There are some perks to being short. Such as free shade from the sun provided by others when out walking among mortals.
One hotpot restaurant in Taiwan though is giving shorties something to shout about.
Free slices of meat for those under 1.75m
Ai Shi Guo, a hotpot restaurant in Taiwan specialising in mala soup base, is apparently giving patrons one slice of meat for each cm shorter than 1.75m.
Here's the banner hanging at their storefront, essentially saying height is not a problem:
"We shouldn't be separated by stature, no stress when eating meat. From today, we are giving you one slice of meat for every cm below 1.75cm."
In a Facebook post, the hotpot restaurant acknowledged the summer promotion.It is unclear when this promotion will run until.

Several soup bases are available, such as mala, chicken and pork bone broth, meat with pickled cabbage, and double rich pumpkin milk soup.
There is a minimum spend of NT$688 (S$30.20) per diner and some soup bases also have an extra charge.
A two-hour dining time limit is also imposed.
According to the restaurant menu, one plate of pork belly would cost NT$398 (S$17.50), while a plate of meatballs would cost NTS$168 (S$7.80).
