What a wonderful description!
I will go for the "Plain round mass of food". That sounds particularly yummy, especially for the ones who like to wear a cowboy suit.

Haha, I also have something like this right now that I should probably post up in a day or two.... it's a pure joy to read.

What on earth could they mean by "Clap a cucumber?"

Please, you MUST send this in to www.Engrish.com, especially if you can manage a little clearer copy. I've been splitting a gut laughing since I saw it, and this is right up their alley.

I've never seen so many food items that are still performing actions (like mixing powder silk, or adjusting themselves to your anticipations) when they're on the plate! I guess it saves on the restaurant's labor costs.

I can't decide between "The opening smiles cow meatball" and "Fresh hair belly". And I thought using babelfish to write papers for high school spanish was bad... this definitely ups the ante.

Clap a cucumber is actually just smashed cucumbers marinated with some vinegar, garlic, etc, served as a cold starter

Oh yes, the sugar vinegar in the mind IS beautiful.

You can't help not loving them for
reaching out for whatever their reason. This is what I found during my visit. Much unlike that "other" country.

For making money or friendship, they made an effort to reach out to you and appreciated your effort as well.

Enjoyed reading this.
