Sanitization and Hygiene is Priority For Guests: Star Hotel Chefs

Star hotel chefs are also aiming towards new healthier dishes holding good immunity

There is not much of a change in the star hotel guests’ style of eating in terms of portion size during the post-COVID-19 lockdown period, but they are looking for healthier dishes that boost immunity, said star hotel chefs.

The chefs also said the bento boxes have gained popularity with their guests.

“We are slowly witnessing growth in the number of guests that are visiting our restaurants now. Initially, post the lockdown, the response was comparatively low as the guests were reluctant to step outside. However, this is now changing and we definitely can look at having our full strength in a couple of months,” Gopi Thangaraj, Sous Chef, Novotel Chennai Chamiers Road here told IANS.

He said the hotel remained open throughout the lockdown phase, as it had few guests and patrons who continued their stay at the hotel. During this time, we noticed that many of our guests were moving towards healthy options for their food preferences.

“There is no change in the guests’ eating habits as well in terms of portion size. The portion size still remains the same and we have not changed the size of our helping,” Thangaraj added.
