Lebanese expressed mixed reactions Wednesday as the country continued to reel from the shock of being told that some of its most popular restaurants were serving contaminated food.Roadster, Kabaji, Hawa Chicken and McDonald's were among the Metn-based restaurants Abu Faour listed as having contaminated products. Although neither the Roadster Diner nor the Kababji in Jal al-Dib were packed Wednesday afternoon, both had customers. At the Roadster Diner in Jal al-Dib, an employee, speaking anonymously because he wasn't authorized to speak to the media, said that business was normal thanks to the restaurant's loyal fan base.Another employee told The Daily Star that he had been on a high protein diet for three years and regularly ate Roadster's chicken breast – the product Abu Faour claimed was bad.However, Baho said he had seen the cleanliness of the various restaurants in the area and was confident that Roadster's food was clean.The employee said that seeing as all Roadster Diners used the same equipment and products, it didn't make sense that the branch in Jal al-Dib was cited but not other branches outside of Beirut, such as Jounieh.
