3 False Common Aussie Restaurant Stereotypes

Restaurants are basically an inseparable part of our lives.

Even with technology racing forward and providing so many avenues for recreation for the young and restless, there’s nothing that beats going out for a meal with your friends or family. Over the years there have been so many ideas and concepts that have grown around restaurants, some of which are completely baseless and untrue. Here are a few:


Restaurant
The Cruel Chef

Probably the aftermath of overdosing on “Hell’s Kitchen”, a lot of people tend to picture Gordon Ramsay firing away at a contestant when they hear the word, “chef.” People fail to realise that it’s just a show. The fact is that most chefs are extremely friendly and eager to please their customers, and will go out of their way to ensure they have a good time while they are at the restaurant.

“For some strange reason, a lot of people are apprehensive about being served by a young waiter.”

The Curse of Not Tipping

Some people tip generously, others leave a smile. Australian waiters are trained to take everything in their stride. They will never hold anything against if you if you don’t tip. Though, there’s no rule in Australia about tipping, most diners tend to leave a good tip when they are really happy with the service and the food. If you really had a nice time at a restaurant and you feel that your waiter helped create a great ambience for you, just thank him and smile on your way out. That would be a lot more appreciated than any tip.

The Cocky Young Waiter

For some strange reason, a lot of people are apprehensive about being served by a young waiter. In fact, the truth of the matter is that most young waiters in Australia are fun and are only happy to make sure you have a great time while you dine. Young waiters undergo extensive training so that customers get to enjoy the benefits of the training as well as a sparkling personality.
