Smells from the kitchen

This is a restaurant in our neighborhood.

There is always a kind of weird smell coming from this place. It smells like food. But maybe not the kind of food you're used to eating.

(I once wrote a commercial that had a grandma reminiscing about the holidays and "the smells coming from the kitchen." When we started shooting, we realized "smells" was the wrong word, so we changed it to "the aromas coming from the kitchen." I think about this commercial a lot when I pass this place because this kitchen definitely has smells coming from it.)

The other day, I noticed this sign outside the restaurant and I began to wonder how much of the weird smell thing it explains.

"Steak cheval" is "horse steak."
