So I was scrolling down my FB status updates when I came across this from a friend in Nepal – ”Don evea go to that freaking place – HOT BREADS, Durbar Margh where the waiter serves you an orange juice with cockroach as complimentary into it. Bloody asses”
I could tell straight away that he was angered, firstly because hes a journalist and they don’t make spelling mistakes. When I read further comments what I came to understand was the staff at Hot Breads silently handled the situation by taking him to the side and apologising and asking to not create a scene (as that would drive other customers away). Now we have all heard of stories of little rats being found in Samosa’s in some New Road ko pasal; I dont know how true that is but I will let you in an experience which I once had.
I’m a complete junk food lover – meaning I love to eat from Bhatti’s to the street stalls. There was ”Dharaney Momo” pasal in my chowk and they did chow mein for 45 rupees which is really cheap and it tasted great! So much flavour into it…until one day when I had my chow mein at lunch-time in school and I tasted a bit too much flavour. I took one fork-ful of chow mein and as it entered my mouth I realised I was chewing a lot more than just noodles. The crunchiness filled my mouth and I instantly thought – COCKROACH!
However, the best thing about this is I didnt bother spitting the food out as I would have been more disgusted knowing I just had cockroach in my mouth so I munched even harder and swallowed it. Since that incident I havent been able to repeat my visits to ”Dharaney Momo”.
Tell me guys, ever had cockroaches, rats etc in your food?
PS. If you were about to write, I once ate an ANT that was in the sugar jar then dont bother writing… theyre not even animals. They’re practically in the sugar family.
PS No2#. Hot Breads has really gone downhill dont you think? I too didnt like their service back in ’09
PS No3#. There are good places to eat! Dont be put off. lol
