Last year I discovered a place that is every EngRish enthusiast’s dream. Plain EngRish heaven, one might even say ; The Young Elderly Fisherman restaurant in Chengdu, China.
After chancing upon this random little eatery, we were tickled pink… and as I’m sure you can imagine, our decision to dine at the Young Elderly Fisherman was based entirely on the amusing name (young AND elderly?? Really??). Already my day had been made (it doesn’t take much), but then we opened the menu. HOLY CRAP! It was amazing! Never in my wildest dreams had I dared to believe that a menu so packed with Plain EngRish gold could ever exist. Honestly, you couldn’t even make stuff like this up! Don’t believe me? See for yourselves; (oh, and please excuse the poorly framed and somewhat blurry photos – I couldn’t keep still enough from laughing so hard to take a decent shot).
As I’m sure you’ll agree, from the evidence provided here today, The Young Elderly Fisherman takes the crown for Best EngRish Menu Ever. Long live the Y.E.F.! If you’re ever in Chengdu, you’d be well advised to hunt it down (you’d also be wanting to find this EngRish too).
Have you seen an EngRish menu to rival the Y.E.F.? Or any other EngRish photos you’d like to share? If so, email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org with details on where you found your EngRish and a link back to your site if you’re that way inclined.
Until next week…
