Do you still trust restaurants? ***WARNING - pictures may gross some people out***

I completely lost my appetite after seeing this. However, if you live in Vancouver, it shouldn't surprise you as we have a major infestation throughout the city and it has only been getting worse.

Has anyone actually watched the video?
The soup in question is made off-site at a separate business in Chinatown ...

Boiled and soaked for a long time in a big vat of "the soup" at the factory. Wonder how many other restaurants have served the soup with "rat essence"? Then again, if quality control at any factory or restaurant finds this, will they just remove it, or throw out the entire batch?

You'd think a restaurant with Chowdury in its name would make its own soup.

gonna call bs on this. how the hell did the cook not notice a whole rat when he was using the ladle for that tiny bowl of soup? The customers definitely planted this there is no possible way unless the cook did it on purpose.

Was this legit or someone trying to ruin their business?
Hard work, inheritance, interest on interest accumulating, and stock and real estate speculation. It's all good.

Agreed. However, on the flipside, supposedly the soup was outsourced from another place, which was closed down due to rat prbs, so who knows?

yeah and the rat looks like it had been stewing for awhile (could've also been an old dead rat) but still you think that rat tail would've been dangling out of the bowl when it was scooped in.

Yup, I noticed that too, how come the tail was dangling out and not inside the bowl. So many questions.

apparently the mamie taylors that was shut down was not actually the location where the soup was prepped. People planting stuff in restaurant food in hopes of winning some kind of lawsuit is nothing new, still leaning towards the customers planting it.
Did I read incorrectly as the first paragraph stated that the soup was prepped @Mamie?

Oliver explained that commissary kitchen is located in the basement level of the 251 E Georgia Street restaurant, but Mamie Taylor’s does not use it to store or prepare its food.

It was the commissary space leased by Crab Park Chowdery that did not pass Vancouver Coastal Health inspection, but since the space is part of the overall restaurant premises, the space was shut down.

Tx, it was weirdly worded for me, I just read the first paragraph...so in other words, the Chowdery screwed Mamie and got the latter shutdown since the former was actually prepping the soup there?

yeah i guess they shared the space and the chowdery passed the blame, but keep in mind the place was shut down AFTER they found the rat in the soup and its closure is pending there was no rat incident other than this one incident. the story makes it seem like it was closed down due to a rat infestation before this incident but that is not the case.

TX for clearing that up. I saw that this was not the first time Chowdery got a visit from the health inspectors?

No it wasn't because every restaurant gets visits from health inspectors it's not unusual. it is the first time time the other restaurant was shut down however.

Ic, the way they reported it, made it sound like it wasn't the first time the inspectors came for a complaint, not just a reg call.
