Figuring out Siargao

Recommended Posts

From my experience of the restaurant industry as a consumer the biggest issue for me is the staff. I've lost count of the times I enter a restaurant and have to call a waitress over. They then take your order and leave, returning 5 minutes later to tell you an item is out of stock. You order something else then wait another 5 minutes to be told that is also out of stock. I eventually ask them what they have and order that then the others persons meal arrives and is eaten before I even see mine. 

I usually order drinks with my meal and again they wait until the meal is ready before bringing you the drinks or if you order rice with a meal they bring the rice out and 5 minutes later the rest of the meal comes out to join the by now cold rice.

I've got a friend staying with me who has restaurant experience and his blood boils with the incompetence. I even jokingly suggested he tells them how it should be done just so I can hear the " Yes Sir" and nothing changing. :571c66d400c8c_1(103):

Out of a good few hundred places I've eaten over here only one or two do the staff pounce on you asking if you'd like to order a drink while selecting your meal. This tends to keep me happy as I can drink and chat with my friends without thinking when my meal is going to come out. I then find I order at least one more drink before my meal is finished. Multiply this by the amount of customers in an average restaurant and that's a serious amount of money to lose out on. Only one restaurant has even suggested a starter to accompany my drink which made me chuckle a little. I'd ordered a San Mig Light and he suggested I accompany that with Buffalo wings as it compliments the beer.

Someone said "DO YOUR HOMEWORK." Better advice was never given. Research all the ways employees, landlords and everyone else can steal from you.
