Not a scam 2

Peking Duck.

This is quite funny actually to watch in Beijing or HK in touristy restaurants, people order Peking duck and think it is the bastardised version of Peking duck they have at home whereby there is both a ton of meat and skin.

In China the authentic version is where a chef type wheels out a whole duck and the people think wow look at that a whole duck for 50RMB or whatever, at which the chef gets a knife out and cuts off ONLY the skin and takes the rest of the duck away to be prepared for something else. You can watch the tourists faces deflate as they take the rest of the duck away.

Many many people think this is an absolute scam but it isn't this is the way it's supposed to be just the skin and the small layer of fat underneath.
