This is apparently making the rounds today, as I spotted it at both the J-Walk Blog and this morning. Shopsin’s is a New York City diner that has the most extensive, all-inclusive, wacky, eleven-page menu you’ve ever seen. I am so definitely stopping in the next time I’m in New York. Looks like a Downtown 1 or 9 to Houston St. will get me there…

Talk about a menu you could play "Where's Waldo?" with...
Imagine the binder they must have in the kitchen on how to make each dish.
