    Gross kitchen

    What is the most disgusting place you have ever been asked to work in. I had one the other day. A call for a reach in cooler 6 drawer. I opened it up and took drawers out. There had to be 3 inches of old rotten food in the bottom . The smell was absolutely overwhelming. I refused to continue work until they had bleached the inside and scrubbed. This layer of filth had not been cleaned and years and now cooler down for a few days. A couple weeks ago I found a Chinese restaurant with cook cutting meat and pounding on floor. I opened cooler that was down and at least 200 cockroaches ran out I got it running by replacing dinex controller. U went to check condenser section and moved chest freezer away and the floor came alive. I have never seen so many cockroaches. It was a warranty call and u got the hell out ASAP

    Now, the next question is, did the rats just happen to die in there, or where they keeping them and planning on cooking them?

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I thought that is what you ment, but even with the restaurants I have worked in, that seemed beyond my imagination.

    Sometimes I wonder why Chinese places even have coolers, I will go to work at one and they just let chicken sit out all day even when they have a working cooler.

    I used to do work at a chinese restaurant. No a/c in the kitchen, only in the dining area. Every time I'd go there during the summer, there would be a guy sitting at the back door of the kitchen. Door open and he's peeling shrimp with flies surrounding him because the dumpster was right outside the door. I t would get upwards of 110-120 degrees in the kitchen and none of the equipment worked right. All the coils covered in peanut oil which is next to impossible to clean. One of the cooks impressed me though. He could flip stirfry around in a wok while smoking with an entire cigarrettes length of ash hanging off the filter without the ash dropping into the wok(at least I never saw it drop)

    I have to agree with you there. IMO by far the worst, and the most difficult to communicate with, once you wake them up in back or in a booth.

    That's the worst when you see the rodents come out of the equitment.. I bring over the owner and show him how filthy his place is., some get really mad for pointing it out but others appreciate it and start yelling at the cooks to start cleaning.. Then the cooks see me as an enemy. Lol

    I've been in a lot of residences that were the same story with roaches and the "wall moves" when you move the fridge.

    Glad I work where I work now in that respect.
