Muslim diner horrified to discover he ate pork for first time after pub serves it in his side of chilli fries

h/t

Naz Ali, who had never eaten pig meat due to his religious beliefs, was dining with his family and friends at Farmer John’s in Sutton Coldfield.

Why wouldn’t you assume that this bucolic English pub was a pork-free zone?

Speaking with the Birmingham Mail, the 39-year-old truck driver admits he never asked staff what kind of meat was used in the dish and assumed it was chicken.

Mr Ali, who ordered a beef burger along with the side of fries, said he ate about a quarter of the dish before checking with the waitress.

He says when he complained staff apologised and gave the children in his party free desserts.

But the pub’s management claim they also waived the entire bill after Mr Ali complained, reports The Birmingham Mail.

Mr Ali said: “My friend said I should check what I was eating [after you’d eaten “a quarter” of it. Quick thinking there – Ed.] so I asked the waitress and at first she had no idea.

“Then she came back and said she was really, really sorry because it was pork.

“I had food in my mouth and I spat it out and went to the toilet, where I was sick. I felt degraded.”
