At Hussong’s, ignorance in any language

Does “Hussong” sound like an Asian name to you? Apparently it did to enough customers of the restaurant inside the Shoppes at Mandalay Place that the cantina-taqueria took notice and is trying to combat misinformation with “Hussong’s—It’s Not Chinese” Wednesdays, which offers Dos Equis sake bombs, “tushi” and forced lessons on the joint’s more than 100-year history in Baja. Personally, I don’t see the humor in a Mexican restaurant offering Japanese fusion dishes on a night meant to reinforce the fact they’re not Chinese. Oh, and the stereotypical cartoon Chinaman on the official flyer? That’s not Chinese, either. That’s ignorance, Hussong’s.
