Restaurant Charges Customers For Not Finishing Their Meals
A restaurant in Japan charges you for not leaving your plate empty.
On its menu, Hachikyo clearly states that failure to consume every last bit of their signature dish — a bowl of rice topped with all-you-can-eat salmon roe — will result in a surcharge which will be donated to the fishermen who made the food possible…
Midori Yokoyama goes on to note that the “tsukko meshi” will set you back about 1,890 yen (~$20), but that it is well worth it.
For the record, a waitress told Yokoyama that “hardly anyone leaves their tsukko meshi unfinished.”
