Differences in dining between Sweden and the U.S.

Tips for travelers going either way.

Sweden:

Going to dinner takes 3 hours.  I didn’t believe it either, but it’s true.
The dining area of most restaurants is the same size as my living room.
Your food may be cheaper than your drink.
Sip slowly – your drink will be smaller than your hand.  No refills!

U.S.
Going to dinner takes an hour.  We have movies to catch and the restaurants need to herd in the next round.
The dining area of most restaurants consists of many booths where we can all hide.  We do not share tables.
Food and drinks are pretty cheap.  This is why we have an obesity problem.
A small drink order comes with unlimited refills.  I’ve never understood why people pay for larger.
