Broken: Restaurant name

Inkeri Pekkanen writes from Finland:

Here's a photograph of a restaurant in Sofia, Bulgaria... Would you _really_ like to eat in a place called "Oops!"? I know I wouldn't.


The cook showing "tasty" sign looks funny by the large OOOOPS signe

Okay, call me whacko, but that would be the first place I'd try if I had just come into to town and saw the sign. I've run around western Europe a bit, and such silly bits of English often indicated something worth seeing.

It's a bit unfair to point out these things in a foreign country. My guess is that it's a bad translation. They were probably looking for something like Wow! and the dictionary didn't give the full context for each word.

Or maybe they're trying to say that they stumbled by accident on an awesome new recipe, then the sign is exactly right.

Reminds me of an old Mexican-food place in a nearby town. The sign said "Tacos to Went"

A friend of mine told me about this place. I love it. I will recommend you to all my friends.

See you again next time I surf around.

It looks as if you are getting guestbook spammed... who says "I Just surfed into your site" and "see you next time I surf this way"... Come ON!

Right on "Myself". Personally I would eat there, but check out the armpit check that the two girls on the right side of the photo are engaged in, pretty intense. That's what's broken to me.
