What Chinese restaurant menus say

Thanks to The Reader for putting us onto a site translating Chinese menus. This quote explains it best:

“I have never quite been able to sit down to a meal in a Chinese restaurant without wondering. Wondering if the Chinese characters on the menu said the same thing as the alleged English translations.”

“The goal is to enable you to look at a restaurant sign and say, “oh, this place specializes in seafood,” or to look at a mystery-meat dish on a menu and see the Chinese and say, “ah, it’s a lamb dish.”
