Perhaps you weren’t aware that special menus for Chinese New Year are filled with visual puns and wordplay. Well, Jonathan Kauffman and the Adobo Hobo’s Ed Chui are gathering menus from around town and translating them just for you on SFoodie. Yesterday began the series with Empero Taste in the Outer Richmond, whose “Year of the Tiger Stimulus Plan–Stock Market Increase Meal” will run you $228 for 10 people.
