thats actually not so weird...for some reason, "prawns" sounds like "MONSTER HUGE SHRIMP" to me...after ordering a prawn dish a few times, ive finally come to realize that it means "tiny little cheap a$$ shrimp"

Never trust anyone in Venice, especially the waiters. At one restaurant, they didn't have an English menu so he suggested that I get the "sarde in saor". I said o.k. and spent the next hour choking down sardines marinated in onions with pinenuts.

well, there is actually a little more to it...shrimp and prawns are actually two different animals, but the terms are often interchanged....i spent a few months in England/Europe and they seem to use the term "prawns" more, while in the US it seems to be more "shrimp"...and, often times, i think "prawns" actually does refer to the big shrimp i mentioned before - i may have just been at some less than top class restaurants that used the term to make their dish sound better than it was....someone feel free to correct me, or add more

look at me, being all schooled 'n stuff

prawns and shrimp; not animals, but rather, crustaceans.

OKAY! I did NOT see the chocolate melting cake ANYWHERE on that menu! Is that what it's called or is it called something different? I just want to make sure I don't miss it when I go!
