I don't think your article is truly a fair comparison. In your blog, you are choosing the least expensive item at the Table Service restaurant and the most expensive at the Quick Service restaurant.
If you're going to compare the Yak and Yeti restaurants, compare prices of the same dish:

In all reality, the purpose of including some dishes and their prices was not to equate what the same meal would cost at a QS vs TS. The point was to raise the question...are QS meals increasing to the point of becoming closer to the cost of a TS meal? For some (and seemingly more and more), this is the case.
The Cobb salad which was mentioned, for example, is actually an appetizer for two people that was used as an entree. I was much more stuffed from that than the burger I had at a QS that same week. One could then say that you are getting more food and of a better quality at TS as opposed to QS which would justify a few extra dollars.
Similarly, it's obvious that most would see that I never picked out lobster or steak to compare; we all know those dishes cost more.
Another factor that many have brought up here, on the blog comments page, and on FB is the fact that the TiW card brings TS meal costs down quite a bit. When weighing that against the QS scale, it definitely raises a question of which option is best to spend one's money on.
How one dines is obviously going to be different from person to person. With that being said, I think looking at some of the costs of items in both types of eateries is worth a look. There is a large population of folks who believe the only "reasonable" and "affordable" option is QS; after really thinking about how much the average QS meal costs, TS might be a better option for some.
