Met up with piglyn
in the city after work to catch up and headed to this Vietnamese place.
I ordered a spicy beef noodle soup.
And halfway through my meal...
A piece of fried onion looked really suspicious.
I poked it with a chopstick.
It had legs.
I found a cockroach.
Thankfully it was one of those small brown ones, not the hugeass disgusting sewer ones that are as big as my thumb. But still...*
I drew the attention to the waitress, who immediately got the owner - who in turn took my bowl without another word and talked to the chef. 2 minutes later, he came out to apologise and that the meal would be free and would I like something else for dinner. I decided to go with whatever it was piglyn
was having, since that seemed safe enough and I didn't want them to dreg up more roaches in the same pot of soup out back.
So we got 2.5 meals for free tonight. Woot?
* I know some people who won't abide by anything in their food, other than their food... I personally wouldn't give a shit if there was an ant floating in my food, but I draw the line on roaches and flies.
