However, Costco's "treasure of the town store" was recently criticized by a Michelin-starred Asian chef!

David Chang is the founder of Momofuku, a Michelin-starred restaurant in New York.

In a talk show in January, David Chang said bluntly: "I think the roast chicken sold by Costco isMost Disgusting Roast Chicken, they are not bad, because this roast chicken is not even seasoned in any way...”

"The nitrates and all that stuff they inject into roast chicken makes it even more disgusting when it cools overnight..."

Costco lovers from all over the country flocked to "fight back"👇

Many netizens said: Michelin chefs who serve the rich are not qualified to judge the chicken eaten by ordinary people.

Some netizens also said: This Michelin chef's restaurant can sell a quarter of a chicken for a high price of $300, but he complains about a whole roast chicken for $5, which is really funny!

But in fact, apart from complaining about the bad taste of roast chicken, David is still very satisfied with other products of Costco. He praised the frozen lobster tail and beef brisket by real name.

"$49 for a brisket is very reasonable, and if you buy a similar brisket at Whole Foods, you're paying $150."

Later, because I fell in love with Japanese ramen, after returning to New York, I went to the French Culinary Institute to attend classes for half a year, and then went to the famous Craft and Cafe Boulud as apprentices. After returning to Japan to study for half a year, I opened a shop and rushed to "Michelin two stars". good grades.
