Buggy Rice Shop Special!
Why so many bugs in Chinese food in Hoboken?
“I love your website, I think you do a great job of covering everything Hoboken. I had a disturbing experience with delivery food and I thought your website would be the perfect place to share it.
My boyfriend and I usually order delivery from the same places all of the time, so we decided to try the Rice Shop for the first time. We quickly learned that this was a HUGE mistake.
I ordered a steamed dish and at the bottom of the container I found a bug floating in some water. We called the restaurant and demanded a refund for our meal. The man on the phone kept asking what it was and if we were sure it was a bug. Yes, I know what a bug looks like. He asked if we wanted a replacement of the meal or something else, but we didn’t want anything cooked in that kitchen. The delivery man came back asking to see the bug but we had already thrown everything from them out. I showed him pictures I took of it and he repeatedly apologized and offered to bring us more food. We declined again and told him we would not be ordering from them in the future. Attached are some photos of the bug… so gross!”
