    Do you always order the same few things?

    I noticed something about myself. Once I know I like something at a food place, I seldom try anything new. I ate my burgers from McD's and Burger King the same way for years, like up until I was 21 actually. Just ketchup and picked. I tried the quarter pounder from McD's when I was 21 and I ended up liking it. Not a fan of the big mac though. I still revert back to eating burgers from places the same though, only recently having added onions to the pickle and ketchup combo. Never been big on cheese or anything else on a burger. I have stopped going to a lot of these places though since the quality has just gone downhill big time for most of them. I don't go to Burger King at all and after being given a pink burger from McD's, I will never eat a burger there again so I only get nuggets and fries. I will get the sausage biscuit from time to time if I happen to be there during breakfast hours though. I'll stop rambling though lol

    TLDR: I eat the same things from fast food and general restaurants, hardly ever trying anything new.

    Do you always stick to what you know you'll like or are you more willing to try new things?

    Oh my god yes. I used to go to this one fish & chips shop pretty regularly, especially after a few drinks. And it got to the point that if I asked for a burger the guys working there would ask if I wanted "The usual" and would make it the way I liked it. This used to happen at subway too when I used to go there religiously after work. I guess once I order a combo that I absolutely love then I'll stick with it for the long term.

    I always order the same things from Subway too. I only ever get one of two things and never change anything about them. I feel like part of me doesn't want to try new things because I don't want to be disappointed. I get Starbucks once a week and always get a caramel frapp. They have so many different ones now that I have never tried that I would probably enjoy but I can't bring myself to get anything else. lol

    I tend to be the same. You name any restaurant or fast food joint, I will tell you exactly what I'll get there. I usually get the same thing due to a combination of never %100 growing out of my picky eater phase and also this weird thought that I get which is "Well, not sure when the next time I'll have this again so I better savor it". There is an exception in this hot dog place across the street where I alternate between one week having coneys and the other week having their gyros but beyond that, I stick to what I'm comfortable with.

    Most of the time, yes. Sometimes I'd try new things though.

    I do wonder if people who tend to do this tend to not go out of their comfort zone. I never have been one to take big risks or try new things, well, not since I was a kid anyways. I think when I was younger I was more willing to do things that could get me hurt or in trouble but now I just want to be left alone in my own bubble. lol

    I try different things most times until I've completed most of the menu. At that point I'll routinely order my favorite.

    I'm quite the picky eater so I don't like too many things compared to other people, so yes with most restaurants there are only a few different dishes I may order. There are a few certain places though that I'd be happy to order the entire menu.

    Within reason? I order things I am familiar with, allowing variations.

    I'm not going to order something I have absolutely no fucking idea about, however.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"
