Usually there is a salt container on the cafe table, as well as a pepper container. Sometimes is you're in a pizza shop the also have garlic powder and oregano chips!
In Львів and Харків you would be surprised to find your table lacking in appropriate accompaniments.
is this used in the same way "pass the salt" is in english? or is it just a weird sentence?
Can I say "будь ласка" even to a person I don't know? I mean, is it formal or informace state?
From what I’ve seen, it’s fine for both formal and informal situations.
