Can somebody settle this…?

Is choosing the same restaurant, and ordering the same dish every time at said restaurant = nan kid behaviour?

nah, i did it at the belvedere on hanger lane and did it once a week for about ten years.
(minestrone soup and spag bol.)
people used to proper take the piss (even the owners and staff) but it was the best soup and spag ive ever had, so i couldnt chose anything else cos i loved it so much. (did try a couple of times to have somethig else, but didnt enjoy it as much, so whats the point)
also always have 'katsu curry' everytime i go to wagas as well. (do fuck about with the starters though)

No, but I have an annoying mate who always orders the same thing as me when out anywhere. Even when I change my mind, he fucking changes his. Gets on my tits.

Come to think of it, he’s always got a paper bag of mints on him. Thought it was a scottish thing, but maybe not.

Of course it is.
It's "sticking with what they know". Just like why they always order korma/ Only order a big mac (take out all salad) etc, margeretta pizza.
My nan had a routine with everything and food had to be the same every week\month.
Roast on Sundays, fish on Fridays, ham sandwich at sat lunch time.

Surely it depends a bit on the context? Having a favourite restaurant and a favourite dish at said restaurant isn't automatically nan kid.

If they've never tried anything else at the restaurant then that's a bit weird. But after trying other things if you really like something, why order something else that's going to be second best?

Ok, so a couple of my mates are definitely the latter. Try to convince them everytime we go out to eat to try something different, but we always end up in Nando's or Hare and Tortoise.

Their excuse is: food means too much to me, I don't want to try something new and discover it's shit, cos then I'll feel like I just wasted a meal"

haha then going to nandoes. biggest waste of money on food, dry chicken in a bun. woo hoo.

i always actually discussing whether nandoes is for nan kids with a housemate the other day, came to the conclusion that it is only if you get lemon and herb chicken burger
