I want to file a complaint about the restaurant Wonton Gourmet. The shrimp dumpling wonton soup that we ordered was spoiled. The odor was so bad that I started gagging and I normally have no sense of smell.
We tried to send it back and the waitress insisted it was ok and that what we smelled were the special sauces. I started eating it and I realized that it was indeed spoiled. The people behind us were also complaining about the soup.
I tried to send it back once more and the waitress set it on the table again, saying that the chef checked it and there was nothing wrong with it (I ate it before and it was fine). She claimed that people come all the way from Columbus to buy the soup.
Instead of trusting our instincts, we tried to eat the soup, but ended up leaving most of it, the broth and noodles, which was were the parts that were spoiled. The dumplings which were floating in the rancid broth tasted OK.
Two of us who had tasted the soup wound up having diarrhea the next day.
We were so upset about how the situation was handled that we took a sample to have tested by the health department.
