What does “SQ” on a menu stand for?

What does the abbreviation “SQ” that one finds on menus stand for – what are the original words, which language is it and what does it literally mean?

  • Could mean two things – the first and most likely:

    Subject to Quotation or Market Price – Seafood prices can change so rather than reprint the menu, they say SQ or Market Price to they can adjust the price accordiing to their current cost. Example – Lobster Tail – SQ/market

    Another thought is:

    The concept of SQ Meal is similar to how meals on airplane are served. All SQ Set Meals are accompanied by a main course (with vegetables), pastry, mixed fruits and a bottle of mineral water which comprises all the four food groups thereby making it a balanced diet suitable for any health conscious person. Diners have a variety of selections, such as Chinese set, Indian set, Vegetarian set, Western set, Seafood set, Japanese set and each set is presented on a common tray to the individual diner.

    The above is a brand choice available from GT Food Supply Pte Ltd – of Singapore.

  • Sq. Square?!!!

  • Squirrel.

    It’s illegal to sell squirrel meat, so they call it “chicken”, but add the SQ so that you will know.

  • If you mean a food menu, it probably means squash. Only the thought of squirrel for dinner creeps me out.

  • square…as in 36 sq centimeters

  • Subject to Quotation ??

  • I think M_1 may be right! I can’t even find it in the dictionary…
