Do you try and pronounce the names like they do, or just normally? Like
Like I want to sound cultured and stuff, I even have the Asian Riff on my tablet so I can play it for them when they bring the bag to the counter.
>pronounce the names like they do
Literally everything in Americanized Chinese food is [flavor] [protein]
Hot and Sour Soup
Salt and Pepper Prawns
Pronouncing it like they do is just mocking their accents.
personally what i do is perform a deep bow and then, from the folds of my kimono (which i always wear to show respect for asia's beautiful culture) i procure a scroll on which i've written my order in immaculate kanji using my calligraphy set. anything less is disrespectful
Unless it's something you literally can't mispronounce I'll just point it out or say the English name if it's there. They really don't give a shit as long as they can easily understand what you want.
Unless you just want to give them something to laugh about in the kitchen at closing time.
>giving a shit about pronouncing a word from a language that you don't speak, and that is in fact so far removed from your language that the fucking shape of your soft pallate isn't conducive to pronouncing it.
I don't use this image often.
