I got to admit my favorite Filipino Resto in Abu Dhabi is Goto King in Khalidiya mall.
The place is classy, with soft big couches and a pleasant ambiance. The dishes are authentic and tasty. But the best thing I love about Goto King is the working crew.
I am very picky with dining places. Even if I happen to like a restaurant’s food if their staff are snobs, I wouldn’t consider going back. You see, a big percentage of the dining experience is service.
Here is my principle. When servers treat you well, your heart begins to swell. The swelling of one’s heart is exercise. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t hate their food, they just don’t.
One day last week, I was craving for Pinoy food and I just had to go to Goto King. These cheerful cowboys greeted and seated me very happily. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of them and they were friendly enough to say yes.
Soon they all wanted a photo with me because I sorta looked like the girl version of them. See!
To them boys, keep up the good service!
