Edit History

There is a guy here in town who is something of an entrepreneur. He introduced the first supermarket to the city some thirty years ago, built it into a local chain, added smaller convenience stores then sold the lot to China's largest retailer for zillions.

 

Since then, although ostensibly retired, he has kept one small fruit store, but opened a number of supposedly western restaurants. He opened a KFC clone before KFC arrived and has a generic "western" restaurant in the city centre. He also has an Italian restaurant in one of the most popular shopping malls. This he bills as being an "Italian Food Expert" joint.

 

The only problem is that he knows nothing about western food! Everything is Sinified to the point of being unrecognisable to either westerners or the local Chinese.

 

Recently he has opened a pizza place. Here is a sample of his offerings.

They like the durian pizza so much it appears on the menu again.

L-R: Strawberry pizza (again); Hawaii fruit pizza; Rurality* pizza

 

*Rurality pizza - I'd translate the Chinese as "Countryside scene pizza".

 

Any odd pizzas round your neck of the planet?
