Boring menu

First of all, this is a Korean, not a Chinese restaurant, even though the name says Tai Won Chinese Restaurant. I have only been there for lunch, so I can only comment on that. I must say have never seen a more boring menu. Every dish lists pork as the main ingredient - pork on rice, pork on noodles, pork with bean sauce, or in spicy soup. There's a total of less than 10 items, and some of them were the same, just different sizes. So choosing what to order was very easy. We decided on a large order of pork noodles in spicy soup (for 2 or 3 people, according to the menu).
The order came in an enormous bowl, indeed enough for at least 3 people. But surprise - it wasn't pork. It was seafood, which was definitely not on the menu - well, not in the Engllish part of the menu, at least. Whether it's in the Korean part, I have no idea. But anyway, we asked the waitress if she had brought the wrong item to our table. She took a look and said it's what we ordered. "The menu is wrong," she said.
We gladly accepted the substitution because we'd much rather have seafood than pork. But still, it was weird. The food itself was not anything special. It's not worth a second visit, in my opinion.
