How it works:
- Situation: most food places are fine. However, there are some black sheep which try to rip tourists off. Also, sometimes these are perpetrated by rogue staff even at reputable food places and this is really not the fault of the food establishment.
- Tricks used: not providing a bill/receipt but charging you an inflated final price, charging a different price compared to what you see on the menu, doing a bait and switch by promoting special dishes/offers only for you to find out they are unavailable when you enter.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Choose: reputable places and avoid those promoted by touts.
- Check: menu (prices, fine print), itemized bill, and do not eat what was not ordered.
