Ketchup is one of America’s favorite condiments, but in one restaurant don’t even dare request it.

According to Yahoo, ‘Mad Fresh Bistro’ in Fort Myers, Florida refuses to serve ketchup to anyone older than 10.

The following statement is on the restaurant’s website, “We know, we know. People love their ketsup. But honestly, be ready. If you’re over 10 years old, ketsup will NOT be provided. Similarly, salt won’t be making an appearance next to your meal, either. We simply ask that you trust us. We know what we’re doing! Part of the MAD experience is to trust the chef, and not have preconceived notions of what your dish is going to need.”

According to news-press, chef-owner Xavier Duclos defended his rule.

He told them, “My burger has got a sauce on it already. There’s no point in adding a sweet sauce on top of that. I think ketchup is edible – on certain things. I’ll give it that much. But it’s just not part of my culinary agenda.”

    Cool idea! Maybe people will actually TASTE the FOOD! Americans drown their food in so much garbage out of a bottle. I wouldn’t even offer it to the people under 10, that doesn’t make sense to me. If you aren’t going to offer it to people 10 and up, don’t offer it at all.
