Summer is (almost) upon us, which means more opportunities to be away from home for travel and fun (one can only hope)! While on whatever adventures you have planned this year, you may find yourself needing to pick a decent restaurant. If you’re slaving over real, fresh, local, homemade food for your family when you’re at home, then why compromise those values when you’re out to eat? The good news is, you don’t have to!
Today, I am summarizing what I usually (politely) ask at restaurants in order to get a feel for how they do things. The answers to these questions are very good indicators of how “from scratch” their offerings really are! And, don’t worry about any annoyed waiters spitting in your food when you’re looking the other way. Restaurants that do things right are darn proud of it and usually glad you’re even asking! 🙂
One other thing I notice when eating out is the sanitation score. Those scores are usually pretty high, so you know if it’s anything less than a 97/96 then they did something wrong. So I usually ask, “Why is your posted score a 92?” Often it’ll be something simple like a labeling issue in their walk-in fridge, which may not be too concerning. However, it’s always good to know before they prepare your food.
On that note, something we always love to have with us at restaurants (especially when traveling) are some packets of Handzies! I’m a big hand washer, and depending on where you’ve been prior to eating, you sometimes need more than a little squirt of soap to do the job. So, we love how this sponsor of ours offers little packets of “soap and water” derived from natural ingredients—read: no unwanted chemicals or unnecessary additives included—that are perfect for wiping down your hands, the table, a chair (or high chair), or whatever needs a little refresh before you dig in.
Please share below what questions you ask restaurants that I may have missed!
