If you owned a takeaway, and your sign began to disintegrate, in most areas of the city it wouldn’t be a major problem. People would still buy food from you confident in the fact that they wouldn’t come down with a case of food poisoning or discover an unordered rodent poop garnish on any dishes. Not so for the restauranteurs of Turnham Green who have to remain ever vigilant in case this unfortunate sign malfunction happens to them and destroys years of hard earned customer confidence. I could be completely wrong though, maybe the owners of this place are just really concerned about climate change.

What came first, the cafe or the little blue pill? I hope it was the cafe because giving your business a name that’s almost identical to a brand of erectile dysfunction medication is a questionable move unless your food has certain aphrodisiac qualities.

Shit Londoner Simon Gretton sent in this photo saying…
“I saw this on the way to PC world in Catford on the weekend, something quite funny about the massive presumptuousness of the owners of this place, but equally it could be very nice? Catford dichotomy…”
I like the phrase “Catford dichotomy”, it has a nice ring to it like “Bermuda triangle”
Personally I think that this sandwich shop should be applauded for letting their customers know exactly what they are ordering. Most places would just thrust salmonella upon their customers without giving them the chance to have a think about it first.
It’s also worth noting that they offer panini with “grilled marks” as if this is some gastronomical flourish they’re particularly proud of. Forgive me if I’m wrong but aren’t grilled marks on panini a given? They’re an unavoidable, natural sign that your panini has been prepared in the intended manner and hasn’t been say, shallow fried or boiled. This is kind of like offering “Soup – with steam”. You can’t take credit for steam or grill marks, it’s simple psychics!

Sharp eyed customers will notice a couple unusual items on this Chinese restaurant menu. Personally I’d prefer a ginger beer with my meal, it’s delicious and refreshing, these items….not so much. If anything they’d put you off your food. My point is, if you’re going to order from this place be extremely careful.
