Batter Sausage + Chips ... From an Italian Chipper .. Loads of salt and vinegar.
What were they up to?
I'm a fan of a chicken curry, diced with boiled rice and a side order or spicy chilli chicken.
Cooked food dropped on a filthy floor - wiped off and put back on plate.
Customer asking if steak was fresh, of course sir, as they took it out of the freezer.
Food storage - raw meat over dairy products, dripping was solved by wiping off top of whatever had had something dripped on it.
Actually that reminds me of when I worked in the deli of a famous irish supermarket, they would cut the mouldy parts off the quiche slices and continue to sell them.
Ah stop Really?
Im afraid so.
The supermarket probably had worse practices than the restaurant actually.
Chicken Pad Thai or a chicken burrito bowl from Boojum.
I could happily eat either of those for the rest of my life.
And all their sauces taste the same - sweet and slightly syrupy.
Its what they put in them
A guy came in one evening and said to me "What do you recommend" and I completely straight faced said to him "Another restaurant sir".
Anyway - we are getting way off topic so suffice to say, bad food practices happen all over the place - you only have to look at the closure notices from the FSAI monthly.
At least with a chipper even if there is bits of dodge getting into the food its getting cremated in the hot oil to the degree that it probably wouldnt harm you anyway.
But pretty normal everywhere. I worked in a café years ago for a few months and I saw and had to do some seriously manky things.
I think the worst was when we didn't get a delivery of fresh veg, the tomatoes in the shop were mouldy and our manager advised us to salvage whatever is salvageable.
I quit the same day.
Sounds like the perfect Friday night tbh
