    It seems like almost every Chinese restaurant menu, no matter where you go, is pretty much the same menu. I'm (almost) convinced that there is just one master Chinese Restaurant menu that almost every Chinese restaurant orders, along with the soy sauce and fortune cookies. It doesn't matter what language it is in, either. I know there are a few exceptions, and the food itself varies greatly, but ......

    Buenos Aires. Looks pretty much like the "to go" ones in California.

    Very similar to the ones in Illinois.

    I think the same can be said for Mexican Restaurants. A #9, #11, and #14 was the same no matter where I went.

    Seriously, I think wherever they're printed has a monopoly on red and black ink. Here in NYC we have several "faux Mexican" taco places. It's not hard to figure out who owns them from looking at the take out menus.
