Back to work.

After the recent media exposure - I still get at least one reporter knocking on my virtual door a day - I return to what this site is all about, preserving the beloved beauty of Chinglish.

Irene has recently sent me this one from a "nice Sichuan restaurant at the corner of Chengdu Rd and Weihai Rd" in Shanghai 上海 .

Before someone starts complaining: There's nothing wrong with the piece.

夫妻 - fu1qi1 - man and wife

肺 - fei4 - lung

片 - pian4 - slice (in the meat 肉 rou4 context)

"What are you having? I think I'll go for the ..." Tasty.

Thanks Irene!

This one is quite funy. This dish is a traditional SICHUAN(四川)cuisine. "Man and Wife" here means "couple" in Chinese, nothing to do with the lung, just like a brand. Mabybe someday there will be a dish called "Brother lung" haha
