An employee of a long-standing bun cha (rice noodles with grilled pork and meatballs) eatery in Hanoi was filmed steeping several pieces of meat in a jet-black liquid.

The video, which has been spreading across social media since Wednesday, shows the woman soaking the meat in a mixture of coal, fat, and dishwater.

“I wanted to vomit when I saw her wash the meat in the mixture after it fell into a pile of ash," according to a Facebook post. 

“It looked like dishwater and fat from roasted meat mixed with coal."

The bun cha eatery in question has been operating on Quoc Tu Giam Street in Van Mieu Ward, Dong Da District, Hanoi for decades.

G., the son of the eatery owner, said that the situation occurred several days earlier when the eatery was quite busy and that the mixture was nothing more than fat from roasted meat.

Though the restaurant normally discards fat, the employee used it to remove a bit of ash after a piece of meat fell, G. explained, adding that this is not a typical procedure at the restaurant.

A leader of the administration in Van Mieu Ward told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that ward officials visited the eatery right after receiving reports of the case and will visit it again for an inspection on Thursday.
