Broken English: Hamberg

There is a shop selling what in Japan is called "hambaagu" (from "hamburger steak") in the same building as one of our magic bars. That means they are selling fried meat patties, which according to Wikipedia corresponds to Salisbury steak in English.

Anyway, this place is called "Hige", and they have two signs. They spell the dish "hamberg" on one sign, and "hamburg" on the other... I figure at least one of them must be wrong, right?

The food is said to be very good, though.
