What are your pet peeves about how food is served in restaurants?
I came up with this Q because of what Auggie said on another Q of mine regarding salad being served on a plate that is too small and if you have to cut it it might fall off the sides. I hate that. I hate it with all types of food. The Q started out as. Question about whether people want salad to be chopped or big pieces. I like my chopped.
I also dislike when meat that must be cut is served in a bowl. It is not convenient to cut food that is down in a bowl.
I also am annoyed when food is served floating in any type of sauce. When I say floating I mean smothered. Whether it be a broth, red sauce, cream sauce, yuck. I don’t want anything soupy unless it is actually soup. Let the others ask for some extra sauce on the side.
Please give me a knife. Asian restaurants are most guilty of not having a knife at the place setting. I know they think everything is cut up small enough, but I probably want it cut smaller and I need my knife to help me get the food on my fork.
If I order two courses and you clear my first course before my second course comes out, I want you to take my dirty flatware and bring me new flatware for my second course. I don’t want to leave my dirty fork on my salad plate or my napkin while I wait for the next course.
