Man banned from all you can eat buffet for overeating
A food streamer claimed that a BBQ Buffet restaurant had banned him for taking advantage of their offers.
The man, known only as Mr. Kang, claims that Changsha’s Handadi Seafood BBQ Buffet restaurant “discriminated” against him after eating 5.5 kg of food during several visits.
The man ate 1.5 kg of pig’s trotters during his first binge and 3.5-4 kg of shrimp on another occasion.
No matter what you think of as “all you can eat,” those are impressive numbers.
According to the BBC, the man argued that he had not wasted any food and said he should not be punished for his impressive appetite.
“I can eat a lot – is that a fault? ” he said. No sir, this is absolutely not the case.
The restaurant owner explained that Mr. Kang was detrimental to his results, claiming that he lost “a few hundred yuan” every time the man visited.
“Even when he drinks soy milk, he can drink 20 or 30 bottles. When he eats the pig’s trotters, he consumes the whole tray. And for shrimp, usually people use tongs to pick them up, he uses a tray to take all of them, ”they said.
A tray. To take them all. Unbelievable.
The restaurant banned live streamers, but after going viral on Weibo, the story drew widespread criticism.
Some said the all-you-can-eat restaurant should lose that title if it can’t really offer an endless supply, while others saw the restaurant owner’s point and said the man is taking advantage.
The news comes as President Xi Jinping urged citizens to “fight food waste,” over concerns over food shortages and considered banning eating influencer videos to deter the binge.
Whether you consider almost 6kg of meat and seafood to be excessive or not, there’s no denying that that’s a lot of food. Imagine what he could do in a Pizza Hut restaurant.
