Traveling in Eastern Asia affords one the opportunity to try many wonderful cuisines which would be difficult to find in Western countries, especially in their authentic forms. Meal description translations on menus don’t always come out as intended, however, and the outcome can humorously portray the food in an unappealing way. One such example is the following picture taken of a menu in China:

Dried Fried Ass Meat
