5 Important Reasons to Try New Restaurants and Stop Being a Picky Eater

The weekend comes, you start planning the activities with your family and friends, and suddenly you realize that you always eat at the same restaurants. Or perhaps you avoid a food group at all costs even though you haven't tried it. And now you are avoiding all culinary adventures because you’re convinced you won't like whatever new is on your plate.


You probably keep saying Abu Dhabi doesn't have enough options and drive to Dubai to eat the same burger. When the truth is there are always new and exciting restaurants, bringing new flavors and concepts, opening up in the capital.

So why is it important to try new food:

1 - You expand your options.

Think about it this way, when you’re married, you have one single option, but when you are single, you are still meeting new people and checking their personalities and behaviors. So don’t marry food, keep your options open. The more you have in front of you, the more experiences you will have.

2 - You can find new type of food that excites you.

Sometimes you see strange food mixes like chocolate with mint, and you think you will never try it because it just sounds so abnormal. But you never know what type of mixes you will like. For instance, have you tried banana or avocado with rice? (yes, it is a thing in Latin America). So how will you know if you like it or not if don’t give it a try?

3 - You get more nutrients.

The more color in your life, the happier you are. The same applies to food, the more variety in your diet, the more sources of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients your body will get.

4 - You become more receptive to adventures.
