Eat there, like a meal? No. Buy a snack? Yes, absolutely.

Sounds like you could buy a snack and wind up eating a meal.
Not a chance in Hell. I'm a bit picky about what I eat as it is; no way I'm going anyplace where I can't exercise some control over what I get.
What does the first customer eat?
I don't know how they actually do it, but they could use the last order from the day before.
The very first customer for the new policy could have gotten a random order (or the most popular order) contributed by the restaurant.

It sounds like it was just a temporary thing anyway, so there might not have been a day before.
I'm a rude American, so I might have ordered there, but if they failed to communicate how they functioned prior to my paying, I would have raised a stink. If I order a meal, and pay for a meal, and receive an iced coffee, I've been screwed if I haven't been warned in a language or signage that is understandablet to me. Especially if I communicate to them that I do not speak or read Japanese, if I'm ordering a meal and receive iced coffee, I have been defrauded. The joke is only fun or funny if everyone is in on it and no one is harmed by it.
I'd consider it a marginal case-- after all, it was in Japan, not an English-speaking country.

Not a chance in hell. They might have ordered something revolting, like coffee, or something that would make me painfully ill, like a high-fat cheese dish.
