It never fails to crack me up the way the Mainland translates 干 as f*ck, because the simplified character is used as the cuss word. 乾 is the traditional character, and as it’s used on the menu, it should mean “dry”. Ditto for translating 粥 as “gruel” instead of the more acceptable “porridge” – gee, that’s appetizing. Not. 多士 (duo shi) is transliteration of “toast” (here in Taiwan it’s 土司 tu si). Three texts cure 三文治 is transliteration of “sandwich” (san wen zhi – in Taiwan san ming zhi). And that “freeze” should be a simple “cold”. Sheesh. Guess I… Read more »

For those who do not understand Chinese, let me explain how the weird name “many private” comes about. It actually means toast. Toast originated from the west. There is no exact name for it in the Chinese language. The Chinese call it “Tuo Sze” But when they tried to translate “Tuo Sze” into English, they translated the two words separately. “Tuo” in Chinese means many, “Sze” means private (as in private Benjamin). Hence, “toast “becomes “many private” LOL

I like the one where it says “frying an egg” on the left, and then also says “frying an egg” on the right…and the chinese characters are EXACTLY the same!!!

@Pete: It’s because those are set meals that contain 3 items each. The last two both offer fried eggs. 🙂

Hot/freeze the duck? Couldn’t we just put him in a round room and tell him to pee in the corner

The problem is they probably asked Chinese who speaks no English to translate and they just used google translate or something. Most likely they had a waiter or an administrative staff (who speaks no English) do the translation because they can do it for free.

Be wary, foreign travelers, of what frying an egg you choose. One leads to deliciousness, the other leads to DISASTER! (You’re fxcked to fry the cow river, in other words)

“frying an egg”
I’m sorry, I just can’t get over the lack of information on this. What next? “Bringing you a glass of water” “Ladling a bowl of soup” “folding a napkin”
Picture me “Leaving a tip”

Ovaltine is a drink you can get it in England, basically its a cocoa / chocolate drink that you can serve either hot or cold, perish the thought that they never served up Horlicks on that menu.

Proud Australian. Word of our fresh to squeeze juice has clearly traveled far along the cow feck river of powder to the distant land of many privates! If only the juice bars of Sydney knew the secret of Sydney juice.

In seriousness I’m still unclear about “good the gram” or what’s in river powder and cow river. I’m also curious about silk frying and what a vegetarian’s supposed to have for breakfast!

Wholey clap! This must be to, uh, milk tourists, because $18 for breakfast is expensive in and of itself. I hope they don’t mean each ITEM…

As a Chinese, I can tell that it’s direct chinese translation, word for word. No wonder the sentence structure really cmi.

While gruel, salty egg
It´s all been previously checked for lead
So don´t worry, you won´t end up dead

In this chinese restaurant; the ham fries the egg
Wouldn´t you like to go to Mcdonald´s instead?
I would squeeze the juice of Sidney for a coke and some bread

It´s time to pay up, you begin to feel dread
What the hell is this? Something must have been misread
Everything costs 18 dollars, no matter how much you beg.

How much extra is it to butter a general?
OK, bring me a general.
Oh, and I MUST try the powdered river. Us western barbarians have not yet learned to turn water into powder, tho we do have Tang–or is that Chinese, too?

Give these Americans some dishwater and tell them it’s freshly squeezed watermelon juice, or re-constituted powdered river.
