Eating out is great. To leave the cooking and the dishes to someone else – if only for one night – and just sit back and relax is surely the ultimate
indulgence. Most of us who eat out have our favourite haunts where we feel comfortable, the food is good, the service is good and the place is clean. To me, this is heaven, knowing in advance that I and my friends will enjoy the experience and will not wake up the next morning with tummy ache or sickness.
Occasionally, of course, we need to try something new. Perhaps our favourite
restaurant has changed ownership and has lost some of its appeal, or perhaps
it’s time for a change for change’s sake. And, of course, if I am on vacation in
a far away land, I may have no choice in the matter. Trying a new restaurant can
be great fun – but can also be a bit of a challenge.
We all know what attributes to look for, as I said above, I want to feel
comfortable in a good atmosphere, enjoy good food, good service and, surely most
importantly, be sure the place is hygenic. And this last point surely be the
first point to look out for.
When my wife and I are checking out a new restaurant the first thing she will
do is visit the ladies room. A great deal of information about the cleanliness
of the establishment can be gathered just from visiting this place. This is
... is no longer a good place to live in the aspect of the environment, social harmony ... a hot debating issue that whether Hong Kong is a good place to live or not. This essay explains why Hong Kong ...
probably the hardest area to keep clean and is open to public inspection (or
open to 50% of the public, depending on which sex you are).
If the toilets are
filthy, are the kitchens and store rooms also in a similar state?
While my wife is busy with her surveillance, I will go on a hunt for fly
killers. As some of you may know, I am a great fan of fly killers, such as those
at Arkay Hygiene. If I can get a peek at
the kitchens, I will fully expect to see a good brand of fly killer machine,
fully operational in the correct position, ready to keep flies away from food.
Flies have the nastiest habits of any creature. They will happily carry
thousands of germs and deposit them on our food. The best brand in the UK and
around the globe is the Insect-o-Cutor. Just like vacuum cleaners can often be
called “Hoovers”, most fly killer machines are known generically as
Insect-o-Cutors, even though this is, in fact, a brand name, and the most
respected brand name in its field. The important thing in my opinion is that
restaurants install a real Insect-o-Cutor, and not just any brand.
Large restaurants will have a range of fly killer machines. Smaller
