Growing up, my grandparents enjoyed preparing pork barbecue a few times every year at their home. Whenever they barbecued, they would invite several friends and other family members over. To serve with the pork meat, my grandmother always prepared several mouthwatering side dishes such as potato salad and baked beans. Because they slow cooked the meat for hours, they were always extremely tired when the fun festivities were complete. Nowadays, my family skips the hassle of cooking pork barbecue themselves. Instead, they enjoy this delicious entree at a favorite local restaurant. On this blog, you will discover the best side dishes to order with a pork barbecue meal at a restaurant. Enjoy!
Acai bowls have become all the rage over the past few years. Customers love the health benefits they get from the bowls' high fiber content and antioxidant content. They also love the delicious, fruity flavor, and smooth texture. Serving acai bowls is sure to make your customers happy and perhaps also earn you some new customers. However, there are a few tips you'll want to follow as you add acai bowls to your menu.
Buy pre-blended acai mix
Yes, you could make each acai bowl from scratch by blending up acai berries and other ingredients in a blender. But that is a lot of work to go through every time someone orders an acai bowl. It's also a lot of blenders to clean. It is a lot more efficient to buy a pre-blended acai mix. There are several brands that make this. It comes in a carton or a plastic container, which you keep in the freezer. The mixture retains a smoothie-like texture. You spoon some of it out into a bowl, add your other ingredients, and you're set to go.
If you wish, you could instead make your own acai mixture in advance. Make a big batch, then keep it in the freezer so it will only take you a few minutes to make an acai bowl when a customer orders one.
Get creative with your toppings
Lots of restaurants are serving acai bowls these days. So, you really want yours to stand out somehow. The way to do this is to offer some unique topping choices. You really only need one. Maybe you could put a cool pineapple spear on every acai bowl. Or perhaps you could always put a big, ripe blackberry on top of every one. Customers will get to know this finishing touch over time.
Offer two or three sizes
Some customers who order an acai bowl will be ordering it as their breakfast. Others will be ordering it as a small snack or a side dish. Your customers will appreciate you offering at least two different sizes of acai bowls. This way, they can order according to their appetite. This is important with acai bowls since they don't really travel well or make for good leftovers.
Serving acai bowls at your restaurant is a great move, but you need to do it with finesse and attention to detail. The tips above will help you do so.
