Srinagar: A group of tourists from Maharashtra Wednesday alleged that they found a cockroach in their food at Hattrick Restaurant located outside Kashmir University at Hazratbal Srinagar.
A social activist Dr Mushtaq informed CNS that a group of ten doctors from Mumbai arrived few days back in Kashmir as his guest. After visiting Kashmir University on Wednesday, the group asked me to take them to a hotel where they can enjoy good food. They preferred Hattrick Restaurant where to their surprise and shock, they found a cockroach in the Biryani, he said
One of the tourist, Vipul Sompura said that soon after the incident, they entered the kitchen of the Restaurant and found it unhygienic. We photographed the kitchen and were shocked to find it totally unhygienic. The cook hailing from Kolkatta, I think never bothers to clean the utensils. The narrow kitchen stinks there, he said.
Another tourist said after detecting cockroach, when they informed the waiter and manager of the Restaurant, they gavea normal reaction that we felt it is common here. We are shocked how these restaurants are allowed to operate. The authorities need to inspect the condition of every kitchen of the hotel here. Such people should be booked for playing with the health and life of the people, he said.
When contacted the owner of the Restaurant said that he will look into the matter. (CNS)
