Restaurants: 9 Shocking Foods You Must NOT Order

2. Iceberg lettuce

You might think that ordering some salad that contains plenty of iceberg lettuce will make up for the yummy, greasy, but unhealthy food you might have on your plate, but that won’t do the trick.

This salad is typically very affordable, but the majority of dinners jack up the price by at least 5 times. Iceberg lettuce contains roughly 90% water, and the worst part of all this is that its crevices, edges, and corners are ideal hiding places for bacteria.

I was once at a restaurant with a friend, and we ordered some salads, thinking that they’d be fresh, crunchy, and perfect for a hot day in summer. While my friend was looking for the perfect bite, she noticed that there was a small worm on a piece of lettuce.

We couldn’t eat anymore, and if I’m being honest, that was the last time I ate a salad from a restaurant. Of course, these places are busy and crowded, and the staff doesn’t have time to look at every single piece of lettuce twice, so they can notice any worm or small bug on it.

But from that moment on, I made sure that I made my salads myself and double-checked each piece of iceberg lettuce, so I wouldn’t have any surprises.

  1. Your research to me is very educational and great information. I am surprised and I will be more apt with any foods, therefore, I may start cooking again. Thanks so very much for your articles.

  2. This is very enlightening! I seldom go out to eat for breakfast but now I know to order an omelette rather than scrambled eggs with my pancakes. At home I always drink water without ice. Now I know to ask for water or drinks without ice. Actually the last time I had iced tea at a popular don’t shop, I became sick and haven’t had iced tea since!

  3. I once went out to lunch with friends, when I was very, very poor, so I ordered a “salad” that was just a slice of a head of iceberg lettuce with dressing on it. It was the only thing 8bate and it gave me horrible food poisoning. A couple of hours after I ate it, I was vomiting and having explosive diarrhea AT THE SAME TIME. I haven’t eaten iceberg lettuce since.

  4. I typically don’t eat. I always loves to do my own cooking. Only once in a million we might eat out, but I’m really hates to eat out, for people don’t even really look at their spoons plates, fork nor knife in front of them. Not even the glas of water nor glass of whatever they’re drinking in those dirty dishes. I something really think about all the in them and can imagine inside where they’re doing all this . I for most of the part take my ultility. I don’t eat nor any anything. Have to see how clean it looks, and least do I order breakfast.Yuck. Now I go less more after reading this.

  5. OH MY GOD, I never stop to think about unhealthy foods that were mentioned in this warning, I knew canned (tin canned ) foods were not good for the body. I do occasionally buy Albacore Tuna. I love Oysters on the Half Shell. Thank you for this very vital data.

  6. Been following this method for years. Especially the meatloaf and burger rule. You never know what’s in that meat. And the ice. I will also add don’t aske for lemon or limes in your water either
