VIDEO: Waitress gobbles down cockroach after diner finds it in his salad
When a businessman found a cockroach scuttling around in his salad he was shocked, but when his waitress ate the insect he was left truly gobsmacked.
When Zhang Yen spotted the insect he alerted waitress Jin Kuo to the creepy crawly lurking in his lettuce.
The 39-year-old restaurant worker told Yen that such a discovery was fairly common and that there was nothing to worry about.
Yen then sarcastically invited Kuo to feast upon the foul creature; at which point she picked up the insect, popped it in her mouth and gobbled it down.
Shocked onlookers videoed the events as they transpired at the Jinsha Era Plaza hotel restaurant in the western city of Chengdu, China.
Ms Kuo is seen telling 43-year-old Yen: “No matter which restaurant you go to, you will always find cockroaches in the food. It is very normal.”
Once Yen saw Kuo devour the insect he stood up, paid in full and left, shaking his head.
The restaurant subsequently apologised, saying Ms Jin had been given a pay cut to punish her
