the worst name for a korean restaurant.... ever

So I've been hearing a lot about this new "Korean-themed" restaurant opening up in Times Square. Unfortunately, the restaurant's name is.... wait for it.... Chop Suey. No joke. After the fakest "Chinese" dish to hit American shores.

Who's stupid idea was this? You can blame Zak Pelaccio: Is Chop Suey the Worst Name Ever for a Korean Restaurant?

Okay, so Chop Suey's reps claim that the name is supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek reference to blended Asian cuisines. But come on. It's just about the most uncreative name for a new restaurant you could think of. What does that say about the food? I don't think I'd eat at this place just on principle alone.
