Usually, when visiting a popular award-winning restaurant, it is expected that the food will take its time before it reaches you. however, this restaurant is famous for its carne en su jugo dish and for having the world’s fastest order time. After the order is placed, the food arrives in impressive13 seconds. Karne Garibaldi has boasted the world record for the world’s fastest food service (13.5 seconds) since 1996.
How is it possible to be so fast? Well, it should be said that the traditional Mexican dishes served at this popular restaurant require hours of slow cooking, so they are ready by the time it opens. So the real art is serving the food and bringing it to the table in under 15 seconds.
“It began as a game between the waiters to see who could bring the food to each table the fastest,” Daniel Flores, the manager of the largest of Karne Garibaldi’s six branches, told VICE Magazine. “That competition led to us attempting the Guinness Record.”
Over 25 years later, waiters at Karne Garibaldi still take pride in being the fastest in the world, sometimes bringing orders to people’s tables than the official 13.5 seconds, or at the most, within one minute of taking them.
“Waiters, captains, cooks, and all of our Karne Garibaldi staff are the souls of our kitchen,” Laura Mariaud, head of digital communications at Karne Garibaldi, told Yahoo. “Therefore, the speediness of our waiters is not all that matters to make our service the fastest of all. Of course, we train our staff to learn how to be efficient, but there’s a whole process behind the preparation of the food that allows the workflow to be fast and effective. This is how our service turns into a production chain that makes the waiter service in the fastest way possible to our customers.”
