A man in Taiwan braved the wrath of opposing street gangs for a full 10 minutes at a Keelung City restaurant earlier this year… because he wanted to finish his plate of noodles.
The video, which has only recently come to light, shows the man calmly eating his noodles as the gang members – some of whom are carrying weapons – argue across the table he is sitting at.
Shanghaiist reports: “According to the brave man, he ‘risked his life’ to finish the noodles because he did not want to waste the food, which was only delivered to him shortly before the fight broke out.”
The argument eventually descended into a brawl during which a number of people were injured. The noodle-eating man was fine.
