Poland: ‘Cervical cancer’ to order

2013-05-06 00:00

A BRITISH tourist has complained after finding “cervical cancer with chips” on the menu at a restaurant in Poland.

Owen Durray (32), of Kent, found “Cervical cancer served on beetroot carpaccio” being offered at Bee Jays restaurant in Poznan.

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 spokesperson 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.”
