When did you know you wanted to be a chef?
Virginia Beach restaurants are often among the most popular restaurants in the world and many of them are based in the city.
But what exactly is a chef and why should you be one?

A typical day in Virginias restaurants can last from 10am until 5pm, and some even open earlier.
It can be tempting to just go for the cheapest, but there are some important things you need to remember before doing so.
First and foremost, you need the right attitude.
“Don’t feel guilty about eating a burger in the morning, if you’re hungry, you’ll get hungry later,” says Andrew Wilson, owner of the popular Virginias restaurant in Newport, on the north-east coast.
You need to make sure that you’re eating a healthy, delicious meal, he says.
“If you’re just coming to the restaurant, and you’re not sure if you want to order a burger, then you’ll find out that it’s a bit of a risk to go for a burger and not a good meal,” he says, adding that the restaurant is “absolutely” open until 5.30pm.
Then there are the ingredients you need.
“I use whole wheat bread, not just crackers, and I’m very conscious of the health benefits of it,” Wilson says.
He adds that there are no cheeses, sauces or other additives added to his burgers.
And, of course, you also need to be prepared for the weather.
Although many restaurants are closed, Wilson has restaurants on the beach that are open during peak hours.
This means that he can make reservations for customers who are not as hungry and will need a longer wait time.
The most important thing to remember is to be open and not go for dinner when it’s not really the time to be eating.
In addition, if there is a wait for your food, it’s also worth checking the menu for the best deals.
“For the most part, I don’t know what’s going on in the menu, so I just look at what’s advertised on the website and then go from there,” Wilson explains.
However, if a menu is not displayed online, you can still find the best prices.
“It’s very important that you look at the prices that are being offered,” he advises.
“You have to look at all the food prices, because if you go for an expensive meal you may end up spending a lot more than you would normally.”
