Packaging Gone Wild

Blog

For some odd reason, PF Chang's discontinued its sliced ahi tuna appetizer. I have no idea why, those were tasty bites.

They did, however, replace it with a delicious poké and avocado on wonton appetizer. It is wonderful. A mouth party of delight with every bite.

The packaging, however, is not so wonderful.

Instead of five wontons with the tuna and avocado on top, they deliver five wontons with five individual containers full of tuna an avocado.

As someone who often wants to bring her own dishes to restaurants that use only disposable dishes, I find this excess of plastic overwhelming and unnecessary. I won't be ordering this dish to-go again, that's for sure.

The lesson here might be "Dine in."

Or maybe, "Cook for yourself."
