i’ve been disappointed lately by a couple of restaurant experiences.
my wife and i heard about a place in Berlin run by a syrian lady who famously cooked for german chancellor Angela Merkel.
we saw several YouTube videos and heard excellent things about her restaurant.
so the next time we were in Berlin, we decided to check it out.
now, my family aren’t really into traditional site-seeing. we have a fun way to experience a city through its food. to get variety without overeating.
the trick is to pick up one or two items from each place. always a tiny portion, always “to go”, and always shared.
by diversifying the places AND the food selections, we minimise the risk of ordering the wrong thing at the wrong place.
the problem is the restaurant we heard about was not a “pick up and go” type of joint. and from the videos we saw, their mains were HUGE. we worried we’d not be able to eat anywhere else afterwards.
as a compromise, we ordered from their appetiser menu a small selection of items. i mean, we could always ask for more if the food was out of this world.
our first shock came when we saw how embarrassingly small the portions were. it seems the YouTube reviewers got a special treatment that regular customers don’t get.
but this wasn’t the real bummer…
their food wasn’t any good!
half-cooked potatoes, jarred ingredients, traditional foods missing their most important items, and a general lack of flavour.
aside from the high prices, there was nothing special about what they served.
either ole Angela has burned off her taste buds, or we’d been duped.
so much was her disbelief that my wife, rather than blame the restaurant, suggested WE were the ones who made a wrong selection!
this is SO familiar.
i’ve seen online marketing students do precisely this. first, they buy into the hype of an overpriced training product. then, when it fails to deliver on its big promises, they blame themselves.
don’t get me wrong…
if they’re not consuming the training after they buy it, they SHOULD blame themselves.
but there’s a disturbing trend creeping into all industries. sellers over-exaggerate prices without over-exaggerating quality.
i reckon, if you’re gonna charge a high price, you better earn it.
and if you’re going to buy from someone selling expensive products, they better deliver head and shoulders above the rest. otherwise, they don’t deserve your money.
this is why i raised the price of the Super Traffic Machine several months after its launch. it delivers, and there’s clearly NOTHING like it.
