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.”

nothing would make me happier than to see this place sued out of existence. crappy, cheap food, terrible service, and some of the biggest asses ever that own it. and if they actually do have cameras in the kitchen, that must be a new development, because they sure didn't when i was there, and i doubt the cheap-ass owners would actually pay to install them.

That's disgusting. She should sue and the chef or responsible party should be fired. And what does her getting a lawyer have to do with her financial situation? It's about her righting a wrong that was done to her, like we would all do if it was us.

My children and i were there in 2008 having nachos when my son started to eat and to his surprise he bit into a toothpick. We started looking through the nachos to find 20 or more broken toothpicks.There response was to depose of nachos and offer us free drinks. Never ever go to this restaurant.

Yep    

Someone spit their gum into her salad on purpose. There is no way that a chewed piece of gum just accidentally ends up in a person's salad.
