Man finds cigarette butt in his fancy Haidilao hot pot
BAOJI, CHINA — A Chinese man enjoying some hot pot at China's most popular chain was lucky enough to find a cigarette butt in his yummy-for-the-tummy broth.
According to Pear Video, a customer surnamed Liu was eating at a Haidilao location in the Shaanxi city of Baoji.
Unfortunately for Liu, lurking inside his delicious broth was a nastly old cigarette butt. Either that, or he was eating tobacco flavored hot pot.
Anyways, it looks like Liu called up the chain's headquarters and demanded 14 cents in compensation and that the location be shut down for one week.
Haidilao refused to close the location in question, but they did offer the man $144 instead. Too bad Liu turned them down.
Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.
According to the Shanghaiist, Haidilao now has more than 190 stores through fun-loving China and in cities like L.A., Singapore, Seoul and Tokyo.
