Impressive sign...very colorful...hard to miss, which, I suppose, is the point!

Hilda I love some of our local advertising signs. The ones in English(Thinglis) usually are a laugh.
Now you've given me an idea for a mini-series.

In slang English(regional to my part of UK) you could read your sign as "working."

Guess, the best food is always prepared at home, inside the kitchen and surrounded by lovely people.
A wonderful Wednesday for you all.

I've seen Chinese restaurants with this name here, too.

There's a new Chinese cookbook in our stores over here......it's called, "How to Wok your dog."

Reading the comments on this pun-ny post is as humorous as the post itself.

Not exactly the Astoria Plaza! But, the pub is one you "love to hate" for sure!

Asian restaurants are still not widespread in Brazil, which for me is a pity, I really like the oriental tastes!
God bless you!

Louis:
LOL at the video and song!

James & Vernz:
Groan! Those are a hundred times worse than Wok Inn! Hahahahaha!

Chuck & Birdman:
Yes, the name's quite common in many English-speaking countries. Google it and you'll see it all over. :)

Leif:
No, I am not laughing! That's horrible! Especially since there are still people who do eat dog here in the Philippines and in other Asian countries. :(
