    Monokuro Kitan Ch1 (Help with some food names)

    On page 4, the girl is ordering some food at a restaurant. If someone could check what I’ve done so far and help out where I’ve got stuck, that’d be great.

    柔らかジューシーリブステーキのライスセット A soft, juicy rib steak with rice

    シポラタソースのオムライス Omuraisu with Chipolata sauce

    汁なし坦々麺極辛 Super spicy Tan Tan noodles, hold the soup

    プリプリ海老イカ春巻き5本 5 tender prawn and squid spring rolls

    ダッタンざるそば Bitter buckwheat noodles

    キングターキーとシモフリトマト狩人風 Hunter’s King Turkey and Blanched Tomatoes

    ホタテチップとくの字えびの漁師風 Fisherman's scallop chips and prawns (I'm not sure what くの字 is supposed to be)

    ガブリブロースとギガントミートの山賊風 Bandit's juicy rib roast and giganto-meat

    When people read from a menu, they often start off with "I'll have the..." so I would suggest taking out the "A" and the comma to make it "The soft juicy rib steak with rice" and then list the other items with commas.

    Omuraisu -> Omelet Rice

    "汁なし" is part of the item name, so if you want to be super accurate and fancy it could be "Super spicy Tan Tan noodles sans soup."

    Not sure where you got the "bitter" part from. ダッタン refers to the Tartary Buckwheat plant.

    No problems.

    "くの字" literally means "curled/bent in the shape of the く hiragana character." So "Curled prawns" would be one choice.

    The romanization for "ギガント" is "Gigant" (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ギガント). "ガブ" is a Japanese sound effect for "bite," so maybe "chewy rib roast?" It's your call.
