Pingtung..... in LA?!?!!

I just saw this!

My father-in-law's family is from Pingtung.

Hakkanese food! On Melrose!!! Have the heavens opened? Are the seas boiling?

Then I looked at the menu.

Banh mi? Sushi? Galbi?! Uh....

Looks like they've adopted the Chipotle Method of Restaurant Nomenclature.... i.e. take an exotic sounding name that intended customer base (non-Chinese) will be unfamiliar with, and serve food that is not in any way identifiable with the name.

(i.e. there's nary a whisper of chipotle at Chipotle)
