Why water in Switzerland cost more than a Espresso or a beer?
2023.05.28 14:00 Candid_Judgment Why water in Switzerland cost more than a Espresso or a beer?
Usually i go to the restaurant or when i'm in vacation and everytime i watch the menu i see this "no-sense". How is possible that the beer is cheaper than water(sometimes i saw 7 chf for 1 L of water and 5 chf for 0.33 of beer)? There is a cultural or social thing about that?

2023.05.28 13:21 pleadinginsanity2 Chinese buffet?
Hello everybody, I was out of Anchorage for several years and came back and then COVID hit. I'm wanting to go to a good Chinese buffet restaurant, but all of the ones I used to like are closed now. I was wondering if anybody had some recommendations for a good one. I've searched Yelp and there's a couple Mongolian barbecues but there's not much detail. I'm really more interested in the regular buffet part but don't have a preference on the Mongolian barbecue. Just looking for some suggestions for a good place to go. Haven't been to one in years and my favorite place and food is Chinese buffet and it's kind of a special occasion with my daughter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am also interested in the atmosphere. It does not need to be fancy but I've been in the hospital and I would like to explain some personal stuff to my daughter without somebody sitting directly next to me hearing my conversation. It would be nice if there was a place where I could talk quietly and keep it private.

2023.05.28 11:33 jumpinjacks12345 May 2023 Report/Tips: Venice, Florence, Tuscany, Cinque Terre
We just got back, Italy is magical. Only been to Rome once before as part of Europe hopping trip about 10 years ago. Some thoughts and tricks on our 10 nights, hope it's helpful for others:
Weather: Don't stress too much on forecasts even a week out. Check before leaving and adjust wardrobe or add a light rain jacket if needed. Originally our entire trip showed rain the whole time. Realistically there was a 1 drizzly day in Venice and 2 hour of rain (ominous with thunder) in Florence. The rest of the time was cloudy or beautiful and clear. Cinque Terre was absolutely clear and 70, but dang that sun when hiking was brutally hot. App: Il Meteo Download WhatsApp
- everyone including hotels, restaurants, business, taxi driver (see below) uses it.
Esim: Airalo worked well for us Samsung S22 and Pixel 6. Did have to reboot my S22, but worked really well and between the 2 of us used about 5GB so couldn't gone with less data. One phone did the Europe regional and another the Italy Mamma Mia one. Some restaurants do have dead zones, some have Wifi, another was like these signs on the wall are your wifi....
Driving: You definitely need a car for Tuscany if you want to be on your own timetable, we rented out of Florence and returned in La Spezia. Beware some of the routes on Google Maps, although reliable there were 2 instances we went off roading when an asphalt road was right there. Then we needed to u-turn on the outskirts of Pisa and it was trying to get us to make this impossible stone walled turn and the locals were like yeah Google Maps has people do this and no one has made that so just turn back around. Also lesson learned for us - just do the rental company insurance, event though my credit card offers primary, we got a larger mid size SUV vs Fiat 500 and with the narrow streets, for me the reduced stress would've been worth it when we had to wiggle the car out some spots - but we came out scratch free. On a side note, we got a Lynk & Co car, which was neat and loved Android Auto as we use it at home. Rented thru Hertz. If you use the toll roads (which can make your life a lot faster sometime), make sure you grab a ticket coming in, we didn't get one for 1 segment, luckily getting off of it, the remote attendant spoke english, a little annoyed, but let us pay the fare from where we came from.
Parking: The meters we encountered in Montepulciano, Siena, Pisa seemed straight forward but sometimes card wouldn't work, the english translation was bad and cancelled out transaction multiple times. Just download EasyPark
which seems to work everywhere, GPS your zone, link to GooglePay or credit card, license and boom, spin the clock - small fee less than 10%, but damn was it easy and you can add time or end early....
Trains: Download Trenitalia app,
book any train instantly, get train status (where is the train currently), and see any station's timetable. Our Venice to Florence train did get delayed and stopped here and there in Bologna one weekend due to the flood damage, luckily our train wasn't cancelled. 5 days later, all trains seems to be back on track. Missed the big 5/26 strike by one day but I was seeing some trains via the app still scheduled. Basically be mentally prepared for any issues, booked an InterCity (assigned seats) from La Spezia to Pisa ahead of time but day of just waited to see when to schedule the regional from Pisa to Florence, so easy via app and you can see how often they run (30 mins for this route) and buy on demand as your schedule permits.
Booking museums/sights: It can be very tricky to google and find official booking sites as there are a lot of 3rd parties who want to get you a "front of the line pass" with a tour for a large markup. So I tried to book thru official sites as much as I can, for the life of us we couldn't get the Doges official to go through so did get those from Get the Guide for less than 5 euro markup for 2. If you are flexible and go off hours, you can do standby and avoid the nominal online booking fee and time spot, we only did these for some, not all. Maybe don't listen to me during summer months. But we did very little waiting - see below
Food: Note that I found classic italian cooking is much more simple, subtle and just pure flavors. Stuff was beautiful but by California standards, a tad underseasoned although some places did put out salt and pepper (default not request) for some dishes like a burrata. This is also coming from here in SoCal where birria is not enough it's birria ramen and hot cheetos encrusted this or that and 5 different types of toppings for mac and cheese - you know stuff for Instagram.... But I totally appreciated the approach and loved it.
