Recently, my buddy (pictured above, but will remain nameless) and I were talking about the worst named dishes in Little Rock. We both thought an admittedly somewhat juvenile post to honor our pathetic exchange was in order. I believe his exact words were: “Hey, I’d read it.”

Well, here it is: The 10 Worst (but really the best) Named Dishes in Little Rock

10. Flamed Seared Pork Intestines at Mr. Chen’s

Flamed seared food is awesome, except when you combine the cooking method with pork intestines. In fairness, it’s probably the best way to eat pork intestines. I’ll never know.

9. The Garlichoke at Damgoode Pizza

Unless it has “arti” in front of it, never use “choke” as part of your dish’s name.

8. Fugley at Kiyen’s

I guess if you drink enough of these cocktails, even the fugliest of dates will seem appealing. Be sure to drink responsibly.

7. Chocolate Sack at SO Restaurant-Bar

Ummm … I would have gone with “Chocolate Tote.”

6. Cat-toufee at The Oyster Bar

Dammit, Oyster Bar … that is just wrong. Although, I must admit, the dish’s description sounds awesome, and I plan to try it out very soon.

5. Thai One On! at Jimmy’s Serious Sandwich

Excellent play on words, but what the hell does a sandwich have to do with a commonly used expression for continuing to drink excessively?

4. The Dirty Bird at Gusano’s

Great name for a former NFLer’s end zone dance, but terrible for a pizza.

3. Bumblebee Stew at J. Gumbo’s

Relax, no actual bumblebees were harmed in the making of this stew.

2. Sergeant’s Sausage Roll at NYPD Pizza

Envision ordering this one: “Err, ummm… I’ll have the Sergeant’s Sausage Roll…. and a Diet Coke.”

1. Clear Soup at Sky Modern Japanese Restaurant

Quite possibly the most uninspiringly-named menu item in the history of restaurants.

OK…in all of my internet research, did I happen to miss a dish that belongs on the list? If so, please let me know.

The big sausage pizza at Jeff Owens house

McAlister’s has a sandwich called the “Big Nasty.”

The waitress approached our table, and said, “I have a Big Nasty.”

My smartass brother said, “You do?”

Hilarity ensued.
