  • This question doesn't seem to be about a problem.
  • Does not seem to need a life hack

The topicality of questions on Lifehacks.SE is largely defined by the Lifehacks Manifesto which was posted during the formation of the site.

The question about weighing food does not satisfy these criteria.
The advertised weight of meat in a restaurant menu refers to uncooked weight.
It does not require an "out of the box" solution to a problem.
If your food doesn't comply with the advertised standards, you complain to Trading Standards.
Also, your posting of a restaurant's contact details could be construed as spam.

Other questions regarding food have also been closed, for example:

This question is not genuinely about a life hack situation and as such is off topic here.

This question about weighing food does not satisfy our criteria of thinking outside the box!

A "life hack" is generally a tool or technique used to solve an everyday problem in unexpected ways. We can't let this become a catch-all site where pretty much anything is on topic — but we are pretty comfortable with harnessing all the creative energies of our hacker-mindset culture to find those intriguing, unexpected solutions to the stubborn problems we face everyday!

So what is a life hack?

A life hack is a seemingly intractable, stubborn problem that can be solved by…

…thinking "outside the box".
