In that case (and I do this Regularly) I order what I want to eat (a safe dish) and also a new one, then we would try this between us, and all being well, it`ll be a New Favorite (and that`s happened also).
so yes, I do buy an Extra portion of something new often.
and occasionally I see something on someone elses plate while waiting for the food and ask for some of that too :)
