This customer who showed up with a detailed (damn near all-encompassing) allergy list. Allergy list from customer! from KitchenConfidential 3. This restaurant that received their order of 150 pounds of halibut in the form of one, gigantic fish. Does my supplier hate me? We ordered 150 lbs of halibut for the weekend….we got one 152lb. fish…I wanted a few collars man! from KitchenConfidential 4. This kitchen that was left in rough shape by whoever closed. I raise the "who the fuck closed last night" guy. from KitchenConfidential 5. This kitchen that's going to be short on spring mix because that's it sitting there at the very bottom of this pile, being smashed by several heavy packages of flour. Sure, let’s just stack 220 pounds of flour on top of spring mix, it should be fine. from KitchenConfidential 6. These kitchen workers who are going to have to stay late because someone ordered a bunch of stuff "well done" 16 minutes after closing time. u/UnforeseeableFuture / Via reddit.com 7. This kitchen's freezer that was left propped open after closing, resulting in a whole bunch of food being spoiled. Walked in after a day closed and the freezer was at 50 degrees. Thanks sysco. Love throwing away $1000 of inventory from KitchenConfidential 8. This kitchen that's covered in shattered dishes. Fuck from KitchenConfidential 9. This supplier that sent a mix of fresh and clearly not so fresh salami. I hate my supplier sometimes, these are both from the same delivery. Couldn’t send it back because I wasn’t there. from KitchenConfidential 10. This gorgeous, fancy steak that a chef had to prepare, only to lather it in slices of American cheese. Ordering this should lower your credit score from KitchenConfidential 11. This person responsible for cleaning out clams to make chowder, a process that takes A LOT of squeezing for very little juice. Make clam chowder they said, it'll be fun they said. 3lbs of clams shucked and cleaned. Only 18 more lbs to go from KitchenConfidential 12. This kitchen that has a bunch of corny, cliché hater-y music opinions that are very limiting and probably make for a really lame vibe. So what exactly are they ALLOWED to listen to in the kitchen? from KitchenConfidential 13. This kitchen that is extremely backed up on incoming tickets and sure to be playing catchup the entire shift. u/rlsands1997 / Via reddit.com 14. This kitchen that needed a bunch of fingerling potatoes precut, and the new guy was asked to do it without being shown the proper direction to slice. I asked the new guy to split fingerling potatoes for dinner service 🤦 from KitchenConfidential For context, fingerling potatoes should be cut in half vertically, as seen below: Jmichl / Getty Images 15. This kitchen that's dealing with leaks while backed up on orders and being expected to get stuff done as usual. And they want to to continue on like nothing happened and start service ON TIME. mind you the online ordering system is ringing in tickets 2 hours before we open. Lol. from KitchenConfidential 16. And this kitchen's leaks happening RIGHT ABOVE the grill. If you think you're having a bad day. Yeah....I can't even right now from KitchenConfidential 17. These order tickets for a table of 10 and a table of 14 who got seated simultaneously. Ah ok, table of 14 and table of 10. Lets seat them both at once. from KitchenConfidential 18. This kitchen that took on the task of making 500 wraps in an hour. Busting out 500 sandwiches in an hour today. from KitchenConfidential 19. And finally, this disaster that occurred minutes before closing time. 5 minutes before close after a 12 hour shift... from KitchenConfidential H/T: r/KitchenConfidential.
