Well Fed

Beijing, China

I love restaurant service here. No tipping and consistantly great service. Sunday I dined at a Korean restaurant. I orded two dishes - more than enough for one person. But I forgot that the Korean tradition includes small appetizers at even the littlest, low budget restaurant. They gave me four, no extra cost. But this was high end-ish in China which meant they also gave me fresh fruit for dessert, no extra cost. Then they followed that with a small scoop of ice cream, no extra cost. Lastly they gave me two sticks of gum with my receipt. That's a first for me in China. Still no extra cost.

Well, I"m sure they figure all this in to their pricing. The seafood crepe and sweet rice dumplings cost me $6.50.

How's that commercial go? Seafood crepe, $4. Sweet rice dumplings, $2.50. Four appetizers, fresh fruit, ice cream and gum? Priceless.
