Interesting Menu Item

We ate dinner last Saturday night with my Korean girlfriend(who we had also had lunch and coffee with). We stopped at a hamburger and hot dog joint in Seoul. It was hilarious to see this as a menu choice. It means that you get beer with your set.
In the U.S. a set is the same as ordering a burger, fries and Coke or a #2 or #5. In Korea, you don't order by the number instead you order by the description. At McDonald's, if I want the #1 set, I have to say "cheeseburger set" v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. When I first moved here and ordered by the number, the cashier would always have to look behind them to the menu board to see what I was ordering. I learned pretty fast after that happened a few times.
