Um, I’ll admit I laughed reading this but I’m suspicious when so many jokes appear on a single menu. Does this look photoshopped to anyone else? It looks like the reflection on the glass is showing in front of the kanji on the left but not changing the shades of the lettering on the right.

Maybe I’m just too skeptical

The Wu Dan blasting powder always gives me heartburn.

^ I don’t think it’s a Photoshop. A lot of legitimate restaurant Engrish exists, and some examples are even crazier than this. Also, the impression of no reflection is given because the letters are white. Some reflection is visible in the darkest parts.

The “Wu Dan Blasting Powder” is Sichuan Chilies.
“Third-like Explosion” is triple the dose.

And the “It Seems Honey” are Sichuan Peppercorns…Seems like honey, but you can’t tell ’cause your tongue’s too danged NUMB to be able to know for sure!

It seems, honey, that Culiu is the wood-to-be… as long as Wu Dan doesn’t come with his blasting powder

Coke = probably over hot coals, i’e some sort of barbecue. Wu Dan Blasting Powder is a different bottle of pop entirely.

Actually Tiger Woods appears the best person to ask these days about “hidden honey”.

eh….I’m not quite sure what I would get in those dishes even though I can read the Chinese. And the translations they put for the fancy dish names are not that much off literally.

“Barbeque Speculation” – Is that like a credit crunch barbeque or something?

Teacher: “You are not yet worthy of the secret of the ‘Wu Dan Blasting Powder’ young master…”

Pupil: “When will I be ready master? When will I know?”

Teacher: “When you first discover the true nature of that which ‘seems honey like’. Only then will you be ready for Wu Dan!

It seems honey, but here’s a little warning: it might be oil, or maybe even poison!
