"You ate where?" Ten "worst-named" restaurants

On April 28 The Stew,
Chicago Tribune's food, wine and dining blog, decided to post the world's 50 worst restaurants list in response to The World's 50 Best Restaurants list, announced on April 26. The list is filled with non-existent "worst" places to eat, but here is a list of the world's ten "worst-named" but attention-getting restaurants.

The Stew's fake post list nods at some popular and renowned restaurants with entries like #16 El Bully, #11 Grant Achatz Presents: Flavored Sound and #9 Le Jirque but the top ten list of the world's worst (or best, depending on your point of view) restaurant names was provided to Relaxnews by Doug Lansky, man behind The Titanic Awards and accomplished travel writer currently residing in Sweden and past columnist of The Vagabond, a Chicago Tribune humorous adventure travel column.

#1 Phat Phuc Noodle Bar, London, UK
#2 My Dung, California, USA
#3 Stomach Clinic Railways Restaurant, Nairobi, Kenya
#4 Vagina Tandoori Indian Cuisine, Dublin, Ireland
#5 Cumn Eat, UK
#6 The Golden Shower Restaurant, Tanzania
#7 Bung Hole, UK
#8 The Chocolate Log, India
#9 Chewy Balls, Texas, USA
#10 Soon Fatt Chinese Food, Ireland

To find out more about world's worst lists for 2009, look for Lansky's new book The Titanic Awards: celebrating the worst of travel to be published on May 4 ($13.95) and be part of the 2010 survey, vote for your world's worst at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6ZZQKSD
