. I can't believe I refused to get on that for at least 1 year before giving in to my friend Lea's demands. Well... I'm damn happy I did. I would just like to say thank you; you have changed my LIFE. Back to business. Vegetarian chili with cheese on top (extra), a little bit of sour cream and some bread. Yes. The bread was not buttered which was awesome because, really, who needs buttered bread when you can just dip it in chili and sour cream? The dish was full of flavours and loveliness. There were peppers, tomatoes and many kinds of beans. Beeeannnns. Chickpeas were awesome in there. I don't know about you but I don't see a chili with chickpeas that often. Or ever. It was nice and spicy, just the way I like it/it should be. Very fragrant too; you could smell a bunch of spices in there like cumin and chilis. What I didn't like as much was the amount of liquid in there. Doesn't it look like chili soup on the picture? The other thing I wasn't totally fond of was the way the cheese was cut. I thought they were going to grate it and that it would be a melting fountain of cheesy goodness buuuuut no. That was a tad disappointing. The sour cream gave that contrast of temperature in my mouth that I really like:hot chili, cold sour cream. Mmmm just dip the bread in both and you got yourself a chili dream come true!
I just had to have a hot chocolate. Its just so good! And look, they drew a flower for me! Aaaaaw! It was just like I remembered it: smooth, silky, thick, very chocolaty and nutty! Totes going back soon for another one of these bad boys.

Service was aight. the girl at the counter was hooooooot AND nice. A perfect 10! Hahaha! But seriously. I asked for chili and for a hot chocolate and then I thought ew, that dson't go together and she suggested I could have the drink kind of as a dessert and I was like whoa you're smart too? We ordered and went to sit outside and i think we only waited a couple minutes for our food. But no water... We actually had to go and ask for some inside. -8 points right there.

And now, the scores!

Food: 8
Service: 7.5

Well I'm obviously going back for at least a hot chocolate and perhaps a kimchi grilled cheese that I haven't tried yet. Oh. Kimchi grilled cheese. On second thought, I'm going back tomorrow :p
