Waitress Wins Argument By Eating Cockroach

You can't un-see this

   
If you're eating while you're reading this, we'd like to gently advise you to set your food aside for the duration of the article. Done? Okay. Here we go.

A waitress at a restaurant in China's Sichuan province successfully freaked out everyone in the joint when, after one diner complained of finding a cockroach in his food, picked up the dead insect and popped it in her mouth.
"It's only a cockroach!" she told Zhang Yen, the customer who found the bug in his salad. Upon noticing it, Zhang confronted the waitress.

Her reply? "No matter which restaurant you go to, you will always find cockroaches in the food. It is very normal."

Zhang then told her that if it was really so normal, she should just go ahead and eat it. Which she did.

Mic drop?

The owner of the Jinsha Era Plaza hotel in Chengdu, where the incident took place, has since apologized, explaining that the roach probably crawled in from outside (which makes things better... how?). He also said that the server, Jin Kuo, has been given a pay cut.

Commentators on social media sites who watched a video of the scene said he should've given her a pay raise instead.

reading about the coachroach in the salat, not to amusing in my opinion, but nothing new in third worl countrys, cleanlyness is not that important either, that;s why you find those four legged critters.
iam; German , wouldn;t wont to be anybody else, one thing in europe is cleansingness , least about food what you put in your mouth, but people from Asia, middleeast, wont know why such a big deal?
ps. the show on sixty minutes few years back, taped a few venders in new york, the guy was taking care of a itch between his legs,than fixed the lady her hot dog, cought on tape, not funny since he could have washed his hands or wore some gloves.
trust me, I wont eat from street venders unless Iam in germany.
sincerly sonja wolff. ps Guten Appetit.

Ha, the old movie.... 'Joe's Apartment'. If you haven't seen it, you need to. The ultimate cockroach situation.

I lived as a missionary for 32 years in various parts of China. I found that eating cockroachs, beetles and other small sources of protein was quite common. Cockroach eating is no worse than eating flesh from any living creature.

Those snails (aka as escargot) that covered our walkway and house while it rained were on every upscale restaurant's menu while living on the island of Okinawa, Japan and were an expensive item at that....made my stomach churn literally.

jai.hye, escargot is excellent, plus the snails are much easier to catch than the cockroaches who are devilishly fast.

ezsoub42, you are sort of correct, depending on how you prepare the roach. Think of this though, while you cook your chicken. Your chicken tastes like cockroach. Mmmmm...
