A Chinese Restaurant Is in Boiling Hot Water After Offering Discounts to Large-Breasted Patrons
“Once the promotion started, customer numbers rose by about 20%.”
A “trendy” restaurant in Hangzhou, China has sparked global outrage by offering a special deal many see as “sexist” and “vulgar”: discounts for women with large breasts.
Trendy Shrimp first hung up a poster on August 1 that stated women could claim discounts by revealing their cup sizes to waiters.
Larger busts got better deals while flat-chested patrons were stuck paying full prices.
“The whole city is looking for BREASTS,” the poster in question read.

After people complained to the city council, Trendy Shrimp took the poster down and discontinued its titillating offer. But the restaurants stands by it.
“Once the promotion started, customer numbers rose by about 20%,” general manager Lan Shenggang said.
“Some of the girls we met were very proud,” he added. “They had nothing to hide.”
