Enfant Terrible and I were having dinner at "our" banana leaf restaurant when he mooted the idea of ordering something other than banana leaf rice, roti sardin or tosei on our next visit.

"What would you order?"

He looked around to make sure no one was eavesdropping, then said, "Maybe nasi goreng."

Needless to say, I was aghast.

"Why would you order nasi goreng at a banana leaf restaurant???"

"They have it here right?" he said. "We've never tried it."

"You don't order nasi goreng at an Indian restaurant*, okay? We'll have the manager out in minutes to ask us what's wrong if you do!"

Has your dinner companion ever made such an outrageous suggestion before? What out-of-the-ordinary meal would you order at your regular haunt?

* Honestly, it's never occurred to me to do so before.
