Is it a clean place?

How do you want it?

Likewise, check whether they can cooperate with you. The best restaurant in Singapore has these different ways of cooking and preparing meals for every customer need.
Ask how it was prepared
Waiters should know how it was prepared. If they don’t know then surely there is another person who is ready to explain how it was made. There are so many terms that you can misunderstand. For an example “cholesterol free” is not the same with “fat free”. So, once you know how it was made then, you can decide whether or not to order it. The other benefit is to recognize whether there are any allergic ingredients are included.
Vegetable salads as a first step
Before you order anything else, try to fill yourself with a nutritious salad. According to researches, people who ate salads at first likely consume fewer calories afterwards throughout the dining period. But we are not talking about the bacon, noodle and other creamy salads. Vegetable salads are the best way to start your main course. You can also add some fruits and nuts for a change as well. Watch out for the different sauces and other dressings these salads have/ you can always order a Caesar salad and tell them to add only veggies.
