Tourists Call Police After Being Charged $685 for Crab Dish

A group of tourists from Japan were shocked and outraged when they were charged $685 for a crab dish at a restaurant in Singapore. The group of four had ordered the Alaskan king crab, which is a large and expensive seafood item. However, they were not aware that the price was per 100 grams, and the crab they ordered weighed 3.5 kilograms.

The tourists attempted to dispute the bill with the restaurant staff, but they were refused a refund. The group was so upset that they called the police. The police arrived and spoke to both the tourists and the restaurant staff. However, they were unable to resolve the dispute, and the tourists eventually paid the bill.

The incident has sparked a debate about the fairness of pricing practices in restaurants. Some people have argued that the restaurant should have been more upfront about the price of the crab dish. Others have argued that the tourists should have been more careful about what they ordered.

Regardless of the merits of each side's argument, the incident is a reminder that it is important to be aware of the prices of the food and drinks that you order when you are dining out. It is also important to be prepared to dispute the bill if you are unhappy with it.
