I live near a Italian restaurant that serves great food in huge portions. Usually, I find the greater the portions the more quality suffers. But, not at this place. Yet, something always seems lacking.
Then it dawned on me. When I am served such large portions I automaticly rush to finish the meal, which I can never do in this restaurant. I tend to approach large meals as a challange instead of slowly enjoying them like I do in most normal portion restaurants.
I discovered this the other day while eating at an "all you can eat" Chinese buffet. I was racing to eat like someone was about to take my plate away.
Does anyone ever experience the same thing?
