I do love food and I love getting dressed up to go out to eat especially lunch!
I remember years ago there was a lot of Dept of Health officers running around Adelaide doing regular checks of restaurants and cafes etc.. you know the hygiene in the kitchen, food storage, temperatures of food stuffs etc. If food wasn’t eaten at the table you would ask for a doggie bag to take it home for the dog! The waitress would inform you “It is against the law to allow anyone to take food home.” Ok, so why has this changed? Beats the hell out of me.. Now you can take most leftovers home from anywhere and no one cares..
But enough of that. I have been enjoying going out to lunch lately and I’ve begun writing my ratings on the venue for you to see for yourself. I’m finding most eating places have reasonable prices so if you have $30 on you, you can go out for a lovely meal with your friend or partner. That’s not a costly lunch either but you will be able to afford a good choice from the menu.
I give my rating and justification for it on my Facebook page so please join me on there. I will give you the honest truth about the venue and rate it on…. Food freshness,quality, quantity, selection.
Decor ambiance, cleanliness,
Prices good value
Kids kids meals
and most of all whether it is suitable to go to eat if you’re on Marilyn’s Plan for Weight Loss.
It might sound strange of me to include the weight loss rating but if you’re on My Plan and you’re going out to eat, you will be glad I said it suits the Plan but most venues have enough of a selection for you to choose a good meal without worrying whether you should eat it or not.
I’ve been eating out a lot of late and enjoying myself immensely, taking a retired chef with me for their expert opinion and I can always count on having a child or two tagging along for their view on a meal. It’s not necessary for me to divulge to anyone who I am or what I’m doing until the end of the meal and I go to pay for it. I am quite happy to compliment the chef/cook and inform them how happy I and my guests were and I will be adding a review on my FB page. Many a face glows at the thought of this. It’s free advertising for them after all and I’m all for helping anyone or business if they are deserving. If I or my guests are disappointed in the meal, the service or the value, I will say nothing. I probably won’t tell you either because someone might just be having a bad day. If there is a health issue and I’m an expert in the filed of food hygiene, storage, cooking etc… I will inform the authorities and then post my experience.
So take heart. I’m not in the business of running places down, just letting the public know of my wonderful experience on the day.
