母親節前兩天的週五,帶腰椎疼痛的老母親出門看病。

因為中國城修路,為了圖方便,我們提前出發,到王朝樓下老牌的「永華酒家」用午餐。

一進門,女侍者就指一張手寫的牌子~no lunch today!
問:「為何不賣午餐?」 當下還以為有私人宴會包場呢!

侍者答曰:「過母親節。」

問:「母親節不是週日嗎?」

答:「星期五、六、日都算。」

指著寥寥數桌正在進食的顧客,問道:「那他們都在吃什麼?」

答曰:「吃晚餐。」
伸手看看腕錶,中午12點一刻,妙哉!

呵呵!藉機強迫客人中午點晚餐菜譜,管你是不是老顧客,太精明短視啦!

若是人多也還無所謂,但是兩位加起來150多歲的老太太,實在吃不下晚餐的份量啦~

臉書上網友回應:「總之,就是要從客人身上榨多些銀兩啦!」

「永華真笨啊!不趁好節好日作好生意⋯!」

老外也說:"They chose not to serve their discounted lunch menu during a period of high volume to maximize revenue. Not the most customer friendly decision, but service isn't usually a high priority at Chinatown restaurants."

如此對待上門老顧客,令人寒心!其實如今在中國城,比他好的餐館多得是。坐鎮收銀台後方的老闆,一副撲克臉,之前因為地點就在公司樓下,二十多年來也都見怪不怪了!

女兒在Kingwood接她老爸的"湘園~Hunan Garden", 每逢母親節及情人節都推出應景的特別套餐與自己設計的藝術菜單,並奉送母親及女士們長莖玫瑰,這才是雙贏的藍海經營之道啊!

Eric SandlerThey chose not to serve their discounted lunch menu during a period of high volume to maximize revenue. Not the most customer friendly decision, but service isn't usually a high priority at Chinatown restaurants.

Reed JenniferYou are right, since my real estate office was upstairs, I'm so used to the owner's poker face behind the cashier counter for more than 20 yrs. I don't mind too order from dinner menu if with big party, but we only can eat small portion of food.

Belfry Bats Seems like a rather excessive milking of mothers to me. Thankfully there are Many other options in town

Rodolfo Hernandez Am i missing something.. You said you were with your mother..i would have been extremely disappointed too!

Reed Jennifer Yes, I was with my mom, by adding our ages together, is over 150 yrs, we can't even finish lunch portion, don't mention bigger dinner plate.

Joanne Witt This is sad.

K.C. Taffinder No reason for this at all.

Bob Kochman That's called "Jumping the Shark" - their first step towards going out of business

Jay Francis On one hand, I can understand their decision. Lunch prices are usually loss leaders with the hopes that there is a small profit that will help pay the monthly utilities, etc. and hopefully bring people back for dinner. On a day like Mother's Day, they were probably hoping that large family parties would come and that they could do family style from the regular menu.

Bob Kochman Agreed. But Mother's Day is Sunday, not Friday and Saturday
