These 15 chefs reveal the stupidest orders they’ve ever heard and we simply can’t stop laughing at some of the things we’ve read. Vegetable salmon, people? Seriously? Are you a human from Planet Earth?

RAS1187: Order for well done burger. Not unusual, but the guest told the server, “My doctor told me I can’t have any red meat” and was dead serious.
