[quote=“Lo Bo To”]I was there for lunch at about 1:00 a few years ago. I went with a friend. When we got there there was only one other table of people there. My friend had already eaten and ordered a drink. The owner of the place (The Wife) told him that there was a NT150 minimum. I told her that I was going to eat and that he had eaten already so wasn’t hungry.
She said that we couldn’t stay if he didn’t pay the minimum charge. We left. I never went back.[/quote]
You gotta remember, restaurateurs are not there for love and charity. How do you go to a restaurant at LUNCHTIME and you’ve already eaten???
Beats the hell outta me… how can so many places be kitted out and decorated so to the hilt, the food is such a disappointment, even an outright disgrace. This has been our experience here in Taiwan. Don’t they KNOW they’re serving swill? My solution? Open up my own place. And that is exactly what I’m doing.
