Things You Don't Want to Eat
Tuesday, 2007 August 28 - 11:30 pm
Seriously.

Amy and I went to Nana's Chophouse downtown the other night. Every other time I've been there, the food and service have been impeccable. But Amy has a knack for ordering the one thing on the menu that a restaurant can't make correctly. When we were at Riviera, it was the steak that they made on the grill that couldn't get hot enough. (That steak is no longer offered, after we told them exactly what the problem was. Don't mess with us when it comes to meat.) At Nana's Chophouse, it was their cajun red snapper... which was just burnt. Not blackened, just burnt. They were very nice about it, taking it off our bill... but still, how does a dish make it out of the kitchen like that, at a fine dining establishment? (I kept thinking of "Hell's Kitchen"... Chef Ramsay would have had a fit if one of his cooks had tried to push out a burnt dish like this.)

Last night, we were at Logan's Roadhouse, a nearby chain restaurant. Amy's steak salad sat in the kitchen getting cold, in plain view from our table, for more than ten minutes... as employees stacked dirty dishes and prepared other items right next to it. Hello?

So, in the vein of Things You Don't Want to Eat: two coal miners in China, trapped for six days in a collapsed mine, drank their own urine and ate coal to survive. ("And when there was no crawdads, we ate coal." "You ate what?" "I ate coal." "You ate coal?") I have nothing tasteful to say about this.

Also in the Things You Don't Want to Eat category: what the hell is up in Japan these days? Found via Dave Barry, I give to you: Butt Biting Bug (oshiri kajiri mushi).


Best factoid from the original article: Butt Biting Bug comes from ASSyria. Best comment on Dave Barry's blog: "That just tastes like ass."
