Why You Should Order Appetizers Before Lunch or Dinner, Honolulu, Hawaii

When you go out to a restaurant with friends and family, you don’t need to wait for the main course to start enjoying a great meal. From hot wings to savory soups, appetizers make any lunch or dinner more satisfying and enjoyable. Here are a few reasons why you should order shareable starters. 

4 Reasons to Start Your Lunch or Dinner With Appetizers

1. Satiate Your Appetite

Entrees sometimes take a while to get to the table, especially if you’re with a large party. Order a round of appetizers to hold everyone over until the main courses arrive. Starters are usually quick to prepare, so order an additional round for particularly large or hungry crowds. 

2. Share With Groups

Appetizers are perfect for splitting with friends and family since they’re typically bite-sized or finger foods. Small plates also make great conversation starters at the beginning of lunch or dinner.

3. Enjoy Variety

lunchAppetizers allow everyone at the table to taste different dishes. Many restaurants offer sampler plates that feature customer favorites. For example, you might enjoy dishes as diverse as barbecue meatballs and deviled eggs at the same time.

4. Create Less Waste

When you’re unsure about whether you’ll like a particular item, order it as an appetizer to share with your party. Even if it doesn’t suit your particular palate, someone else at your table will likely enjoy it, so you all can fill up your stomachs and create less food waste.
