Diamond NDC probing unsanitary Chinese restaurant 


…after roach found in fried rice

The Little Diamond-Herstelling Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) Sanitation Department says it is investigating an allegation that a roach was cooked in a batch of Chinese fried rice.

Head of the NDC’s Sanitation Department, Ms Holder confirmed that the investigation was launched after an overseas-based couple bought the food from a popular Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD) restaurant and subsequently found a roach inside.

The woman stated that she bought two servings of Chinese fried rice and left the restaurant.

“I was driving and my husband began eating in the car, so when I stopped at the traffic light, I bent over to taste the food and it was then I saw the roach in his food,” the woman reported.

She further explained they immediately returned to the restaurant, and the cashier who was taking orders advised them to “hold on” outside so that she could contact her boss.

However, the angry woman said that she waited over half an hour only for the cashier to return to say that the boss was unavailable

Just recently, another popular city Chinese restaurant came in for harsh criticism after a customer found what was later identified as a human tooth in his food.
