I've been following a new discount website that delviers a daily special at a local business to my email. It can be 60-, 70- or 80% off the original price. Kinda fun.
Forgive me if I laugh.
Today the discount was at a "Tex-Mex" restaurant in Priatininga. You may recall I recently saw this place out of the window of my passing bus and thought I might go there.
Well, according to the "discount" opportunity the usual chicken wrap costs R$19.50 (offered today for an exciting R$7.00). WTF? A chicken wrap for $20?! There is problably R$2.00 worth of food in that item. Where do Brazilian restaurantuers come up with this stuff? Can you say highway robbery!?
Sorry guys -- never.
Back in San Francisco you can get a "wrap" or a burrito for US$4 that is as big as you arm and impossible to eat in one sitting.
