Restaurant under fire for adding ‘aardvark pizza’ to its menu

However whether or not the pizza really does contain meat from the nocturnal mammal is yet to be determined.

One customer who visited the restaurant on Wednesday claims the business backtracked on the ingredients after being confronted by an inspector.

Speaking to MailOnline, they explained: “It was really bizarre. A woman in a white coat and a hair net said she was an inspector and wanted more information 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.”

Native to Africa, aardvarks come under UK bushmeat import legislation, meaning those selling it require a specific licence to do so.

As such, East Ayrshire Council have launched an investigation into the business to discover whether it is operating within the law.

A spokesperson for the council said: “Officers will be fully investigating this matter to ensure that the restaurant owner is complying with all relevant legislation.”

MirrorOnline have contacted Indian Accent for comment on the pizza, but are yet to receive a response.
