Chineses what?


The name of the restaurant in Korean is “Yang-go-gi Yori-jeon-mun-jeom”, which is a restaurant branch for lamb meat. Apparently, the owners decided on “Chineses Mutton a Refectory.”

According to Wikipedia,

A refectory (also frater, frater house, fratery) is a dining room, especially in monasteries, boarding schools and academic institutions.

Lamb, hogget, and mutton are the meat of domestic sheep.


  1. correction:
    the four chinese characters there says (if treated as korean hanja) “dong dae mun yang” = “Dongdaemun Lamb”, and perhaps there are more characters after them.
    but that restaurant’s name is really funny. ^^
