The weird relationship between price and enjoyment
People have a weird sense when it comes to buying things. They know that if they pay cheaply, they will expect that they will be given products that turn out to be cheap, too. The opposite is also true. If a person pays much, he or she will expect it to be grand.
Same things go for buffets. They keep looking for the best price to offer people to make them feel that they are eating the best run for their money. This gives them the edge that even though they use the same ingredients as cheap ones, they can trick people to pay much. This, in turn, makes them feel great because that have eaten “the best quality” food there is.
