A man in England shared what he thought were his unique problems with taking his Asian family out for a meal, but discovered that there were plenty of people who had the same issues.
Aadil Hanif from Leeds tweeted about how difficult is it to take Asian parents out for a meal. He complained that his mother always claimed she could make it better, while his father always argued about how it was a waste of money. He also claimed that he claimed that his siblings were no better than his parents given their complaints.
Acc no they complained then too

The tweet got nearly 30,000 likes but also received a lot of responses from people who said that they’d had similar experiences.
Many remarked about how “scarily accurate” his description was and many spoke of their own experiences of taking their parents out for a meal.
Why is this sooo accurate 🤣🤣 https://t.co/L6GDoeDaHW

Last week took my parents to a Korean cafe and had their famous dessert Bingsoo & the amount of lecture I received on how its just ice shavings with ice cream & some oreo biscuits on top and how my mom could have made the same thing at home herself and my dad just had some tea😂 https://t.co/juUfZN4PYj
