Beware of $8.8/half kg Crab – 南苑海鮮酒家 Beverly Chinese Seafood Restaurant

Just had a dinner at Beverly Chinese Seafood Restaurant (located in Beverly Hills, Sydney) with some of my friends, the reason we picked that restaurant was because my friends want to have the discounted crabs there. As advertised on their food menu, Monday to Friday Dinner Crabs are selling at $8.8 per half kg. which is $17.6 per kg. What I normally see those in the market is around $29.99 per kg, which is nearly 45% off the market price + someone cook them for you. Sound like it is a good deal.

We have 12 people and we ordered a total 7.4kg Crabs, when the dishes arrived we looked at them, we found that the size of the crabs didn’t look like they worth 1kg each. there were a total of 7 crabs in the dish, however, only 1 of them look big enough to reach 1kg, all other crabs were small and tiny which should only weight a maximum 800gram.

Just an estimation, they have over charged us at least 1.5kg. (which I believe it could possibly over 2kg).

To all other people searching for this restaurant, my advise is DO NOT GO TO this restaurant!!!

Here is another blog which said similar thing happened in this restaurant. (it is in Simplified Chinese)

My Blog is IPv6 ready!! IPv6 day is coming!!

ipv6 ready

My web site http://blog.howardtang.com is now IPv6 ready. You can visit my blog via IPv6 connections. Unfortunately, it is IPv6 over IPv4, as a result it should be slower than IPv4. I have purchased a new server and will be install to a colocation which will provide me a native IPv6 connection. By that time, using IPv6 to access my blog should be a lot faster than using IPv4. (only 1% of the world is using IPv6 at the moment. So, it shouldn’t be congested.)

I hope I will see more people get on IPv6.
