When it comes to restaurant favourites that you can get just about anywhere and that we’ll order any time, no matter which place we’re eating at, friend pickles really take the cake for us! There’s just something about the tangy taste of the pickle in contrast to the batter that makes our tummies happy, especially if there’s a sauce to dip them in as we eat as well! Of course, one of our other favourite things is when we get to try making our favourite restaurant dishes at home.
