5 clever restaurant names
We all love going out for a meal from time to time, and Australia is home to some fantastic restaurants and local eateries.
But whether it’s in Australia or around the world, restaurants can also have some pretty clever names – especially when it comes to puns. In today’s blog, we’re bringing the working week to a (almost) close by listing five of our favourite pun-driven restaurant names.
1. Lord of the Fries
Where better to start than with Australia’s very own french fry joint, Lord of the Fries? The fact that the food offered at its numerous locations (within Victoria and NSW) is delicious is an added bonus, too. Hopefully it may make its way up to Queensland one day.
2. Wok this Way
There are actually a number of restaurants with the the ‘Wok this Way’ pun, one of which can be found and NSW (and another in Melbourne). While we’re not 100% sure of the location of the above Wok this Way restaurant, it’s evidently continuing a proud pun-filled tradition.
3. Hallowed Grounds
If you’re a lover of coffee, then Hallowed Grounds – located on Brisbane’s southside – isn’t just a clever pun, it’s also considered to have some of the best coffee in the city. It may not be a restaurant, per se, but Hallowed Grounds serves up great food along with its fantastic beans.
4. Thai Tanic / Thai-Tanic
The Titanic itself was one of the deadliest maritime disasters in history, but that doesn’t mean that the ill-fated vessel hasn’t been transformed into a pun. And what other type of restaurant would you expect to utilise such a name than a Thai restaurant? This particular restaurant is located in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
5. Lord of the Wings
As if almost going full circle, we return to another aptly named eatery, Lord of the Wings. No surprise that their specialty is chicken wings, but this restaurant chain also does burgers, sandwiches, steaks, etc. As far as we know, there’s only one of these restaurants currently in Australia, and it even comes with a spicy hot wings challenge that requires the participant to sign a waiver that basically states if they die, the restaurant can’t be held responsible. Fun stuff.
