When people try to choose a restaurant to dine in, they will consider various factors. First of all, they’ll want an eatery that serves up the cuisine they want to try that night. Then, they need to find a restaurant that has good reviews so that they know the food is going to be up to scratch. But these days, diners also want to know whether or not a restaurant is sustainable and environmentally friendly. The environment is a hot topic right now as many people are worried about climate change. As a result, they want to make sure that their lifestyle is as green as possible - and this also goes for the restaurants in which they eat.


So, are you interested in turning your menu and whole restaurant green? If so, you need these very useful tips and tricks.


Train Your Staff In Sustainability


When you do decide to go completely eco-friendly, it is important that your staff know why you are doing this and how they can improve their day to day methods and processes so that they can complete their work as greenly as possible. The best way to do this is to train your staff. Ideally, you should teach them the background of eco-friendly best practices so that they understand why they are important. If you buy any new equipment that is a lot friendlier to the environment, you will also need to teach them how to use these.


Use Other Green Businesses


You will no doubt have a long list of suppliers and companies whose services and products you require for your restaurant. It’s a good idea to research each and every one of these to make sure that they have the same eco-friendly and green values and practices that you want to see in your company. You might want to find a food waste management company who can help you dispose of your waste in an ethical manner, rather than simply dumping it at a landfill site. You should also look for ingredient suppliers who are locally based and use ethical farming and food production methods.

Recycle As Much As Possible


Not only can recycling help reduce your waste, but it can also make your business a whole lot greener. There are various ways you can recycle. You might want to use leftover ingredients to make compost. This is great if your chefs have their own vegetable and herb gardens. Plus, rather than throwing out old items of furniture, it’s worth considering how you could upcycle them or reclaim the materials to use for something else.


Take Your Advertising Online


Printing out leaflets and posters can be expensive and bad for the environment. For this reason, lots of restaurants have now taken all of their advertising online. Thanks to social media, you can now get your adverts out there and seen by thousands of people. And you won’t have to worry about all the trees that are used in the paper for printed advertising!

Are you ready to make your restaurant sustainable?

  1. This topic is very interesting and inspiring until I read it twice. I like this Green business concept as I fully support recycling and take the trouble to dispose all my garbage properly. I will follow this idea if I ever open a restauramt.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
