    Improperly cooked food at a restaurant?

    So we've all gone out to eat and received food that is improperly cooked or we're just dissatisfied with. We have a few options, but what do we do about it? Please answer the poll and then feel free to write comments in the thread.

    It makes all the difference whether the problem is improper cooking by normal standards, or personal dissatisfaction. If the former, and it's a reputable establishment such that it's unlikely the chef will spit in the food served you as replacement, send it back to the kitchen specifying what the problem is. If the latter, diners-out when they dine out assume the risk of being served something not to their own taste; but that's not the kitchen's fault, nor should the establishment be expected to subsidize someone's pickiness or weird taste. In this case, don't eat what you don't like, pay the tab like a civilized human being, and go your merry way.

    @OrganizedChaos You seem convinced that INFJs goal of life is to help others and you're trying to prove that by creating polls that are supposed to show how selfness we are.

    This poll cannot prove anything since :

    -90% of the customers wouldn't be bothered enough to complain about food they didn't like, regardless of their types
    -90% of the customers would definitely complain if there was something disgusting like a spit, regardless of their types

    I would also add that you definitely do not understand how Fe works. I know several INFJs and none of them including myself have their own goals centered around helping others. (I say this because I saw in the other thread you created that apparently we came to earth to help people and that we take absolute joy in that)

    Therefore your poll is definitely useless

    If it's simply a difference in taste preferences, I do nothing since I ordered it. If it's poorly cooked, it's sent back.

    14 Years working as a Chef. I only send back when there are really bad mistakes like cold food that should be hot, burned or very undercooked/raw. I don't have issue with dealing with people and I know others have, mainly introverts. One time my INFP girlfriend got really burned tartlet for the dessert and I could hear it sizzling when the waiter brought it. She couldn't complain so I switched mine with her and dealt with it. They offered us both desserts for free. If I'm eating out and there is a hair in my food I put it on the side of the plate and keep eating. I would never assume someone is spitting in my food since food and complaints are taken seriously here.

    As long as it's not durian, I don't care. But bring me a chanee when I pay for a kradum thong and I shall mercilessly ... eat the chanee and order a gan yao.

    I miss my stash

    Improperly cooked food is dangerous food when under cooked or even raw, sending it back is better than getting caught and written up by an inspector or worse someone gets sick. Haven been a baker honest mistakes do happen and there are bad days so there is always two sides to this.

    I don't believe I've ever been in that situation. Sometimes I may not be satisfied with the quality, but that doesn't mean there's anything actually wrong with the food, it simply is below the standards of either a known and good restaurant or one which, by personal and critical reviews, could have been expected to be better in some way.

    In this case, I would leave an average or slightly lower tip, as I would if the service was not up to standards. I would certainly eat it though. If I were in a situation in which the food seemed potentially bad (could make me sick), I would not eat it, and I probably would not stay at that place either.

    I have been in some situations where while not poorly cooked (ie could be bad for me, as I've interpreted the question) the food was pretty unappetizing. The prime example of this would be cafeterias at music camps. Usually in those cases I simply avoid eating as much as possible, but in one camp they made everyone get quite a lot of food. I would eat the entire plate even if I were on the verge of gagging, I can't stand to waste anything to that degree. (I realize neither of those scenarios are incredibly healthy, but that's beside the point for now.) I've come across far too many people who will throw away half a plate of food because they either thoughtlessly got too much or they didn't really like it. This is very distressing to me, to think of the waste that people simply aren't even aware of in their daily lives.

    Given your late threads I would like to state also that I do not believe there is any reason to think the answers here could have anything logical to do with MBTI, in case you were heading in that direction.
