A Cleveland woman went viral on TikTok after eating an ordinary chicken salad at the 81st Street Deli.
It all started when the deli owner asked regular customer Tanisha Godfrey to eat a chicken salad for TikTok.
“Y’all better come up here and get one of these,” she says in the video.
The original TikTok video has been viewed more than 11 million times.
People drive from other states for the world famous chicken salad. The line is out the door and around the corner.
The viral video got the attention of pop singer Lizzo and actress Tia Mowry.
Now Tanisha is Internet famous and giving interviews to local media outlets.
“It’s different. It just happened overnight,” she told Fox8 News. “I literally just went in, just got off of work. I was hungry, I asked them, ‘could I get a salad’, and we did a TikTok,” she said.
Now the woman dubbed “Mrs. Chicken Salad” hopes to promote other Cleveland-area restaurants as a full-time gig.
“What I hope to do, I want to just go to different restaurants in Cleveland, around my neighborhood,” she said. “I did one yesterday, Momo’s on 185th, and went live and was tasting the food, and it was awesome. I had like 30,000 people watching.”
