When Malaysians say that food is serious business, they’re not kidding.
Recently, all hell broke loose in a restaurant at Jalan Tun Sambathan, Brickfields in Kuala Lumpur, last Sunday (28 Feb).
A swarm of “hangry” men were seen rioting after being denied service as they entered the eatery just minutes before closing time. According to FMT, police have detained the group which included five men. They were arrested in different parts of the city and Selangor.
When the riot happened, an onlooker managed to record the whole thing. Since then, it has become viral on social media platforms. The 2-minute-and-19-second video showed the men, aged between 19 and 23, throwing chairs, tables, bowls, food – basically anything they can get their hands on towards the eatery workers.

For now, Brickfields police chief Anuar Omar said the five men do not have criminal records and the case is being investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for rioting.
