Have you ever bought some food, only to find the portion wasn’t nearly as satisfying as you might have imagined?
This Reddit user has probably trumped you, after ordering a €6 (£5.40) salad and being presented with a chopped up tomato with a few slivers of onion on top.
Tourist Gandi14 was visiting the German island of Amrum when they ordered the dish ‘after a long mudflat hiking tour.’
The seaside resort is popular with tourists, and is one of the smallest islands off Germany at just 20km wide.
Posting on the subreddit sh*ttyfoodporn, they shared a picture of the disappointing meal, where they and others were understandably bemused.
One commenter wrote: ‘Jeez. Not even a bit if salt and pepper. That’s rough,’ while another added ‘That salad is sadder than my life.’
Many questioned what was actually on the menu, asking whether the meal was labelled as just a tomato with a tiny bit of onion.
It isn’t the first time a tourist was overcharged for their food, with holiday resorts reported to be overcharging customers in the wake of coronavirus.
One holidaymaker was charged £47 for a doner kebab and £7.24 for a coffee at a beach bar in Bodrum.
Similarly, a Mykonos restaurant was criticised for charging an American solider and his friends €836 (£740) for a modest lunch including €98.50 (£86.96) per serving of calamari.
While this is much more severe than the tomato served to this customer, it represents a similar style of overpromising and underdelivering to tourists,
