Dozens sickened at banquet, but city can say little | philly.com
Epic philly.com comments section there.
It's a shame, I enjoy their food but this scares me a bit, especially the callous attitude of the owner.
Eaten at Joy Tsin Lau and I know the original owners son and daughter for 30 years.
They serve the Best Dim Sum in the City.
When you get the pukes or poops from bad food the Health Dept does not do anything unless people die from bad food.
I think it is common to become sick eating Chinese food.
When you have 100 lawyers sick in a restaurant then that sounds like a lawsuit.
It is kind of funny that it happened to 100 lawyers but I still feel bad for them.
We could do lawyers jokes about the incident.
I have had food poisoning from eating mussels and spaghetti in the Reading Terminal. OH ME OH MY YUCK!!
They even apologized to me. I guess they deserve an apology?
City sues Chinatown eatery where lawyers were sickened | Philly.com
This is too funny, truly Monty Python stuff:
The victims, many of them personal-injury lawyers, were laid low for several days with severe vomiting and diarrhea
Yeah, this is when you want to get on a Chinatown bus and "disappear"
Bet you didn't see this coming...
Suit filed against Joy Tsin Lau over February food poisoning | Philly.com
Closed and gone by the end of the year..
That's what happens when you don't read the menu closely.....you think you are getting chicken lo mein but instead it was chicken ptomaine.
No one has told me (and I know many dim sum fans both Chinese and American) that Joy Tsin Lau has the best dim sum in the city.
And it is not common to become sick eating properly prepared restaurant food, Chinese or otherwise.
Philly restaurant inspections stay secret for 30 days | Philly.com
yeah, totally lost my business.
More health violations at Joy Tsin Lau | Philadelphia Inquirer
oh man. thanks for this info.
my office has done group lunches there in the past. i will be sure to recommend against that in the future.
You might give up going out for lunch period after spending any amount of time on City of Philadelphia's Food Safety Inspection Reports page.
I was in JTL well more than a decade ago at the invitation of a friend. A brown cockroach casually sached up the wall next to our booth and that was the last I ever went there. Fearless cockroaches indicate much larger hygiene problems in restaurants.
None of this news is shocking. Really gross though. But to clean that place out I'd guess you'd probably need to gut the building totally and intensively fumigate the stripped-down shell with an illegal weapon-grade gas of some type.
Why are they still in business? Who goes there anymore? Nasty, nasty, nasty. I like their Tintin singage font though. I'll miss that when it's gone.
I think we could shut down all of Chinatown if we wanted....
