KC- Which restaurants serve regular sized portions?

I know that most of us want the most bang for our buck, and the more, the better.

However, I'm looking for spots in the KC metro area or Lawrence that serve more regular portions. By that I mean they serve an amount of food one person would eat, rather than the supersized portions found at most places.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

  1. I found the portions at Jen Jen's, a Chinese restaurant at 9066 Metcalf in OP to be very reasonable.

    Jen Jen's Chinese Restaurant
    9066 Metcalf Ave, Overland Park, KS 66212

    1. My husband asked if this was a trick question! ;-) A lot of times we end up sharing a dish to counteract large portion sizes. So far, we've though of Pangea, 1924 Main, and Pachamama's.

      Pangea Cafe & Market
      900 W 39th St, Kansas City, MO 64111

      1924 Main
      1924 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64108

      800 New hampshire, Lawrence, KS 66047

      1. The portions at Aixois are just right.

        1. Andre's has a very good portion size. Don't ask about the macronutrient breakdown though. :)

          1. Bella 39 has a regular size protion menu
