The Nomad Manager’s Veg Resto / Food Find Rating Scale

Okay, since it looks like I’ll be looking for more veg-friendly restos or food finds (probably for the rest of my life, since it’s looking to be a cause I will fully support), I figure I should have an appropriate rating scale for all my discoveries moving forward.

So here’s the criteria I’ve come up with, arranged in the order I deem them important:

    1. Taste
    2. Price
    3. Ambiance
    4. Presentation
    5. Creativity (resourcefulness in using veggies / recreating otherwise non-veg dishes)
    6. Waiting Time
    7.  Veg-ness
    8. Freelancer-friendly (depending on wi-fi and outlet cost / availability)
    9. Value for money (overall rating)

And here’s the 4-point rating scale I’ve come up with, with 1 icon (right now, ) being the lowest, most negative rating, and 4 being the highest, most positive rating. Please have as fun a time reading as I did writing:

1) Taste
·        Better than hunger.
·        Doesn’t taste “vegetarian” (read: bland and cardboard-like)
·        Seconds, please!
·        I CAN EAT THIS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!

2) Price
·        IS THIS FUCKING GOLD-LEAFED THEN DEEP-FRIED IN TRUFFLE OIL??
·        It hurts this cheapskate.
·        It’s reasonable.
·        Food here, beri beri chip!

3) Ambiance
·        Just get your food and leave.
·        I can hang out here for a bit.
·        Loved the look; I’ll definitely be getting some design ideas here.
·        CAN I LIVE HERE, PLEASE?

4) Presentation
·        My poop looks better than this.
·        Edible-looking.
·        Pretty!
·        Low EQ and food blogger ambitions aside, I HAVE TO TAKE A PHOTO.

5) Creativity (resourcefulness in using veggies / recreating otherwise non-veg dishes)
·        Boring.
·        Pretty clever.
·        I wish I’d thought of that!
·        THIS WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.

6) Waiting time
·        I couldn’t wait to find out. Really, I couldn’t.
·        Sana nag-padeliver nalang tayo. (30 minutes or more)
·        Enough time for some reading / chitchat (15-30 minutes)
·        Faster than speeding bullet! (0-15 minutes)

7) Veg-ness
·        Oh, that was the ONLY vegetable dish? (Has isolated vegetarian fare)
·        Omnivore family/barkada-friendly (Has a fair array of vegetarian options)
·        Yay! Plants! (Fully/mostly vegetarian)
·        VEGAN POWERS!! (Fully/mostly vegan)

8) Freelancer-friendly (depending on wi-fi and outlet cost / availability)
·        This is NOT a place to work.
·        I’d like to work here, but they make it REALLY hard for you.
·        I could work here for a bit.
·        I could work here all day!

9) Value for money  (overall rating)
·        Don’t waste your money here.
·        It’s worth a try.
·        I’d definitely come back.
·        IT IS FACE-MELTINGLY EPIC!

Looking forward to reviewing more restos and rating some more food finds! 🙂

Veg out,
Jen
