Recently my sister had her home coming, welcome home Lynne! We would have loved to be home, but it was too far to go. One place that makes me feel at home that is only 20 min away is an American themed restaurant called Baby Back, their specialty is ribs. It's a fun place that really makes me feel that I am in America, well except the drinks. That brings me to the second part in our Americans are from Mars, Europeans are from Venus blog series. I'll save the alcohol culture for another blog post, for this blog I wanted to focus on non-alcoholic drinks at restaurant.
1. They do not serve tap water for free in Europe. At Baby Back and almost every place they make you pay for bottled water. We chose the milk shake and a Fanta which was on sale.
2. The drink sizes are crazy small. This is a .25 liter Fanta. It was on sale for 1 euro, normally 1.70. What ever happened to super size me and free refills?!
3. Milk shakes are not made with milk. :( They are made with juice and ice cream. They are still good, but a bit on the runny side.
