The Mixing of the Cultures
Last night I had dinner in a restaurant that served both Japanese and Vietnamese food.
I had shrimp summer rolls with sushi. Interesting combination.
It reminds me of a restaurant in the town where I went to law school: it was called "Chinese's Chinese Food."
I guess they couldn't think of a more creative name, like "Golden Dragon" or "Jade Pagoda." So they just went with "Chinese's."
One day there was an ad in the paper: "Chinese's Chinese Food is now serving Vietnamese."
I got so confused.
