I came back home early from office today and my kid just pounced on and hugged me with happiness even before I could just put a step into the house. I didn’t get what she had in her mind. I somehow managed my breath and on asking she said she has been made the head girl of the primary section and needed a treat. I agreed and after a short outing we reached our favourite restaurant near our house to have dinner. I tried on some other restaurants too but somehow I have longing to eat at this restaurant even if I had to wait a little while till a table is free. Not because the restaurant is nearby but the food is so yummy and the service is so good. So whenever we want to dine outside this restaurant has been our first option. Do you dine outside? Do you go to the same restaurant or try on different restaurants everytime. share your experiences and thoughts.

there are some restaraunts here which are specialist in certain kind of dishes which you cant get in any other restaraunts. but i get on to them only when i get to know from some vistors who had already been there.

Well this town we live in is tiny ,a tiny little tourist town.I can name all the restaurants on one hand so yes i have tried them all..We do have fast foods like Sonic,KFC,whatabutger ,and dairy Queen but im not counting those...My favorite restaurant is a chinese restaurant,they have a menu and also a buffet,we always get the Buffet....It has everything there,it is very good...If i want to eat breakfast though i go to a fairly large resturant in the middle of town,thats where everyone meets up for breakfast..We only have 3 mexican food places,one steak house,and two chinese places....Congrads to your little daughter...

buffet offers are in the restaraunt we regular but then they have around 20 dishes including ice creams and fruit salads. we tried that once and it was great but it was really confusing what to eat first and next. :) thanks for your response

Hi, I love dining out, it's one of my fave things to do, especially as I'm one of the worst cooks in the world so eating out is betting than getting some kind of food poisoning lol! I tend to stick to restaurants where the both the food and the service is excellent. We do try other restaurants in the area, but most usually fail whether the food is bad or the service is bad or sadly on most occasions both, so that why I keep going back to the same one.

almost all the restaraunts have similar country menus on their list unlike the unique chinese or thai restaraunts here. but the taste in the restaraunt we go regularly is matchless. the serving staff are so kind and quick. being a regular visitor i always got good service which i couldnt see in other restaraunts.

Gosh yes you're right, if you get 'known' at your favourite restaurant then yes I guess you would get better service too, didn't think of that one!

We try to dine at different restaurants, and often end up in the same restaurant. This is due to different tastebuds in the company and the food served by the restaurants plus the size of the hole it will burn in our pockets. That particular one restaurant seems to be able to satisfy everyone in terms of food and budget.

thats what happened with us after trying few other restaraunts. not because of they charge handsomely but could never satisfy for our apetite at all.

my bf and i dine out at least once a week.usually on frinday night,when both of us need some relief from work and study for a whole week.instead of taking the risk of getting weird food,we go to some particular restaurants regularly.but sometimes we enjoy trying new things with our friends as well.

we are very choosy about restaurents. let me tell you, that when we go to a restaurent, there must be something like first time. But we rarely try out new ones. Rather there are two or three restaurents that we have gone many times before and love the foods there. We go there most of the times.

I also love to try different restaurants from time to time BUT it depends on how much I have on my purse. I rarely go to expensive restaurant as I find their prices ridiculously high. For a slab of my favorite steak, it will cost me 3 months of mylotting. Recently, a friend suggested a fancy steak house. I was amazed to see a lot of people dining in there. Not only was the steak so delicious, it was also affordable. I SMS message all my family and friends about this place. Since then, I always go there whenever I feet the urge for a steak.

food is my middle name lol... so me and my kids try out on different restaurant. then sometimes we come back on a restaurant when we crave something that we like. we dine on those not so expensive and it do taste good. we come back to kenny rogers if we are craving for baby back ribs for example. but as much as possible we try to eat on a new resto everytime we have the budget to go out and eat.

There are a few restaurants that I like that I will return to again and again, but in between I like to try out different onces, just for the experience, and for the variety. I enjoy new experiences, but I also have some old favourites.

i tried on few other nearby ones but the same dish had a different taste as if it was made the earlier day and mixed up with the days dish. eeeeekkk i could sense some sourness. so i could never take chances again at the cost of heath.

It depends on whether I am in an adventurous mood. If I am, I would want to try new things. Otherwise I would just stick to the old and familiar. If the offerings are attractive enough, I normally prefer to try new places - unless the food at the old place is really good. ^^

my family tends to eat out at the same places all the time. Once in awhile, we will stray and go somewhere else, but that is not often at all. Most of the reason is my diet. i am a very, very strict vegetarian and there are only certain places that carry anthign i can have. i also am a diabetic and have kidney failsure, so i need to be careful of those conditions.
