How it works:
- Situation: most food places are fine. However, there are some black sheep which try to rip tourists off. However, sometimes it’s really down to dishonest staff rather than the food establishment per se, not having a menu or not reflecting the prices on the menu, claiming that the prices on the menu were not right when it’s time to pay, etc.
- Tricks used: adding items to the bill which you did not order, reflecting a different, higher price on the bill as compared to on the menu,
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.
