The packen heat wordplay was clever.

Are there any good wasabi based hot sauces? I like the punch of wasabi followed by the sudden, inexplicable lack of follow through heat you get with stuff like wasabi mustard.

a perfunctory google would suggest yes even though i've never seen them in person

with that said i've definitely seen horseradish hot sauces more generally before, which is the same style of heat

the pineapple pie and double chicken sichuan burger are good. the german sausage burger is fine. the sausages are pretty bad but they use a somewhat spicy mustard which makes the sandwich work to some extent

that seems easy enough to diy

i am gonna order a chile restock today i think, i am down to only two kinds of jalapeno (morita and chipotle) so everything comes out a little spicier than my so likes lol

according to that, the pineapple pie is a deep fried thing which apparently is different from the US thing..

we have the “apple pie” here but it’s not a pie, it’s like a crusty fried pastry thing with apple chunks and sweet sauce. sounds the same as the pineapple pie but not apple

but not like the us apple pie

that's a change, though, up until the 90s all the north american pies were fried, too. i don't think i've had an apple pie from mcdonalds since then, anyway
