Today I’ve got a funny guest post from Stuart who runs the website Am I Nearly There Yet? It’s about the funny Shanghai Restaurant menu that he spotted on a night out in this massive Chinese city.

Stu and Eloise are a couple of Pommies (for the North Americans out there reading this – Poms are English people – Australian Slang!) travelling the globe long term, sharing their travel adventures through photography, humour, stories and advice! You can follow @StuAndEloise on Twitter and Facebook.

Stu contacted me and said ‘We’ve been travelling through China for the past month and while spending a week in Shanghai we came across the most ridiculous menu we’ve ever seen.. Items like ”Delicious Roast Husband” and ”Keeping the baby” – Literally NO idea what they were! Ha! I thought it would make an easy going and hilarious article, with photos taken from the Shanghai Restaurant menu and a few quips about each one!”

Well like The Godfather, this sounded like an offer too good to refuse for me! Here it is!

I want to eat at this Shanghai Restaurant for a good belly laugh! Crazy Chinglish Chinese Menu!

Stu says: During a recent visit to the crazy city of Shanghai on China’s east coast, we found a restaurants with possibly the weirdest and worse translations we’ve ever seen!

English menus are quite rare in China – Most people have heard of weird and wonderfully bad English translations – But these?!

Keeping The Baby

Weird Menu

Deep green fries the sacrificial Intestines – mmm yes please!

Thankfully we walked away unscathed, unpoisoned, very confused and with empty stomachs…

Is there a McDonalds nearby?

Oh my god, I was pissing myself laughing when I first laid eyes on these photos! This was some Chinglish gold! I definitely think that this hilarious Shanghai Restaurant Menu should appear in Chinglish: Found in Translation.

hahaha these are hilarious! Gotta love typos on menus and signs. I saw one where they mistyped “crab” as “crap” so the Crap soup was made of crap and vegetables with a strong taste of crap.

Ha ha, I already ate there some delicious chicken.
I want to try some spicy food as well, but I don’t know yet what to choose.
