It's a conundrum that’s long challenged gluttons and hard-up students.

But now a scientist claims he has worked out how to truly make the most of a buffet bar – by piling food into a 3ft-high tower.

Unfortunately, while it allows you to eat vast quantities, the results don’t exactly look appetising.

Shen Hongrui, a Chinese engineer, advises hungry diners to build strong ‘walls’ with cucumber and carrots, creating a tall container on their plate to fill with their favourite foods.

He devised the set of instructions to get around the ‘one bowl, one visit’ rule at the salad bar in his local Pizza Hut in Beijing.


In China, diners beat your buffet.

This is pretty clever! But it doesn't look very appetizing at all.

I don't know about other parts of the world, but when I go to a buffet, it's all you can eat. The word and phrase is almost synonymous.

Agreed. I spend a few hours when I go, and eat as much as I please. Perhaps this is for those "You pay <price> for as much as you can fit on your plate" places. :)

In a court of law this might be valid, but If I owned a buffet and you tried this you would be escorted out fairly early in your cucumber stacking phase... The spirit and the letter differ.

Lol, true that. And if you're gonna eat like a fuckin' glutton, why are you getting a salad in the first place? I swear, the shit people come up with...

    I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and the real archive lives off of headline news

    Happy Monday!
