Eating out? Check out these tips before you go.
You Will Need
Read the entire menu
Read reviews of the restaurant online before you go. Once you arrive, peruse the entire menu, reading the descriptions carefully.
Skip the basics
Skip the basic dishes that are available in just about any restaurant.
Skip the fancy entrees
Look for main dishes that seem particularly out of the ordinary. These are probably the chef's specialties.
Stick with the restaurant's genre
Stick with the restaurant's genre. Do not go to a Japanese restaurant and order a hamburger.
Select from the remaining options
Select from the remaining options, sit back, and relax knowing that you have selected wisely.
