Eating SFU: Renaissance Coffee

I rarely eat around SFU, but if I do I always end up at Tim Hortons or Triple O's -- just to be on the safe side.  Also, I'm usually at West Mall, so I try to opt for something closer, rather than eating at Cornerstone.  However, this semester, I've had an unusually larger number of breaks around lunch time and practically none of my classes are in West Mall, so I've started to try and eat at Cornerstone.

After three years of studying at SFU, I have admittedly never bought anything from Renaissance.  Although I don't mind tea, I really don't like to drink coffee at all, so I don't really know what I would get from there.  (Pictures in this post shot with x10.)

At our first time at the Renaissance at Cornerstone (I feel like such a freshman), we ordered the chicken salad wrap + pop ($4.99) and butter chicken wrap + tomato tortellini ($4.99 + 1.99?).

The soup was extremely sour, but I did like that there were tomato chunks.  There was a lot of vegetables inside, and there were three tortellinis in total -- they tasted okay.  I didn't taste the butter chicken wrap, but the chicken salad inside my wrap (bottom) was basically mush.  I don't understand why they didn't just dice it.  It was even mushier than tuna salad.  I didn't like it at all, though I did appreciate that the lettuce was fresher than that of Tim Horton's (always fresh -- not really at SFU).

Why is it so mushy? Even if I had a toothache I could probably eat it since it didn't even require chewing.  After thinking of reasons why, I didn't want to eat it anymore. (The idea of various chicken parts came into mind.)  Though I was quite full already because it was huge.

I probably won't be going back to Renaissance for a second time.  I'd prefer eating Tim Horton's chicken salad wrap over this any day. (Keep in mind, I'm not reviewing the coffee since I don't drink coffee.)
