What do the kitchen mean?

To cut the waffle I have two questions which have confused me over service.

When the kitchen receives an order cheque they say something like "crussan" when repeating the order out loud. What is this word and what does it mean?


When reading out the the check they will translate N/A or not having anything to "something....rien". I know rien means nothing but can anyone tell me what the actual term is.

I would go to the kitchen and ask but they'd put me in the cooker and serve me up. Probably.

Thank you to all in advance!

I've got 38 years in the business and I have no idea what you're asking?

Thanks for replying. I'll try and explain better.

If there are two covers and one person isn't having any... I would write their starters as

1x n/a

The kitchen then shout
One soup
One ??? ??? rien
What would that sentence be? Is it bon a rien or something similar?
