Have you ever walked into a restaurant for a meal only to have your hunger replaced by amusement or horror at seeing some ridiculous dishes on the menu? From misspelt words to phonetic spellings, here are some favourites!
Let’s hope you don’t find this one on the menu in a beach shack!
Some Indian meat dishes feature offal, but nodules? Really?! Here’s hoping your sense of humour keeps your nausea in check!
Before you reach for your phone to call PETA, take a deep breath and choose a crispy puff pastry with your favourite filling!
Don’t get too excited! As much as you might detest some humans, there’s no chance of cannibal cuisine being legalized in India anytime soon.
5. Dumb Biryani
This is an easy one to figure out, but to be fair to a non-native English speaker, if thumb is pronounced as ‘thum’, then dumb is spelt right, using the same logic.
6. Fresh Lassy
If you think this is the incorrect spelling of Lassie, don’t be too disappointed. The refreshingly thick sweet or savoury buttermilk will hit the spot.
7. Visitable Juice
It might make you wonder if there is a non-visitable kind, but play it safe and ask about the ingredients of the juice.
8. Ginger Beep
Genetically modified vegetables have not yet evolved to that extent, so keep calm and satisfy your beef craving if you must.
9. Besin Laddus
Let’s hope these are ‘sin’fully sweet enough for you to forgive the spelling!
10. Leeches and Ice Cream
Indian restaurants haven’t gotten that exotic, and for sure, lychees are much more pleasant on the palate.
