Food Secrets You Should Know/Part 3
With inflation going crazy, food establishments both corporate and family businesses are raising prices for all their dishes. They are also reducing the value (quantity) and cutting corners where they can. So, at the end of the meal, you saw the bill and almost had a heart attack and then you ask yourself what did I get for the money and leave totally unsatisfied and even pissed.
Is there an alternative? Yes, Chinese take out was the best, you got good value and a reasonable price.
Covid took a hit on all food business. Getting the customer back was ongoing, but inflation put a dent on higher prices, so before Covid, you could get Chinese takeout and get value and reasonably pries, but no longer.
I teach at the local community college and I teach my students about traditional dishes with unique flavors and not excessive sweet & salty sauces and not deep fried.
Now, I show them how to make Chinese takeout dishes, cheaper and better value and very cheaper cost.
From beef with broccoli using top round beef that's tough and show them how to make it so tender like filet mignon texture or buy a 2 lb bag of 16-20 shrimp for about on average $18.99 coming out to $ 9.50 a pound which gives you 20 nice szie shrimp. (there would be about 16-20 shrimp per pound) versus take out and if your lucky you'll get 4 large shrimp with lots of vegetables?
So, right now its not worth buying Chinese takeout. Take my class and you'll learn so much by saving money and eating better.
