Silly Menus

Recommended Posts

Pretentious, ridiculous or just plain stupid menus.

 

I came across this menu from a restaurant in Manchester, England. The restaurant is called The Laundrette and the varous sections in their main menu are labelled using washing machine terminology, almost at random.

 

Appetisers are Prewash, Pizzas are Spin Cycles, Burgers are Prewash (???), Starters are Small Loads, Salads are Easy Care, Steaks are Press (???), Desserts are Delicates, Mains are Full Load, Sides are Rinse (???) and then we have a failure with Extras.

 

The sad menu is here (PDF)

Shouldn't Beverages have been called Rinse?

 

Indeed.

 

Yet their drinks menu, although littered with silly cocktail names (which is normal), is one of the saner ones. The children's menu is the least childish.

I couldn't get past the Garlic Dough Balls. To me, dough is something that has not been cooked. Surely that is not the case?!
