Guevarra’s hope to resolve food poisoning woes soon
Buffet restaurant Chef Laudico’s Guevarra is hoping it could re-open soon after the local government of San Juan shuts down its operations amid a food poisoning complaint.
An earlier report showed that a family of five recently fell victim to food poisoning after dining at the restaurant.
Their complaint, however, was not given full attention by the restaurant’s management, prompting them to air their concerns in the social media.
In the post, they said that a legitimate medical report showed that they were all diagnosed with cholera vibrio, a bacteria that can be obtained by eating certain food and drinking water, after dining at the restaurant.
Upon seeing this, San Juan City Mayor Guia Gomez ordered the temporary closure of the restaurant as well as thorough inspection on its facilities and drainage system.
“Our restaurant is aware of ailments reported by certain individuals who dined at Guevarra’s recently. We empathized with our valued customers, and we have been in contact with them since they relayed the incident to us,” Guevarra’s said in a statement.
“We look forward to resolving this, and to welcoming customers to our restaurant again soon,” it added.
The restaurant’s management said that its temporary closure, which began yesterday, will allow them to further investigate the incident and proceed to a more thorough series of tests.
Moving forward, Guevarra’s said they will also keep their commitment to see through the discussion with their concerned customers to resolve this matter.
“We assure the public of our platforms and the public that Guevarra’s always upholds only the highest standards in food quality and service for all of our guests,” they further said.
Owned by famous chef Roland Laudico, the restaurant is located at P. Guevarra St. corner Argonne St., Addition Hills, San Juan City.
Guevarra’s will resume operations on September 12.
