Things that are pissing you off- Food & Drink Edition - Page 171

post #2551 of 2864
yeah that happens bro. I just had that experience today. I don't know the varieties of avocados but I know there's the two from Mexico that look somewhat similar from the outside, maybe one is a slightly larger than the other on a regular basis, but the former one has a massive pit and the other always has a tiny pit, and for some reason, the smaller pitted ones are much cheaper and also more reliable. Have had so many problems with the ones that have the pits the size of ping pong balls, yet the tiny pitted ones are almost always reliable and have good color through.

Are avocados $25 a piece over there?
post #2553 of 2864
they're 105y/piece at Lawson and 195y for the bigger risky ones at the supermarket near me. Was in Seoul a couple weeks ago and I still check the price of avocados for my perversions, and they're still like $5 a piece there as always.

J. Robuchon is coming to Tokyo in a month, will be in the kitchen doing one dinner at his restaurant - the price? 70,000 yen. For two, drinking a modest amount, that would be a $2500 dinner. ffffuuuu.gif Would love to go, but it's not worth that much.

That's like a once in a lifetime thing. I say do it. You can always just ditch your wife.

I just don't want to spend that much, it can't really be any better food-wise than what is already served. It's simply the photo opportunity and really, not worth that much. I meet Gagnaire at least once a year and he knows me by name now, and makes a point to serve me my food, and when he comes out to his restaurants to do the obligatory week of work the price is never that much different than the normal menu.

Is he going to be cooking, or just there? It's worth it if his hands are touching the dishes, IMO.

I think he might wave his wand (yes, maybe that one) on the plates, otherwise he's just there to emerge from the kitchen for the meet and greet. I think we are both underestimating how dumb, rich, and gourmet some Japanese people are. Anyway, reservations were open for like 10 hours and closed last night already. Can go eat the same food at L'Atelier up the street and cry about it over a $150 lunch for two.

On the bright side I think my wife signed us up for some lecture by Rene Redzepi or Jordi Roca next week, no idea what is going on.

true story: once I was out in Piob-town having dinner with Piobaire, and my other half texted me to let me know she was having dinner with J-R (and 2-3 other friends that were present).

I still had a great time out, but I didn't expect to be one-upped so hard.
