Torayyyyyy Group Title

Below is an advertisement for a restaurant. Oops! The writer made a mistake and used a false cognate incorrectly. Read the advertisement and identify at least four true cognates or borrowed words and one false cognate. Submit the list of borrowed words and cognates in French. Au Restaurant Advertisement Le restaurant de L'Etoile est près de l'aéroport. Sur le menu, on trouve de bons hors-d'œuvres, de la quiche, et des sandwiches. En dessert, il y a une crêpe à la mode, des éclairs et des gâteaux.

    The only false cognate I can see is "Advertisement" itself.

    @e.mccormick I see, but , well, "à la mode", in the context of a French restaurant nowadays means "with ice cream". So it is not a false cognate anymore as it might have been 25 years ago. This is why I did not even notice it. Anyway, e.mccormick is right in spotting that it must be the expected answer by the teacher, so @Torayyyyy, go for it.
