After complaining to restaurant staff at Ed’s Easy Diner, in Gateshead, the anonymous customer claimed he was told the meal would be on the house A disgusted burger bar customer got more than he bargained for while tucking into what he thought was a delicious cheeseburger. The 28-year-old, who didn't want to be named, was chowing down on a meaty treat when he was confronted by "something from a nightmare". A wriggling caterpillar crawled out from the lettuce nestled in between the beef and bread, reports the Newcastle Chronicle. After complaining to restaurant staff at Ed’s Easy Diner, in Gateshead MetroCentre, he claimed he was told the meal would be on the house. He said: “I put the burger down for a drink and there was something funny. “I looked down and I saw a caterpillar crawling out of the burger. “I was sick later that evening. I just couldn’t believe it, it was like something from a nightmare.” The video shows the caterpillar slowly emerging from lettuce in the burger. The following day the man’s partner contacted the restaurant but said he received no response so her father intervened. The man has now vowed never to return to the chain. He added: “I was offered a £50 voucher and £100 to the charity of my choice but I’m never going to eat there again. “I’d rather they gave £150 to charity, I’ve not thought which yet but possibly a wildlife one.” A spokesman for Ed’s Easy Diner said: “This was an unfortunate but isolated incident at our diner in Gateshead. “We took immediate steps to resolve the problem and are confident the diner is back to our usual exacting standards. “All our lettuce leaves are washed and sanitised individually. "We invest considerable time and resource in maintaining the highest possible food hygiene standards and have an excellent track record.”
