Last lunch outing for the year

December 30th, 2009 at 10:54 am

Today was my monthly lunch with friends; we went the casino again but to a different restaurant this time. They have charged the rules there. Early on you could get a meal for $10.00 with Coffee and Cake with about 10 different meals to choose from with table service, now it has charged a great deal, it self service in that you get your own tray, cutlery and napkin tell the chef which meal you are having then you move on to get a cake if you are having that then to cashier.

Most of us a have members cards but different colours so if you white one which by the way most do have that one then you are classed a non-member and need to paid $14.00 for same thing as before but the menu for this meal now is a pick of two dishes only, all other meals are $9.00 or $12.00 and extra for coffee & cake of $6.90. Personally I was not happy with the meal today but our lot the majority wins!

So next month we may go back and see what the other restaurant has in store for us. They may be changing the rule there too!

So I had Chicken Kiev but I have seen the same piece of heart shaped chicken in the supermarket deli as Chicken Schnitzel pieces for about $2.50 each. I had to pay $14.00 less my Senior 5% off for it with small salad and chips along cake & coffee. It was better the two beef rissoles I would think!

    Maybe the restaurant is trying to cut costs?? This way, they don't have to have so many wait staff, I bet. We are all feeling a little bit of a pinch in this economy. I guess this is no surprise.

    It was awfully quite there at casino, it would a cost cutting exercise I agree with you there. I will be only going there now if I am with friends in the past I did go if wanted a meal when in the city on my own, now I will buy meals in the food courts around the city instead. I will save a few dollars and will be not playing the poker machines as much so they lose out in the end if everyone has the same idea.
