Tablet Strip In Chicken Meal |

A Colaba resident was in for a rude shock on the eve of Christmas when he found "half-cooked" medicine tablets upon unpacking the food parcel ordered from Leopold Cafe and delivered by Swiggy. Taking to X, Ujwal Puri, a photographer, on Sunday shared photos and a video of his dish, chicken in oyster sauce.

FDA likely to take action

The Food And Drug Administration is likely to take action against the well-known eatery located in Colaba. "We will be sending a team to the Leopold Cafe for the inspection today (December 26) following which action will be taken against them. We will also check for food and safety norms and health certificates of the employees working at the joint," said FDA Joint Commissioner (food) Shailesh Adhao.

The images uploaded by Puri showed a two-tablet strip placed inside the bowl. Of the two pills, one was already consumed while the other was intact. Seeking Swiggy's intervention into the issue, he expressed concerns about the quality of food packed at the well-known eatery located in Colaba. Responding to the post, Swiggy promised to look into the matter. Reacting to the post, netizens panned Swiggy and Leopold Cafe alike.

"Swiggy support is useless. They just have an employee who says we will look into this and we 'assure' you of not repeating the mistake," a user commented. Another said, "Leopold’s food quality has been deteriorating over time. But this is a new low! What a way to ruin a Christmas meal." Leopold Cafe has been pathetic in recent years! Everything is unhygienic – place, food, kitchen, cutlery, staff, ambience and even furniture. Please exempt Swiggy’s poor delivery boy. He was the messenger, don’t shoot the messenger," wrote a third.

The Free Press Journal tried contacting Leopold Cafe, it was unavailable for comment.
