Interesting Food Court Stall Titles

One thing I don't like about foodcourts are that food sold in most of them are usually so standard that it doesn't quite interest me in entering them. This evening, however, I passed by this foodcourt in Punggol and it attracted my attention.

No, the food sold inside are once again the conventional ones you can find almost anywhere. What interested me was the signages for each stall. Each stall has had 3 or 4 Chinese characters for their signs, like Chinese idioms, and at least one character in the phrase would sum up what the stall is selling, like yin xiang shen ke (印象深刻), which means literally "a deep impression" for Indian (yin du) food. And guess what was used for roasted duck rice (la ya fan or 腊鸭饭)? They used la bi xiao xin (蜡笔小新), which meant "Crayon Shinchan"!