Cities - we tend to do a lot on vacation, it may have been a touch quick but it was so fun, we did get a bit sick just with all the weather and change but nothing serious but was glad to get the downtime in Tuscany, we hit it hard first 2 places Venice and Florence. You may vacation differently, this was also our first trip abroad in 7 or so years so wanted to see ALLTHETHINGS.
Accommodations - We did mostly Airbnb which in Europe requires a meetup vs self check in. Did an incredible bed and breakfast (see Montepulciano) and finally a hotel in Florence for last night which I highly recommend for location and service - Arte Boutique (they helped me track down a lost backpack in a taxi, see below).
Safety - felt pretty safe and not scammy in all of our cities our Airbnb host in Florence said Italy overall is safe but he did confirm Rome you need to be more aware. Honestly we only carried 350 euro with us from US bank and that was plenty, near the end we were needing to use it up as everyone takes card, tap to pay, ApplePay and GooglePay freely. Taxi drivers do prefer cash
Staying calm story - we were ending our trip from Florence to airport in in my rush I left my backpack in backseat of taxi, it was gone before I realized we had our rollers and his backpack and duffel but not mine. Luckily my husband was like ok we will call the hotel (the only one we happened to book) who arranged the taxi, and luckily they tracked him down and he came back due to us allotting tons of time before departure. I had to pay the fare again for the backpack fare but was so relieved. We corresponded via WhatsApp after making the initial call to hotel.
Venice: 2 nights
- Sights: Doges (booked via Get the Guide) was cool, not the biggest museum person. Walk over Bridge of Sighs was uneventful from inside. St Mark Basilica had no advance tickets, but did standby for 3 eupp about 20 min before opening and got in within 10 mins, then hopped over to Campanile Tower w/o tickets, no line around 9-9:30 AM - great views.
- Eat: Faves were the quick bites chichetti (All'Arco, Cantina Do Spade), coffee and pastries and gelato (loved Suso). Our sit downs were not bad, just not mind blowing at Ai Mercanti and Imprompta (although seafood good). Also there's a small bar inside Cafe Florian if you want a macchiato for under 5 euro vs sitting down for a 12 euro cappucino and want a mini experience w/o wait.
It can be crowded mid-day but will calm down, very cool to walk or take vaparetto around and get lost, oops this alley dumps into a canal....
Florence: 2 nights
- Sights: Prebooked Galleria Accademia (a must, always a line), good museum experience if you don't necessarily need hours, so neat to see David here. Because not huge museum people, passed on the Uffuzi. Someone at lunch said hey Medici is cool, so did that on a whim w/o any wait and very cool, glad we did it on the fly. Prebooked Boboli Gardens, kinda tired by the time we got here and it had been drizzly and a bit humid, but nice to stroll. The larger fountain area you can't walk through anymore (Ocean fountain?). Also Piazza Michaelangelo for the Florence city center view. Lots of great shopping here, suggest start at Vale for a leather shop.
- Food: Ok so All Antico Vinaio although touristy is legit sandwich, very good and worth it. Tip: go to San Marco location, smaller wait by Galleria Accademia. GustaPizza was legit and very reasonable 7 euro for Margherita?! Fave gelato was Gelato Dei Neri and My Sugar. Mercato Centrale super cool to walk, shop for products, eat if you like. Trattoria Mario, email ahead for reservations - 1.1 kg florentine steak with small sides and salami/cheese plate all for under $70. Dall'Oste was good florentine but much pricier and touristy but had a good Montalcino wine there, book on website for discount for seatings outside of peak times, our 6 PM had 15% discount on food.
Tuscany: 2 nights Montepulciano, 1 night Siena
So beautiful, just the drive through Val D'Orcia. We stopped by San Gimignano and did the tower with no wait (150 stairs), Gelateria Donderia is overrated but fine, GO GO GO to Da'A'Mariani for sandwich here, sweet sweet man and just off the main street - recommended by Pasticcheria Il Criollo which was fabulous just outside city wall.
Stayed in Montepulciano, which was SO fabulous. Our true bed and breakfast was only 3 suites run on a property by 2 americans who moved to Italy - true hospitality and modern yet italian suite. They are booked solid this year, but it was sooo special. Huge breakfast spread every morning. It was true paradise there and the owners are gems - made awesome restaurant recommendations and reservations, driving route, etc. DM me if you want the name but don't bet on getting in for 2023. Restaurants in Montepulciano were Osteria Porto Di Baccio - great antipasto meat/cheese and pici, great typical osteria in wine cave then Le Logge Vignola which was very creative for a very reasonable price - you definitely need reservations for both maybe a few days ahead as both are fully booked by dinner. Gelato recc here would be Scarbia.
Siena - had the Siena OPA Si pass which I recommend, everything except the roof tour. Cathedral inside is a sight to see and includes works by Michaelangelo and Dontatello - ask worker where they are at, definitely do panaroma. This was helpful https://www.earthtrekkers.com/how-to-visit-the-siena-cathedral/
Walk to PastaZuf down the way from Piazza Campo for legit casual takeway pasta for 5-6 euro
Cinque Terre: 2 nights Riomaggiore
Yup, did Pisa as a quick stop on way to drop off car, it's neat and lots of parking (EasyPark app) to get in/out.
Stayed in Riomaggiore, CT is definitely touristy during the day but quiets down. Rick Steves was right, not overhyped. Every city is absolutely gorgeous. Did the hike from Monterosso-Vernazza-Corniglia - yes the HARD way with those stairs first leg but it was very rewarding and fun, can be tight in spots, started at 8 AM and ended in Corniglia around 11:15, start early as you can for less crowds. Train makes it easy to hop towns. Dinners included Rio Bistrot in Riomaggiore (checked in at lunch for dinner reservation same night) and Ristorante Belforte - both great views and suprisingly great food! Tasting menu is way to go at Rio Bistrot. Quick bites include fried seafood, so good. Be prepared for all the elevation/stairs/walking.
Edits: Add safety section, accommodations, and staying calm story.

