Pugsley loves Bibimbap

Last night, my husband and I went to a restaurant called  “I Love Bibimbap.”  That’s the name of the restaurant. It’s never made any sense to me.  Also, I think a few years ago it was called “U Love Bibimbap.” I guess that could have been seen as false advertising so they changed it?  Either way, it’s a very strange name for a restaurant.

We also have reservations soon for a restaurant called “Surfers.” Yes, Surfers. In Stockholm, Sweden. And the food is Asian, not even seafood.

This got me thinking about other odd names for Stockholm restaurants that bother me. These are all real restaurants in Stockholm:

Restaurang Ho’s

Restaurang EAT

Ghandi

La Cucaracha

Pugsly’s Coffee Shop

Toss the Salad

  1. What do you mean they have strange restaurant names in Sweden?
    Holy Monkey!

    Well, OK. At least I don’t think this has the same connotations for Americans as it does for Brits or Aussies, so this one’s ok:
    Pong

    Hmm. Maybe just picking up a snack is safer:
    Plopp

    1. You are absolutely right. I didn’t know about Pong being a slang word, but now that I do, I will use it in my conversations all the time.

  2. You have boys, so unfortunately for you the opportunity to use pong should come up fairly frequently.
