Have you ever wondered what “A La Carte” means? It took me awhile of the true meaning before the light bulb went on for me. It’s not the way a food is cooked. It’s not the way a food is served. It’s not a specific menu of special foods.
Some people don’t realize until they get the bill and go WOW at the total. It’s the way items are priced individually. It’s not only the food it is also the drinks you are having.
So if you think you are getting a deal because the price of each item looks cheaper, in the long run your total bill could be higher than if you ordered a complete meal.
Depending on the restaurant “A La Carte” may work out better for some if you don’t want certain foods that come with a complete meal. Now if you can substitute what you don’t want with something you prefer than stick with the complete meal.
The main think to me is to enjoy your food with family and friends.
