At a girls dinner tonight, I realized I often get stuck in a rut of going to the same restaurants over and over. I’d forgotten how much fun it is to try new places and their food, drinks, and ambience. Of course, I rarely regret experimenting, but sometimes it’s just nice to have a few go-tos.
From there, I thought of this post. Everyone has their signature order at any type of restaurants, and these are mine. If you’re curious, here’s what I order at a…
Sushi restaurant: Tempura shrimp rolls and a Japanese salad, which is a specialty at a local place but deserving of a spot.
Pub: A burger and fries.
Salad bar: Spring mix with romaine, cucumbers, carrots, celery, green peppers, radishes, tomato, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, and any sort of citrusy dressing. At my local spot it’s chipotle lime and it couldn’t be better.
Mexican restaurant: Soft shell carnitas.
Italian restaurant: Eggplant parmesan, linguine with any lemon-based sauce, or Bolognese.
Sprinkles: Strawberry or sprinkle cupcake. What dreams are made of.
Chipotle: Chips and guac.
Moe’s: A Close Talker in a hard shell bowl with romaine, chicken, black beans, cucumber, medium salsa, guac, and loads of their Southwest vinaigrette.
Southern restaurant: Chicken and waffles, tomato pie, or anything with jalapeno grits.
Those are really the only types of spots I frequent. I’m not a huge sushi person, but that’s where I was tonight so I added it first.
What are your ride or die orders at any type of restaurant?
