Food blogger banned from all-you-can-eat buffet because of the amount he ate
A man was banned from a barbecue buffet restaurant in Changsha City, China for eating a huge amount of food, even though the company advertises itself as “all you can eat.”
According to New York Post, the food blogger and live streamer known as Mr. Kang is now blacklisted at Handadi Seafood BBQ Buffet. “I can eat a lot, is that a fault? He asked after finding out he was banned from the restaurant.
On his first time at the buffet, he reportedly ate over 3.3 pounds of pig’s trotters. On another visit, he told Hunan TV that he had eaten eight pounds of shrimp. Either way, Kang thinks Handadi is “discriminating” by forbidding him to eat anything he can, as the place promotes. He also noted that he had not wasted any food.
The restaurant owner says he lost money feeding Kang. “Every time he comes here, I lose a few hundred yuan,” the owner told Hunan TV. “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, people usually use tongs to pick them up, he uses a tray to pick them all up.
Now the owner has also decided to blacklist all livestreamers. The move follows China’s decision to start restricting food influencers last year, with the government even seeking a massive ban on such videos in the country.
