Funny / Punny D&D inn and food ideas

Recommended Posts

I am creating a character that aspires to be a cook and comes up with revolutionary ideas for food service and was curious what ideas you all could come up with. Ideally they would reference a real place IRL or be a entertaining pun

 

Here is what I have:

 

McLizards - ‘swift snacks’ aka fast food, a window people can ride up to

 

Blue Crab - seafood delicacies

 

Silver Corral - a monster buffet!

 

Banana Bees - frozen treats

 

Biscuit Barrel - homestyle meals

 

Slizzard Lizard - tavern

 

Dragon Wild Wings - chicken!

 

Whatamutton- fresh lamb

 

also I am looking for monster recipe ideas, as she is going to harvest slain monsters for food experiments to try and create new recipes. Things like pudding and ooze gelatinous treats, Griffin steak, etc

When I DM, I have a tendency to have a place called the Rusty Rooster (alternatively, the Tarnished Turkey). It doesn't matter if it's a fantasy setting or scifi (once it was our cargo ship, think Serenity/Firefly).

 

House specialty could be cajun chicken. 'Cause it looks like chicken with a rusty skin.

 

If you want some Mythos inspired menus, here's a list from the KS Necronomnomnom cookbook.

 

Beverages  

  • Shaken, Not Hastur (martini)
  • At the Fountains of Madness

  • Brain Cylinder

Breakfast

  • The Muesli of Eric Zahn

Appetizers

  • Sunken Mu 
  • The Grape Old Wons (why is it looking at me?)
  •  Sacrificial lamb 
  •  Atlach-Nachos 
  • Shog-Pockets

Soups

  • New England Damned Chowder (of course)
  •  Investi-gator Gumbo 
  •  Pallid Bisque (Very filling)

  •  Fishes from Outside

Main dishes: Vegetarian (that is, dishes for vegetarians - not made from them)

  • Elder Thing Parmigiana (looks scary - tastes amazing)
  • Foul-lafel (fantastically fiercesome falafel)

Side dishes

The classic has always been Rat on a Stick - from dwarven snack stands.

 

There are about half a dozen recipes online - the one I use is from Judges Guild.

There is also the Nanny Ogg Cookbook, for lovers of Terry Pratchett.

 

Spoilered because naughty. (Nanny Ogg and Casanunda - 'nuff said.)

Don't mention Banana surprise...  

 

Yeah, I have the book, and no, I haven't dared make anything from it.

Not even the Librarian's recipe for banana?

 

The Auld Grump - take one banana.

Black pudding.

 

A whole slew of Victorian foods - slumgullion, lobscouse, dead man's arm, spotted dick, wet nellies, and pea soup with floaters, are a start. (And, all are delicious.)

 

Bubble and squeak is another.

Both Jullia Child and Paula Deen come readily to mind as starting points for character development.

In the western US we have a chain of restaurants that is gradually expanding from a base near Redding, California called the Black Bear Diner.  Known for very large plates [platters actually] filled with extremely generous portions and a bear themed motif for all of their restaurants.  Makes me think of the Bugbear Diner as a fantasy alternative.

Other possibilities:

The Rogue Kill Inn or Cafe - heavy on the entertainment served up with the food.

Ottto & Mats - Prepared foods served in individual dishes through little doors where you drop a gold/silver piece into a slot to unlock the door.

Yarl's Jr. "Flame-Broiled" where the flame is provided by a suitable magicl beastie.

Bob the Dwarf Boy - "Bob" being a dwarf who wears red and white checked overalls and serves up deep fried feathered beast with all the trimmings and ground up hoofed beast in alternating layers of beast and bread slathered in a relish of minced pickles and smashed tomatoes, served with a side of tuberous roots cut into long square strips and deep fried in the same fat as the feathered beast.  Renowned for his "Dwarf Mojo-Jiver" coffee, that will keep you jittering for a long night of adventuring. 

The Golden Boar - Your basic buffet where you are weighed coming in and weighed going out and charged accordingly.  Guaranteed that you will be lighter [at least in the purse] when you leave.

 

Hope this provides some ideas to at least act as a springboard.
