I’m not sure if you remember when I once ordered a Stamina Don from Xuan Feng Restaurant through DeliverEat.
Here, a picture to refresh your memory…
I remember enjoying this pack of delivery meal, but I guess you could tell that in terms of appearance, it isn’t the most appetizing. Which is understandable, since the food was packed in a container.
Well, since the actual restaurant has moved to Elit Avenue (somewhere on the way home from work from where I live in), I figured it was time to pay the restaurant a little visit. After all, I used to enjoy their food quite a bit when they were still at Krystal Point.
I also figured it was appropriate to order the same thing that I ordered through delivery. So… Stamina Don it is!
Look at that. I mean,
Seriously, would you just look at that?!
My Stamina Don was served in a nice clay bowl, with runny egg yolk instead of hard boiled egg. Runny egg yolk which I would break and mix it up with the rice, yumsss. I also got a complimentary bowl of soup which did not make it into the delivery meal pack.
Most important though, was that the pork belly slices were even more delicious than I remember the delivery meal was, thanks to not being covered up in plastic container and forced to turn somewhat soggy.
One thing that kind of ticked me off somewhat a little though… I’m pretty sure you noticed the difference in color of the pork. Maybe they saved on the sauce when cooking to offset the increased cost for the plastic container?
If my guess is right, then… not good. If you want to get a slice of the food delivery action, you should be ready to deal with the container’s cost without compromising anything on the customers’ side. Remember, the customers are also paying more per meal by ordering your food through delivery. We pay 10% admin fee and RM 3 fixed delivery charges per order. You should workout your compensation with DeliverEat instead of giving delivery meals special handling.
I hope my guess is wrong though. I’m probably wrong. It was probably a one off. Anyway, it is not like I order delivery from this restaurant again in the near future. I’ll probably just come and dine in…
