Triathlete Banned from All You Can Eat Restaurant After Chowing Down 100 Plates of Food

Share

Everything in moderation, right? Or, so they say. But for an athlete who fasts for 20 hours at a time, moderation may not be in his vocabulary.

Our hats are off to German triathlete Jaroslav Bobrowski for his impressive eating skills. Bobrowski only eats during a 4-hour window each day as part of his diet.



The man is clearly well-built and physically fit, but maybe he should consider taking up food consumption as a sport.

After what happened at the Running Sushi restaurant in Landshut, Bavaria, Bobrowski ought to be awarded a gold medal for most sushi eaten in one sitting.

For anyone who’s eaten sushi before, we can all picture those tiny plates with a cut-up sushi roll positioned just so.

There are maybe 5 or 6 bite-sized pieces total. I can personally eat 2 or 3 rolls, and that’s good enough for me. Rice is pretty filling, after all.

But 2 or 3 just wouldn’t do it for this marathon-running, 20-hour-fasting machine. When the restaurant offered an all-you-can eat deal for about $18, Bobrowski was sold.



Eater reported the triathlete consumed 100 plates of sushi during his bottomless buffet meal. The outlet estimates this would have added up to possibly 18 pounds of sushi, based on the restaurant’s average portions.

This binge meal reportedly did not go over too well with the restaurant owner, or with the other customers who also wanted to take part in the bottomless sushi offer.

“When I went to the checkout,” Bobrowski told The Local, “I wanted to tip, but the waiter did not want to accept that.”

According to The Local, Bobrowski frequented Running Sushi on a regular basis. But following the 100-plate incident he was “banned” for “eating too much.”



“I was stunned,” he said in his interview. Even so, Bobrowski returned to the restaurant to apologize, according to Eater.

While this ordeal may seem humorous to those of us who live in the United States, a country that boasts an all-you-can-eat buffet on every other corner, the restaurant owner clearly didn’t find it very funny.

Was the restaurant right to ban him?

To be fair, “bottomless,” as Running Sushi’s promotion promised, should mean just that. Perhaps next time they’ll include some fine print with a limited definition of what “bottomless” really means.

In the meantime, I’m sure Bobrowski will find another sushi restaurant where he can satisfy his raw fish cravings. Who do you think was right in this case, the restaurant or the patron?
