This article provides helpful tips for how to eat on social occasions, whether it is birthday parties, business lunch/ dinner, Friday dinner, family/ friends getting together, etc.
Regarding the bread basket, it is the signature bread of the restaurant, having a palm-size slice is no big deal – but just one palm-size slice, since you may also want to try or “have to” eat the desserts to finish the meal.
Even though high-protein foods such as fish, shrimps, and poultry are good choice for eating out, the way they are cooked and the portion size can be tricky: eating a greasily grilled half-chicken is completely different from the palm-size one that is light grilled.
Desserts and drinks are the evilest roles for social eating. Knowing how much to eat or drink is still different from doing. Always a glass of wine/ a standard drink of spirits, or two spoons of shared desserts. Numbers are helpful to manage your calorie intake.
