I hate Pret. I’ve tried the food here again and again, but I still hate Pret. Before going into why I hate Pret, I may as well go into the good points of Pret.
The good things are as follows:
- Many convenient locations around Manhattan.
- Faster food than McDonald’s. The food sits in a refrigerated or heated display.
- Prices are around ten dollars.
- Offers some choices, mostly sandwiches, salads, and soup.
Despite these considerations, I still hate Pret. Pret to me symbolizes desperation and price gouging. I have never eaten Pret out of desire, I have always eaten it because I needed something fast and not too expensive. Even still, the food at Pret is overpriced. I look at a cup of soup or a square sandwich cut in half and I wonder to myself, “how the hell is this worth five to ten dollars?”
And the taste. Man. I know people who like Pret. To me however, I feel like I’m eating t.v. dinners. It just tastes like this preserved crap that they microwaved a few minutes ago. Maybe they do make their food fresh. I wouldn’t know, because it tastes like you just took it out of some plastic wrap and put it one display. If I wanted food like this, I would go buy a trash scone from Starbucks.
In conclusion, I hate this place. I hate it and yet I will likely come by and get something again because I am hungry and short on time. Damn you, Pret.
