Diner Finds Cockroach in His Food, Waitress Eats it To Prove It's Edible and Normal

Posted in: ,

A waitress has shocked diners at the restaurant in China where she worked by picking up a dead cockroach from a customer's plate and eating it right it in front of them.

The bizarre incident began when a man, Zhang Yen, went to a restaurant in Sichuan and found a cockroach in his food. When Zhang complained about the cockroach, Jin Kuo, the waitress, engaged him in a heated argument, telling him it was very normal to find a cockroach in restaurant food. She said;
'No matter which restaurant you go to, you will always find cockroaches in the food. It is very normal.'
It was at this point that one of the people who was with Zhang grabbed his mobile phone and started to video the incident.

Zhang told her that if it was so normal, she should eat it to show it was part of the food, and then there would  be no need to argue further. Immediately, she picked the cockroach off the side of his plate, put it into her mouth and swallowed it.

A speechless Zhang paid for the meal shortly after. The restaurant owner then apologized to Zhang and said that she would punish the staff by reducing her salary (we conversely think a raise is in order). The owner explained that the cockroach might've been blown into the dish by the hot gas while cooking. Due to the sincerity of the restaurant owner, Zhang did not hold them liable.

Some of the commentators who viewed the video on social media sites said the waitress should have been given a pay rise. I say she should be fired. Such poor customer service!

The Shangaist says this is not the first time a restaurant staff has tried to defuse a hygiene row by eating the evidence. In May, a restaurant manager ate a condom after customers found it in their fish dish. He had rejected their claim it was a condom and insisted it was a ring of calamari and ate it to prove the point.
