GOLDEN VALLEY, MN. — Local Messianic man Morris Ian asked his server at Applebee’s hard-hitting kashrut questions before placing his order Thursday.
According to reports, Ian asked the restaurant worker, “Do your hamburger buns have L-cysteine?” noting that it can be made with human hair, which if you think about it, is technically cannibalism. “I only eat what the Bible says is clean in the book of Leviticus,” Ian remarked.
The employee deferred to her manager, who brought the bun package so that Ian could examine the ingredients himself. After thoroughly inspecting the box, Ian agreed to order the Mushroom Swiss Burger, since it was the only one without bacon.
