Pax Wholesome Foods (Midtown West)


Pax Midtown West


Pax’s sign claims they have “wholesome foods.” If wholesome is a euphemism for tasteless, then I guess they ain’t lyin’. The chicken wraps taste as though they’ve been sitting in the refrigerated case for a couple weeks, and the alfalfa sprouts looked about as appetizing as a bale of hay. These places only exist to prey on the busy worker who has no time to eat a real meal and thinks he is going to get something healthier than a fast food burger. So, he pays four dollars more for something labeled “healthy” and writes it off as a guilt tax. [MF]
