17 Unfamiliar Restaurants
I made a list of 100 things I should do that scare me. In 2020, I plan to complete all 100.
Humans tend to be creatures of habit. During the month of February, I made it my goal not to eat a meal at a restaurant I had ever been to before.
I did end up having some appetizers and drinks at places I’d been to, and I did eat at a 24-hour diner I frequent because they don’t care if I bring my laptop and write (I wanted a place to write, and didn’t know where else to go that would give me that freedom at odd hours). So technically, I guess I didn't completely succeed, but I'm still counting it, because I still faced it.
Other than that, I ended up trying 2 new breakfast places, a sandwich shop, a Thai restaurant, 2 Indian restaurants, and a nice barbecue place.
Seriously. Do this. There are still SO many more places I haven’t tried, and now I really want to!
Level 1 fear, though I should probably have upgraded it, because it wasn’t just fear of unknown—it was hugely inconvenient to restrict myself in this way.
