Eating is an art and ordering is a technology.
But these days, there are too many problems on the menu. How to order delicious and healthy dishes?
Today, Dr. Clove took the restaurant owner + chef + nutritionist to order food together. Such a powerful configuration, even if you can’t eat five-star dishes, you should also let everyone point out the feeling of five stars.
Restaurant Owner: There is only one dish I can’t order.
That is, vegetables with stale raw materials.
Especially those smaller restaurants may not even have the < < Catering Service License > > and < < Business License > >, let alone ensure the freshness of raw materials.
The boss knows the boss best and wants to save costs and make profits as much as possible. He also knows the cost of raw materials best. Therefore, if it is a very small restaurant with poor business, such as seafood or big fish and meat, it is better not to order them.
Small restaurants are small in area and tight in space, and food stocks are often not satisfactory.
Secondly, the consumption habits of the guests in small restaurants are more common. The sales volume of [hard dishes] such as seafood and big fish and meat is not high, and the raw materials are easy to accumulate and not very fresh.
The restaurant owner only analyzes from the perspective of cost, but ordering depends on the way the dishes are ordered, which requires the chef who knows the best how to cook.
Chef: I’m sure I won’t order these two dishes
As a person who stands in the back kitchen smelling lampblack, making a lot of greasy dishes and dealing with oil every day, the chef knows best how much oil he uses.
1. Dried stir-fried vegetables and dried pot vegetables
Stir-fried beans, stir-fried green beans, dried pot cauliflower, dried pot cabbage… It feels quite plain to listen to the name of the dish, but in fact they are the heaviest oil and salt.
Because dry pots and stir-fried dishes want to achieve [spicy and fresh fragrance], most ingredients have a [oiling] process (to put it bluntly, it is similar to frying), and finally a lot of salt has to be added.
2. [Boiled Vegetables]
Boiled fish and boiled meat may be the two most commonly ordered [boiled dishes], but everyone who has eaten them knows that these dishes are not [boiled], but [boiled in oil].
The point is, because oil is not cheap, some chefs will use the oil left over from many frying times to make [boiled vegetables], which is not very good.
Everyone knows that eating too greasy is not good, but people still need to be happy when they are alive, so these dishes can be eaten occasionally, but not often.
Chefs can only help everyone here. As for how to eat healthier and have more balanced nutrition, please ask nutritionists to talk about it.
Nutritionist: I will definitely not order these three kinds of dishes.
1. Thick soup, white soup… All kinds of delicious soup
In order to stimulate everyone’s tongue, these soups are generally added with a lot of soup such as chicken essence, monosodium glutamate and meat essence, which are very salty and contain a lot of sodium.
However, the white color in the thick soup stewed slowly with old fire is really either nutritious or full of fat. Some of them are simply brewed with emulsified soup powder for the sake of good color.
2. Di San Xian, fried coupling, chopped green onion crisp cake… various [staple food dishes]
When there are food and staple food, it is better not to order [staple food] containing a lot of oil, salt and sugar.
For example, sour and spicy potato shreds, ground three fresh, fried coupling, chopped green onion crisp cakes, leek boxes, hemp balls… These dishes are actually starch staple foods with amazing calories.
A bowl of rice covered with potato shreds may be equal to three bowls of rice.
If you don’t eat rice, you can order [abundant grain], including sweet potatoes, purple potatoes, corn… In this way, you can not only eat a little of everything, but also help control blood sugar and blood lipid.
3. Stewed hen, roasted whole fish, braised pork… seemingly rich but actually monotonous dishes
These are all [hard dishes]. They can fill half a table when ordered and look very rich. But in fact, they are relatively single in nutrition, and their weight is not small, so they are easy to eat and support.
Fish, red meat, white meat, eggs and bean products can all provide high-quality protein, and one or two of them are enough for a large table of dishes.
If nutritionists have some, it must be steamed fish, stewed meat, blanched seafood… Of course, the amount should be smaller.
Doctor Clove: When you’re done, there are not many dishes you can order.
After hearing this introduction, Dr. Clove was glad:
Fortunately, there are not too many opportunities to order food from a restaurant, otherwise there will be no food to order!
Of course, Dr. Clove still has to think of everyone. It is better for everyone to eat healthily at ordinary times. According to what they said, it is right.
However, it is still the most important thing to be happy when you meet delicious food occasionally.
