German Triathlete Tests Limits of All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Restaurant

He’s now unwelcome after eating all he could.

A Japanese restaurant in Bavaria, Germany, may want to change its signage from “All-You-Can-Eat Sushi” to “All-You-Can-Eat Sushi (unless you happen to be a triathlete with the appetite of four or five full-grown men)” – just for the sake of accuracy.

This change may be advisable in light of the restaurant’s response to a recent visit from 30-year-old Ironman competitor Jaroslav Bobrowski and his girlfriend.

Bobrowski scarfed down so much sushi – 100 plates, when the average eater generally tops out around 25, max – during an hour-and-a-half-long visit to its all-you-can-eat, €15.90 (about $19 U.S.) sushi carousel on a recent Saturday night that, at the end of his meal, the restaurant’s owner banned him from eating there for life.

“I was … stunned,” Bobrowski told Donaukurier.

According to local reports, Bobrowski, who stands 5'7" and weighs 174 pounds and works as a fitness trainer and software executive, is on a diet in which he fasts for 20 hours and then compensates in the four hours he can eat.

"I eat until I am full," he said, noting that he wasn’t even in training at the time, when his appetite tends to increase even more.

The restaurant, for its part, told local reporters that Bobrowski’s appetite is “not normal.”

As for banning him, one employee said, “We're sorry."

But, you know, maybe not that sorry ...