2023.05.28 10:08 RisingVelocity Having difficulty remembering the food menu at my restaurant. Starting to feel discouraged
So I just started bartending at a highly rated Latin restaurant downtown. Food is amazing, cocktails are superb, the team is friendly and cooperative. Compared to the rest of the market in my area it has its own pillar to stand on in terms of brand recognition.
It’s very early for me to have a definitive say on how everything is within the restaurant but so far it’s been exceptional well.
With that being said there’s one main hurdle that has been a hinderance to me.
The food menu.
99% of the dishes are Latin themed. I am very unfamiliar with majority of them which has been rough in terms of me having to remember what the recipes are and issues pronouncing the words correctly.
Since I started last week I’ve mandatory training as different positions throughout the restaurant from food runner to host to familiarize myself with the menu and the flow of the establishment (I had to do this before I could start bar training). I have also been studying when I’m not at work but it’s just not enough for the restaurant’s expectations.
I’ve only been at the restaurant for a week and the head manager is expecting me to have the food menu memorized 100%. So much so that whenever a manageowner ask me what goes in a particular dish I can recall every single detail. The past couple of days the head manager has approached me on several occasions and quizzed me on the spot.
Earlier tonight during closing we were discussing the cocktail menu when I got quizzed on the entire menu again. I had at least half the food somewhat memorized but it just wasn’t enough. There’s been a few times the head manager has gotten a little annoyed with me not remembering which has been disappointing. I’ve apologized to him and said that I’m more of a visual/hands on learner and it will take me a little more time to remember the food menu, especially with having to study and memorize the bar menu as well.
If it took someone else just a week to remember the restaurant’s menu then congratulations to them but that’s just not me.
Tonight during he made a comment that if I can’t remember the menu by at least this upcoming Wednesday/Thursday then I will not be scheduled at all. This nuked my mood for the remainder of my night after work.
Honestly I don’t know if it’s because of the sudden pop quizzes but it causes me to not think clearly and mispronounce the Latin dishes like an idiot. It’s gotten to the point I just freeze up or say the wrong ingredient.
In my 8 years of bartending I have never had this much trouble with a new food menu before.
I am getting extremely discouraged because I wanted to be a part of this restaurant’s bar so badly but having to remember the food menu will be the end of me even before I can begin. I honestly don’t know if I am capable of remembering the entire menu by the middle of next week.

