What if a resteraunt has reuse components on menus instead of complet food items? In that case we select these components and ask the waiter to make a dish out of these readymade components. and we end up tasting our own customizable and personalized menu..!!

       Mongolian Barbecue: salad bar meets stir fry. You pick your items, hand them over, and they get cooked.

       Mixing and matching elements of different dishes is called "substitution" in the restaurant business, and most allow it, though some will charge extra.   

       Alternatively, dine at one of those many fine restaurants where each item is listed separately in the first place. Nothing new here. [marked-for-deletion] consumer advice, methinks.

       I'll take carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, a bit of sodium, some chlorine, and a smattering of potassium and iron, thanks.

       L.A. tap water?   

       I'll have the pork, pound cake, and ketchup. And it better be good.

       I disagree with the MFD call on this idea. By "components" I am assuming the author is not referring to stand-alone ingredients such as a Mongolian BBQ offers but sub-assemblies of entrees.   

       I think the idea substantially different from substitution primarily because the components are designed with the intent of being mixed and matched and are listed as such on a menu.
