If you have the option to order a family platter of anything, you should. If the family is a qualifier then tell them you have a family, but they are not with you. When you order a family platter ask if it’s a family of pigs you are eating or is the quantity meant to be consumed by a family. That’s an important piece of information, otherwise, you may eat too much.
Also, everyone needs a family. That title was misleading.
