Funny food names

Leucadian | Dec 19, 2006 01:10 PM

Sliders and SOS are some English food names that are pretty funny. I have just tried birria, which is a Mexican or Salvadorean goat stew, and it's tasty, but the name apparently means 'trash'. And my friend kare_raisu's name is kind of funny, being the transliterated Japanese version of an English name for an Indian dish, and a British version at that. (Hi kare_raisu. No offense I hope, but I love the Japanese versions of foreign words, like biru, basuboru, tempura.)

Do you have any others that would be funny if you knew what they meant?
