White Spot: Tea (Strawberry Milkshake) for Two

Dee and I are now recognized at the local White Spot (S.W. Marine Drive and Oak, Vancouver BC). Ever since I had a Rubik's Cube and solved it for our waitress, she immediately noticed us, greeting us with, "Where's your Rubik's Cube?" While it may not be a place where everybody knows our names, they've gone the extra mile and definitely earned their tip for the day.

As a youngish couple of people who are making way too little money for our education and job experience, it never hurts to save a few bucks here and there, and thankfully, White Spot's portions are fairly adequate (either that, or we don't eat a lot). So, last Sunday was spent at the local White Spot, ordering one order of Mushroom Prosciutto Cannelloni, one strawberry milkshake, and one ginger ale, with the intent of sharing everything (okay, not the ginger ale, because that comes with free refills and they're technically not supposed to allow that).

Typically, one would expect that they would just give us the one dish and then a couple of shared plates. In this case, they really went the extra mile and went to the trouble of splitting everything. As in, equally portioned plates, right down to the side Caesar salad and garlic bread (as a result, we probably ended up with slightly more). They even split the milkshake in half, instead of giving us the milkshake in a glass plus the metal mixing cup.

Who does this anymore?

Oh, and the food was pretty good too.
