For most toppings this is A-OK (extra lettuce on that soft taco, por favor). If you try to pull something like ordering an old fashioned with extra sugar you're kind of a monster.

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

i highly doubt the cook at whatever chinese place lib7 is going to is going to be insulted. point of reference- i worked at a subway in highschool. some toppings such as tomatoes and onions were standard. i was never insulted if someone said "no tomatoes" or "no onions".

Why wouldn't you just order a Canadian bacon pizza? But yes it's still different, especially if you are ordering online and there's the option to omit a topping

so going through mcdonalds drive through and ordering a plain qp w/ cheese that causes the line to back up for three minutes because onions are standard on a qpc is ok, but asking for no onions in chicken friend rice at a kansas city chinese food place is not? i think your brain is broken.

I think his rule is really more like, if you risk hurting the feelings of someone who makes over $75k-ish a year, you should just eat the gross things that come in the dish by default.

of course it's different! McDonald's is set up to make topping substitutions for qpcs! Here's your options when you order on doordash



the chicken fried rice was probably pre-made in a large batch with chicken added after the fact and even if it was made to order onions are a critical part of the fried rice recipe

order white rice and chicken

there is also the aspect of being mindful of extra work you give someone making less

Also just wanted to point out you are advocating against ordering made to order onionless fried rice because it’s a “critical part of the dish,” while using as a counter example McDonalds’ online system which lets you order a quarter pounder with cheese without 1/4 pound beef and without cheese.

why would you think a family-run chinese restaurant wouldn't take pride in their work? Or do you think the work done at a Chinese restaurant is the equivalent of a McDonald's assembly line?

you don't think people at mcdonald's take pride in their work? also, do you really think a family-run chinese restaurant would rather have seven take his business elsewhere as opposed to just making some stupid fried rice without onions for him.  they are onions. it's fried rice. that family is running a business so they can pay a mortgage and car payments. will he get an eye roll? maybe, maybe not. but i guarantee they'd rather make it for him then have him go somewhere else which is what you recommended he do. we aren't talking about the french laundry or gary danko here.

I can't imagine how embarrassed I'd be telling a waiter to withhold a part of a dish without having a severe allergy.
