Hilarious Naming Mistake

This restaurant used an online translation tool to name their restaurant in China. This is one of the funniest translation mistakes I have seen.

There's a big Vietnamese community here in SoCal. Some of them are very creative in naming their pho restaurants.

That's pretty funny. It reminds me of a stir fry sauce package I got from my Chinese exchange student. The instructions were to "pickle slowly for five minutes, then add shredded edible fungus".
