Vegetarian cried all night after eating curry with ‘lumps of chicken in it’

A animal rights campaigner was left in tears after tucking into a curry with pieces of chicken in it.

Vegetarian Tania Baxter, 45, from Melton Constable, Norfolk, has been scarred for life after ordering a veggie curry at her local, only to discover she'd been served chicken.

The mum, who has been meat free for ten years now claims she will never get over it, or eat Indian food again.

Tania ordered her family a takeaway from the Melton Spice restaurant on Friday evening.

Despite being told the dish was veggie, as soon as she took a mouthful she had to spit it back out.

Tania said: "I knew instantly the texture in my teeth was meat, so I spat it out straight away.

"Then I looked through the rest of the curry and saw these same pieces of chicken."

Despite phoning the takeaway to complain and being promised a new dish, Tania was disappointed she didn't receive an apology and says she stayed up all night crying.

Tania added: "There was no remorse, no apology. He said to me three times 'come back and I'll make you another curry', but that wasn't the point.

"The whole experience was completely devastating and I was in tears all night.

"My 12-year-old daughter is not a vegetarian but she was so upset, she didn't eat her own dinner."

Her eldest daughter went to the restaurant to demand an explanation, but the response she received was still not enough for Tania.
