Edinburgh: Everybody knows that times are tough, and business are cutting corners to survive in the challenging economic conditions. Even so, one has to wonder just how bad things are when a patron at a cafe at Edinburgh Airport paid US$5 and received this pitiful roll, with a microscopic piece of bacon and speck of egg.
Various reports have explained that a customer purchased the baby-sized snack from the EAT cafe at Edinburgh Airport, hoping for something to fill his stomach before an early-morning flight. Unluckily for him, the chef who prepared this sandwich wasn’t the generous type, and the patron took to social media to share what most be one of the most shameful culinary moments in recent history. Some of the customer’s followers on Facebook labelled the egg more likely to have been laid by a hummingbird, rather than a chicken, while others mentioned the bacon could have been cured from a micro pig rather than a fully-grown variety.
The customer decided to remain anonymous, and reportedly mentioned that they didn’t seek a refund as they figured it was just standard airport food – which in my experience is generally overpriced and fairly unappealing. This fellow’s breakfast is setting the bar pretty low, though! Edinburgh Airport has apparently come out and said it will address the customer’s complain with EAT, while the cafe in question is trying to track down the patron to offer compensation, hopefully in the form of a more substantial meal.
