it's kind of maddening. i mean if pizza hut and these other places would just take all the $$ they are presumably putting into r&d or whatever it's called in the fast food/chain restaurant world and instead put it towards quality ingredients with the aim of making simple (if greazy) good ol' fashioned pizza, then their products would be edible, something like they last were decades ago. the drive for novelty has become increasingly silly to the point where, when i opened this thread i momentarily thought these were just some jokey ideas that dayo or another person had photoshopped. the p'zolo things just look nightmarish. are they using half-starved drug-addled homeless ppl for their test-marketing subjects or what?

this is obvious but this is a direct correlation to the emphasis on drawing hits on websites instead of reporting news/doing actual journalism - these food products (see also the pizza with hot dogs in the crust) get the restaurants press coverage, draw in consumers who just want to try the products so they can say they tried them - it's all about boosting numbers

and yeah, BK bacon sundae is not super surprising to me. makes sense: further mainstreaming of "yum bacon" meme, sweet + salty has been a food trend for a while. not a bad idea, though i don't trust burger king to do right by it.

contenderizer, Friday, 15 June 2012 18:43 (six years ago) Permalink

I've had bacon + ice cream or bacon + chocolate on a few occasions and it's never really been a very successful combination. It's basically just a sweet thing with a few chewy out-of-place bits of bacon floating around.

i have a new favorite source for this shit and it's BEEF MAGAZINE

https://www.beefmagazine.com/beef/beefshi-makes-its-culinary-debut

Move over cronuts. Throw those kale chips in the trash. Forget the unicorn frappes from Starbucks.

Foodies, pay attention! There’s a new “trendy” food headed your way, and your taste buds are going to love it!

Earlier this month, the North American Meat Institute (NAMI), working with the beef checkoff, created a new culinary concept called “Beefshi.”

Beefshi beefs up traditional sushi by utilizing beef favorites like pastrami, corned beef, jerky, beef hot dogs and beef bologna in sushi rolls that are both eye appealing and delicious.

the portentous pepper (govern yourself accordingly), Thursday, 14 March 2019 09:00 (one week ago) Permalink

Texas Asade Sushi — Roast beef rubbed with lime zest, ground cumin and garlic and rolled with Cilantro, slivered jalapenos and onions, crumbled cotija cheese. Served with salsa.
Inside Out Wisconsin Maki — Sushi rice on the outside wrapped around a stick of summer sausage, a sliver of Colby cheese and shaved dill pickles. Served with brown, spicy mustard.
New York Deli Roll — Corned beef takes the place of nori on the outside of the roll. Slivers of fresh horseradish and Swiss cheese are rolled into the middle. Roll the exterior in a few caraway seeds.
The Reuben Roll — Warm pastrami, sauerkraut and thinly sliced Swiss cheese rolled into sushi rice and served with Russian dressing.
The Hiker’s Roll — A traditionally styled roll with nori wrapping around sushi rice, filled with slivers of beef jerky, slices of egg omelet and pea shoots or watercress with the leaves poking out the top of the roll. Dip into sriracha.
Carolina Sushi – Shredded fried beef bologna and carrot slivers rolled in rice with a vinegared cabbage leaf in place of Nori.

http://beefshi.com/ has a bunch of "new for 2019" concepts, including the absolutely horrific-sounding Muffarolletta

The Muffarolletta may actually be the most promising of these. Italian olive salad is sold in every grocer in N.O.,LA, and when the cupboard is otherwise bare in the wee hours I've put it on spaghetti or rice. It doesn't really need the additional tartness of sushi rice, though.

The cheese sauce is gross imo. Otherwise it’s just a kebab in a tortilla, at least as kebabs are here, with fries amongst the meat. Don’t get me wrong, i like kebabs, but tacos aren’t a good advance.

It was good because they had an assortment of interesting sauces and they had falafel balls as an option instead of getting meat.

If this gets 'big' in the USA, the fad might last a bit longer than the Cronut did, since it is more like a meal than a dessert. But I suspect that the quality of the ingredients will suffer rapid decline once it is transplanted from France to the USA. The French may eat junk food, but they don't eat heavily adulterated crap made from semi-edible food-like components.

I wasn't a huge fan of french fries in it and the cheese was a bit too mild for me, but still would eat.

I don't like fries in general so I am sure that is just my weird thing about the tacos.

It looks like Philly steak calzone, with the meat spiced with the seven spices (etc) common in kebabs/shawarma (black pepper, cumin, paprika, coriander, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom). Not rocket science, and certainly not requiring the "finest" of ingredients.

Dunning-Kruger Overdrive (Sanpaku), Friday, 15 March 2019 23:50 (one week ago) Permalink

No, it's more like a huge burrito pressed into a panini envelope. The meat/main, toppings, and sauces are chosen like Chipotle.

Dunning-Kruger Overdrive (Sanpaku), Saturday, 16 March 2019 19:05 (six days ago) Permalink

The corn tortillas sold in the supermarkets here are abominations, more like galettes with a mix of flour and corn. I order my corn tortillas from a store in Austria of all places. Usa got us beat on this no question.

But these aren’t lavash, these are regular flour tortillas, labeled as such, some even listed as for fajitas. But they have Arabic labels too.

Wraps are usually flour and always available in Mediterranean/Middle Eastern/Turkish shops. I’m a big fan of za’atar naan, and suspect they would suit a French taco thing quite well.
