Pate Maiwiriwiri
Lautoka
On Fiji Day, I took my family to a popular eatery in Nadi for big meal and all the good stuff that comes with it.
My nine-year-old wanted a kid’s meal with sweet and sour sauce. The total cost of our order came to just a little over $50.
As we sat down to eat, my wife noticed that the sweet and sour sauce packet had expired on September 1, 2012 and was replaced with a sticker indicating a new expiry date of October 19, 2012.
The sauce tasted old and flat with a sour flavour to it. Not at all fresh and enjoyable from the sweet and sour sauce I am used to at the popular eatery.
I requested to see the manager and when he came over, I demanded an explanation and I was even more disgusted when he gave his explanation. This had been approved by their headquarters, he said.
The manager then handed me over their complaint book and I made an entry radiating my utter disgust, combined with the fact that the prices of their menu items keeps going up and the food quality tends to deteriorate, and their food portions getting smaller and smaller every time we buy from them.
I kept the sweet and sour sauce packets as a souvenir.
