Fine Dining Cafeteria Style

I originally checked out Vapiano Restaurant because my brother told me about it.  My first thought when I walked in the door and they handed me a card (what they call a chip card) was "college".  You use the card to order all of your food, drinks, dessert, etc.  That's exactly whatI did in my college cafeteria years, swipe everything I wanted.  But, I was surprised at my overall experience.  The food was amazing and I absolutely loved watching my food be cooked right in front of me.  Awesome!  I've been there 4 times within the last 4 months, so I guess you can say I'm a fan.  I put together 2 list that I hope are helpful when you have your first Vapiano experience.  







Things to Do:

1.  Find a table before ordering - the last thing you want to do is walk around with your food and no table to sit at.

2.  Make your menu selection before you're in front of the chef/cook - you don't want to be the one that holds up the line behind you.

3.  Ask the chef to add your favorites to the dish - a little garlic, red pepper or fresh pepper won't hurt.

4.  Try different pasta - the pasta is made fresh and they have a great variety.  You won't be disappointed.











Don't:

1.  Don't leave your table unattended - it's important to clam your territory, especially on a Friday or Saturday night.  This restaurant gets crowded at night, so your group better leave a scarf, book or something to claim your table before everyone gets up to place their orders.

2.  Don't take all of your friend's cards to the bar to order drinks - by the time you get to the bar you never remember which card belongs to each friend.  The cards are identical.

3.  Don't leave your food behind if you're full - they have the cutest to-go-dishes and they are perfect to re-use.  Just ask the wait staff walking around for a to-go-box/dish.



The only reason they don't get a perfect score from me is because I hate waiting in line and on Friday and Saturday nights you will wait just a bit.  Other than that it's the perfect spot for girls night out or a date.  Have fun and enjoy the food.  It's Pasta Time at Vapiano's!
