Is this a story of an unethical restauranteur abusing the trust of his customers, or is it the sorry tale of a gastronomical underdog who had a stroke of entrepreneurial brilliance? Earlier this year a restaurant owner in Xi’an, China, was discovered to have been adding opiates to his noodles so that his regular customers would become addicted to them.

Well, it was ‘something new’. Amid an understandably furious public outcry, Carter-Brooks has defended the decision, saying that the baby was ‘awake and well-secured’ and ‘covered by Christ’.
