California is no exception to the American rule that fast food feasting reigns. However, one thing I have personally noticed is that it definitely seems that enormous portion sizes and excess are not ‘the norm’ in the manner they still were when I travelled to the USA for the first time in 2008. That, of course, was just weeks after the Lehmann Brother’s collapse, and at the very beginning of this now historically woeful economic time of global austerity we are all living in.
For now, this little Chinese and my ‘wee’ stomach were very sufficiently satisfied. It’s not quite ‘Ballymoney’s finest.’ The sunshine, however, and ability to sit outside to eat makes up for that!
