Fifth Reich gets compeition

Six years ago (damn have I been here that long!) the big news was the Nazi bar in Shinchon, Seoul. The bar is still in operation last I heard, albeit toned down some.

Well in the bar has competition, apparently in India:

A new restaurant in India's financial hub, named after Adolf Hitler and promoted with posters showing the German leader and Nazi swastikas, has infuriated the country's small Jewish community. 

'Hitler's Cross', which opened last week, serves up a wide range of continental fare and a big helping of controversy, thanks to a name the owners say they chose to stand out among hundreds of Mumbai eateries.

 "We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay in people's minds," owner Punit Shablok told Reuters.
