A chicken shop with a zero-star hygiene rating has been dubbed the ‘most tired in London’ after it served one diner a raw burger.
Food blogger M.Combes from London uses his platform to share reviews of chicken shops, mainly around the capital.
In a clip shared on TikTok, he revealed he had travelled to Belsize Park in northwest London to try out a place called QC Flava’s.
Doing his research, he checked the establishment for its hygiene rating and was left shocked when he discovered it had a zero after last being inspected in November 2022.
When a health inspector assesses a food vendor they look at how food is handled, stored, prepared and how clean the facilities are, amongst other criteria.
Unfortunately Mr Combes discovered his chicken burger hadn’t been cooked all the way through and was still pink inside
According to the Food Standards Agency, a zero rating means that urgent improvement is necessary and the business has ‘significant’ food hygiene breaches that could put people’s health at immediate risk.
Shocked but remaining strong to give his followers his honest review, Combes checked out the menu displayed in the window before deciding on a Chicken Strip Burger meal for a reasonably priced £3.50.
Telling his fans he was about to lose his mind after discovering the abysmal rating, he asked people to pray for him as he entered the shop.
In the short video, M.Combes, who uploaded the clip in June, is seen ordering his snack as he checks out the interior of the restaurant.
Noting a threadbare sofa in the waiting area, he went further inside to where the tables and chairs are located.
After collecting his meal Combes took a seat at one of the tables which already had remnants of someone else’s dinner on it.
He ordered a chicken strip burger meal, which came with chips and a drink. He said the chips weren’t awful but he could tell the oil in the fryer hadn’t been changed for a while
Social media user M.Combes chose a chicken shop to review that had a 0 star hygiene rating and documented exactly what happened
Opening up the container for his viewers to see, he started by describing the aroma of the meal, which was not promising.
Noting it smelled like the oil in the fryer hasn’t been changed for a while, he spotted a bit of oil on the bun and questioned why it was there.
Deciding to try a chip, he opted for one of the darker brown ones thinking it must be more cooked.
After nearly burning his mouth on it he took a swig of the fizzy drink only to splutter when he discovered it was warm.
Finally, taking the plunge to bite into his burger he took a look at the meat inside and visibly gagged.
Showing it to the camera the meat appeared to be pink inside. Combes didn’t finish his meal but chucked the rubbish in the bin before leaving.
Viewers were left horrified by the clip and rushed to give their thoughts on the establishment and the TikToker’s hilarious review.
MC replied to one commentator that he was already worried about what was going to happen to his toilet when the meal worked its way through
One worried person replied that they would be praying for him.
‘I used to live there. I can’t believe that place is still open. WHO IS GOING THERE,’ added a former local of the shop.
Another asked: ‘I swear it’s harder to get 0 than at least a 3. Like no way the conditions are that bad’
‘Nahhhh 0 is a madness, you a braver man than me,’ wrote someone else.
‘Bro’s sacrificing his life for all of us, 0 rating is madddddddd,’ added another viewer, while a sixth person joked: ‘Bro is risking his life for us’
According to the Food Hygiene Agency QC Flava’s was recently inspected and a new rating will be published soon.
FEMAIL contacted QC Flava’s for comment but they did not respond.
