Ever wonder about the names of Chinese dishes?

There is a great Thai restaurant in the town where I work. Before they revamped their menu a few years ago, my favorite name for a dish was, "Beef in the Secret". And--cross my heart and hope to die--the explanation offered was, "Do you want to know what the Secret is?...Order this dish to find out!"

What's your favorite culinary title?
