Now that I'm a temporary invalid, I get to order my meals in, as it were. Today, this was the menu for dinner:

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like there are a lot of better ways to describe fried chicken (which is what it was) than "Fried Fresh Chicken Chunks."

yeah, chicken chunks don't sound appetizing at all.

I totally agree. Reminds me of the cafeteria menus when I was at Ohio State.

And is the eggplant considered a garnish for the bowl of Garlic Sauce entree?

Britney said...

Here's my theory. In an odd attempt to wax poetic, the chef sacrificed what would be a far more appetizing phrase, like, say, "homestyle fried chicken" for one with the flair of alliteration: "fresh fried chicken chunks"???

I have no explanation for the rest of the menu.

I think "rissotto" is spelled wrong, too.

Britney, I'm amazed the chef or whoever was able to get it this bad without doing it on purpose. It's not just the words, it's the order of them, too. There's the disgusting juxtaposition of "fresh chicken" (makes me think of pink, uncooked chicken) as well as the "chicken chunks" bit. I think this may be one instance where deep frying something just couldn't help.

The fried fresh chicken chunks were pretty good--it was actually good old-fashioned fried chicken!
