A restaurant in Kilmarnock, Scotland claimed to have made history by becoming the first eatery in the country to serve up aardvark.
The restaurant, named Indian Accent, added an intriguing item to their menu on Wednesday — the Spicy Aardvark Pizza, with price ranging between £6.50 and £11.50 ($8.50 – $13.50).
Anser Anton, Indian Accent’s head chef told The Daily Record that the dish was made with green chilies, spicy chicken, lamb mince and of the main ingredient — aardvark.
It was created to offer patrons something “different and unique”, added Anton.
“It was really bizarre,” the customer told MailOnline. “A woman in a white coat and a hairnet said she was an inspector and wanted to confront the restaurant on the aardvark pizza.
“She said she needed to know where it was from and if they had documentation.
“The staff member was saying it was only called an aardvark pizza, there wasn’t actually any aardvark in it. He said it was just spicy mince, chicken and lamb,” added the customer.
Aardvarks are usually found in Africa, so when they come to the UK, under UK bushmeat import legislation, selling it requires a specific license.
The East Ayrshire Council launched an investigation into the business to confirm whether it is operating within the law.
“Officers will be fully investigating this matter to ensure that the restaurant owner is complying with all relevant legislation,” a spokesperson for the council said.
