The idea for Macrina Bakery & Cafe existed long before we opened our doors. The seed was planted while Leslie Mackie was in cooking school and continued to take root throughout her early restaurant career and during her travels.

This is pretty fail-safe. Really glad for compostable bowls (they were compostable, weren't they? That matters!) Need 2 less full pans of rice- had 3 and 1 per line is enough. Had too much tofu, need 1/2 pan less (quantity down to 30 for tofu). Also had a lot of extra seaweed, onions and wontons, so we can ease up a bit on quantities. Yummy shortbread butter cookies.
Chef Kay Kim is popular. Too much meat for 107 hc but salad really short for high 130 hc - didn't make sense. Need 1 more full tray of salad, need 4 full had 3. Dbl Japchae noodles to 110 and cucumbers halve to 60. Salad and noodles ran out at 12:05pm. Perfect amount of rice and meat was good but chicken and beef were too sweet. Needed another full pan of tofu. Dbl vegetarian headcount to 40.
So this Korean chef is definitely popular with our team - but our numbers and the quantities were crazy. There was way too much meat! And that meat for 107 was so plentiful and salad for 130 was so short didn't make much sense. We needed one more full tray of salad and according to Chris and Cacula (who watch the lines most closely) we typically have one full plan as a back-up. That said, we almost always have leftovers so today was weird.
Japchae noodles needed doubling+ to 110 and cucumbers could have been halved+ to 60 - we should have swapped those numbers! Both salad and noodles ran out at 12:05pm. We had the perfect amount of rice and the meat was good but both chicken and beef were too sweet. The tofu was really popular today and we
needed at least another full tray. For future we want to double our vegetarian headcount to 40.
