Chefs Share The Most Stupidest Orders Ever – The Chef’s Circle

Yes Chefs These Actually Happened! Chadateit My personal favourite was a banquet order for a Caesar’s salad (for a party of about 100 people) that, 20 minutes before plating, was updated saying that the Caesar dressing couldn’t have anchovies, garlic, or egg. What do you even say to that? Just Jim “I’m very allergic to garlic, is there any in the special?” “Yes, there is a little” “Well, as long as I can’t see it I’ll be okay. I’ll have the special.” Shi Chang Chu I want the stuffed salmon. I don’t like the taste of salmon though, so don’t make it taste like salmon. RAS1187 Order for well done burger. Not unusual, but the guest told the server, “My doctor told me I can’t have any red meat” and was dead serious. Colomboshute Today’s special was sirloin a la plancha and a customer asked my wife if we could make it vegetarian… Recky Customer complains after eating her omelette that the menu didn’t explicitly state that it contained “so much egg…” Just Jim “Can I get the special with fettuccine? I’m allergic to penne.” “You’re allergic to a shape?” Sergeant Pepper Obligatory hybrid temperatures on steaks. Will Well-done steak tartare. Good to go Mid-rare ossu rucco. Shanks We had a guest claim that they were allergic to all fish then order a Caesar salad, when I said that the dressing contained anchovies they got annoyed and said “I eat it all the time, it’s fine!” RAS1187 French onion soup, no onions. Locomoco The other day I got a ticket that read: “Cheese plate (no dairy).” Sergeant Pepper Vegetarian filet mignon. Otto On a flight from NYC to Madrid, some woman ordered diet water… bewildered-chef Redbeerd Cantu “Can you please make sure that the chicken is well-done? I don’t like my chicken bloody…” Mazardhe Lady asks to see me during brunch. She tells me she wants a low-fat eggs Benedict. She wants no yolks. At all. I try to explain that yolks are a key ingredient [in] the sauce. She tells me that a good chef should be able to make it happen. She got meringue-covered egg whites. Ewww… Ramiro Exposito Gaspe Paella without rice please. Ras1187 Order for burger with cheese on the side… melted. “So you want me to melt the cheese on a plate?” “Yes.” Bill Pitcher Romaine being too crunchy. Brian Barber Had a medium-rare pastrami order last night. Steven Wong Eye fillet medium-rare, no blood. RedBeerd Cantu Just the other day, we got an order for our shrimp entree, hold the Manchego, “because I’m vegetarian, but please leave the chorizo on.” Berndy I’ll have the frenched rack of lamb, but not from France. I don’t like my food to come from so far away. CapeCodChef Veggie burger, well done, no blood. CMChef Chilean sea bass, hold the chilli. Kitty K Customer requested tuna poke “well done.” Had to gently explain that it didn’t really work that way. Justachef Chicken Cordon Bleu with the ham and cheese on the side. Sparkie Lasagna, no meat, no béchamel. Berndy Sauerkraut, hold the cabbage. Ras1187 Shrimp cocktail sent back. The complaint, “It’s cold.” PaigeCake I had a woman nearly brought to tears and anxiety-ridden after she viewed the pasta special dish (that SHE ordered) when brought to her table. She placed her head in her hands and kept repeating “Oh no … I can’t eat that … I won’t eat that … Oh no … I can’t…” The husband finally looks at me: “She won’t eat that,” I ask: “Ummmmm WHY?” The husband replies; “It has lines on it.” (She had ordered a rigatoni special). YOU try bringing that back into the kitchen with that excuse, and expect a chef to cook something else. Dpr8ter We used to have a lady come in who was absolutely loaded, and she always had the strangest requests for her meals. The strangest one I remember was she ordered the Caesar salad, but she wanted it on top of a smear of mashed potatoes. Scofield143 “No burger, no onions, no tomato, no egg, no bacon, no pickles, no fries, no anything, Just buns.” Chefdwilliams “Can you make another larger pizza for my buddies, 1/2 regular dough and 1/2 gluten free?” Idiatone “Fillet mignon, what kind of fish is that?” server Steven Wong A scoop of vanilla ice cream with the vanilla seed removed. Craig Ross Woman sent a scotch egg back with this excuse – ‘If I knew a scotch egg had an egg in it I wouldn’t have ordered it.’ Carl Dillahay Potatoes without carbohydrates. Austin Finn I once was asked for a cappuccino with the foam on the side. Sarah Pugh $22 Caesar salad, add chicken. No dressing, no cheese, no marinated onions, no croutons, no salt, no pepper, no oil on chicken. And yes, this was three weeks into new year’s resolution diet season. Benjamin Maiorano I had an older customer send her food back because she was ‘allergic to large portions. They overwhelm me.’ Salvador Franco Order of pasta well done and fries medium-well. Tim Marbach Had an entire 10 top at brunch request ‘nothing white’ in all of their dishes. Frank Molano I still remember the one time a server at the Yacht Club came back to the kitchen saying a member wanted to order a half of a cheese
