    Unhappy Buffet Dinner - Hidden Cost?

    Went to a Steamboat Shop the other day, the sign says $22 per person.

    So me and friend went in, sat down and the "waiter" came with a menu and say..
    "you may choose which soup you want but you have to pay extra $10".

    So I asked, I just want normal soup, but he said CANNOT.

    So I asked, your buffet $22 only apply to the food, but with no soup...so you cannot cook the food...He say "YES! no choice!"

    So I went to other shops, some offer $5 some offer $10..

    We finally went to one shop which offer $17.90+++++, and $5 for the soup.
    The mutton...haiz...throw against the wall and may not even break up..

    Scary...
