I don't know maybe it is a good place to eat. Look at those GMO bananas.

I'd never thought about the 'kaka' thing!
It's part of our language, but...it's the Maori word for a species of parrot.
I wonder if the 'kaka' cafe is in NZ?
I looked up 'boneless bananas'; apparently it's the bendy ones.
Of course.

kaka means cake in several languages. It is an easy mistake to make. I am surprised it hasn't made it into a mel brooks movie or similar.

"Let them have their kaka and eat it too".....I guess that that's not exactly what Marie Antoinette said, just my juvenile mind working overtime.

That is closer to what I think she meant...

I have to wonder if the Kaka restaurant is owned by C.O.Jones.

 
This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. Now it's a tiny ad:
