If we have notice we will do whatever we can to accommodate any dietary needs.
    Really ? I thought that was just in the USA. Us Aussies have more sense than that.

    I haven't had to deal with this much of fake allergies or preferences in US , like the vegetarians who just eat the fish despite the vegetarian tasting menu you prepped just for them or cucumber peel allergy ,but I had more ridiculous requests that I had to accommodate in US , at least here I get to say NO lot more easier and more often and without getting into trouble.

    How about: "Bearnaise without the tarragon" Hollandaise? "No, I like Bernaise but I'm allergic to tarragon"

    Customer: 'Where's the meat with my steak fries?'
    Server: '?'
    Customer: 'I thought they had steak inside them?'

    I have a few hamburgers listed on our casual restaurant's menu. The first one is a plain burger but lists the beef as "8 Ounces of Certified All Natural Angus Beef". The rest of the burgers are "specialty" burgers that just list the house made toppings. Like the "Greek Burger" with tomato-onion jam, feta cheese and cucumber slaw, or the "Mushroom-Swiss Burger" with balsamic roasted portobello and gruyere cheese, etc, etc. Stuff like that, you get the idea. Had a customer last month ask the server if the "specialty" burgers had meat in them since it wasnt written on the menu. Um, how did you live this long?
