Days after a man was fined in Australia after he defied all restrictions to eat his favourite butter chicken, a restaurant has launched an online campaign to find him to offer some free meals.
“Guys, help! We need to find Mr Butter Chicken…Did anyone get a lead? We want to deliver him a few curries to soften the blow. All we know is that he lives in Werribee, he got fined $1,652.00,” read the post on the official Instagram page of ‘Tonka’ a restaurant in Melbourne.
At a time when a few cities in Australia are seeing a renewed surge in Covid-19 cases, especially Melbourne, which has been put under a lockdown, a man defied all restrictions and travelled 30 km just to eat his favourite butter chicken.
The Victorian man was caught travelling from Werribee to Melbourne’s CBD when he was on his way to pick up the dish.
According to a SkyNews report, the man drove over 30 km to pick the special dish cooked at a particular restaurant and was fined $1652 (Rs. 1,23,809) for breaching the rules.
While the craving surely left the man with a dent in his pocket, netizens are quite intrigued by the bizarre incident, with many wondering what was so special in the dish.
There have been a few food related breaches … the KFC party and the guy that travelled all the way to the CBD for his butter chicken … maybe a Melbourne thing!!😉 https://t.co/nPvlAWdsfQ
