at least it got the crunchy/crispy bit right :D


what are you using googletranslate for something so simple for, anyway?
I just stick the whole menu through it and then do corrections. Lazy - I know.

two most memorable, were from Hong Kong and had nothing to do with Google.

One was outside a restaurant in Kowloon, advertising the day's special "deep fried carp"

Unfortunately, they got the "A" and the "R" reversed

The other was when a carpark company sent out leaflets to everyone in HK annoucing the introduction of their new way of paying for parking

"Allow us to introduce you to our new revolting way of paying for parking your car"

I think it was meant to be revoluntary, but the chaos it caused( you could only get in or out, if you had a certain type credit card)

Net result: for a week it was revolting:ranger:

Look what it did to my Battered Cod:mad:



:eek:
Post of the month!

I was offered steamed c**p in China. I don't know if that would've been tastier than the deep fried variety.

I also loved (in the nicest possible way) 'rape, fishermen's style'.

A restaurant in Campello in the English translation of their menu had 'Deep Fried Squid'. Unfortunately instead of the final 'd' they had a 't' :D
