Well, here's one way to cut down waste in your restaurant: In Saudi Arabia, a restaurateur has imposed a fine on diners who leave food on their plates. As he explains, "There are many clients who make large orders in order to impress the people around them and boost their social prestige." But it's totally fair because he adjusts the fines on a sliding scale depending on how much food is left over. [UPI via Globe and Mail]
