Difficult Diner

Certain public officials are celebrities in their own right. When they enter establishments, people who recognize them will surely glance or if brave enough, will ask for selfies. Other are accommodating, others can be snubs, and sometimes, their security detail can prevent citizens from approaching. Nonetheless, their presence would generate even a bit of excitement.

When Female Official (FO), who’s a favorite media subject these days, entered a restaurant, the staff and diners were excited, as it was a moment to get up, close, and personal with her. FO was her usual self, which did not really exude of what was next to come. The servers came over to make sure everything FO would need would be served.

The staff watched as FO went over the menu. However, things became uneasy when FO requested a dish that was not on the menu. Unless one is a close friend or associate of the owner or manager of the restaurant, ordering a dish that is not on the list seems odd. FO is neither, except that she can be considered a celebrity given her visibility in mainstream and social media.

The staff had no choice but to follow FO to avoid getting her ire and possible negative feedback. The power of social media can make or break any establishment and obviously, the restaurant wanted to please customers. Ordering the dish not on the restaurant’s menu, did not stop there. FO even gave instructions on how to prepare the dish she wanted and told the staff that she was a chef herself and so she knows what she wants. It's like, FO made her own recipe and she found a restaurant to cook that 'new' dish for her. Lucky for FO, the restaurant was kind enough to adhere to her whims.

  4. Hmmm.....more like disgusting diva. Why didn’t she just stayed home and cooked it herself or gave instructions to her household on how to cook it. Shameless.

  5. F.O., whoever you are, sana naisip mo na pasahod ka lang ng taong bayan. Yang pera mo kinaltas as tax sa sweldo ng mga servers mo sa resto.

    Please leave that entitlement at the door.

  8. Meron kasi mga restaurants talaga na may secret menu that you can customize. Maybe she was told about that particular dish. Hopefully malaki naman binigay nya tip.

  9. Mukhang sa mamahaling restaurant naman siguro nangyari ito. I wouldn't take it against the FO kasi pwede naman mag-request sa chef ng food kahit wala sa menu, special order tawag dun. 4-5 star restaurants/Chefs are trained and ready to do that. Di lang tayo accustomed mga pinoy siguro sa ganung gawi ng ibang customer.

    1. sa tingin mo kung ok lang pala yang special order sa restaurant ma bi ba yan dito? na bi dito means hindi ok sa kanila pero wala nga daw silang magawa diba kaya nilutuan pa din nila si fo

    2. A real chef will be very insulted if you tell them how to cook their food. I made a mistake of ordering a well known brand of sauce to go with my steak and the waiter snootily informed me that the chef has prepared three kinds of sauces to go with our steak. Chefs are proud of their dishes which they painstakingly prepared to impress diners. No one is allowed to alter their dishes. They get insulted.

    3. No chef was insulted I believe in this scenario dahil nga wala sa menu nila ang inoorder ni FO. And it turned out na nagawa naman ng chef ang order, so I guess di lang talaga sanay ang mga waiters sa ganung customer or it's maybe their first time to encounter.

  14. She should've told to have her own meal prepared by her own chef, rather than dine out and order for something's not even on the menu.
