Congee Queen - odd/irritating takeout policy?
Fast fwd to next time we ate there, we ate some stuff and couldn't finish so asked for some take-out trays. They gave us some styrofoam containers and I was wondering what happened to the microwavable ones that I got w/ the take-out stuff from my previous time. Now I finally figured out why the waiter had a 'fit' the 1st time: apparently, if you order 'to-go', they give you the better microwavable containers, but if you wanted to take your dine-in food leftovers, they only give you the styrofoam, but, you could *buy* the microwavables for $1 each. LOL, what a joke, *that's* the reason for having a major fit for me eating the takeout food in the restaurant??? The irony was that I expected the usual cheap stryofoam as takeout containers given this is a Chinese restaurant and that's the expected mentality to cut corners/cheap-out/etc (I'm Chinese so I can say that and it's true anyway) so it's no biggie, but was pleasantly surprised that it was microwavable and even had 'Congee Queen' embossing - very professional. Now due to this weird policy, it became a turn-off. I'm still guessing why they have that 'don't eat take-out stuff in the restaurant' policy...are some cheap ppl trying to hoard those microwavables and always ordering takeout just to mooch those containers? I dunno. Just so silly they would differentiate between leftovers vs takeout and actually charge 'extra' for the better containers: they are discriminating against leftovers, as if they don't need to be reheated, vs takeouts. Hilarious the mindset of cheap ppl. Again, it was quite ironic as I rather they just give out the styrofoams only, but now they do this, it's just seems so petty and irritating to me.
What do you think? No biggie or weird policy?
