SINGAPORE: Hotpot Culture, the Marina Square restaurant famous for its unintended `stewed rat in vegetable’ dish, is having its lease reviewed.
This comes despite the restaurant saying it will increase pest control checks from once a month to once a week. It also said it will stop selling dishes that have to be prepared overnight.
In a separate statement, Hotpot Culture said that they had conducted an experiment by placing dried shrimps in a store-room to see if the shrimps would attract any rats. After about two weeks, the shrimps were left un-touched thus proving that Singapore rats do not eat dried shrimps. They prefer stewed vegetables instead.
