ou might not recognize every ingredient you come across in a restaurant dish, but that doesn't mean you need to freak out about contamination when you come across a foreign one. Apparently, these people didn't get the memo...
It's a bay leaf, first of all.
Yes, it IS supposed to be in the dish, though it’s not very pleasant to eat. But as you’ll see, people who find it act like they found a syringe in their food.
It's very edible and used to impart flavor in food.
It’s often in the water tossed in with braised or simmering foods.
At Chipotle, it’s an ingredient in the rice, and sometimes it gets scooped into the food if it’s not removed prior.
But some people are acting like it's a much bigger deal.
I guess they think their burritos are being made under a tree, which isn’t the case, but a leaf is a leaf to most people.
"Like a leaf off a tree."
Then there’s this very dramatic reaction.
Most leaves are off trees, kind customer.
Something tells me this person might not be a whiz in the kitchen.
Seriously, there's all sorts of leaves and branches and shrubs in many foods we eat.
Posting these is basically just posting the context-less tweet “I don’t know what a bay leaf is, so I’m gonna freak out.”
