Menu Typos We Never Want to See Again
Crap dip. No, seriously, crap dip. We saw that typo on a menu. Let's assume that “crab dip” was what was intended, but it wasn’t what was presented. Too bad.
Homos with fresh vegebles. Honestly, we don’t know! Maybe hummus? And what the heck are vegebles?
And then there’s this thing that’s going around the Internet about a menu that advertised a certain drink. We call it Coke, I guess, but whoever printed the menu decided to replace the “k” with a “c” and the final “e” with a “k.” Heaven help us.
Here’s the Thing...
Okay. When we eat out, we would like to know what we’re getting. And we would also like to think that maybe, just maybe, someone could do a bit of proofreading. Some of the mistakes we’ve seen, we can’t even, in the interests of decency, repeat here.
Look, even the best restaurant can totally lose our confidence when we see horrible errors. Like “A bowel of rice”? Really!
And that’s not even the worst of it. Let’s talk about some of the most common mistakes on menus. The ones that just shouldn’t happen. The ones that aren’t even funny, just pathetic.
Cesar is the Dog Whisperer. His name is Cesar Millan. He trains dogs. Unless Cesar Millan has made your salad, it is not a Cesar Salad. It is a Caesar Salad.
You are not getting an expresso after your meal. You are getting an espresso. You are also not getting a cappucinno, a cappacino, or a capucino. You could, however, have a cappuccino.
You die in the desert because you are not getting enough water and it is too bloody hot. You are not enjoying a desert in a restaurant. You are having a dessert. Which will never dehydrate you and make you die, unless it has been cooked by a horribly inept chef.
You are not having an omlette. If you haul out your Webster’s, you will learn that the suffix “ette” means something that is small or inferior. A good restaurant will never give you an inferior oml. But it might give you an omelet.
These are just a few of the horrible misspellings we have seen on restaurant menus. You may know of others, but please, make sure that they never appear on yours. If you’re not sure how to spell, make sure that you entrust your menus to a company that can save you from yourself!
