‘Chinglish’: the laughably bad Chinese > English translations you find all over China. There are also many examples in neighbouring countries but generally China leads the way in its bizarre gold medal winning interpretations.

  2. Just read the menus. I managed to be quite ill on German and Austrian food when on my OE, my stomach takes time to accustom itself to food in unfamiliar places. Since I did not do well on food in western Europe, I do not think I would do well on these menus either. dad and Mum had the occasional encounter with Chinese food in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

  3. WP just cut me off mid comment. This carries on from my comment above. Dad and the other auctioneers used to be invited to weddings and funerals among their Chinese market gardener clientele. I think the bosses expected them to go, but they went quite willingly because they liked the Chinese. These were vast gatherings with original Chinese catering. The auctioneers got used to it, possibly offered food on weekday visits. They got to know which they could eat, which dishes they liked., but their wives found it a challenge. But on one occasion Mum and Dad were offered a big parcel of leftover food to take home. The cakes / breads(?) were extremely heavy dough, and after a brief sampling were quietly buried one night down the end of the back yard. Mum never did cook Chinese food at home.
