“Did you get spaghetti out of all of these options?” One wrote, but another laughed. “They’re in Japan, but they’re eating spaghetti.”

Professional tennis star Daria Gavrilova, who was unable to compete in the Tokyo Olympics due to injury, responded to her comment on the spaghetti as follows:

“I can’t believe I didn’t have the sushi… I like to eat sushi with raw salmon two hours before the game,” she added.

However, many defend his food choices, suggesting that athletes have a “strict diet” and are inclined to “load up on carbohydrates” before competing.

“I’m not saying Japanese food makes you sick, but athletes who have a highly regulated performance diet tend to stick to safe food,” one woman suggested.

Many have said that eating spaghetti does not show anything “wrong”.

“I saw Italians eating Japanese food and Japanese people eating pizza. One wrote, but another said, “Competition because countries come from all over the world. You might want to eat something that you are used to before. “

Saville shared his video of walking through the Olympic Village canteen with a chef who gives athletes a real Japanese taste.

One of his teammates' meals included pasta and dumplings

According to the Food & Wine report, authentic Japanese dishes such as ramen, udon, wagyu, vegetable tempura, and seafood are available to athletes in the cafeteria, but raw sashimi is not.

According to Olympic safety rules, sushi rolls can only contain fully cooked ingredients, canned tuna, or vegetarian options such as pickled cucumbers and plums.

Saville’s video was shared through his fiancée Gavrilova’s TikTok account. A Russian-born tennis star currently living in Melbourne shares a “behind-the-scenes” video of the Olympic Games on behalf of Saville.

Earlier this year, Gavrilova underwent major surgery after suffering a chronic leg injury. This has led her to go from world number 20 to 315th in the current rankings.

Rosewood Hotels is a global chain with 36 locations on four continents. However, this resort in Mexico has been rated as the best of all. Rosewood San Miguel de Allende is a five star luxury hotel with spectacular views over the city skyline. The sparkling pool is lined with cabanas and palm trees, an idyllic tropical paradise. Considered one of the more expensive accommodation choices in town, one way to enjoy the estate is to dine at one of its seven distinct culinary sites. I had the chance to experience a memorable outdoor brunch at his signature restaurant, 1826.

This buffetThe stylish restaurant is a wonderful place to celebrate Mexico’s rich history. The menu offers traditional and innovative Mexican cuisine made with local ingredients. Rosewood San Miguel de Allende kisses the from farm to table philosophy by partnering with nearby farms and suppliers who work with the culinary team to provide various fresh organic products. There are several stations to visit to appeal to all palates. The restaurant is scattered with nicely decorated food stalls. One option that caught my eye was a woman patting some handmade blue corn tortillas. Customers choose their meat-based or vegetarian toppings and meals are prepared right in front of your eyes. A huge honeycomb block is displayed above eye level, allowing gravity to flow the sticky golden honey into a bin placed below to collect it. It’s as natural as it gets. the goat cheese is delivered fresh every day. It is soft, but quite firm, with a mild taste and goes very well with wine.

Each dish requires interaction with the staff. This allows for personal customization as the meals are served by the chefs based on the customer’s instructions. Customer service sets the 1826 apart from any other buffet. Get a taste of Mexico through Rosewood food and hospitality. I am very glad I did.

How ChowNow stands out on the mobile catering buffet https://dininginnewengland.com/how-chownow-stands-out-on-the-mobile-catering-buffet/ Wed, 01 Apr 2015 07:00:00 +0000 https://dininginnewengland.com/how-chownow-stands-out-on-the-mobile-catering-buffet/ While there are many positive things to be said for the mobile on-demand economy, one that cannot be mentioned enough times is that hunger is not an option for anyone with a working mobile phone.

While there are many positive things to be said for the mobile on-demand economy, one that cannot be mentioned enough times is that hunger is not an option for anyone with a working mobile phone. There are apps that offer takeout, apps that deliver groceries, apps that make restaurant reservations, apps that pay for dining – all of which is good news for consumers, who have a buffet ( yes, we wanted that pun) of options to choose from when hunger strikes.

But for the creators of all these apps looking to help the hungry consumer in an increasingly crowded space, popularity presents an unexpected problem: standing out and being noticed by consumers who are inundated with options.

That’s why ChowNow – an online ordering platform for restaurants – decided the best way to reach consumers was to power the restaurants that already serve them.

