Honestly my husband and I have eaten there a few times and we have always been accepting of the quality of food, unfortunately today is unbelievably different. Lucky for my husband he had a chicken Cuban and I had a pollo and pork tropichop ( first time … See More
I didn't get grilled chicken). It's now currently 2am, I'm afraid to leave the bathroom at all that's how bad this is. Honestly I can't remember ever being this ill. It began around 45 mins after I ate my stomach began to cramp and I felt rumbles. Within 10 minutes of that I was fleeing to the closest bathroom and I have been in tears because not only is it explosive diarrhea but I feel like I'm going to vomit at any moment and this is like labor type cramp pain! I don't know what is happening! I have no allergies to anything! I've eaten all types of food and my husband is Puerto Rican so Hispanic food is absolutely nothing new to me! I'm really concerned since it's been 6 constant hours of this nightmare already! I can't drink anything or hold anything down ( I've tried and I immediately began throwing up.) There is literally nothing else I can even remotely think of to explain this other than the food. I would greatly appreciate to know if this has happened to anyone else recently from this restaurant and if I need to seek medical attention rather than trying to wait this out. If that is even possible. (Added) I literally am sitting on my bathroom floor in the middle of the night in immeasurable pain if you require a receipt or photos of the left container I can provide that for you at a later time as it's simply not a option at this moment.) That being said I only ate about a third of a regular size tropichop bowl and it's this bad which is concerning me as why it's this bad when I didn't even eat a large amount of whichever item In the bowl was not right. Want to clarify how disturbing this is.  | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Other, Cramps

I ate a regular tropichop with chicken, rice and lettuce, and some veggies twice this past week and have been feeling ill ever since. Diarrhea and constant nausea. It only seems to happen if I eat something but it’s going on day 4 now. Nothing severe, but super stretched out symptoms.  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea
