Naming a Restaurant can be a hard, or can be easy, depending on its owner. While it’s common to make a nod to its cuisine, its location or even an important feature, sometimes some restaurants have some names that are just plain hilarious and make you wonder ¿what were the owners thinking?
Here are twelve restaurants around the world with that have some weird names. Intentionally or not, sometimes they seem to make no sense at all, and sometimes they do in a very funny way. In the end, what you can be sure of is that these names will put a smile on your face (we can’t make the same promises with their food!). In the end, what a word can means or sounds like in one language or country can have a totally diferent definition in another, but pun names are always legit.
Chickpizz, London, UK
This restaurant is located in Stoke Newington, and not only it serves delicious pizza and fried chicken, but it also has a cool environment to go with friends on a Friday night. The abbreviation of the two specialties of this place is really funny, making it hard to forget the name.
Thai Tanic, Belfast
Almost everyone has seen the movie “Titanic” at least once in their lifetime, and this restaurant's name sounds the same. A small Thai style bar with a friendly atmosphere that serves traditional noodle dishes or make your own in the “design your own” section where you can pick the vegetables, the sauce and the protein.
Soon Fatt Wicklow, Ireland
Even though we all know Chinese food may not always be the healthiest option, nothing tastes better than some Orange Chicken and Roast Pork Fried Rice. Soon Fatt serves a wide range of classic and modern dishes that are just simple delicious and perfect for sharing with friends. Just don't overdo it or you'll end up like their name!
Frying Nemo, Australia
Great for a sunny day at the beach, Frying Nemo is a small fish and chips shop that serves Australian traditional food made with fresh ingredients every day to their visitors. The catching and amusing name can gets anyone's attention from far away.
Fu King Chinese Restaurant, Lake City, FL
This is what happens when a Chinese restaurant opens in America. Fu King serves excellent food, like people's favorite as the orange chicken. His name, a nod to its owner Mr. Fu, ends up being hilarious if you say it fast. They've taken this in good stride, though: you can even buy a Fu King shirt for a friend or even yourself.
Kum Dem, Melbourne, Australia
Language diversity can put restaurants like this one in an awkward position. An east imperial Chinese dining filled with beautiful antiques decoration and a joyful environment, serving multi-region Chinese plates.
