The thread about American over-sized portions got me thinking about these two restaurants that always bug me about UNDER-sized portions. Obviously, it doesn't bug me enough to stop eating there.
One is a rib place. This is actually Logan's Roadhouse, a chain, that my dd likes (for the peanut shells on the floor) and we indulge her with occasionally. They put "Half-rack of Baby-back Ribs" on their menu, then when served, it's always either 3 or 4 bones. For a full rack, it's always 7 bones. We get a pig slaughtered every other year and a full rack of ribs is actually 13 or 14 ribs. How can they put that in their menu and then not serve an actual portion? Isn't that illegal?
The other is a local steakhouse. We like their food, in general. However, if you want to substitute their mixed veg medley with asparagus, they will give you 3 large and WOODY spears, then up-charge $2.99 for the asparagus. You can maybe eat the tips and that's about it. Tiny portion, mostly inedible, charged an extra $3.
Anybody else find such things where you eat?
