Knowing Filipinos, we like to treat our families or friends. And there are just times when someone asks and treats you and your family out for lunch or dinner in the restaurants in Greenbelt Makati, of course, saying ‘no’ is the least you can do.
Unlike other restaurants, fine dining in Manila can sometimes be demanding. There are a lot of things that you must keep in mind when in fine dining. And if you don’t want to be embarrassed while eating a good and delicious food, try to remember these simple don’ts in fine dining and, apply it of course.
- Annoying Kids
Carefree and playful, yes they are!
When you decide to bring your kids or your younger brother or sister, make sure that they behave. You have to tell them that shouting, roaming and running around the restaurant is a big no. Let them understand that when they do, they might annoy and disturb the people who are also eating in that restaurant. And you even don’t want them to stumble and break things that are expensive.
Another thing, making a mess out of their plate is also a big no. When your kids are still too young to eat on their own, spoon feed them so as not to waste food out of their plate.
- Noisy mouth while chewing
Ugh! This is annoying!
There are just people who tend to eat and chew their food noisily, and it’s absurd! Some people called it ‘eating like a pig.’ Anybody, who hears it will feel gross. Please don’t do that when you are in the fine dining restaurants if you don’t want to feel embarrassed. Trust me, it is really embarrassing when someone will tell you to eat and chew your food silently.
Of course, you can definitely talk while eating. That is also one way you can bond and share your experiences with others. Just don’t crunch your food that everybody can hear it. It will kill the mood of those people who enjoy eating their food.
And another thing, when you sip your soup or hot coffee, do not sip it too loud. It is unpleasant to hear sipping it loudly. Except when you are in the other country where you must sip the soup or hot coffee to express that you like and appreciate the food that is served.
- Using of utensils noisily
Fine dining restaurants usually use glass plates, which is why whenever we use our spoon and fork to eat, we make sounds. And that is totally acceptable, but not to the extent that it is too noisy that can already disturb and annoy other people inside the restaurant. Be moderate since we can’t avoid making the sound on our plates out of it.
And another thing, as much as possible, do not eat with your bare hands unless it is needed. Well, we can say it is unsightly eating with your bare hands especially when you are in a fine dining restaurant. You can use your fingers tho when it is really needed but not the entire hand. Always use spoon and fork.
- Laughing out loud and chatting loudly
Yes! This is also annoying!
Sometimes, when the topic is exciting and we are so eager to express our feelings, we tend to talk or laugh it out loudly forgetting that we can disturb and annoy other people who are also eating in that restaurant. Yes, we all know that we have the freedom of expressing, but we also have to be considerate of the people who don’t want to hear your talks.
Always be moderate in everything you do, coz it is also not good when you do things over.