“Everyone is trying to fit in between the consumer and the restaurant,” says Chris Webb, CEO of ChowNow. “We work behind the scenes and behind the restaurant and this allows [the restaurant] to communicate directly with their client. We have received many comments that involve our customers [their restaurant partners] really, really that.

ChowNow enables online ordering and offers a marketing platform that allows restaurants to easily take orders from their website, Facebook page, and through branded iOS and Android apps.

Webb explained to MPD CEO Karen Webster that the third-party ordering platform model that other players in the space have adopted represents something of a double-edged sword for these merchants. While these engines can work as an acquisition tool to bring consumers into a restaurant, they run the risk of being disintermediated by customers.

“The #1 feedback I’ve received [from restaurants] was that they hated these platforms that would allow restaurants to connect quickly – but over time they lost the connection with the consumer. They even found themselves paying a commission on every transaction. And that was any customer, even people who order regularly once a week. »

Webb told Webster that as the idea for ChowNow came to fruition, it became clear that the needs of the take-out restaurant customer were somewhat different from the general needs of the typical restaurant operator. While a third-party platform can offer significant business value as a discovery platform, helping consumers find a take-out restaurant is simply less important since the majority of “take-out” restaurant business is in does recurring activities.

“We’re not a discovery platform,” Webb told Webster. “The true value of a marketplace in any industry – eBay, Uber, etc. – discovery is the #1 value they deliver. The reason [marketplaces] don’t work well in the take-out business is that discovery has already happened about 80% of the time. The real value lies in the interaction with the customer.

And that’s a value that investors see too. Last week, the Venice, Calif.-based startup announced that it had provided an additional $10 million in venture funding in a round led by Upfront Ventures (with additional participation from Steadfast Venture). Capital, Daher Capital and Karlin Ventures). Going forward, Webb told Webster that money will go both to ramping up their marketing efforts — from their current team of five — and to improving the product.

“We’ve seen too many companies in our space trying to grow too quickly too soon and not putting their product in the sweet spot. We wanted to put our platform in a great place where we were getting great feedback from our restaurants [and] where we weren’t losing so many suppliers. »

The company also made some strategic new hires: Nick Kellermeyer, a former GrubHub executive, and Arpan Jhaveri, a former senior Yodle executive, join the team as VP of Sales and VP of Product. and marketing, respectively. Webb told Webster that now seems like a good time to scale up as restaurants really improve their tech businesses.

“Restaurants as an industry have always been slow to adopt technology,” Webb noted. “I think that’s changing today because the space is getting more and more competitive and everyone is looking for an edge. They’re also looking out there and still seeing people on their phones, so they can see this opportunity. I think they take decisions a little slower because they are overwhelmed with options when they want to go faster.

Webb says it helps restaurants move faster, but it also helps them move smarter. For example, he noted that they have fully integrated Apple Pay (since late January) and Google Wallet (most recently), and these payment methods are now available to all of their merchant partners.

“Each of our orders placed is paid for online. Historically, it’s always been credit cards, but we were the first online ordering company in our space to launch Apple Pay. This is the bridge we took.

And Webb notes that it’s been a successful bridge so far – as Apple Pay has proven to be hugely popular with iPhone-carrying consumers of their restaurant patrons.

“The numbers we’re seeing around Apple Pay are very, very impressive. Over the last 60 days since our platform update, we’re seeing, on average, that iPhone users are making 15-20% of their payments with Apple Pay. Some of our customers’ apps see 30% using Apple Pay.”

And that, Webb notes, is generalized. ChowNow currently partners with thousands of restaurants in 45 states, and that 20% number is pretty consistent. It’s also a number Webb expects to increase.

“One of the biggest drawdowns when you look at the sales funnel when you look at e-commerce is that final account creation payment process. Apple Pay has done a really good job of making this as easy as possible for the consumer,” Webb noted. “One of the big reasons we love it is that it lets customers create an account using their thumb.”

Webb also noted that early information indicates that using Apple Pay (as opposed to standard account creation methods) makes the account creation process for new users 35% faster.

The food industry is not surprisingly full of mobile players. As Webster noted in his conversation with Webb, food establishments are a great place to build eating habits on because everyone needs to eat. ChowNow has the interesting idea of ​​working with the company that actually makes the food to reach customers.

Although they are still expanding, so far it seems like an idea that restaurateurs and investors can sink their teeth into.
