Christina Milian got a little something extra at an L.A. restaurant last week ... after she took a bite of her Kobe beef salad ... and allegedly got a mouthful of ABC gum.

Sources close to Christina tell TMZ ... she was out to dinner at Mexicali restaurant in Studio City ... and halfway through her salad, she felt a weird, chewy substance in her mouth.

Christina spit it out, and looked in horror as she eyed a giant wad of chewed gum. She then made a beeline for the bathroom and threw up.

We're told the restaurant comped her meal. But Christina is still freaked out about what happened, and filed a complaint with the L.A. Department of Health.

TMZ spoke with a rep for the Dept., who confirmed a complaint was indeed filed.

Christina tells TMZ, she's lookin' for a lawyer, but says, "The most important thing to me is to make sure my health is okay. Ever since the incident I have not eaten out."

11:21 AM: Mexicali owner Allen Ravert tells TMZ, “We have been here for over 17 years and always had an A rating from the health department ... We have cameras in our kitchen and didn’t see anything."

Alan adds, "Our cooks don’t chew gum. Whether there was gum in [Christina's salad] or not I couldn’t say – I never saw it.”

sounds like a made up story to me. Maybe her own gum fell in her salad. Soon we'll see her walking around with blisters and she'll blame it on the restaurant.

She should have sang that her song
"Pick it up slow
Roll it all around
blow a bubble Pop pop pop that thing"

Ew. How disgusting. I'd be so grossed out. When you eat out, you take a risk. For one you don't know who is preparing your food and if they washed their hands. Sometimes they don't. I ordered pizza from this big chain and the person who took my order and my cash then proceeded to make my pizza. Without washing his hands!!! I was so grossed out, mad, I didn't know what to do. I stared him down the whole time and he didn't even know why. I should have just walked out but I didn't want to be rude. Stupid me. After that incident I went back and if that person was there, I'd see him wash his hands. Maybe it was my cold icy stare? Who knows. I'd rather just cook for myself. I know my hands are clean bc I wash them. With soap.

She's not being a ***** or a drama queen. She is spreading the message and awareness of what happened. It is disgusting... what if the person that was chewing the gum has herpies or something worse? It was in someone's mouth and in her food and in her mouth...I find that very disturbing

All the dummies who say get over it or stop being a drama queen are not only overweight greedy pigs but are just stupid as hell. Why should she ignore such a gross and totally uncalled for scenario? So its just ok to do gross crap like that? That's why we get crap like e-coli and the flu. Not only that but how many of you hypocrites wouldn't run to a lawyer after something like that? Geez some of you people need education.
