Saviour Fare: "Where I find that "lemonade" is Sprite" Le Bistro Savoir Faire Tip by grandmaR
Le Bistro Savoir Faire, London: 3 reviews and 2 photos
After we finished at the British Museum, I didn't want to eat an the restaurants right next to the museum, so we wandered over to New Oxford Street, and went to Savoire Faire
Favorite Dish: I had croque monsieur, and Bob had a steak sandwich. I found at this time that to the English, lemonade means Sprite. This was one difference between American English and English English that I had a hard time accepting. It seemed really perverse to me to call something lemonade that wasn't. It wasn't even as though the English didn't HAVE lemonade.
Later I discovered that I could get a non-carbonated, non-caffine non-bottled-water something to drink by asking for squash which is a sweetened juice concentrate. And sometimes a bartender would give me canned pineapple or some other type juice - a very small can, but regular juice.
The lunch was £13.20 (which turned up on my credit card as $20.99).
