When it comes to food, things basically arrive to the table overwhelmingly large.
Simply put, their 'small' is as good as a 'medium' or even 'large' by our Malaysian standards. A typical 'one-person' portion here would be almost impossible to finish for most of us. Imagine, we are now used to ordering 'one-rice' takeaway but shared between 3 people, with some left-overs still .....
The fast food industry is huge. For some joints, a la carte is not widely provided as set meals (+soft drink + fries) are the norm, which start at 10SR. Drinks are cheap though, canned softies are going for 1SR a piece. So it is far too easy to become obese here!
Just to prove a point that you should check your food before eating. Some imported (and even some locally-made) foods bear the dreaded and dodgy 476 and E471 emulisifiers here... So the question is, boleh makan ke tak ni?! Where is JAKIM?!! Please send 6 people over... :^P
