Adele added that she was trying to help others from experiencing the same traumatic experience. "The cafe is kinda popular though... I’m just trying to help people to avoid places like that," she wrote in her post.
She elaborated more on the experience in the Instagram post. "Its an awful feeling, it’s not a fly or a bug it’s a fucking big fat rat boiling in the soup pot, which means my friend was not the only who had a chance to try it," wrote Adele.

According to a Redditor, the restaurant has been deleting and limiting comments on their social media about the rat. "Oh, no. They are done for," wrote Redditor victoria-n. "They’re actively deleting and limiting comments regarding the rat. It wasn’t just in this bowl, the rat was simmered in an entire batch".
They added, "A lot of people ate this rat soup without knowing it. These poor souls just had a nice serving of the little guy. I find it really unbelievable that NO ONE noticed a large chunk of something with laddling the chowder into the bread bowl. That is a FULL BOILED RAT". Their comment received 200 points.
Another Redditor confirmed that the restaurant was deleting comments about the rat incident. "I just tweeted about it and they blocked me. It's like 5 in the morning," commented HaileyHeartless. They updated the comment later and wrote, "Edit: seeing them delete comments and block people on social media, you can bet your ass they're going to lawyer up at 8am".
Many more people commented on the Reddit thread their disbelief and disdain that a dead rat was actually found in someone's meal at this Vancouver restaurant.
