Clean your plate - or else

My Dad, who is a big believer in cleaning your plate, will like this story. A chef and restaurant owner in Australia demands her patrons clean their plate or else!
Chef Yukako Ichikawa has introduced a 30 percent discount for diners who eat all the food they have ordered at Wafu, her 30-seat restaurant in the Sydney suburb of Surry Hills, that describes itself as "guilty free Japanese cuisine." [...]

This list includes finishing all dishes ordered. The chef and her staff also tell people who don't clear their plates to choose another restaurant next time.

"Finishing your meal requires that everything is eaten except lemon slices, gari (sushi ginger) and wasabi," says the menu.

"Please also note that vegetables and salad on the side are NOT decorations ; they are part of the meal too."
Makes the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld look like a sweetheart. To be fair though, the chef is commited to sustainable living and not wasting food is a big part of her philosophy. You have to give her credit for being willing to lose customers in order to stick her principles. [graphic]

No That is stupid.
Start with small portions and add free top ups.

Well, now we know what happened to at least one of those starving children in Asia - she became the sushi nazi! :)

But Kees, I think she already probably gives small portions since it sounds like frou frou restaurant. She's just pissed because people don't eat their veggies and stuff.