2023.05.28 08:24 ggchappell Chicken Mole Recipe Needed
Once upon a time, I traveled to San Antonio (Texas). When I got there, a couple of friends took me to a mom & pop hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant. I was tired and grumpy from some very long flights & layovers, and I didn't feel like reading a menu. I was told to order chicken mole. I did. It was heavenly. I would like to know how to make it.
I have since learned that there are a zillion kinds of mole. I'm looking for a chicken dish with a dark brown sauce that I'm told contains chocolate as an ingredient. Possibly this sauce is called mole negro (?).
I can google all this, of course. I did. The hits include lots of recipes, many with ingredients that strike me as improbable, like pumpkin seeds, peanuts, raisins, and Ritz crackers. There are a few recipe sites that I trust; none of them has a chicken mole recipe.
I have also seen claims that a real mole takes something like 3 days to make. I would like to avoid that, if I can.
So, do any of you have a chicken mole recipe that is (1) reasonably authentic, (2) very good, and (3) doable in a single day?

I’m looking for a fancy Indian restaurant to host some friends from abroad for a dinner. I looked around pretty extensively on Google maps, all I see are hole-in-the-wall or stripmall restaurants. No doubt their food is good but I’m looking for a place with good ambience, and a wine list and hopefully a cocktail menu. We’re fine driving to the suburbs.

2023.05.28 05:40 lunaflorae Employee exams?
I started working in a kitchen two weeks ago and today I was informed that next week I would have to take a written test on my knowledge of the menu. The manager will schedule an exam day for me, where I'll either have to come in early or stay late to complete the test. When I first started working, I was given a binder full of recipes that I assumed were only to be used as a reference, but no, it's literally study material for the exam. In talking to my coworkers it seems that the test results determine the percentage of tips you get, and if you fail the exam then your tips will be negatively impacted. I should note it's a minimum wage job at a somewhat upscale chain restaurant.
Is this at all common practice? Is it normal, or is it an enormous red flag?

