Signs of the Times: Beavis and Butt-head, This is for You Guys

Adelaide, Australia. Although I love Asian food, my inner adolescent boy came out strong with this one. I used to drive by this sign daily on my way to work. Kurt, the kids and I ate at A Dong a few times and I highly recommend the restaurant. In fact, I always wished I had taken a photo of the establishment before we left at the end of 2010. However, upon returning to Adelaide last month, I had a mission. While doing this post, I checked to see if there was a translation for A Dong from Vietnamese to English and could not find one. So, that still leaves the original connotation alive.

  1. Haha, funny posting and see how it’s lost in translation! 🙂 “A Dong” actually means “Asian” and not something too scary or exotic on the menu… but you never know!

    • Thank you, Mark!! I’ve been wondering for three years now what A Dong means. Wow…it’s really pretty generic, actually. Oh well. Mystery solved and now when I (hopefully) go to Vietnam I won’t have to chuckle to myself all the time. Okay maybe just a little.
