Going out to dinner with friends or family is always a treat. Delicious food prepared and served by someone else is ALWAYS a bonus especially when they are a chef! At the same time, it can get expensive if your eyes are bigger than your stomach. .
This is something I've now learned after making the same mistakes repeatedly when ordering. Remember, portion sizes in the restaurant are usually quite large so when you order be mindful of this when thinking about your appetizers.
IF your are sharing an appetizer between 2 or 3 people this is the best situation, cost and portion wise. Ordering an app for yourself always sounds good in theory, until A) your main arrives and you're stuffed. or B) your bill arrives and it's hefty. I don't know how many times I've had to package up my dinner to go. Truthfully, some foods are just as good reheated but burgers, sandwiches, fries etc, these items usually don't taste nearly as good the second time around.
Just a thought!
