Is that the portion sizes over there are incredibly big. I was in NYC just a couple of months ago and went to a nice restaurant on the Upper East Side. It was me and a couple girlfriends of mine, mixed with Americans and other Europeans. When our food came, I was immediately shocked by the size of the serving. It was way too big and so I cut everything in about half, which my American friends thought was silly. I did not understand how they were able to eat the whole meal and then their whole dessert when I was full off of just half my meal and half my dessert.
Now I'm not bashing Americans, simply an observation, but you guys do have really big food portions (and this only applies to restaurants and fast food places, obviously).
