Ancient snack bar excavated in Pompeii

Archaeologists have found a snack bar during excavations in Pompeii that is surprisingly well preserved. Rooster on a stick or lamb to go instead of burgers and fries - in the ancient city of Pompeii, fast food was apparently also eaten, but not the same dishes as we do today. The reason for this assumption is a find by archaeologists. The researchers have excavated an exceptionally well-preserved street restaurant: a colourfully painted counter and imprints of food.

In clay pots, archaeologists also discovered duck bones and remains of pigs, goats, fish and snails that may have been cooked together. The findings are expected to provide information about eating habits in Pompeii at the time of the disaster in 79 AD.
