Gordon Ramsay has been offering up some tips and advice on how what you should never order when dining out at a restaurant.
Speaking with the Mail Online, the British chef claimed that the specials in a restaurant are something he never orders, with a caveat.
“Specials are there to disappear throughout the evening. When they list 10 specials, that’s not special,” said Ramsay. It's worth noting, however, that many of us at FDL HQ love a short specials board, especially when you see something crossed out for the evening.
The chef also said he avoids orders with names that are too boastful, “when they turn around and tell me it is the ‘famous red lasagne, who made it famous?’. He said he also avoids terms like ‘wicked’ and ‘best in the country’.
