That’s what I was told I would have to do or I would have to pay for the food I did not eat. Crazy right. So I went out to this restaurant in Manila and the food was ok. The dish had a lot of rice so I did not eat all of it. Once I was ready to pay, the waitress came over and said we have to charge you for another plate since you did not eat everything. Y’all know I was not down with that. I told Iher that I did not want it and she said the sign says no left overs. I did not see that sign before they sat me and I sure as hell did not know what that meant. So we discussed it a little more and she sought her manager out who said just eat the rice and we won’t charge you extra. That’s when I was like let me reiterate no! Finally after 10 minutes of discussion I paid for my one meal and rolled. Crazyest thing I have ever experienced.
