Looks like America is Not the Only "Offender"

This photo below is Not Photoshopped!
It's the Waldgeist Restaurant in Hofheim, Germany.
I don't wanna' hear anymore about America being
the worst country for outrageous portions

Mollyanne - you're confusing restaurants that make sensationally huge portions of food for the publicity factor with normal restaurants that just serve larger than necessary portions.

There's a BIG difference between the two.

Not really, Breezy . I understood the difference when I posted the outrageous restaurant portions at the Hofheim Germany restaurant. Afterall, the title of the thread is "Outrageous Restaurant Portions" so it was on-topic...there is no reference in the title to the reasoning, be it publicity or otherwise. The sentence about America with the LOL smiley face was in jest...thus the LOL smiley face .
I was just having some fun

The "Georgbraeu Brauhaus" Restaurant is one of many in Berlin Germany with HUGE portions according to a traveler on the "trip advisor" website. Here's a pic of one of their dishes:

Thank you, kayelle. I've enjoyed everyone's input...including your heartwarming story that took place in Argentina (post#82). That visual you described outside the cafe is still on my mind and heart.

OH I used to live right by Carmines in Chicago and it was amazing. They had a piano player on Fridays and that was the spot I would love to go too. And of course I LOVED the amazing food.

I don't think that's the same Carmine's that's in New York. The portions at the one in new York may be copious, but the food is just "meh," nothing to write home about.
