Kitchen Confidential takes a peek behind the curtain at our favorite bars and restaurants and the misadventures that people (like you) get up to when given too much free reign. 

Rodrigo González is, for lack of a better term, the man. Having cooked in kitchens in Guangzhou, Shanghai and now Shenzhen, González has had his fair share of wild F&B experiences and we always enjoy catching up with him for a drink and a chat. Below, he shares his thoughts… 

On outrageous drink orders…
Some people like to order whiskey on the rocks with no ice. One time I saw a customer mixing sugar bags into white wine.

On dumb food requests…
“I want my steak super well done, but also super juicy… Please, I want the salmon but I don’t want it to taste like fish.”

Pizza vs. pasta…
I’m more of a pizza guy, it’s a dish that you can eat alone or with friends. I think good food brings people together and pizza is one of those dishes. Pizza is perfect, simple but perfect.
