An insect would have been visible in all dishes except the soup(s).

So for them to have consumed half of the food in all the dishes before they start to complain means the insect must have been in the soup, or else they would have lodged their complaints much earlier.

If the customers had consumed half of everything including the soup(s), they should have been charged for everything except the soup(s).

So here the restaurant owner should have added the charge for the soup(s) to the refund.

Had he been able to do so without raising the public's ire in the social media, he should have been commended for his generosity.

Otherwise you'll find an army of beggars descending on China's restaurants, armed with nothing but small cockroaches.

All they have to do to wiggle out of a Y5000 bill towards the end of a sumptuous feast is to claim they've found a small cockroach in the soup.

If the courts would have to strictly follow the law in this fashion, there will be no unemployment problem in China.  

Taking the above example to its extreme, you can see that the punitive compensation fee for the Y5000 sumptuous feast (using a multiplier of 63.5 (= 1016/16) would have sufficed to support an average family of four comfortably for 3-5 years (Y317,500) depending on where they live.

Ingenious law designed to bleed the Old Country?

Haven't I told you not to smack me on the head with those hairy tampons, ladies?

That's the same as the Me-too Syndrome we have seen on the Priest-Molestation cases.

Yup, some customers like it raw -- euphemistically called "rare."

They are then accepting the responsibility of seeing maggots crawl out of the inside of the beef, since "rare" means the inside of the beef is not cooked at all.

Even in 60% or medium-rare steaks you can sometimes see maggots.

No kidding -- Mother Earth is inhabited by a tribe of humans who love to consume live insects.
