Can you really feed 30 (or even 20 per MadNad) from the menu at The Spice Lounge, Durham?

Is there some inflation going on?

The first DM story I read about this said that the original claim of "an order for 30 people" came from the delivery guy.
However, later in the same story, it was said that he couldn't be sure of that.
It is possible that I wasn't reading one of the first reports, but was reading a follow up story, allowing the the 'original claim' to be high up in the article, and the subsequent roll back on the claim was further down, probably below some pictures or maybe adverts.
My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!

What do you mean? Their main menu has like 5 pages of different main courses. You could easily feed 30 people without ordering the same dish twice.

They ended up using a different takeaway anyway because Spice Lounge was closed. And I think the current estimate is 15 people.

Haha yeah, if you assume I'm already familiar with the important numerical details of the story then you are indeed a big bobo.

I might be heading to Málaga in mid June btw if you're about etc.
