Mistakes in translation amuse especially tourists in many places where restaurants, shops and hotels try to deliver services in various languages. In the above image you see a Turkish restaurant menu where Acılı Kebab
has been somewhat correctly translated as Hot Kebab
(Hot & Spicy is more commonly used). However the opposite of hot, Acısız Kebab
, has been lost in translation and become Painlessly Kebab
. A non-Turkish speaker might take a while to ponder what they are ordering. And right below the painless kebab we have a Winding Beyti. I think what they are cooking is actually Wrapped Beyti. Try it if you get the chance!
