The “all you can eat” deal at this restaurant apparently does not include the most extreme of appetites, which one man says he found out the hard way.
A food blogger identified only has Mr. Kang was recently blacklisted from a diner in China after repeatedly eating obscene amounts of food at the venue, BBC reported.
On his first visit to Changsha City’s Handadi Seafood BBQ Buffet alone, Kang reportedly consumed over 3.3 pounds of pork feet, he told the Chinese news station Hunan TV, according to BBC.
On a subsequent visit, his hunger proved just as immense, and he ate some 8 pounds of prawns, he recalled. Still, the livestreamer believes that the restaurant is “discriminatory” for barring him for simply eating all he could at a restaurant that advertises itself as “all you can eat” — while those with lesser appetites are welcome.
“I can eat a lot — is that a fault?” he asked, noting that he ate all of the food he got, and nothing went to waste.
The restaurant owner, however, says that despite the name of the deal, the monetary loss of feeding Mr. Kang’s cost-effective equation-breaking hunger is simply not worth it.
“Every time he comes here, I lose a few hundred yuan,” the owner of the buffet told Hunan TV. “Even when he drinks soy milk, he can drink 20 or 30 bottles. When he eats the pork trotters, he consumes the whole tray of them. And for prawns, usually people use tongs to pick them up, he uses a tray to take them all.”
Mr. Kang at least is not the only one who the owner has decided to ban: All livestreamers are no longer allowed at the restaurant.
The story has become quite a sensation on Chinese social media, where it’s gone viral on the platform Weibo, BBC reported. Opinions vary widely — some pity the owner and others believe the restaurant does not deserve to call itself “all you can eat.”
