Ordering Food Quotes

"The same intelligence is required to marshal an army in battle and to order a good dinner. The first must be as formidable as possible, the second as pleasant as possible, to the participants."

Aemilius Paulus, conqueror of Persia
quoted by Plutarch.


"So in our pride we ordered for breakfast, an omelet, toast and coffee and what has just arrived is a tomato salad with onions, a dish of pickles, a big slice of watermelon and two bottles of cream soda."

John Steinbeck, while traveling in Russia


“Never order food in excess of your body weight.”

Erma Bombeck (1927-1996)
