Recently Penang State Government proposed that effective year 2015, restaurant should only 5 dishes 1 soup (instead of 8 usually) in their course dinner for wedding and organization function to prevent food wastage and help to save money. This proposal receive many criticism with both support and discourage.
In my opinion, this is a good move as serving 8 type of course generally is a wastage in most of the dinner event. Typically:
1. Mixed plate
7th dish – Rice. Most of the guest has full or leave the hall. Therefore it’s a wastage.
8th dish. Dessert.
