When hunger strikes, it’s not always so clear what the craving is for. Sometimes it all sounds good and we want to try everything all at once until we are sated. Well, good news! There are places where you can do just that; places with a variety of culinary proposals all under one roof. Yes, we are talking about food halls!
How do you know you’ve entered one?
At first glance, it may seem like a large restaurant with a strange layout. Once you have identified the perimeter, you will notice that there are several sales points, which may or may not have the same design. There are common areas that share a similar aesthetic but the tables will be filled with a diversity of dishes. You might see enchiladas side by side with sushi. Have you experienced this? Then welcome to the food hall!
Recommendations when you arrive
These halls are great for trying new things. They offer a wide variety of fare and have vast menus – everything from local cuisine to land and sea, cocktails, and desserts. Ask about the portion sizes (they are generally small) to know whether to order a couple of dishes to try on your own or to share among the table. Finally, inquire about the payment methods, since, although these places share many services, sometimes the bill is done on a locale-by-locale basis (which can make settling the check a little messy).
As you can see, these are ideal places to exercise and enjoy gastronomic democracy, and we cannot help but wonder, will these places eradicate the family discussion for choosing a restaurant according to personal tastes? Can they help please all the picky guests at our gatherings?
