    >>Restaurant SHUT DOWN! A popular Asian/Chinese restaurant bistro here in
    Atlanta was closed down this morning after authorities received a tip
    that the owner was accepting shipments of rats and mice from a vendor to
    prepare in his dishes. The owner and his wife were arrested early this
    morning and charges are not known at this time. After a full search of
    the kitchen, authorities found, packaged rats, mice, kittens, puppies
    and a large frozen hawk. The restaurant is a popular gathering spot for
    local celebrities such as Whitney Houston and husband Bobby Brown,
    Jermaine Dupree, Janet Jackson, Usher, Monica, Puffy, TI, Ludacris, Lil
    Jon, Toni Braxton, TLC and others. The restaurant has locations off
    Peachtree Road and Alpharetta near North Pointe Mall.

    Page 2 at the bottom...reads
    Rats a la Carte
    The latest gross-out food email going around involves a Chinese restaurant in Atlanta supposedly caught accepting shipments of rats and mice. These rats would, I guess, be served to people who enjoy rodents as a delicacy. Some photos accompany the email (rats1, rats2, rats3).

    After a full search of the kitchen, authorities found, packaged rats, mice, kittens, puppies and a large frozen hawk... The restaurant has locations off Peachtree Road and Alpharetta near North Pointe Mall.

    I tried googling for chinese restaurants located on Peachtree Road in Atlanta and came up with a few of them. But needlessly, since David Emery has already debunked this email by doing a news search and confirming that there have been no recent reports of rat-accepting restaurants in Atlanta. Plus, the photos come from a store that sells packaged rats for feeding snakes.

    This is actually funny, it seems every place has their suspicions about Chinese Take Out. When I was visiting my in-laws in Spain last year, we went to a Chinese Food place. My brother in-law also complained about never seeing them take out garbage. Even worse in Spain the biggest scandal concerning Chinese citizens of the country is that they don't bury their dead in the local cemetaries! Some people even speculate they put their deceased in the food (with is highly doubtful). Still this mystery has been the subject of many Spanish newsreports. The Chinese community in Spain (a small industrious community) is pretty secretive, and invites many rumors as a result!
