The Changing Way of Eating A La Carte

As you know, an application called “all inclusive” in hotel concepts has been on its head in recent years in our country. But now hotel guests are getting bored of these concepts. Because now, so to speak, we want to eat less and eat more. We don’t want to eat all the dishes on the same plate, the taste of which is mixed with each other. We want to eat dishes with more taste and more visuals.

Of course, eating now has become a form of socialization rather than being fed. The reason for this is the time-related problems of those living in metropolises. As the information age connects us more to our homes and workplaces, our only socialization area is almost eating.

In fact, in many European countries, eating was seen as a ritual for years. For example, for the French, dinner is seen as a ceremony to be held with family and friends. They eat their food and drink their wine while they talk about daily topics with plenty of conversation. This ceremony continues for 2 or 3 hours, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings.

In our country, on the other hand, there was not much talk about our traditions at dinner, the conversations were reserved for tea or coffee to be drunk after dinner. Nowadays, we pay attention to the decoration of the places, the service of the food and the materials used.

Maybe, as we mentioned at the beginning of our article, we prefer à la carte restaurants to eat less and eat more.

When we say a la carte, we immediately think of hotel restaurants, but in fact, it is a meal that is ordered from the menu and the price is calculated separately. There is no menu order and you have the freedom to eat your food in any order you want.

As interest in gastronomy in Turkey and in the world increased, interest in à la carte restaurants started to increase. Of course, restaurant owners had to improve themselves in this regard due to the increasing competition. The à la carte restaurants of the hotels are leaving their old standard à la carte menus and now appearing before us with much nicer places and food menus…
