A Stay-at-home Dad's Restaurant In An Alternate World - Chapter 1253
Chapter 1253: Alright. This Was An Accident…
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
In just one night, the name hot pot became known throughout Chaos City’s social circles.
The topic that was the most discussed in all the social circles today was without a doubt that impactful hot pot.
“Should we go and eat hot pot tonight?”
This had become a very common conversation between foodies setting up their dinner appointments.
The subverted eating method that got the customers involved in the cooking was very innovative, and the standardized cooking time also allowed the customers to cook delicious food. This piqued the curiosity of many people.
However, the average spending of 1000+ per person had restricted many people’s actions.
Therefore, eating hot pot had become a very extravagant affair.
However, to the foodies, DIY was where the fun was when they didn’t have the money.
A maiden with long flaxen hair came forward, and asked her colleague who was doing the accounts, “Shanshan, tell me again, how long did you dip all the different ingredients in the pot? I will go and try it tonight.”
“Give it up, Rena. I feel that the crux of the hot pot isn’t in the ingredients, but in that pot of scrumptious broth. However, I have no idea what other spices and condiments were in the broth apart from chilies, so I also don’t know what to do.” The maiden named Shanshan raised her head to look at Rena, and passed her the ledger casually. “It’s already the end of the month. You’d better complete the review by today before you get off work, or else the boss will never let you off.”
“She dumped such a heavy workload on the two of us, and scolded us whenever she felt like it. The monthly salary is not enough for us to have a few good meals. I really have enough of this boss.” Fatigue could be seen on Rena’s pretty face.
“You’re right. It will be great if we can be the service staff of Mamy Restaurant. We will get to eat the delicacies made by Boss Mag every day, and even if we will be very busy during operation hours, Boss Mag is so nice and handsome it would be a bliss to work there,” Shanshan said with a look of anticipation.
“It’s so good!” Rena’s eyes lit up.
“Don’t even think about it. The women who want to become Mamy Restaurant’s service staff could go around the entire Chaos City for three times. To become Boss Mag’s women, they have to be beautiful and capable, but we…” Shanshan looked at her flabby tummy, and then looked at Rena.
Rena was rather pretty and slender, but her dressing was too casual and old-fashioned. Her flaxen hair was tied up casually with a hemp thread, and she was wearing an old linen long skirt. She would definitely look out of place if she was standing next to Mamy Restaurant’s service staff.
“You’ve got a point. That restaurant wouldn’t want someone like me, as it is so sophiscated.” Rena nodded sadly, but her eyes quickly lit up. “Even though I can’t join their staff, I could still go and watch them eat hot pot today. Maybe I could learn from them.”
“I really wish you could succeed so I could go to your house to eat hot pot in the future.” Shanshan nodded with a smile. This colleague of hers was only so-so in her work, but she was very gifted when it came to food. As long as she saw how the food was made, she could recreate it when she got home, and it would taste 80-90% like the original.
However, those foods were from the normal restaurants and street vendors. She didn’t quite believe she could replicate the delicacies made by Boss Mag perfectly. The foods that Boss Mag made were unique.
“I’d better complete my work first, otherwise that demoness will come and look for trouble with me.” Rena went back to her seat, hugging the ledger.
During the afternoon break, Gina received the flying fish reply from Lantisde.
The high priest of Lantisde would personally lead 400 Lantisdean merfolk warriors to support their efforts. Amongst them were ten 10th-tier powerhouses, forty 9th-tier powerhouses, and the rest were all 7th-tier and 8th-tier powerhouses.
It was a rather extravagant and sincere reinforcement lineup.
Mag lit that secret missive up, and said to Gina, “Inform them that Miya and Elizabeth will set out to fetch them tonight. They will be going up north together to support the Night Elves.”
“Alright.” Gina nodded. She wrote another missive, and stuffed it into the flying fish’s stomach before releasing it.
“Boss, although I would like to join you guys very much, my master said I would most likely end up in the opposite camp if I go along. Do you think I should still go?” Connie laid her head on the counter as she yawned. She had dark eye circles and looked very sleep-deprived.
“I think you’d better not.” Mag gazed at Connie, and felt that her master was indeed a good judge of character.
“Okay.” Connie shrugged. She knew herself, and it would be really awkward if she got lost on the battlefield.
“Meow.” Ugly Duckling came over, plopped onto her arm, and slept comfortably.
“Ugly Duckling, you only sleep and eat every day. Be careful, you might become a pig,” Connie said disdainfully. She then yawned and fell asleep on the counter.
“Oh, yes. I need to write a recruitment advertisement.” Mag suddenly remembered a very important issue. The hot pot’s trial operation last night had fully revealed that the restaurant was understaffed. Miya and the ladies had to serve the customers of both the normal zone and the hot pot zone, so they had to run around the restaurant. As a result, the error ratio had increased a few times, and they looked very busy.
This was not in line with the business philosophy that Mag had established for the restaurant. Busy servers would only lower the customers’ dining experience, and made the affair of enjoying the good food seem rushed. This was a problem that he had to solve as soon as possible.
Mag took a little blackboard and pondered for a moment before he started writing. Then, he hung it at the door straight away.
“Boss, we have read your recruitment advertisement. Are you sure that you are really asking for those qualities?” In the evening when Miya and the ladies came to work, they came in and looked at Mag with a strange expression.
“Are the requirements too broad?” Mag was a little puzzled.
“No. I feel they are a little too detailed, just like…” Miya shook her head as she tried to find a suitable word.
“You can ask for good looks, but why do you care how busty a server is? Furthermore, the butt has nothing to do with serving dishes? Or you are actually not just looking for service staff?” Babla put one arm across her chest and supported her chin with the other as she looked at Mag judgingly.
Everyone began to look at Mag.
Mag cleared his throat before saying, “Ahem… It isn’t what you ladies think it is. The sizes of the bosom and the butt are just to create a rough limit so we can screen out some people who do not meet the criteria. Otherwise, the people lining up for the interview could go all the way to the city’s gates. I choose my service staff based on their capabilities and ability to react to different situations…”
“Aw…” Connie stretched as she yawned. Then, she rubbed her eyes and said, “You are all here. Are we starting dinner soon?”
All of them looked at Connie, and then stared at Mag. No words were necessary, as all was understood.
“Alright. This was an accident…” Mag was embarrassed.
