It seems someone has brought to Beijing‘s attention that within just a few weeks, the masses will descend on their fair city – and they’re going to want to eat something. More specifically, something they can understand. Thus, the government has made available to all restaurants, an English translation service for a wide variety of popular dishes.
And now, for your culinary and linguistic pleasure, tonight’s specials, old and new:
Husband and wife’s lung slice
Beef and ox tripe in chili sauce
Bean curd made by a pock-marked woman
Chicken without sexual life
(Yes, those are the real translations. No one is that creative at 8.30 in the morning.)
