Now THAT is street food: San Francisco Chinese restaurant caught tenderizing frozen meat by slamming it on the sidewalk

Chef was filmed beating the meat on the street in the Sunnyside neighborhood

Captured on video outside Lucky River, a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco’s Sunnyside neighborhood, the chef appears to lift and slam two slabs of beef up and down onto the ground.

When a concerned inspector from the city’s health department arrived to question the apparently bemused staff, they simply said the man was attempting to tenderize the meat and ‘defrost’ it by beating it off the concrete.
