Here's a contribution from @stapler - a bright and happy sign outside a local restaurant in... not sure where, maybe stapler will tell us. Or maybe he's busy trying to figure out what 菜饭 and 常米 are.

What caught my eye was the misspelling of 馄饨 as 浑沌. Seems like a pretty serious mispelling? Or maybe it's an acceptable alternative. I don't know. Taken in 呼伦贝尔.

To be fair, many people don't know how to write 餛飩. I had to explain to people from Shanghai and Guangdong it is the same thing as 雲吞.

In Beijing it's pronounced  húndun. Taiwan 國語辭典 also gives the pronunciation ㄏㄨㄣˊ ˙ㄉㄨㄣ (hún dun).

If you type hundun in Pinyin IME however, you get 混沌/渾沌.
