THE PRINCIPLES OF ONE-WAY KITCHEN DESIGN FOR KITCHEN, RESTAURANT AND INDUSTRIAL KITCHENS
In the framework of this article, TOAN PHAT want to share with those who are interested in the restaurant business with the principles and process of kitchen designing that we have applied & constructed for many restaurants ...
The most important principle in kitchen designing is to design a one-way kitchen process which can ensure a one-way circulation of food and avoid overlap in cooking stages to save time. At the same time, avoiding collision between raw foods to ensure food safety and hygiene.
1. Imported food will be sorted, processed and stored in storage refrigerators & shelves in the warehouse.
2. Before cooking, food is taken out of preliminary processing in the preliminary processing area.
3. After preliminary processing, any un-cooked food will be stored in a storage area and any cooked food will be prepared or stored in cold tables in the cooking area to prepare it.
4. Cold dishes like vegetables and salads are cooked in a cold kitchen.
5. Hot dishes will be prepared in the cooking area, in this area, there will be suitable kitchen equipment such as European kitchen, Asian kitchen, frying stove, oven ...
6. Finished food will be displayed and ready to be served to guests at the pick-up area.
7. After serving, dishes will be put into the washing area.

Depending on the amount of food or more, the restaurant will need to be equipped with a freezer, or a 4-door freezer, 2-door freezer.
- Dry warehouse: 4-storey stainless steel shelves for dry food: rice, spices ...), stainless steel storage cabinets.
- Can arrange an additional stainless steel trolley to transport food when importing warehouse & arrange ice cube maker machine (in case of using a lot of ice, it will ensure hygiene safety, take the initiative in volume as well as production time.

This is an indispensable part in the kitchen that uses gas kitchen appliances. Gas systems and gas equipment supplied by Toan Phat comply with strict fire protection regulations, control cabinets, alarm sirens when there are problems of gas leakage and automatic gas shutoff when there is a gas problem. All of these devices help restaurant owners feel secure when using their kitchen appliances.
The arrangement of kitchen areas ensures the convenience of using appliances in the kitchen, saving food processing time, food hygiene and safety. Toan Phat always wants to give customers the comfort in the restaurant's kitchen, ensure to bring the best dishes.
