This is too funny! I love it! I hope you are having a great time. Waving from DC.


Heh it probably was a note to the english translator of the menu to look up the word in wikipedia but they forgot.

Looks delicious regardless...


That's hilarious! And I'm envious of all of you eating such marvelous food.

I'm running a Survey Monkey survey to try to figure out what you ate so that I can order it myself.


I'll post the answers when I get something that looks like a summary.

I tried to order stir-fried wikipedia with pimentos at Kai Garden in Ann Arbor. They didn't have wikipedia - said it was high class and only available in China and very expensive.

Wikipedia Wikipedia Wikipedia Baked Beans and Wikipedia ?

Wikipedia sausage Wkipedi Wikipedia bacon Wikipedia tomato and Wikipeda?

Lobster Thermidor au Cravette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and Wikipedia?


So, if I understand this correctly, 鸡枞 is "Chicken fir mushroom".

It's a guess, but you can search for that and get Google to translate the page.

And eat it with some Wikipedia Bread on the side: http://sexybeijing.tv/new/eblog/default.asp?view=plink&id=127

That's hilarious! :)

Is there user-generated chicken stir-fry on the menu, too?


I thought Wikipedia was blocked in China, for all the evil democracy it contains.


That is GREAT! LOL!


I also went there and took almost the exact same pics! Small world, glad you enjoyed your wikipedia!

Nick Moreau

Would you consider releasing these pics as CC-BY-2.0, so that we could use them on Wikinews? I'm planning to write an article about your find, just as I wrote an article about the bread prior to it.


Correction: it does not look delicious. It looks del.icio.us.

I actually ended up having this at almost every meal for the 3 weeks I was in China - in various states of preparation. Most often, I was ordering it off picture menus.

James Benson

Mmm Sounds good, looks disgusting, but sounds good

DJ Fadereu

i just wanted to add that in the Wikipedia itself, but you haven't named the restaurant itself. Could you please?

Jim Benson

I received many requests for the name of the restaurant, Pockey says:

South silk road (cha ma gu dao) is the name and its at the (hou hai)

So there you go!


I want to try the Steam Eggs with Wikipedia.


鸡枞 -- Collybia albuminosa (Berk.) Petch

According to Chinese Version of Wikipedia (百度百科) http://bk.baidu.com/view/164511.htm

There is a picture of it.
