  1. What is a crab tail?

  2. Nice add. I wonder if they edited the dishes with the wine selections in mind.

    The one time I went to this restaurant I think the toilet had backed up. They had us captive on a cold day, and despite the hints-of-feces the food was relatively successful… I still have bad mental associations with this place though.

  3. Crab tail is from the abdomen of the king crab — it’s a strange-looking extended part of their bodies, not a distinct appendage.

    There was no poop smell when we visited WD-50. There was, however, a food scientist at the next table. He was a man who took great pride in his palate. He was made a fuss attempting to identify the exotic ingredients in the food. An issue was made of whether a dish contained black cumin or regular old cumin. He was certain that it was black cumin, despite the chef’s claims to the contrary.

  4. It seems like being a food scientist would destroy the joy of eating.
