Business and Honesty

Yesterday, I went to a restaurant to get some food for lunch. There was this one dish in the menu that said "your choice of meat in garlic and pepper sauce". Hmmm... It sounded interesting to me so I ordered it with beef.

When the dish came out, I was surprised by what I saw. The plate contained mostly cabbage and lettuce, with around 15-20 small pieces of beef. What the heck?! They did not say anything about cabbage and lettuce in the menu. The menu should say "CABBAGE AND LETTUCE with your choice of meat in garlic and pepper sauce". The main point there should be the cabbage and the lettuce, not the meat.

I feel so disappointed, and cheated as well. Why? Because I'm more of a carnivore rather than a herbivore. If I knew it was going to be like that, I wouldn't order that dish especially since the price is so expensive -__-;;

All businesses should be honest, don't you think so? I really hate it when businesses have some hidden agenda or hidden fees.

    To be safe, next time, ask for full description from the waiter.
