Okay my turn, some weird, some just a little off. Mostly when I was in Alaska.
One guy with too much money and champagne wants a burger made with beef tenderloin. Guess he figured it was the most expensive cut, it must make the best burger. Hard as **** to keep together, tasted pretty worthless to me. Got a **** nice tip out of it though!
One person ordered NY Strip "Pittsburgh Style" and make it medium well done! I told the waiter if the customer didn't know what the **** they were ordering I wasn't going to make it! (I did of course, but that was in my young, uppity chef days!) FYI "Pittsburgh style" is BURNED on the outside and RAW on the inside! AKA Black and Blue.
This was a very expensive high class restaurant. I received a call that a couple were going to come in for their 10th Anniversary. He proposed at this restaurant and they wanted to come in for a special dinner. I of course was chomping at the bit at the opportunity to spread my creative wings and give them the dinner of their lives! They told me they wanted what they had 10 years ago; Chicken Fried Steak !!! I wanted to cry. I took that night off:mad:
I had a chef that created this special one night. Filet Mignon with Oysters, Smoked Gouda and Adobo sauce, I get sick even thinking about it now!
Ahh, a guy I worked with who put Tabasco on EVERYTHING! The last straw for me was when I saw him put it on a bagel with cream cheese:confused:
I know there's more, but I'm going to go cry now:rolleyes:
