Last night my boyfriend and I ate dinner at home then headed out for drinks, where, as usual, he ordered
a Helles steak frites. German menus look like hieroglyphics to me, but a little bird told me that the dish was listed under the heading TIERISCH GUT, which literally translates as “Animal-y Good,” or, if you’re feeling frisky, “Beastially Good.”
We’re off to London, where surely steak will be listed under something like
Mad Cow Meat.
