A local restaurant says on their website:

"Pat's Tap serves palindromic gastro pub fare."

How can food be palindromic? The rest is jargon but 'palindromic'????

If you have an answer, please let me know. This is popular place with good food and lots of beer choices.

My husband thinks that they're just messin' with people and that this has no real meaning. What do you think?

Stunt nuts

Stressed desserts

I thought they might've done Chinese dishes, but when I emailed Pat's Tap with the enquiry they replied:

Wontons? Not now.

I thankyou and goodnight :)

It's just a riff on the restaurants name. Not literal.

What they mean is their food does not give the customer gastro intestine discomfort... Its the latest fad to say we use all natural ingredients, no MSG's...

I thought it was gorgeous. It's the second most gorgeous thing I've read today. I've been defrosting the fridge so a lot of what I've been reading has been The Ariston Fridge-Freezer Guide to Food Preservation and Frigidaire Care (in French) but whatever... The first most gorgeous thing, if you want to know, was Sandi Toksvig's comment (http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012/aug/26/sandi-toksvig-interview)on the Tories - which I missed the first time around: "The Tories put the n into cuts"

Such a crush on that woman. Sandi - I wuv you!

Sandi Toksvig is wonderful. I first saw her on Who's Line is It Anyway and have enjoyed her work ever since.

By the way, for anyone who hasn't seen it, she hosted a comedy panel show with a literary theme called What the Dickens?
It can be found on YouTube.
