Hungry bloke banned from all-you-can-eat Chinese restaurant for eating too much

A bloke has been banished from an all-you-can-eat restaurant in central China after the owner accused him of eating too much.

The food live-streamer, Mr Kang, was banned from the Handadi Seafood BBQ Buffet in Changsha city after he made a few binge eating visits to the eatery.

During these visits, he ate an entire tray – weighing 3lbs 5ox – of pork trotters, and around 8lbs of prawns, believing he was allowed to do so.

On another visit, he guzzled 30 bottles of soy milk.

In response to the ban, Kang told Chinese media that the restaurant was being "discriminatory" against people who can eat a lot of food.

He said: "I can eat a lot – is that a fault?"

"Every time he comes here, I lose a few hundred yuan," said the restaurant owner.

He added that on each of his visits, Kang can down between 20 and 30 bottles of soy milk and eat entire trays of food.

The story has gone viral on Chinese social media, with over 250 million views on the country's main social network Weibo, and viewers have expressed a range of contrasting opinions.

Some have taken the side of the restaurant owner, but others believe the restaurant should not be 'all-you-can-eat' if they cannot afford it.

This comes after the Chinese government urged the country's citizens to begin stockpiling food and essentials.

This news was announced at the beginning of November by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, sparking panic buying among the public.

James demolished the monster burger in just 25 minutes and 37 seconds – which made him the first to beat the clock and earn a place on the 'Legends Board' at the pub.
