say NO to sri paandis...

Yesterday a group of us went to Sri Paandis (PJ) for dinner. It’s a very popular place which is always packed although I don’t think much of it since I always purge after eating there. Anyways when one of my buddies was on his last spoonful of his roti sardin, he felt something weird in his mouth. Obviously he spat it out to investigate and low and behold it was a freaking insect! God only knows what exactly but it was roughly the size of a cockroach and white in color. By then all of us had finished our meals and was wondering where it came from. Was it from his roti itself or was it from the tray of curries that we shared? After it got passed around the table we called the waiter. A debate then ensued whereby they claimed it was just a piece of onion. How in the freaking world does a piece of onion have an exoskeleton and a head?! They then proceeded to take it to the kitchen to examine only to never come back. When we went to pay, we again brought the topic up but everyone seemed lost like we were high on something. My buddy then pretended to make a call and before you know it the owner showed up. He explained that it was the first time they bought a particular brand of canned sardines and it was most probably from there. They said sorry to my mate, gave back his money and said it won't happen again. Now, how would you feel and what would you do? Can’t really sue because the proof has been discarded and can’t cause a scene coz then we end up looking like idiots. Only thing to really do is to boycott the damn place, spread the news around and maybe call the Department of Health (if it makes a difference). At least then they would be fined and might have to close for a few days or weeks. I’m sure they would lose a hellave lot of profit from that. Then they would feel the pinch. Sadly my mate has decided to not do anything about it. So for now all I can say is PLEASE DO NOT GO TO SRI PAANDIS!!!

There are many Sri Paandi's restaurants around. Were you referring to the one in Brickfields? Even so, there's 2 on both sides of the road...
