Buddha was not a vegetarian?

quoting from the webpage

That was from the chapter titled “Gem in the Lotus”, which is what Eraly calls Buddha. He continues to mention that Buddha himself was a non-vegetarian. On his way to Kushinara, Buddha was resting at a place called Pava and one of his devotees, a metalsmith of the name Cunda invited Buddha for a meal.
There sitting the Exalted One called to Cunda and said: “Cunda, as to that fat hog’s flesh which you have prepared, serve me with it, but serve the brethren with whatsoever food both soft and hard, you have prepared”

Buddha, it seems had a weakness for pork—-his favourite food, says Milinda-panha, was “tender boar’s flesh, and rice porridge boiled in milk”
