Stuff we've discussed on IRC.

This is the menu for Kent Hospitality's new restaurant on campus.
We've already pointed and laughed at the spelling of the name, but Italian-Japanese wasn't really what I was expecting.
And the menu's just plain bizarre.
"Light / Grande"?
"Chilli humous" that claims to not contain any chilli? (And how does that fit with the theme?)
"Duck and leek deep-fried dumplings"? Gyoza (and the Chinese equivalent) are steam-cooked, not deep-fried.
"A virtuous and satisfying Japanese noodle soup dish"? Virtuous?
I assume they're trying to be a Wagamama clone, but somehow the standard UKCH approach shines through.
It's nice that they provide all the menus online, though, so the thrifty student can note that humous and pitta is 15p cheaper in Origins than Dolche Vita, and nachos are 25p cheaper in Mungo's than Origins.
Shame that its in PDF format though, HTML would be much easier to collect data from and generate a combined menu showing price / availability of everything at each venu
