Is this normal: I ordered a partridge at a restaurant and literally there was nothing but a ribcage and teaspoon of meat on the bird?

I asked because my boyfriend thinks that is normal, since partridge is a small bird

... and I think it was very cheeky for the price we paid. (There was nothing else on the plate.)

Thanks :)

  • If it was some upscale bistro-type restaurant then yeah, I'd say that's normal. If it was a more casual dining, or only mild-ly fancy then that seems weird.

  • There's not that much on a partridge. I can imagine it wasn't cheap either.

    Take solace, though - there are a lot of other gamebirds that are even smaller, and probably in a restaurant cost a lot more per ounce, lol

    • Lol yes it wasn't cheap and was a mains... I was very confused what I was supposed to do with it

  • I probably wouldn't order partridge as the average weight of the bird is only 275 g or around 9 oz.! So by the time it's trimmed, cooked with any fat rendered and you take the meat from the carcass, there's only a few ounces of meat to eat although one is supposed to feed one person. Did you not order any sides?
