McGangBang

Check out the McGangBang mania in a truly American fashion.  It actually makes me want to hurl, but then I remember it only cost $2.16. You’ve got to love the off-menu delicacies.

The naming, of course, is somewhat obscene — “gangbang” is defined as “sexual intercourse with multiple partners in turn or at the same time.” It’s illicit in more ways that one — chicken and beef most definitely make for an unnatural pairing.

Economics of Ethnic Dining

Tyler presents his guide on ethnic dining and covers everything from how to identify quality raw ingredients, to understanding the competitive market scope of a developed culinary environment. Something to keep in mind while patronizing neighborhood restaurants.

The best ethnic restaurants are often found in suburban strip malls, where rents are lower and the degree of feasible experimentation is greater. Small and cheap ethnic restaurants are often better than large ones.

Let’s jump ahead to rule three:

Rule 3: Order strategically. In fancy restaurants, never ask, “What should I get?” Instead, ask, “What’s best?” That allows the waiter to highlight what’s special and reveals how informed the staff is. If the waiter’s answer is “everything” — an uninformed or cowardly response — head for the door. In ethnic restaurants, in contrast, asking what’s best often gets you the most watered-down dishes, designed for gringos. Look at what teh ethnic diners are eating and order that.
