Re: The cost of eating out
Damdan I am glad you started this thread because it (and the many responses) reaffirms my belief that one of the biggest challenges we face as an industry is that our products are becoming less and less affordable to our target market. And while there certainly is an element of greed among some operators, the majority of this is caused by the ever increasing cost of doing business. So we have to tighten our belts even more and get very very clever. With recession looming, we are in for a tough time.
However, I do believe there will always be a healthy market for humble places offering tasty, good-value cuisine in a comfortable environment. I think some places needs to make sure they get those basics right first and then build upon that.
