Other than the usual “Mana mau makan?” (What to eat); “What’s for lunch today?” is a question you would hear every day at the office between us colleagues. One would go out to find out what’s on the menu and report back promptly. So some may or may not know this, Sutera Harbour has cafeterias to feed us hungry people. There’s one at the Pacific, and another at the Magellan, both cafeterias would serve the same food.
Since it's almost Christmas, they’ve put up decorations just to make people get into the festive mood. They decorated the door with garlands, and even put up a Christmas tree with cute ornaments!
Our cafeterias are open to cater to varied shifts we have in the hotel, so there’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, and supper! Of course in every other cafeteria there are rules and regulations. Here it’s just the basic norms, such as no outside food allowed, no takeaways, be in uniform, and the ultimate NO BRINGING OUT ANY UTENSILS. This is a big no no.
So today the menu is, TADAA.
The first thing we do is write our names, which department we’re from, our ID number, and our signatures; this is for the kitchen’s reference so they’ll know the number of people they need to cook for.
The cafeteria really makes sure they have all the bases covered with appetizers, the main spread, and desserts!
Apart from the normal white rice, an occasional chicken rice, or fried rice or even ‘nasi lemak’ is served. The staple is accompanied with 3 dishes comprising 1 meat/chicken menu, 1 seafood platter and 1 vegetable dish. Soup of the day is as delectable as the main spread.
Fresh fruits, salads with choice of dressings, sambals and occasional mouth-watering ABC and cendol are also in the menu, with options for drinks both cold and hot.
One of my favourites in the cafeteria is the feedback form. Yes! The feedback form! It shows that they really do care about what people think of their food. I think it’s very important to always be open to people’s comments, whether they are good or bad because they make one become better.
I’d like to thank the people behind the kitchen, preparing the food for us every day. Kudos to each and every one of them for making such wonderful meal every time.
So what do you think of our cafeteria? Share with us your cafeteria, whether it’s your own work place or school. We want to hear about it as well.
