I am positive that pretty much every time I do a mystery shop at a bar, I’m spotted. After all, who asks for an itemised receipt at a place like that?
But anyway. We recently paid a visit to the Dominion on Dominion Road (formerly GPK, I think) and were really impressed.
Our meals were immaculately presented and although mine wasn’t mindblowing – chicken breast with pancetta, olives, and barely any pancetta, on rocket and fried potatoes – T’s eye fillet was a SYMPHONY. It came with mushrooms, glaze and mashed potatoes…and oh my lord, it was perfection. The ingredients were in just the right proportions, and tasted amazing together. Perfectly cooked too. I only wish there had been more, especially for the price ($59 for both dishes).
The ambience isn’t too shabby either – it’s spacious, airy and not too noisy, with both inside and outside seats. And Thursday night is “loyalty” night with $5 drinks – can’t go wrong!
Mmm. That eye fillet looks good. The yellow thing looks like a chip of some sort? Maybe deep fried plantain? Potato? o___o?
Maybe they didn’t know you were a mystery shopper. Maybe you were there for work and you needed an itemized bill to be reimbursed?
