- A current Slovak survey added some background to a discussion on SK-W
quite a while back about someone's disappointment when they wanted to
give a treat to their Slovak hosts by hauling them out to a restaurant
while the Slovaks were substantially less than eager to go. On
average, an American dines out close to 3 times a week.
By contrast, the survey showed that about 25% Slovaks never want to
eat out, about 37% eat out several times a year (often only out of
necessity when on vacation), ca. 33% eat out about once a month or
more, and only about 5% eat out daily, many as part of their
employer's subsidized meal plan.
