A woman had posted a video of a cooked rat in a bread bowl that she was served at Crab Park Chowdery,Vancouver B.C. on her Instagram account. The video claims to show a customer spooning a rat carcass out of a bread bowl of soup served.

Since posting the video the restaurant has received an onslaught of calls and messages, and Vancouver Coastal Health is conducting an ongoing investigation. However, Crab Park Chowdery released a statement on Jan. 1, 2019, explaining that they have looked into the situation, and “and have unequivocally concluded there is no way this incident could have happened in our kitchen or as a result of any actions by our staff prior to being prepared and served.”

The soup, however, is not prepared at the Chowdery itself, but rather the restaurant had been renting a kitchen space on the premises of Mamie Taylor’s to prepare their soups and chowders for delivery to their Gastown storefront. In the wake of the incident, Vancouver Coastal Health shut down Mamie Taylor’s in order to conduct an inspection of the property; Crab Park Chowdery was permitted to remain open, since the soup was not made at that location.
