Menus and Food Quality - In Practice

More worrying menu indicators, this time based on an actual Chinese takeaway menu that arrived through my door:

But it would be unfair to mock this menu without trying it. So I have just finished eating Fried Duck with Ginger and Spring Onion (#69), and Egg Fried Rice (#143). And the verdict: 7/10. OK, but not superb - the rice was a bit dry, and the sauce a bit greasy. They also inadvertently added on one more indicator during the ordering process: I was told it would take an unnervingly precise 12 minutes before it was ready.

So that’s one data point for this scientifically accurate menu/food quality study.
