But It Wouldn't Be Delicious...

At a recent dinner out with friends, a fellow vegetarian and I wanted some sushi after noticing regular sushi on the menu. We asked our waitress if it would be possible to get veggie sushi - perhaps avocado. The waitress said she would check, and came back in a few moments to tell us that the chef agreed to do it, but he wanted to make sure we knew that it wouldn't be delicious, and questioned whether we still wanted to order it. This wasn't the first time either of us had heard this disclaimer after a request to have meat or seafood removed from a dish, but I still find it amusing every single time. And the chef was wrong, it was indeed delicious!
