'Grilled Moroccan Aborigine and rocket salad' on Australian hotel menu

An Australian hotel has apologised after it offered a "grilled Moroccan Aborigine and rocket salad" for lunch.

Australian journalist Liz Foschia tweeted a picture of the dish on offer at the Canberra Hyatt Hotel's lunch buffet.

A response from the hotel's international Twitter account said it was "definitely a unique menu option".

"Hope it's as good as it is complicated :) Have a fabulous day at Hyatt Canberra."

The dish is understood to have been a spellcheck error, meant to read "aubergine and rocket salad".

The hotel's buffet lunches are changed every day and the label was promptly removed.

The hotel later apologised in a statement.

"Hyatt Hotel Canberra in sincerely sorry that one of today's salads was mislabelled and we deeply apologise for any offence caused. Hyatt Hotel is a multi-cultural company and an equal opportunity employer."
