A restaurant in China has been shut down after a Chef was seen on surveillance camera spitting in a dish while cooking for a customer.

The incident happened on Sunday at the Sufuji Restaurant in Xi’an following the easing of lockdown.

According to local newspaper Huashang Daily, the customer gained access to the video after finding a cigarette butt in a stew he had ordered and then complained about it to the restaurant.

While watching the surveillance footage, the diner was shocked to see the chef cooking without a face mask before spitting into his dish in the restaurant’s kitchen.

You can see in the surveillance footage very clearly that the chef bent down to spit into the wok especially,’ Mr Zheng said.

The restaurant claimed that the 22-year-old chef, Mr. Wang, had spat on the edge of the wok, not inside.

But the restaurant worker claimed he was experiencing tightness in the throat and spat on the ground, according to the report.

He told the reporter that he had been suffering from throat inflammation. He said he was ‘feeling uncomfortable in the throat’ when he was making the dish.

The shopping mall, where the restaurant is located has ordered the closure of the store, while local market watchdog has launched an investigation into the case and ordered the restaurant to rectify its problems, Beijing News reported.

In a social media statement released Monday, the restaurant said it was ‘very ashamed’ of the matter and expressed its’ most sincere apologies’ to the public. They promised to cooperate with the investigation.
