Forbes: Restaurant Foods That Are Ripping You Off


Walk into a Japanese restaurant hungry and you’re likely to order the $6 bowl of soybeans or edamame to tide you over while you ponder the menu. Next time, avoid the temptation. Restaurants buy frozen edamame for $1.95 a pound, or sometimes even less depending if it’s a chain. There’s little preparation involved – the pods are blanched and tossed through some seasoned salt or soy, before a 4-ounce portion costing the kitchen less than $0.50 arrives at your table.
