EMINEM fans are left furious On takeaway pasta prices at Mom’s Spaghetti at her new Detroit restaurant.
The menu, which has only four items, lists spaghetti with meatballs for $12 a bar.
Other takeaway dishes at his hometown restaurant include vegetarian spaghetti for $14 and a spaghetti sandwich for $11.
Fans were seen queuing outside a downtown Detroit restaurant hours before it opened on Wednesday.
And although Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, is receiving widely high praise for pasta dishes, the price left a bad taste in the mouths of some thrifty fans.
Posting on Twitter, one wrote: “$12. For spaghetti in Detroit? Goddam. This would be life changing for the better.”
Another wrote: “$12 for meatballs, are they autographed? No offense Marshall but thanks to Biden no one has $12 to spend on meatballs.”
One of the rapper’s most famous songs from the 2002 blockbuster “8 Mile” is the name Moms Spaghetti in the opening song “Lose Yourself.”
“Lose Yourself” won Mathers an Oscar in 2003, but did not attend the ceremony because he later admitted in an interview that he didn’t believe he had a chance to win.
