Kanto Freestyle Breakfast BGC closed last Monday for cleaning after a netizen posted a disturbing video on Twitter.
The video showed a rat scurrying around the restaurant’s kitchen while the staff were taking orders.
The netizen wrote: “I had a hard time concentrating on my order cuz there were RATS running around the counter at Kanto Freestyle Breakfast BGC It even entered the coffee machine.”

Other netizens were quick to express their disappointment and said that this should be addressed properly.
As far as I remember, bawal ilagay ang trash can sa tabi ng preparation table. Also, there won’t be pests if the establishment cleans thoroughly regularly. It may not affect the food directly kung sanay na sila sa setup na ganiyan but it will indirectly or it will eventually. https://t.co/YDGAUWCYrk

I can’t with some replies here. Hindi ba ito public concern??? I eat here and I thank OP for posting this. Consequence ng establishment kung mag-viral to. At hello, nakita ng customer… IMPOSIBLENG the staff didn’t know about it na buong araw nasa kitchen. https://t.co/NtFicSxHhH

One pointed out the implications of posting the video online.
I get it. this is great, they got called out online, ok. but ppl not working in the service industry wont understand how harmful this is to the STAFF, not the boss like when I say STAFF the MINIMUM WAGE PEOPLE SERVING UR FOOD. https://t.co/JWoNlQsabe

However, the majority agreed that this is something the public and the restaurant customers should know about.

bakit parang kasalanan pa ni Johan that he posted this— and why may moral obligation na kasama sa usapan?
Just weeks ago, may mga na food poison sa Pobla after eating oysters. Are we gonna wait for that to happen to? https://t.co/POcOvb7IqU

Kanto Freestyle has yet to release a statement to address the issue aside from the advisory that the branch would hold a general cleaning.