2023.05.28 04:20 Junior_Button5882 Why Did Kitchen Nightmares End? The Show's Cancelation Explained
| || | submitted by Junior_Button5882 to kitchennightmarez [link] [comments]
Gordon Ramsay's reality show Kitchen Nightmares
was immensely popular when it debuted in 2007, so it came as a surprise when it wasn't renewed for season 8. The British celebrity chef received a lot of recognition for his intense approach to cooking and unmatched passion for his craft. Gordon's heated attitude in the kitchen
brought an undeniable level of entertainment to the screen, as he used his expertise to help restaurants struggling to keep their doors open. SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
ClosePauseUnmuteCurrent Time 0:03/Duration 1:30Loaded: 9.32%Fullscreen
While Gordon has a multitude of successful shows
, Kitchen Nightmares
featured restaurants that needed a makeover in terms of their menu, service, and staff. Instead of focusing on specific cooking techniques or ingredients, the award-winning chef used his knowledge to help eateries turn their businesses around. Attempting to save establishments from closing and living to see another day was Chef Ramsay's mission, but his goal was cut short when it all came to an end in 2014. RELATED:5 Reasons Why Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare Is Iconic (5 Reasons Why It's Not)
Gordon Ramsay Axed Kitchen Nightmares
It may come as a surprise, but Gordon himself is the one who decided to put Kitchen Nightmares
on the chopping block. Typically, television networks dictate whether a show will be renewed based on ratings and viewership, but in this case, it was entirely up to the chef, and he had his reasons. According to Delish
, Gordon reached his boiling point after one of the restaurants on Kitchen Nightmares
made him want to walk away from the show entirely, and he realized he was done.
Gordon didn't reveal which particular restaurant made him quit, but he did explain that he and the restaurant owner didn't see eye-to-eye, and he felt that the owner was taking advantage of customers at his ski resort. Dealing with someone in that capacity who wasn't listening to anything he had to say influenced his decision to cancel the show. They filmed for a week, and at the end of it, that was when the chef had his show-altering epiphany.
The Revival Of Kitchen Nightmares Has The Potential To Be Perfection Kitchen Nightmares
will be returning after almost a decade off the air, but the long hiatus may be the recipe for its future success. When the brutal chef decided to close the door on the popular show, he took a break for three years and came back with another hit show, 24 Hours to Hell and Back.
If history is set to repeat itself, that means the revival of Kitchen Nightmares
has the potential to be better than ever after taking nearly ten years to whip up a new take on an old classic. Of course, Gordon won't be without his signature attitude and brazen authority in the kitchen.
At the time, canceling Kitchen Nightmares
felt like the right thing to do, and it couldn't be coming back at a better time. Unlike Gordon's other reality shows, it won't be focused on the element of competition, which will be a great change of pace. Seeing restaurants struggling in these economically difficult times will give Kitchen Nightmares
a fresh perspective, as Gordon tries to get them back on track.
2023.05.28 02:33 dzoey Offshore by the lake
Offshore has opened in the spot formerly occupaied by Clydes overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi. The decor is more open and brighter than Clydes and the view of the lake is quite pleasant.
The food is quite good. I had the vegan shrimp and grits and it was really good. I'm not vegan, but I felt like grits and I'm not a fan of shrimp so this was a good choice. The four large "shrimp" were deep fried and served on a bed of grits that covered half the plate. The other half was a lovely tomato based sauce that mixed well with the "shrimp" and grits.
My daughter didn't want a large meal so she ordered the fried calamari appetizer as her main course. It was a large bowl filled with fried calamari, baby octopi, and picked jalapeno rounds all breaded and fried to perfection. Even though it was listed as an appetizer she wound up taking half of it home because there was so much. It is served with two sauces, a tomato based sauce and a cream based sauce (remulade?). The calamari were cooked well, with just a hint of chew - just how we like them.
The only disappointment in the food was the bread basket. For $9, you get four large rolls, which in themselves were quite good. The rolls were of different types, I liked the cheddar the best, but the brioche were nothing to sneeze at. The disappointment was the Old Bay butter that they included with the bread. I get the nautical Maryland theme of the restaurant, and I'm a fan of Old Bay in general (fries, chicken, crab(dip)), but they dumped so much old bay into the butter that not only did it overpower the bread, it was too salty, detracting from the bread. Our waiter was kind enough to fetch some regular butter which worked much better.
The service was excellent. The waiter kept our glasses full, removed plates as needed, and brought the dessert menu all without us asking. He knew the menu and could answer questions about the dishes. I was impressed at how good the service was.
The total for two people (1 entree, 1 appetizer, 1 bread basket) with no alcohol was $60 pre-tip . That prices it similar to Food Market and possibly Lak (haven't been yet). I would give the nod to Food Market for the food, though Offshore's food is good, but Offshore has better ambience.

