Korean Couple Cusses Fuss over Taiwan Restaurant Bill

Posted on August 24, 2012

A popular beef noodle restaurant in Taiwan made it into the news because of a Korean couple who caused a ruckus a few days ago.

The couple ordered five cold side dishes along with their beef noodles, but after receiving the bill, they called in the manager saying that they wouldn’t pay for the side dishes because they are served for free in Korea.

The manager tried to negotiate and reason with the couple, but they just kept on shouting, “Why?! Why?!” in English.  Since the couple seemed to be disturbing other customers, the manager just let them go without having them pay the bill.

Of course, it is unethical not to pay for something you have eaten just because you think it should be free. Kimchi may be served for free in Korea, but not all countries do the same.

When faced with situations like that, we should learn from our mistakes by saying, “So that’s how it is done here.”

The next day, the manager showed that he had learned from the incident and put up a sign in Korean that reads “Charges are applied for cold side dishes.”
