Madam - Does that really say bowel? Yes it doesApparently a new restaurant has opened up near my house – a new pan Asian place.

Now despite my love of Thai food that was not what arrested me about this poster. Can you guess what it was?

That’s right, it was the name. And the logo.

Can they really have named their restaurant ‘Red Bowel’?

Apparently so – and as if that wasn’t bad enough… the logo of the red bowl looks rather like an ilium.

Thus reinforcing the whole bowel theme.

Madam - Red Bowel Pan Asian CuisineFor the love of God, don’t these people have a someone to check this stuff for them?

Well obviously not.

Or maybe the food is actually that bad… or is entirely based around offal. Chinese cuisine does feature that nose to tail eating very heavily – and it is all the rage in Europe at the moment, so perhaps I’m vastly underestimating them and they’re just being open and honest.

In which case – eeew.
