Applies to: Node Area Relation
Definition: Describes which kind of serving system is offered at the place.
Rendered as: Not rendered
Drafted on: 2014-02-28

Proposal

This tag can be used to describe the available serving systems in a restaurant, fast food joint, cafe or other kind of place that sells food for direct consumption.

The tag will be serving_system:a=b, where a is the serving system type, and b is the tag's value (see #Values below)

Rationale

Although it is largely irrelevant to specify the serving system of a restaurant, there are some unusual serving systems that are worth tagging.

Tagging

It can be used with most places that offers food, including amenity=restaurant, amenity=fast_food and amenity=cafe.

Values

The values are yes, no and service times, where

  • yes means "there is such a serving system in this place";
  • no means "there is not..";
  • and service times uses opening_hours=* syntax to represent when this option is available (it should be used only when this option is not available whenever the place is open).

Types of Serving System

Buffet

TODO serving_system:buffet=* Buffet

Rodízio

TODO serving_system:rodizio=* Rodízio

Smörgåsbord

TODO serving_system:smorgasbord=* Smörgåsbord

Conveyor belt

TODO serving_system:conveyor_belt=* Conveyor belt

À la carte

TODO serving_system:a_la_carte=* À la carte

Korean BBQ

TODO serving_system:korean_barbecue=* Korean barbecue


Table d'hôte

TODO serving_system:table_d'hote=* Table d'hôte


Georgian Supra

TODO serving_system:georgian_supra=* georgian supra

Food in vast amount and vast variations placed in the middle of the table, guests help themselves at will.

Other types

I cannot hope to possibly enumerate all present and future serving systems, therefore the key value of this tag is declared open-ended, i.e. use other values as needed.
