comment How to say “wait” answer in simple conversation mandarin language?
I'm a native English speaker (UK/Scotland). We would generally say 'wait a minute', 'wait a second', 'wait a bit' etc. Rarely would we just say 'wait', because it sounds quite rude.

@TactMayers that's what I thought - so 芥末泥 would (presumably wrongly) mean mashed mustard then?

comment Translating an English menu
I assume 'mustard mash' refers to mashed potatoes with mustard through them - does specifically refer to mashed potatoes?
