The nightly special side dishes like salads or slaws that might have bits of sashimi thrown into it should be avoided at all costs. Those bits are most of the times leftovers of the fish which the restaurants try to use up. If you really want to eat sashimi, then go to the restaurant earlier so that you can be served the dish with fresher ingredients. You can even choose to order soups instead.

3The “Secret Menu” at Starbucks

At Starbucks order everything else except the ones off the “Secret Menu” simply because it doesn’t exist. First, know your base drinks and the modifications before ordering. So it’s really up to you as to how you order your captain crunch Frapuccino, snickerdoodle, or Nutella. By simply saying the name you are leaving it up to the barista to come up with what’s in the drink and it may not be the same barista who was on shift last time you ordered it there.

4Chicken fingers or nuggets

Chicken fingers or nuggets are simply a waste product as it is mainly leftover chicken covered in batter and fried in oil which you won’t even know how many times have already been used. In reality, you would just be ordering low-quality meat.
