Food Wars
« on: March 12, 2010, 09:19:38 AM »
Anyone watch this show with the grating, overperked host? She's trying so hard to be entertaining that it becomes irritating almost instantly. Stop fucking yelling.

Anywhat, they pitted Mr. Beef vs. Al's on the Chicago episode. I would like to hear who you guys prefer. We're actually taking a trip to Al's down the street for lunch to celebrate absolutely nothing.

I prefer the beef and giardiniera at Al's, but Mr. Beef on Orleans has better ambience, in that it's completely no frills, and you stand at a counter to eat. 
I think he's more of the appendix of Desipio.  Yeah, it's here and you're vaguely aware of it, but only if reminded.  The only time anyone notices it is when it ruptures (on Weebs in the video game thread).  Beyond that, though, it's basically useless and offers no redeeming value.

The judges chose Mr. Beef 4 to 1 over Al's in a blind taste test. The one vote for Al's was from their designated superfan who also happened to be the biggest guido meatball I've ever seen.

I wonder which Al's they ate it.  I've heard suggestions that, unlike Portillos, Al's quality varies from place to place.  I'm  most familiar with the one at Ontario and Wells and I prefer it to the Mr. Beef which is about 2 blocks away, around the corner.

You stand up to eat? What if there's someone behind you trying to WATCH THE DAMN GAME, DAMMIT?

They were at the original Al's on Taylor St. They held the contest at a bar next to Mr. Beef which seems shady but whatever.

I'm in it for the food porn.

Green Door Tavern.  I stopped in there to catch the end of a Hwaks game last year.  Decent place. Been around forever.  Was apparently a speakeasy back when Stew was a kid.

I wasn't being literal, you giardiniera-stained clod. Merely an unfunny reference to the Huebiter's shoutbox-declared hatred for anyone who has the gall to stand up and cheer for his team before the Huebiter deems it acceptable.

Yeah I know what you were going for, you inveterate sheep fucker.  And unfunny is a charitable qualifer.  I was thinking more along the lines of "lame" and "a pointless waste of typing".

Next time, try a little humor with your, ahem, "jokes".  It makes it so much more interesting for the reader.
