Just came across these two articles. Suggestions on what the mame would say will be welcome. πŸ™‚


A Chicago tavern said on Thursday it will begin selling chicken wings coated in one of the world’s hottest peppers — a dish so hot that patrons first have to sign a waiver agreeing not to sue for injuries.

Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap said the wings made with Red Savina pepper will be served with an alarm bell for patrons to summon waiters with sour cream, milk sugar and white bread if things get out of hand.

Levy Restaurants, which owns the tavern, said its chef d’Cuisine Robin Rosenberg had been working on the concept for years but was never sure he’d be able to serve it. [Full article]

Makes me wonder whether there’s a loophole for mixing milchig and fleishig if the milchige dish serves as a way to relieve the pain of the fleishige dish. πŸ™‚

The home of Mickey Mouse, Tigger and Tinkerbell has banned kids from its fanciest restaurant.

Beginning this week, children under 10 are no longer welcome at Victoria & Albert’s in the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Victoria & Albert’s is Walt Disney World’s only restaurant with an AAA five-diamond rating.

“We want to be the restaurant that’s available for that adult experience,” said general manager Israel Perez. [Full article]

About the author



  • The best I’ve ever done was eat skewers of meat dripping in super-hot peri-peri sauce at the kosher Nando’s in Johannesberg, S.A.

    My son quit after 2 meat chunks. I finished mine and his. Then I had to swallow down an unknown number of pitchers of water to douse the flames.

    Never again.

  • Ima would say that waivers are for ashkenazim. We’d eat that shit without batting an eyelash, but we won’t because it’s treiff and only goyim eat treiff.

  • ck, there must be something to it as the most common seasonings among Ashkenazim seem to be salt, garlic and dill. πŸ˜‰

    We have found that while we slosh Tabasco sauce on everything we eat, our Sepharadi friends and their children, who happily chow down everything with s’chug or charif, cannot handle a drop of Tabasco.

  • A drop of Tabasco? Who can even taste a drop? Your children’s Sephardi friends must be Syrian or Persian or something.

  • A friend of mine once bought some hot sauce that, according to the label, could still be felt (as it’s a pain stimulus, not a taste) if dilluted in the contents of an average swimming pool. The label also warned against oral intercourse for 48 hours following consumption. What it actually was like, I cannot tell as they had a guys-only chilli (British spelling) eating event, and all we were told later was, “It always burns twice”.

    We Polocks do! And not just plain ol’ Tabasco. Oh no no no! We’re deep into Habanero, no less. It’s to die for! πŸ™‚

    Of course, you could go for something that’s about 150 times hotter.

    Your childrenÒ€ℒs Sephardi friends must be Syrian or Persian or something.

    Nope. N. African. It’s very unusual.

  • And they’re all rosaceae. Rose seeds make good itching powder. πŸ™‚

  • Shy Guy, ck, here’s something for your next b’day (if you celebrate that goyishe thing πŸ˜‰ ) wishlist: hotsauceworld.

  • Birthdays can be very Jewish. It depends how you celebrate them.

    Thanks for the HotSauceWorld link. LOL!

  • The celebrating of b’days came up with the Reformation. πŸ™‚ Anyhow, why won’t you guys have a guys-only eating-things-to-boast-about event?

  • Most Charedim don’t celebrate their b’days on grounds of it not being an actual Jewish tradition. You sort that challenge out with ck; horseradish goes well with smoked salmon.

  • Well bully for “most Chareidim”.

    I like my smoked salmon with goyishe capers and pearl onions.

  • Pearl onions are called “Silberzwiebeln” in German. πŸ™‚ Never been into capers.

  • is oral sex kosher?

    if seed is wasted in the process would be forbidden by jewish law,,,,,,spicy or not

  • Froylein when adressing the Rabbi especially if you want a Heter you should show some respect, I will look into your particular circumstances and try to obtain a heter for you but only if you keep it secret !!!!

  • on second thoughts we could apply what would your mame say to the whole issue of Oral, would be good to know mames perspective
