A customer at an “extremely fancy” restaurant has been mocked after requesting 16 adjustments be made to their order.
The diner fast became the crux of hundreds of jokes after a receipt of the customer’s extensive list of changes to a simple beef burger was shared to Twitter.
A woman who claimed to be a friend of the chef at the ritzy New York restaurant tweeted evidence of the May 27 order on Tuesday morning (local time).
“My friend is the chef at an extremely fancy NYC restaurant and this is an order he received today,” she wrote.
The invoice showed the customer had stressed there was to be absolutely no filling inside the burger bun, aside from the beef patty, because it was for a dog.
They initially specified the salad was to be served on the side, and the beef to be cooked medium rare with no cheese on top.
The detail continued: “No salt, no oil, no seasoning, no pepper. Absolutely plain, no toppings, no garnishes.”
“No bacon, no pickles, no onion, no bread, no lettuce.
“No side salad.”
At the bottom, the customer reiterated their request: “Just a plain patty – this is for a dog.”
Social media users held nothing back in their replies to the tweet.
“I’m so confused. Wouldn’t it just be easier to just ... Cook it yourself,” one said.
“Given that any dog would cheerfully eat half a rotting deer carcass then roll around in it, this seems a bit fussy,” another claimed.
One man said he didn’t understand the point of the fussy order.
“Mine would eat a fancy NYC restaurant burger or her own poop with equal cheer and gusto,” he said.
Someone else joked the dog may have been placing the order for itself.
“Wait – is the dog by themselves? Only one guest listed,” they wrote.
