- What's the worst thing you've found in your dinner?
In a school ‘meal’ in the seventies I stumbled across a two pence sized piece of green glass in a heap of boiled cabbage. I was stunned but didn’t say anything to anyone, simply moved it to the side of my plate and sheepishly carried on eating.
Also, once found this weird worm at the bottom of a bottle of tequila…Posted 3 years agojekkylMember
Wedding anniversary meal with a couple with whom we share our wedding anniversary, expensive Thai Restaurant, in one of the curries I found a long dark hair. I spotted it before anyone ate it, complained nicely along the lines of ‘I found this in the curry’ holding it up in finger and thumb so that others in the restaurant could see. We got 50% off the whole bill which included several bottles of wine, so we went home happy and sloshing.Posted 3 years agoir_banditoSubscriber
To be fair I had actually ordered a whole baked possum but quickly came to the conclusion that it was the most disgusting thing I’d ever tasted.Posted 3 years agowoody2000Subscriber
A piece of broken glass in some apple crumble from my (then) work canteen. Unfortunately I didn’t notice it, took a mouthful and said glass pierced the roof of my mouth and cut my tongue – thankfully I didn’t swallow it! It didn’t actually hurt all that much, I’d thought it was a bit of burnt sugar or just an overly crunchy bit of crumble topping – I got a hell of a shock when I spat it out into a napkin 🙁Posted 3 years agomudsharkMember
Four of us went to one of those upmarket burger places by The Clink in London. My mate found a piece of stiff wire in his burger, as he’s known for making a fuss it was amusing to watch him explode but by the time he’d finished we got all our food and beers for free so all very good.Posted 3 years agojimwMember
Another one with potentially more serious consequence was about 15 years ago in a local restaurant with a very good reputation.Posted 3 years ago
“Has the home made banoffi pie got chocolate in it? ” I ask.
“No ” says waitress
I take one large bite, clearly has chocolate in it so I spit it out.
I complain to waitress who brings manager over. ” i’ll check whats on the packet ” she says. Comes back, “oh yes, it has white chocolate in it”
When I explained I have a cocoa allergy and it could have caused me a real problem, the manager just shrugged and asked whether I would like some ice cream instead. She did not take it seriously and so I never went back.nickdaviesSubscriber
Made myself a ham salad sandwich to take to a work event a couple of months ago – given the 5am start i wasn’t paying much attention.
Whilst eating it really confused myself – i was sure i didn’t put a lump of stilton in there, but carried on regardless assuming id thrown in some nice stinky cheese and forgotten about it.
Next morning go to make second sandwich and actually looked at the butter. It was furrier than a rat’s backside and stunk…. 🙁Posted 3 years ago
