MAN­AGE YOUR EX­PEC­TA­TIONS

JJK e-magazine - - FOOD TALK -

This first tip may sound ob­vi­ous, but peo­ple of­ten over­look it, espe­cially af­ter hear­ing pre­vi­ous cus­tomers ei­ther rav­ing or com­plain­ing about a res­tau­rant. I al­ways try to set my ex­pec­ta­tions low, then if the res­tau­rant un­der­whelms, I won’t de­spise the place.

If you’re in a res­tau­rant that has a large or fancy-worded menu, don’t be afraid to ask ques­tions about it! You cer­tainly don’t want to re­gret or­der­ing food that con­tains in­gre­di­ents you’re al­ler­gic to. Also, ask­ing about the menu can test a waiter’s un­der­stand­ing of and pas­sion for the food they serve. This is im­por­tant in de­ter­min­ing whether a res­tau­rant should be la­belled a “must-visit” based on the knowl­edge of the staff, whose pro­fi­ciency should also pro­vide some mea­sure of re­as­sur­ance that the food you’re about to or­der is up to scratch. them. Who knows, they might show their grat­i­tude by giv­ing you some­thing ex­tra that’s not on the menu.
