Well yes, as expected, things got dense because the couple did not hesitate to sue the restaurant for the dead rat in the soup. Broadly speaking, the lawsuit says that Eunice Lucero-Lee and Jason Lee “they suffered serious and permanent personal injuries“.

The restaurant denied all the facts using some videos where, according to the administrators of the place, the method of preparing the soup is seen and at no time is any incident seen. However, the New York Department of Health conducted an inspection at the facility and found several details to consider.

According to the New York Post, rat droppings found, the food is also not kept at the proper temperature and the staff were not well qualified to act as supervisors. After the inspection, Gammeeok was closed last Wednesday, March 15, but they can open as long as correct the violations found and pay their respective fine.
