Outrage Sunday 183 fine dining

There’s nothing I like more than Corean kimchi (if you don’t include Cobe beef, Cansas corn, or Calamunda waffles). IMG_0022As per Bethany, they’re selling Belgian stuff here. Krazy Kym loves it when we “go Dutch” and I bring her some “rollmops” in bed! dutchshopBut for your classic fine dining, you can’t beat the western suburbs. Delicious!IMG_0202

    Could the scare quotes in this case function as a kind of wink, indicating that you can buy all manner of Dutch “stuff” there, just like in Amsterdam?

    Does any1 have the address of the restaurant with the bespoke engraved table?
    I intend to support any establishment that seeks to break the fine dining duopoly of Jacksons and The Loose Box.

    Eating rollmops is on the antisocial side of eccentric. I’d ban it before the burka. I had an engineer called Ricebubbles coz he ate them 3x 24. Only, he ate them with spoonfulls of mashed up fish he’d pickled in jars with vinegar. The human stomach can only turn so far, you just can’t do stuff like that with everyone else sitting at the galley table hoping to eat and not puke it all out, thereafter he ate alone with the vastness of the ocean to ponder, seated on the freezer hatch. And he was lucky we let him do that.


  4. When a foreign country uses a totally different alphabet, they can’t be wrong for spelling the sound of their country’s name with a C rather than a K…

      What if it’s a non-foreign country?


    • And (I think) Korea is the Japanese name for it. It’s not what they call their own country.


      • Snuff says:

        South Koreans use Bukhan for North Korea, Namhan for South Korea, and Hanguk for Korea as a whole (and South Korea). North Koreans use Bukchosŏn for North Korea (rarely), Namjosŏn for South Korea, and Chosŏn for Korea as a whole.

        In Japanese, Chōsen refers to Korea as a whole. South Korea is Kankoku, and North Korea is Kita-Chōsen, which North Koreans claim is derogatory as it only refers to the northern part of the peninsula.

        Unsurprisingly, the spelling of the English Korea or Corea is historically somewhat contentious, and in European languages, Korea is more common in Germanic and Slavic languages, while Corea is more common in Celtic and Romance ones.


        • Well we don’t call German or Slavic countries by their right names either.


        • RubyRuby says:

          Chōsen-jin is a rather problematic Japanese term to describe Korean people, too, as it is often applied to Koreans living in Japan, even though they are now up to 4-5 generations of residency there, and many remain technically stateless (as Japan has only acknowledged the Choson dynasty, which ended a while ago and so… modern history gremlins everywhere).


      • RubyRuby says:

        You’re nearly close. Koryo was the name of a dynasty a while back, when the first maps were getting drawn in Europe. North and South are fairly agreed that they are currently the country of the Hans, “Hangook”.

        And yep, that’s why GIs were calling Vietnamese “gooks” during a little misunderstanding there in the day – that was their lovely slang term for Koreans during the UN action there and you know, all Asians are the same.


    • you'll get wet says:

      This is Australia and we’ll decide who gets to spell what here


      • Bento says:

        Slippery slope. One minute you’re accepting regional variants and tolerating phonetic transcriptions, the next minute Kim Jong Un is goosestepping down Oats Street.
