A lot of Indian food looks pretty appetizing, but some of it just can't help but look like a variety of chunky diarrhea. This is baingan bhartha, a smoky eggplant dish that's absolutely delicious.


I love curries, on one occasion during uni though I decided to get one from the local indian owned chippie.



The oil was actually washing any curry off the naan bread I was dipping into it so I decided to tip some of the oil away into my doom room sink

What in the gently caress

Maybe I'm getting the wrong curry but usually the not oil to oil ratio on the curries I get is slightly different than this

I always heard that authentic North Indian stuff has a layer of oil on top, and that they use way more than you'd think is necessary or reasonable, but I hope that's not what that means.

It is far in excess of the amount of oil I've ever had with any other curries.
Dishes are often oily but usually it gathers in little pools on the surface rather than making a complete layer.

Right yeah like there's a very decent indian place I go to semi regularly and their curries do have some noticeable oil but drat, looking like the Deepwater Horizon spill in that bowl

What if you stirred it so the oil mixed in with the rest and then ate it quickly before the oil could separate and come to the top again?

This has been true for me so far. There's a mom & pop Indian restaurant up the street from me that makes the best palak paneer I've ever had, but I have to pour the oil off before I dig in. Surely they could use half as much and it would be just as tasty?

I tried that, it would silt up like disturbing sand at the bottom of a puddle by the sea but it would all fall to the bottom straight away.
I would add that after removing some of the oil it was very nice.

You shouldn't dump oil down the sink, it clogs up sewers. Put the oil in a container and in the bin.

Fast Food Review: Subway's Lobster Sub: The Earth Sandwich Says Hello!

In terms of anti-food porn, this is probably the tamest entry. Surprisingly, it was not as unattractive as I imagined, however, I embarked on a field trip and thusly you shall hear about it.

Approximately 3PM, I go to the friendly neighbourhood Subway. It caters! Anyway, I am greeted with a vagina.



All my wishes, sandwishes, mind you, will come true today. I walk inside the "restaurant", glare at the price board (I have forgotten my glasses). This monstrosity will run me eight dollars CDN should I elect for the small size, which I do, because I love and respect myself. Also, I am broke. After a large family finishes ordering seven different 6" subs (gently caress YOU, JUST BUY THREE FOOTLONGS) Ashita, my sandwich artist for today, is ready to take my order.

"Six inch lobster sub, please."

A momentary look of disbelief flickers across her face. She releases a small sigh and walks to the back, returning with a tiny paper boat filled with bright pink lobster. She plops it onto a loaf of bread and squishes the little claws of meat into the bread in a way that looks both maternal and bored. She changes her gloves.

"Toasted?" she asks. Absolutely. If there's anything worse than a fish sandwich, it's a hot fish sandwich. I also select the suspiciously named "white cheese" to complete the meal. On it, I also get lettuce, mayo (even though I think the lobster is already swimming in mayo), onions and banana peppers.



Not bad. Just sort of looks like a sandwich. It smells like the Vancouver ferry in springtime, with a twist of cat food. I start eating. I am surprised, because it tastes like nothing at all. About 2/3rds in, I realize this is because I have not actually encountered any lobster yet. It is indeed lobster, I realize. It's chewy, but it lacks the salty taste I normally associate with things that spent their entire lives in the sea. It is distressingly creamy.



I am starting to become unhappy.



A tiny hand has emerged from the bottom of the bread. Hello, it says. I remember I do not like lobster all that much. I continue eating, the taste of hot onions and rubber in my mouth. Why does it smell, but not taste, like fish?



Why did they dye it? My skin feels hot, I feel sleepy. There is still a weird taste in my mouth.

fake edit: My favourite pizza topping is spinach and mushrooms, which I consider to be one ingredient.

The correct way to eat the lobster subway sandwich is to have half lobster and half steak. It isn't terrible but neither would it win any awards and really doesn't need more words than that.

If it helps staunch a derail, I think it's really mild cheddar that happens to be white. They just always ask if I want white or orange cheese and I want to laugh because it makes it sound like I am selecting purely on the basis of colour arrangement rather than an actual type of cheese.