2023.05.28 02:28 EmeraldGirl Bromos- Why are you in the bad mom's club today?
I'm sitting in a "nice enough" restaurant (not fancy, but not a diner) in leggings and a hoodie. I'm 3 jack & cokes in. Milkbreath is playing Nintendo in the seat next to me and is eating his way through every side dish on the menu. I'm completely ignoring him to be on reddit. I've had a day and I don't need the side-eye from Mr & Mrs Karen in the corner. I'll stack my plates, tip better than Karen, and generally not be a witch, thanks.

2023.05.27 22:47 Totallynotshaft Anyone else here who grew so poor that fancyesque places scare them?
I grew up in a household with an abusive father . So while we did have money in retrospect , we'd only go out once a year to a restaurant and then it was the closest place around.
So now I am going out with my friends to restus and cafes which aren't high class but still fancy and I am feeling .... Weirded out?
The overly kind waiters , the nicely dressed people , the presentation and even the silly comments on the menu such as "coffee time" .
All these scare me , I feel like I'm not supposed to be there.
Part of it is that I'm still not fully set up economically and still have to watch my expenditure but damn ...
Do I fear reading french names for what is just a hamburger.

2023.05.27 21:22 WitchyOtome Do small, family-run restaurant workers hate it when you order the obligatory "safe" menu item?
There're a few small Thai restaurants that I love ordering from, but I'm always ordering the Pad Thai/Pad See Ew/other menu item clearly meant for non-Thai people. They're absolutely delicious and I tip well, but I'm always slightly embarrassed by ordering "less authentic" food. They've been nothing but polite and friendly, though.
For reference, I have quite a few food sensitivities (thanks Crohns disease ♡) but I don't usually disclose this information when I order food. I just really like the dishes and luckily it's safe for me to eat. Should I even be worried?

2023.05.27 21:20 Practical_Awareness4 I’m tipping less if…
I’m tipping less if I have to not only browse the menu but also order my food and pay in advance on my phone. I’m tipping less if u barely come back except to give me the food which I ordered on my phone. I’m tipping less because you didn’t give me my bill or ask me if I wanted any desert because I had to pay in advance on my effing phone.
That’s a 15 percent tip. Eff 20+ percent with less effort.
I’ll reveal which restaurant if y’all want.

2023.05.27 20:34 lukeigi_3 Why fast food mascots are dying.
Is it just me or does it seem like many famous fast food restaurants are no longer having mascots. This is something that has been happening for many huge fast food restaurants like McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell and many more have been discontinued.
Let’s start with McDonald’s who once had Ronald McDonald. He was created in the 60s to improve McDonald’s sales towards kids. Thought he really took off when McDonald land was introduced. Many years passed but in the early 2000s McDonald’s faced controversy for health issues and Ronald was part for advertising to kids. While he wasn’t discontinued due to that as he lasted a few more years he was eventually discontinued due to creepy clown videos on YouTube.
Another is the Burger King from the restaurant of the same name. He was with the company for a while being on the sign and used in commercials but in the 70s they introduced a version closer to what we know today who could do magic tricks to rival McDonald land. Eventually he was also discontinued and replaced by the kids club before they were discontinued. They reintroduced him in the late 2000s to promote there breakfast menu. But just recently they removed him from they’re marketing and if I had to guess it may have to do with there new marketing campaign.
It’s not like they are completely dead like there’s big boy from big boy the star from Carl’s JHardee’s and jollibee from jollibee but you get the picture. Also some companies don’t even have mascots like Starbucks,Panda Express,raising canes and many more
