Sometimes you just want to relax and stay far away from the kitchen. So you dress up and head out to a restaurant to enjoy some delicious food or maybe you just grab a quick bite at a cafe because even that’s better than standing over a stove. However, sometimes we receive our order and suddenly realize that it was probably a better idea to stay at home and finish that pasta leftover from yesterday.

At Enlighten, we’ve been disappointed with the food we ordered many times and even laughed at some of the dishes when they arrived. That’s why we sincerely sympathize with everyone whose meal in a restaurant turned out to be, to put it mildly, so-so.
