13.04.2011 | 視像用途

大家偶然都會去快餐店解決兩餐架啦, 相信食快餐都唔應該有咩expectation嘅, 求其食得飽就得啦.. 不過有時真係爭唔落喎, 啲員工求其到呢, 可以(秉持「供視像用途」呢個原則)整個漢堡包整到完全走晒樣, 同廣告上嗰隻漢堡包完全match唔到囉..

唔係話我挑剔, 之不過見到一劈嘢咁, 胃口點都欠佳啦係嘛?? 不過既然係快餐店就算喇, 畀著係高檔少少嘅食肆, 我唔唱通街都肯定將佢列入黑名單囉..
i believe everyone occasionally goes for fast food to settle a meal or two, and i guess we should not have much expectation on fast food other than to get our stomach filled up.. but many times the workers are so casual (thanks to the term for illustration purpose only as a strong excuse) that the burgers they prepared can be so out of form till we hardly find similarity to match with those featured on the advertisement..

i'm not trying to be fussy but when you see one "smash" of burger in front of you, will that turn appetising to you at all?? well, no complaints since this is fast food, but given slightly established eateries, if not criticising them everywhere i could then i will for sure put them in my blacklist..

  3. they are indeed very deceiving when you compare the posters and advertisement to the real servings

  4. I often get burgers like that. The lettuce scattered everywhere.

    I once witnessed an Arab guy "demanding" a dish to look exactly like the ones featured in the menu. The look the staff had was priceless.

  5. The reson why they don't get enough time to make the burgers more appealing as what they are supposed to look is that they are following a what so-called Average time limit... not complying with that rules will give them bad marks hehehe...(just basing it on my experience)

  6. yes! i somehow will craving for some fast food too. :/ which is not healthy. :p

    ReplyDelete
  7. sigh. yea la! the size of the burger also reduced one if actual one! >:(

    ReplyDelete
  8. then the fillets also thinner than on the poster one! grrrr!!

  9. Hahah wysiwyg? Noooooooooo its WYSINWYG ~ what you see is not what you get!

    ReplyDelete
  10. That's why it is called fast food - fast prepared & fast eaten. So, how to expect quality when speed is tripled?

  11. Hi SK!

    Biasa lah tu kan.. always get smashed up burgers until i dont bother to eat them anymore... unless i'm really desperate and ran out of things to eat! :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Usually "Pictures for reference only" is always indicated on the menu/ad hahahha~~~

    ReplyDelete
  13. What you see is what you won't get! put this disclaimer in the ads...ha ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  14. McD does that all the time. The patties often "serong" to one side.

  15. SK, I so agree with you. It never used to be like that. Maybe the public need to raise hell with them so that they maintain the standard.

    I ordered a filet a few months ago and was truly disappointed that the filet has shrunk and there was only half a slice of cheese when it used to be a full piece! For the price increase, I'd say they are shortchanging the customer.

    Lina, good for that Arab guy!

    ReplyDelete
  16. you never get what you see. :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. that is why they put it as for illustration purpose only. Makan aje lo...or else go for Ramle burger.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Of course bro. If not who wanna go buy those burgers? :p

    ReplyDelete
  19. Then I don't mind at all if it doesn't look good. most importantly it must taste good. :p

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is like women who make up...what you see....is not what you get after the make up is removed. :p

    ReplyDelete
  21. wakakaka... This is marketing plan...

    so, you are one of the victim.

  22. sayang... here is not american...
    else you can sue the company and get a lot money.

    ReplyDelete
  23. haha..that normally happens..

    ReplyDelete
  24. 哈哈
    我在台灣的麥噹噹吃過一份漢堡
    一拿起來,整個手都是cheese
    因為它的cheese放在漢堡的底部
    氣死我!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yup. Even at other restaurants...and not just in the ads and the menu or photo displays at the place.

    You see in blogs all those alluring photos taken using those hi-tech equipment...and when you actually go there, you find that it does not look that nice...and at times, it does taste as nice as some of them claim either. But of course, the taste is very subjective - what I like, others may not...and vice versa.

  26. hahha 每当我看着麦当劳的海报时,我就会很气。所谓 "the above picture is for illustration purposes only" 真的是这样而已。那个鱼汉堡在海报是金黄色的,真真正正吃的时候就像路边的炸黑色的咸煎饼哈哈哈

    ReplyDelete
  27. this is call advertisement.....hahahaha....
    jz to attract you and go any eat....

    ReplyDelete
  28. i agree with u completely.. it is not what we get!

    ReplyDelete
  29. 呵呵呵...广告的照片一直以来都是呈现反差的啊...看多了就会习惯吧!

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOL!! I never come across a burger that looked exactly and as nice as the ones advertised.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Of course, the ones in the ads were meticulously prepared and after the photoshoots were done, the pictures were again paintbrushed to create a better and more attractive effect.

    ReplyDelete
  32. So I never complained cos I knew the real thing just wont match with the ones in the ads. Haha!! But I complain when the size gets smaller than usual! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Anyway, I am not fond of burgers so no problem there Haha!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. But I am very angry with McD recently for reducing the amount of the McFlurry from 1 full cup to less than half a cup with no reduction of price!! What a big con!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I also noticed that this problem that you complained about also happens to restaurants. They have nice looking pictures on their menus, but the real thing looks quite different with less ingredients!

    ReplyDelete
  36. haha, of course we cannot expect too much from the fast food.. just set your expectation low and you'd be ok.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. i think those photos in the menu are marketing gimmicks only, in general, i really don't think the food will look as nicely presented..

