Why randomly picking food from a menu in a foreign language doesn’t always pay off…

When you don't speak the language that the menu is written in it's nothing unusual to just point at a random dish and hope for the best.

Lesson learnt, I now know that I am not a fan of raw minced beef, known locally as tartare de boeuf….

Better luck next time!

    I randomly pick off non-english menus all the time and yes there has been some fails! I quite like Steak Tartare though – when it’s done right it can be very good (if you don’t mind raw meat!)

    Haha! It definitely pushes the boundaries of your taste buds sometimes and can occasionally surprise you with a new favourite. Did you get far through the dish?!

      Absolutely-I have had many great dishes this way, but sometimes u will get one u don’t like I guess… I ate the chips from the dinner and the waiter laughed to see I had left the entire steak tartare! Ha ha
