LOL, are you referring to *vegetables*? :) 



No, I know what that is, it was a place that was all fancy and used bizzare words for things in the names of dishes, trying to be all snooty and fancy. I hate going to dinner at places like that with friends when the food is normally not something I would like, and costs about $80 and I have to ask the server to explain what things are.





Haha, we could not be more different. I like that kind of dining, but then I have a pretty wide taste in food. Generally, I am more interested in how it tastes than how it looks, though it's best if it looks and tastes great.

I prefer to have the pictures so I know how much I am getting. Nothing worse than choosing something and it comes out and is about the size of a maccas cheeseburger on a giant plate.

My wife is 5 foot 2 and about 47kg. She often just orders an entree. We get stares from the wait staff and kitchen as though we'd just killed their first born. The thing is, she will order a main if she sees something that takes her fancy. Only to leave half of and have the wait staff ask "was there something wrong with it".
