All businesses or companies have their rules or laws, The reason for this regulation is to ensure that everything works properly. The same happens in the case of the restaurants, they have rules governing cleaning every corner of the room, proper staff hygiene, how to store and prepare food ... etc.
As we have seen, and we continue to see in the series of articles Agapito Barroso on how you have to design professional kitchens, We have a fairly large number of considerations and regulations relating to the world of hotels and restaurants.
These laws or regulations, there for a good reason. A restaurant is a place where we will have lunch or dinner, elements are talking about going to eat, thus you need to be very careful with every detail.
Restaurants laws difficult to believe
But we have also noticed that, There is a handful of laws relating to restaurants that are, the less curious. Some of them have their explanation, but the fact is that certain life circumstances, forgetfulness or tradition; we have several restaurants stupid laws.
That's why we decided to make this compilation, in which we will list and order the most surreal laws that have been written about restaurants around the world. Some even hard time believing:
1.- In Chicago, you go against the law If you eat at an establishment in flames.
2.- Britain maintained an Act of S. nineteenth prohibits serving tripe cooked on Sundays.
3.- In peace, Bolivia, married women They not allowed to drink more than a glass of wine in a bar public restaurant.
4.- New Jersey is considered officially a slurp soup offense in a public restaurant.
5.- Bars in Amsterdam is completely legal cannabis smoking but can not smoke cigarettes or cigars “normal”.
6.- In Florida there is a law prohibiting the use of computers and smartphones in cybercafes.
7.- There is a law prohibiting Alabama carry an ice cream cone in the back pocket.
8.- In the United Kingdom, women they can not eat chocolate while traveling on public transport.
9.- Kansas is prohibited serve wine in teacups.
10.- In Wisconsin it is illegal in public restaurants sell apple pie without cheese.
11.- Alabama is banned selling peanuts on Wednesdays after sunset.
12.- I do Georgia, It is only allowed to eat fried chicken if done with hands.
13.- In Indiana it is illegal catch a public transport in the following 4 hours after eating garlic.
How you can see, no shortage of strange laws around the world. These rules meaningless, We raise an interesting question, What should happen in each of these places, to encourage the drafting of laws of such caliber?
There are also restaurants with unique and specific standards
further, these are laws cities or populations They refer to what can or should happen in a restaurant. In the case of the very laws of restaurants, also are noteworthy examples. As in the "dead”, Australia restaurant specializing in Japanese food, where its owner, the chef Yukako Ichikawa that fine you if you leave food on the plate and it makes you a 30% otherwise discount, or Japanese restaurant in which it is forbidden to eat what is asked. That is to say, diner order and pay for a plate, but eat what you have asked the previous diner ... crazy.
It is clear that standards are created by the legislative bodies of each country, in order to guide citizens to correct behavior, However in the case of these laws we can not help but to smile.
Finally we want to reflect: Besides all these rules so curious that we are scattered around the world (although the US looks like a place "to feed part"), and basic living standards we all know, we probably thought at some point, while in a restaurant, in a rule that would put us to avoid Children playing near our table, diners gritones or unfriendly waiters.
trust This list of surrealistic laws continue to grow, if only thanks to your suggestions. Are the animals?
