Culinary no-no's



It’s a fact.
Prettier women get the breaks.

Are you one of the beautiful people? If so, you're probably worth more.

Dateline NBC
discovered what many studies have concluded: Folks are more apt to help someone who’s attractive.

You get the point.


That’s our lead-in to this week’s segment which takes us to…

Zhengzhou, the capital city of Henan Province, is located in the middle of China. The famous Shaolin Temple inspired Kung Fu movies. Zhengzhou is a national historical and cultural city and one of the key destinations on any Henan Tour. It was the capital of the Shang Dynasty (16th - 11th century BC) at a time when porcelain and the Chinese technique of bronze smelting were more developed. The city boasts  many cultural and historic sites.

There's a Korean restaurant in Zhengzhou called Jeju Island.

Take a good look at the restaurant’s façade. Notice anything?

Of course you do. It’s right there in plain English.

FREE MEAL FOR GOODLOOKING

And the management isn’t kidding. Jeju Island offers free meals to customers who are judged to be good looking. That’s the key. You have to be judged to get your dinner gratis. The first 50 people each day ruled to be good looking do not get a bill.

How does the promotion work? First, a customer faces a scanner in the restaurant’s “beauty identification area.”

More than a million people surged through the boulevards of Paris behind dozens of world leaders walking arm-in-arm Sunday in a rally for unity described as the largest demonstration in French history. Millions more marched around the country and the world to repudiate three days of terror that killed 17 people and changed France. Photo: Dan Kitwood / Getty Images

Staff from Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) office were catching fish on Tuesday at the ground floor of the roofless New World department store that was closed down in 1997. Thousands of fish such as catfishes, fancy carps as well as black and red tilapias were released into the ground floor of the building, flooded with rainwater, as local vendors tried to control mosquitoes in the area, local media reported. BMA recently decided to remove the fish and release the water. Photo: Chaiwat Subprasom / Reuters

They used ropes and safety harnesses to catch themselves in case of a fall, but relied entirely on their own strength and dexterity to ascend by grasping cracks as thin as razor blades and as small as dimes.
