Restaurant Week: Sending food back
I did one Restaurant Week post already, so I am not going to go into details about this one, but there were a few things that I found interesting. Apparently, lamb done medium well is not the same as steak done medium well. This was the first time I ever sent food back, but really I could not eat the charcoaled piece of meat that was on my plate! Though, if I was quite honest with myself, I probably would have tortured through it if one other person at our table wasn’t sending their meal back in the first place.
Initially I was extremely upset about sending the food back, I didn’t want to insult the person preparing our food, however, the more I thought about it the more I realised that, regardless of whether it is Restaurant Week or not, the reason we go to restaurants and pay money is to enjoy a well prepared meal and if that is not true then the entire experience turns into a bad one.
I suppose the one saving grace of the meal – other than the apple cake – was the good company.
