Recently, walking along the street here saw this sign with a cactus, a mustang and I wondered, where am I -- back in Dallas?
That word that looks like pectopah, that word might resemble the English pectorals, but believe me, there is no connection.
It's actually the Russia word for restaurant and pronounced very similarly to the English. Here's the low-down on those letters: the Russian р = r in English, the Russian е = a ye sound in English, с = s in English, т = t (although in cursive, the Russian T is formed like an m in English - as below), о = o, р = r in English, а = a in English and н = n in English. So there you have it!
Worked up an appetite yet? Please join me at the Ranch House Restaurant. We can assume dining there at that ресторан is lots more fun than building pectorals!
