NMP Selection Matters

August 20th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by Jin Yao Kwan that originally appeared at guanyinmiao's musings.

人家问起我知不知道德成饭店,我知道这家饭店,因为每天晚餐时间路过此地肯定会看见人潮汹涌的场面,可是我却没有想过要到那里品尝他的美食。那天在访问完了《触鬼》的团队之后,其中一位老板就说要到附近的德成饭店吃饭,但是又找不到电话。我问为何需要电话,他说每天晚餐时间要是没有订座,那就可能必须排队等。 我心想:有没有如此夸张啊? 德成饭店其实也只不过是一家很普通的煮炒而已喔?果真,我们一抵达饭店那里早就挤满了人,大排长龙。有些甚至位子还没找到就已经拿着菜单看然后就立马下单。店员忙到脸皮都紧绷到挤不出笑容,每个的手脚都非常急促,忙得不可开交。等了许久,终于轮到我们…….领号码牌了!
