So I decided to try something new. I went to an Asian mall and found a restaurant called Dim Sum. Dim Sum has mostly positive reviews and seems like they have a cult following.

After being served my meal, while it was still piping hot, I met a new friend.

The bug wouldn’t leave! It’s like the roach only loved my table. Although the food tasted great, I lost my appetite and left immediately. I didn’t cause any scene at the check out counter, quietly paid and left. According to The Spruce, I mishandled the situation.

If you spot at roach inside of a restaurant, this is what you should do:

  1. If you see even a single pest, your first step should be to report the sighting to a manager of the facility. It could be an isolated incident, or you could be doing the restaurant a favor by helping them take care of the problem on their own.
  2. If you are not satisfied with the response you receive, or it is a major or ongoing problem, the next step would be to report the problem to the state health department.
  3. Each state has some differences in its regulations, inspections, and reporting standards. However, in almost any case, you can contact your state health department to report a problem or receive guidance on how and to whom to report.
  4. You can find your state health department contact information at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
