The University of Toronto Scarborough has ordered up a banquet of 10,000 Chinese restaurant menus and relevant tchotchkes.
The mother lode of menus was purchased for about $40,000 from Harley Spiller, a world-famous U.S. collector. Spiller said that while he didn’t invent the art of collecting menus, he has taken “it to a level few have gone before.”
Guinness World Records recognized the international collection in 2005 as the largest of its kind.
