Essentially I'm going to post about something that's been grinding my gears, and see if I'm the only one out there feeling the same way. Looking at my initial list, it seems to be very restaurant related
And with that, here we go
Fui Flips it: Stonegrill
You all might be familiar with this place, but for those who aren't, here's a description of what Stonegrill does from their website
Essentially you order a steak, it comes out of this stone plate, which is still cooking the meat as it rests. You then cut it all up and eat it to your liking. This is where Fui Flips It. The chef isn't even cooking the steak anymore, you, the patron are. So you're probably thinking "Ok, so the chef isn't cooking the steak, its got to be cheaper than a regular steak right?" Wrong. Looking at the Ascot Hotel menu, the cheapest steak is still $33, with an average price of $30 - $40.Stonegrill Ascot Hotel wrote:Stonegrill dining enables patrons to enjoy a meal freshly grilled to personal taste, whether it be rare, medium or well done. When a Stonegrill meal is presented at the table, diners simply turn over their Stonegrill selection, then cut and side-lay a portion or two, allowing these to sear and cook to their liking. Their meal remains hot and enjoyable, as the natural volcanic stone retains a prime cooking temperature for 30 minutes, allowing diners to eat at leisure, with every bite as hot and delicious as the first.
In other words, not only are you paying for the experience of cooking your own steak, the price is still comparable to your typical steak place.
Tell me I'm not wrong, and this whole idea is a rip?
