Last night I went out with my friends to a restaurant. It’s a family restaurant and not fancy or pretentious. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. It’s a popular spot among many of my friends. In fact one of them had eaten breakfast there yesterday morning.
I ordered a quarter chicken with a side Greek salad. The meal also came with sauce and a bun. When it arrived the chicken breast was on a luncheon sized plate, the salad was on a bread and butter plate and the sauce and bun were on a third plate. Everyone else had all the food on one dinner plate except on woman who ordered the same combo as I did. I thought maybe they didn’t want to combine the hot food with the cold food but those who ordered potatoes had coleslaw on their dinner plate. The meal included a choice of potato but I ordered a salad instead. Or so I thought. I was charged for a meal and extra for the tiny salad. I was less than impressed.
Have you ever been baffled by the presentation of a dinner in a restaurant?
