Restaurant offers cancer - with chips

Menu /Europics

A British tourist has complained after finding 'cervical cancer with chips' on the menu at a restaurant in Poland.

Owen Durray, 32, from Kent, found 'Cervical cancer served on beetroot carpaccio' being offered at the Bee Jays restaurant in Poznan.

Mr Durray said: "I wanted something fishy but I didn't expect this.

"No one I know has had cervical cancer but I can imagine that if it had been seen by somebody else they might have been well upset. As it was I quickly lost my appetite, the meaning doesn't exactly encourage you to order anything does it?"

A spokesman for the restaurant said: "This was a mistake in translation.

"The food item was for crayfish and somehow that got turned into Cervical Cancer. We will be having a word with our translator.

"We apologise if we have offended anyone."
