When touring overseas, it is at all times good to see eating places serving the meals you’d usually eat again residence. It reminds you of how small this world actually is, since you may get consolation meals regardless of the place you might be.

Nevertheless, not all meals is created equal. With regards to style, and the best way meals is introduced, some individuals do it nice, whereas others depart a lot to be desired.

In a sequence of pictures posted on Fb, Pang shares his weird go to to a Beijing restaurant known as Borderless, claiming to serve Singaporean meals. Its ground workers are even wearing clothes that appear like kebaya, famously worn by Singapore Airways flight attendants.

Whereas we cannot hassle contemplating the legality of this little gimmick, what we are able to take a look at is the menu. When you’re simply specializing in the meals pictures within the menu, the whole lot seems fairly first rate. However whenever you modify your gaze to their names, that is the place issues get a bit of.. bizarre?

After all, we won’t topic our command of the English language on individuals who most likely do not converse it fluently (if in any respect). Let’s simply say, not even the translator they used was ok to make all this make sense.

The examples you simply noticed aren’t that unhealthy, merely poor spell-checking at most. When you’re already aware of the meals, it is not exhausting to guess. Nevertheless, it is the opposite objects on the menu that make you query simply the place (and the way) issues went flawed with the interpretation.

All jokes apart, it is unclear whether or not the meals right here tastes any good. If the pictures are of any indication, they in all probability do style first rate. In keeping with Pang, the restaurant is run and managed by a Chinese language nationwide.
