An Incident tonight in the Restaurant where I work prompts this question-Do you go for a safe option when ordering if You don't recognise something on the Menu,or take a chance on being pleasantly surprised by something New? Do you ask questions of the staff about Menu items you might not recognise? We have a new French Chef and He's trying out Ideas with his menus. Tonight,we had a Mushroom Veloute on the Starter Menu (Appetisers!) A Veloute can be a sauce or a soup,characterised by being creamy,smooth,and velvety (where the name comes from) The Woman on this particular table who ordered it surprised the waitress When She Herself was surprised to discover the item was a soup...anyway, She didn't send it back! Thanks for responses!

I think I am very adventurous and order many things I don't know or never tried before. But at first I will ask what it is if the name is not familiar to me. One time I order frog legs, what I never had before and it was really good.

I think that all chef's try to make their food sound more special with fancy names and pretty sides. I like to try new things but i usually wait til i see something i like the sound of or someone has recommended trying it. I love mushroom soup so i wouldn't have complained either.

Dude, you need to be adventurous with your food in order to clearly know what you like i swear, lol. I am very adventurous with foods and anything else, after all you'll never know if you don't give it a try.
