Hm, I speak both English and Russian and I see no connection whatsoever between the two, on both dishes. When I saw “squirrel” (before seeing the actual picture), I thought “maybe something Russian about proteins” (protein is belok and squirrel is belka, automatic translators often mix those two up). But when the picture came up I was just confused. The 051 dish is “Fried carp without bones”. No mentioning of sweet and sour sauce, neither of a sqiurrel or something that could be mistranslated as a squirrel. The 052 dish is “Hot (as in taste, not as in temperature) fish… Read more »

Actually this is correct. It is a traditional dish from Suzhou, Jiangsu. Carp was a fish not intended to be eaten by “regular” people, only by the emperor. A chef cut up the fish to represent a squirrel and therefore disguising the carp.
