Mayonnaise Kitchen: My Personal Hell

October 24, 2007

Mayo Drink

There are only a handful of things I truly hate in this world. One of them is mayonnaise. That white, slimy, gooey, oily mess that people think is delicious. No other single foodstuff makes my mouth feel like it is full of dog shit than mayo. And reading that there is a place in Tokyo called Mayonnaise Kitchen causes me to seizure.

In 2006, Japanese consumed 1.65 kg of mayonnaise per person. I think that shows what they think of the crap. The restaurant caters to “mayoraa” [マヨラー], mayo freaks.. It even serves up the “Mayoty Dog”, which tastes like the vodka-based cocktail Salty Dog but is served in a glass with mayonnaise on its rim instead of salt. I rather get sodomized than drink that putrid concoction. OK, maybe not sodomized but definitely groped and violated.

Gag ‘n Punk.

World’s Most Expensive Scotches

October 24, 2007

Whisky Glass

MaoChan loves his Scotch. My old reliable is of course Johnnie Walker Black Label. I drink Blue Label when I am high rolling. But when it comes time to truly show that I got taste and the cash to burn like a big man, you got to be able to order like a big man. Macallan’s 18, on the rocks. No bullshit. But then there is scotch for people who just have too much money on their hands.

With the cheapest being $415 for a dram, this list doesn’t hold anything back. These are bottles that are more investment than for drinking pleasure. The way some are described are as if they are like drinking the ambrosia on Mt Olympus itself. Just reading the line about how to drink $51k Dalmore leads me to think that I would cream my pants. That or just bust out into song and dance.
