There are many reasons why diners at some Chinese cafes are complaining about the quality of the food, but a recent survey of customers at the Hunan Ricks Café Racer in the city of Kunming, which opened its doors in June, may have helped make the point.
The cafe has been a hit since opening, and customers are saying that the food tastes better than most Chinese restaurants, and even better than many American restaurants.
The Ricks is known for its chicken wings, and the fact that customers are complaining that the chicken wings are not as good as what is offered in the American chain’s restaurants is no surprise.
According to the website Eat Chinese, the menu is “a fusion of authentic Chinese cuisine and Westernized fare.”
The site further explained that “customers can expect to pay up to $5 more for a dish than at most American restaurants,” and that there are also “no MSG, salt, pepper, onions or other added preservatives.”
The menu also says the restaurant serves “delicious desserts and fresh ingredients,” which may be a clue to why dinners are complaining.
The website further explained: Customers can expect their money back on orders made with one of their favorite foods, but that will vary depending on the location.
For example, customers at The Rics might pay up $5, while diners in the restaurant in the Beijing suburbs might pay $15, while customers in the U.S. might pay only $7.
The restaurant’s food is also served in a “non-traditional” Chinese style, which may make it more appealing to some customers.
“Chinese food is an old-school food, and there are many things you can eat that are not in the norm in the West,” a Hunan resident who goes by the name of Zeng explained.
“This is not something that is going to change any time soon.”
