2. Skip Fancy Desserts, Get Snacks Instead
Table service restaurants have some amazing desserts, don’t get me wrong. I go to Sanaa (almost) entirely for the Tanzanian Chocolate Mousse. But sometimes you don’t want dessert immediately after eating a big entree. In that case, skip dessert at the table, and instead grab a Mickey bar or giant cookie later in the evening, perhaps to munch on while waiting for fireworks. Or maybe forgo the sweet route and opt for popcorn, or late night mac and cheese!
