I've just been watching an awesome episode on TV about some American who visited Chicago and ate what seems like a family meal for himself.
He went to Gino's East which is a pizza place in Chicago and ate a deep pan pizza which was 3 inches deep .. The bread dough weighed 2lbs alone .. Fucking hell.
Then went to Al's #1 Italian Beef and munched his way through a sandwich
And at Luckys sandwich place ate 3 of these to get his picture on the wall
So being in the UK and having a stomach the size of a baby gerbil .. Are all the portion sizes large in the USA?
I don't want to say that all Americans are fat but whilst the chap was dining in the above places, almost all of the customers were on the large side. Not bloody surprising when you see the portion sizes but what is America doing to reduce the amount of obese people?
I went out on Tuesday with some friends and for the first time i'd noticed that in the restaurant they had put the calorie content on the menus which was a good idea (i had starter and dessert only), is this common in America?
I am not trying to offend anyone but am genuinely curious.
I look forward to your responses.
