Eating Out – Do you always order the same meal?

Who doesn’t love to order an awesome meal at a local restaurant?

It’s easy, fast, and delicious.


When I went for dinner with my best friend last night, it really hit me;

We always order the same one or two meals  whenever we come to this restaurant (which is at least once a month).

Not only do we always order the same meal every time, her and I order the exact duplicate.  Ok for example:


Waitress: “Hi guys, what can I get you started for a drink?”

Lena: “I’ll have an extra spicy Caesar.”

Waitress: *looks at me* “..I’ll have a Caesar too, but not as spicy.”

*5 minutes later*

Waitress: “Are you guys ready to order?”

Me: “Yes, I’ll have the beef dip, Caesar salad, and mashed potatoes please.” (it comes with two sides)

Lena: “I will have the same exact meal.  Same sides and everything.”


There was a time when we tried different foods on this particular menu – but I guess it’s one of those scenarios; if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.


Does anyone else do this?  Or are you more adventurous when you eat out?

  • I tend to do the same thing. That or my husband and I will get two different things and try some of each others. Yes, we are those people. Heheh. Although lately I tend to choose my meals based on things that are not too messy for my 1.5 year old to eat since he shares my plate at restaurants most days if we eat out. My husband on the other hand is always looking for new things to try so he looks for really different places and dishes which forces me to try new things too, which isn’t a bad thing.

    • Ahh I absolutely love that! I do really love to explore and try new things and restaurants like you guys, but sometimes I can’t help myself lol
      Love that your husband keeps you trying new things!


  • Hi, I try to eat different foods but often end up with similar things. Sometimes it because I’m dairy free, oh and more often than not its fruit salad for dessert, chloe #TeacupClub

    • Hopefully there’s more dairy free options for you! I try to be dairy free to not upset my stomach, but I cannot resist haha
      Thanks for reading!

  • I am a really fussy eater. When I was a kid and we used to go to Pizza Hut for a treat I would only eat the crusts off of pizza because I didn’t like the goopy cheese! So I guess I’m saying yep, I pretty much always order the same stuff hehe.
