Japanese term or phrase: めんたい
めんたいジャコのPIZZA
what does めんたい mean?? what type of Jaco's Pizza it could be.-thanks
xxxkumo
English translation:mentai
Explanation:
めんたいis the same one as 明太子 . Probably it has mentaiko all over the pizza. This is a spiced fish eggs. Japanese frequently eat this with spaghetti noodles as well.

じゃこis is a very tiny fish. It is not some guy named Jaco.

As in many of your previous questions, these are intrinsically Japanese food items and probably can be left not translated.

These are both quite common types of food.