    ReplyDelete
  38. but i guess in higher class restaurant, they should be very particular on food presentation.. maybe don't even have any photos on the menu but only words, so you'd have no expectation and when the food is served, you are impressed.. true?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yeah... can't deny that look(in the advert) can be pretty deceiving!^-^

    ReplyDelete
  40. 这个是预了的,
    没有对那些快餐像广告那么有要求,
    只要差不远就好了。
    除非是很贵的,那么就会很不满意。

  41. @ edward:
    我就梗係冇信啦, 之不過求其到同幅廣告相完全唔一樣就確實幾離譜下囉..

    @ bluedreamer27:
    yeah, i think you've made a point there, the fast food service crew will have certain KPI, and time is of course the main factor to measure that.. well, i'm not particular about the fast food chain but on more established restaurants.. so you've worked in a kitchen before and i guess you sure have seen a lot of the darker side.. :p

  42. @ lina:
    yeah, those burgers are really classic, and that burger patty can be just dropped out from the buns, haha!! hmmm, the Arab guy asking to have the same thing, wow, i would really like to see that~~

    @ Caroline Ng May Ling:
    oh yeah, exactly!! did you noticed that the cheese is only half a piece in the filet-o-fish nowadays?? and certainly the burger patty is also thinner now, haiz..

    ReplyDelete
  43. @ Bananazஇ:
    yeah, that is why i put the not-equal sign between them, did you notice that?? :)

    @ Yvonne:
    well i think the quality is standard but not the presentation haha.. anyway, i have no expectation on fast food lah, they have to be prepared within seconds mah..

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ Merryn:
    haha, definitely won't be expecting too much from fast food burgers lah, cos they need to be delivered to you within a minute mah.. anyway, when it comes to fast food, just eat and no complaints lah..

    @ Feeling:
    that is why the "for illustration purpose only" is used to protect against their real food so we cannot complain..

    ReplyDelete
  45. @ Gratitude:
    hahaha, not only the patties but the lettuce is always scattered everywhere outside of the buns..

    @ HappySurfer:
    oh yeah, you noticed that also?? not only the filet has shrunk and also has gone thinner, the cheese is only half a piece!! well, but we have commonly accepted that and i guess Malaysians are still way behind of understanding consumer rights..

    ReplyDelete
  46. @ Medie007:
    of course have to makan as food has been paid for.. haha!!

    @ 追梦者:
    of course not in fast food chain.. i've once been to a korean restaurant, the food is actually the same as what they have on the menu.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. @ Small Kucing:
    haha, actually i think Ramlee burger are more delicious, and they are more generous to give you all the things you should have in a burger.. :p

    @ Tekkaus:
    yeah, it's actually the presentation only, but the food actually tasted ok and i don't mind going for them especiall McD lunch is so affordable.. hahaha, you relate this to women who makeup?? OMG, you better not let them see this, this is discrimination and harrassment~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  48. @ CH Voon:
    actually i think we have rights to do that, just that this is not commonly practised.. and even if we complain, nobody will listen also.. sigh!!

    @ wenn:
    haha, i would say not only normally, but always!! :p

  49. @ 十六:
    嘩, 那你那個漢堡真的是差勁!! 我吃了那麼多年漢堡都沒有試過這樣的事情發生囉.. 你有要求賠償沒有??

    @ suituapui:
    yeah, of course the photos are always being touched up and can be very deceiving.. nobody will ever advertise a badly presented dish of food right?? hmmm, those blogs i sometimes suspect are being paid to give unfrank comments, but likewise you said, taste is very subjective so there is also no right and wrong though..

    ReplyDelete
  50. @ Kian Fai:
    說以說, 有了那一句"the above picture is for illustration purposes only"他們就是什麼都可以做了, 因為那是保障他們的嘛, 根本就對東西原來面貌沒有一種控制呀.. 不過算了, 快餐罷了, 吃得下肚子可以飽就好了.. :)

    @ thomas:
    yeah, not only advertisement but marketing and packaging.. there's just too much to learn.. anyway, i'm not attracted but just go there for convenience..

    ReplyDelete
  51. @ reanaclaire:
    yeah, so is there any channel that we can lodge complaints about this??

    @ bluecloud:
    其實我早已習慣了喇, 之不過覺得有時真的做到很過份的隨便囉, 所以也會覺得很氣的有時候..

    ReplyDelete
  52. @ foongpc:
    oh yeah, the burgers size are getting smaller, the patties are thinner and even the cheese in a filet-o-fish is only half a piece, that is what we are having now.. yeah, the McFlurry is so small now but selling at a price more expensive, i've since then new had that already, i only have the sundae cone which is yet at RM1 and still taste so yummy, haha.. definitely all restaurants have the menu which look a lot nicer than the food they prepare, guess we have to get used to this due to the "for illustration purpose" term?? well, this is malaysia and i wonder if our complaints will be entertained?? well, presentation only right, as long as the food taste ok then i'm fine with it..

    @ victor:
    well, i actually have no expectation but then still there is a bottomline right?? sometimes those burgers are really so casually prepared, can you stand your burger once unwrapped the lettuce will drop out all over your body?? anyway, for fast food chain that's it, but if really more established restaurants i really don't expect that to happen..

    ReplyDelete
  53. @ Alice Law:
    well, i would say that's not deceiving but truly a con, hahahaha!! anyway, we all already known and have accepted that food in real will never look the same as what is featured right?? :D

    @ Ashley:
    對囉, 根本就是預料中事喇, 所以也沒有多大的期望.. 不過有時候也會覺得有點過份啦, 但是有說回頭, 也是presentation罷了, 味道如果是好的也就算了吧.. :)

  54. this happen on kay haf cee..... haha
    Their picture and real product does not match!!!!

  55. @ mNhL:
    i think it happens to almost all the restaurants here lah.. all have very deceiving menu photos and the real food ended up so disappointing..
