Restaurant blues

We had been to this popular South Indian fast food restaurant near our place this weekend. It is well known in the area for its homely food at reasonable pricing and sees a lot of crowd.

We were half way through our dinner, when my husband noticed a teeny-weeny thing floating in the sambar. Initially we thought it was a piece of coriander leaf. But wait, no...on closer examination, we could see the wings and the legs...eeeeks....it was actually a ROACH!  It was  totally appalling and we couldn't believe what we were seeing . We just lost our appetite and left the place.

Now, if you were in a similar situation, what would you have done?
1. Complain about this to the hotel manager
2. Raise an issue and try get your money back
3. Leave the place and resolve never ever to go there again.
4. Rant about it in your blog and may be write some bad reviews online about the restaurant.

I felt we should have atleast done #1 if not #2. But we just did #3 and walked away. And yeah, I am doing #4 now.

O-Oh! Had read a similar post long time back.
Back in India, a nagging thought will always bug(!) me about how sanitary the restaurants are. We somehow think the its different here until something like this happens!

oh ya....totally! We are totally paranoid about eating out now. East or west, home food is the best, I guess!
