Amusingly named eateries

Was it not for Kottke, I would have missed this paper on restaurant sobriquets and subsequently an earlier piece on the Guardian food blog. There are some absolutely hilarious examples in the comments but here are some of my personal favourites:

  • A Pizza the Action
  • Wok Right Inn
  • Thai Me Up
  • The Frying Scotsman
  • The Codfather
  • Jason’s Donner Van
  • Cheeses of Nazareth

I’ve not eaten in all of them so I can’t make any comment on the quality of the fare. I’m not sure I could ever order anything from the last in the list for laughing out loud whenever I even just think about it.
