I am one man who loves to eat. Ask any of my friends. At my first
business trip to Nashville with a partner at my law firm, the partner came back
and all he can say was “she ate a whole rack of rib by herself.” When I go out
with my friends, I always get this “my gosh” look that I would finish everything
that order. Usually, I can eat my plate and help me friends with their plate as
well. Anyway, I have proven my point that I can eat.
My favorite food is Chinese. When I dine at a Chinese restaurant, the first dish that I would look for is hot and soup. Lucky me - hot and sour soup happens to be on every Chinese take-out menu in the United States. I made this discover about hot and sour soup in Chinese restaurants when I went to college. Now that I know hot and sour soup is everywhere, I need to find the best hot and sour soup. To accomplish this goal, would order hot and sour soup at Chinese restaurants both for dine in or take-out. I just love hot and sour soup.
As I ventured into more Chinese restaurants, I made another great discovery. If the hot and sour soup is good, all the other dishes would be wonderful. In most Chinese take-out restaurants, the chef makes a large pot full of hot and sour soup everyday. All chefs have their own special way of making the soup. I can tell if when a chef puts his heart and soul into making that hot and sour soup. Chinese cooking is an art. As such, if the chef loves what he does, the food would be very yummy. Next time you do take out or dine in at a Chinese restaurant, test out the hot and sour soup before you order.
Top Three Advice to Chinese Take-Out Restaurant Owners
Advice # 1: Quality
To keep your customers coming back, please make sure that you offer quality food and services. Too many Chinese restaurants have gotten away from it. The word will spread quickly that you are doing it better than the rest.
Advice #2: Cleanliness
Too many Chinese take-out restaurants forget about this one. Remember customers can see much more of your take-out restaurant than most other restaurants. All places should be kept clean that includes the illuminated menu and the cup that the pencils are in. If a customer can see it, it should be kept clean. The 1 hour a day will pay back for ever, it worked for McDonalds.....
Advice #3: Clean Uniforms
The chefs should look like cooks with their nice clean white uniform. Clean cooks shirt, clean apron, clean pants. The person in the front taking orders should be nicely dressed and organize his/her work area. A clean looking staff makes the customers feel comfortable and wanting to come back for more delicious food. If your take-out menu is online, please tell your customers of this convenience. This way, your customers can easily order your Chinese food via the online Chinese menu that you have posted.
