Chinese Restaurant Fun

in 2011, I went on tour with an English orchestra to Shanghai and to Perth. While it was a long way to travel for just 3 concerts, I made sure to use any available free time to see as much as possible.

One night I went with one of the other musicians in search of a meal before our concert. It was a holiday, the Lantern Festival, and everyone was out and about and the restaurants were packed. We found one that had a) space and b) a menu with pictures and English (of a sort). The food was quite good once we found something to order that wasn’t too scary. But mostly we were just crying with laughter at some of the options on the menu. Sorry for the photo quality, I couldn’t get the camera to hold still.

  1. I want the Parsley skirting the Arctic. That sounds delicious!

    Oh my god, they are wackier than any translations I have seen before! So glad you thought to document them… and so glad the trip was fantastic despite tummy troubles… xx
