Stir Fried Wikipedia

Last year, Jim of Evolving Web blog went to Beijing and ate at a restaurant there when he noticed some unusual menu choices: wikipedia!

So, after much discussion, here is what we think happened.

"Hey I'm making the new menu, what's the english name for those flat crispy mushrooms?"

"Um, there isn't one."

"Well what should I put down here?"

"I don't know, look it up in wikipedia."
