menu booboos

Cafe in The Causeway, Melbourne. October 2007

It was so bad I had to take a photo.

Sadly didn't have a handy digital on me in the mid-90's when at Joe's Garage (Fitzroy) I saw the new waitress diligently chalking up the specials board. The fish du jour...
"Barramundi marinated in prozac"

I kid you not!

Have you got a favourite menu booboo?

i've been meaning to keep a tab on this sort of thing in greece, where we get menu bombs (not just booboos) all the time!

One I can remember from Asia that made me smile is: "dlied aplicots".

Speaking of Provinshall, although not at a restaurant, I did see a sign that said "Pervential French Furniture." Gosh, we're going to forget how it's actually spelled if we keep this up.

Oh, but barramundi marinated in prozac makes for such a pleasant dining experience.

'Mad Crab' (instead of 'mud') at the sadly-departed red velvet-curtained Chinese restaurant on Swanston Street near Lonsdale. Forget its name but its menu was full of howlers like that. Kept us amused while waiting every time.
