It’s almost an automatic response from customers when they order pasta. What baffles me, is that they ask without even tasting the food.
The Chef takes time to create this dish, you should taste it as it was sent out. If you need that little extra, then say “may I have some cheese please”.
It’s the same with Waiters automatically offering pepper. I can see it on Steak or a salad but we should all be able to taste the food, then make that request. Or perhaps not feel slighted because the Waiter didn’t offer it.
What do you think?
