Hi, I want to know whether it is needed or proper to say ‘I’ll have lobster bisque with puff pastry (topping).’ when I order it.

I googled it, some with the word topping, some just say ‘with puff pastry’. Thanks

    When you order it? If you’re in a restaurant, you’ll be ordering whatever exact dish is listed on the menu. You don’t need to describe it in detail. You just need to make it clear which menu item you mean.

    In any other scenario, if you’re just describing the dish, the word “topping” is optional. Pastry would hardly be anywhere but on the top! ;)
