One of which is the restaurant industry. They face new challenges every day and thus, have changing trends every single year.
Most restaurant fanatics tend to look for something new in restaurants, maybe not annually, but practically every single day. Therefore, restaurants should stick to the trends of this year for them to not just have more customers, but to have an increase in sales as well. Best Buy, a food service equipment Philippines provider, presents the trends in restaurant menus this 2016.
When referring to the core-of-the-plate merchandises, that usually mean proteins; however, that aspect may be evolving by the minute. Fresh produce as the main attraction of the plate is being preferred by more restaurants and chefs, who are serving up vegan-centric meals that are often vegetarian.
Restaurant Grocery Stores
Nowadays, you can start seeing restaurants adapting to the concept of a fresh food retail operations. If you, the consumer, want to eat where you shop for groceries, it's reasonable to presume that you may also want to grocery shop where you eat, right? As a matter of fact, half of consumers say that they would be interested in purchasing fresh, uncooked food items from restaurants.
Simplicity is the Key
Simplicity, going back to square one of cooking and classic cuisines, is one of the biggest statements to live by this 2016 according to many professional chefs. While molecular gastronomy is turning more and more popular, there is more counter-movement stirring up that concentrates more on stripping down recipes to lesser ingredients to let them stand out with all of their glory.
Negative on GMOs
In most cases, especially with starter courses, you may have made up your minds that you want to avoid genetically modified organisms (GMOs) even before the scientists came up with this “moniker”. Many restaurants will strongly agree that GMOs should not be served on their menus and you, the consumer, should dine on fresh and organic ingredients.
No More Gluten-Free Kale Salads?
All good things must come to an end, and the gluten-free cuisine industry, with the kale salads, may have to come to an end. Both of these former hot trends have been losing steam over the past couple of years. However, don't think that they'll both be phased out. It's more likely that they'll evolve into perennial favorites over time. How? Kale salads are being adapted to salads where other greens are conventionally used, like Caesars and Cobbs, and gluten free items are becoming menu trends in a lot of food service locations.
These trends are not just only for the people in the Philippines, but for all restaurants around the globe. They only share one industry and should have the same trends all together.
