Of course this is kinda case by case. Name the restaurant (or if it's homemade) and the dish and the item you want omitted and I will tell you how much of a monster you are

In a restaurant setting the most common for me would be onions in fried rice or cashew chicken or whatever

I sometimes wonder if the people who can eat everything actually even enjoy food or if it's all just some tasteless vehicle for energy.
I don't order things I don't like

I like fried rice though and some places put in onions and some places don't. I don't like onions.

Order from places that don't put onions in. I don't know why fried rice wouldn't have onions but if it was designed to not have onions it would be way better than one designed to have onions that doesn't

It seems to be pretty selfish to refuse to go to a restaurant with other people over something as trivial as onions that are easily picked out of fried rice

Carry out/delivery: remove onions like a child, don't request no onions

Eating in: don't go

If you request "no onions" you are giving the cook extra work to get a worse dish. If you pick out the onions in the restaurant you are insulting the cook. Do it at home or order something different in the restaurant

Also I bet you eat onions all the time and don't realize it

Like I said, it's trivial to me to remove them myself so personally I don't make those kinds of requests because it is more work. Lol at a cook being insulted for removing chunks of onions, maybe they should consider a different line of work that has less subjectivity.

That's not very considerate

I just hope the cook can find some comfort in the fact that I thought the onion free version is delicious

Eating things you don't like is essential to appreciate what you do like

There are so many more flavors than just the good ones. If you pass on all the other ones you are seriously missing out on life

Sometimes you miss an onion and you feel the crunch when you chew and then your whole mouth is filled with onion juice and it doesn't go away for an hour (#petpeeve). It definitely makes me appreciate the times I didn't miss an onion.

i’d say probably 95% of my food orders have some sort of ingredient omission and or substitute, or cooking instructions


Cheesy Mustache QB might make an appearance.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.
