Are there any things you see on menus that immediately make you stop and think, “Hmmm…do I really, really want to risk ordering this?”
For me, anything that’s enclosed in quotation marks will make me pause:
“Gramma’s” or “Nellie’s” or “Uncle Joe’s” or…etc.
Why the need for the weird punctuation?
Through years of ordering dishes with descriptions containing quotation marks, I’ve learned it’s just a bad idea:
There was that “Classic” Caesar Salad which contained grapefruit segments, tomatoes, and a citrus vinaigrette - or perhaps I’m conflating that with the “Traditional” Caesar Salad which came with diced avocados and…bacon bits, along with a balsamic dressing!
Then there was the “Homestyle” (what does that even mean?!) macaroni and cheese that was - I’d almost swear on a stack of holy books - some off-brand of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.
What gives you pause?
