An Italian restaurant in Taipei has caused controversy for naming a German sausage pasta dish: “Long Live the Nazis,” according to China Real Time.

The manager of the Rockmill restaurant told the media that they didn’t realize the name was so insensitive, and chose it to help guests realize its German connection. Apparently the dish was very popular, and no one complained about it or a pizza they were selling with the same name.

However, the establishment was forced to come up with a new name for the dish after a local television station broadcast a story about it that garnered plenty of complaints, including from local representative offices for Israel and Germany, China Real Time reported.
