Funny English signs in Iran

Many countries contribute to the diversity of English language. You can come across funny signs or inscriptions in probably every non-English speaking country. I have already posted our collection of funny signs from China. This time signs we have come across during our 3 weeks in Iran.

Please visit THE – very famous historical monument of Shiraz:

  1. My favourite is still from the menu in Gjirokaster, Albania

    1. Hahahaha, that is a great one! I am always surprised how restaurants cannot find a native speaker to check their menus in exchange for a dinner or two. Especially in places like Prague – no English native speakers at all. ;-)

  2. Haha! So nice, thanks! And the Albanian “sour scream” reminds me so much of the “screamed eggs” that I saw on a breakfast menu in Beijing. Scrambled? And there were also tomatoes “in live oil”. What a difference a missing “o” can make!

    1. Yeah, sometimes just a letter makes a huge difference. I remember menus in Prague have quite a lot of funny “dishes” ;-))) Will make a collection once we are back to Prague.

  3. It was pretty funny :-)

    1. Yeah, I like this kind of signs in various countries.

  4. You know , it is hard to explain and describe a native name for a food in English , for example spageti is an international word , but not kabab koobideh !

    1. Yes, i understand. I am not mocking. In many countries there are such funny signs in English, e.g. China or Japan.
