Toronto restaurant changes menu after racism controversy

Last week, a Toronto restaurant in Koreatown made international headlines after its menu got lost in translation.

A Toronto diner posted a picture of what looks like the menu from Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu to Reddit. It showed that the restaurant offered various levels of spiciness in its dishes, ranging from extra spicy to white.

Some claimed this was racist, while others noted it was merely a poor translation.
