The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let F&W do it for you. Here, four of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Insanely Garnished Bloody Mary: The garnish is one of the most important components in a great bloody mary. Acceptable garnishes include celery, olives, pickles, carrot sticks—even a shrimp or two. But an entire chicken is going overboard. Vancouver’s Score on Davie is offering a $60 (US$ 53) bloody mary garnished with not only a roast chicken, but also a burger, a slider, chicken wings, onion rings, a hot dog topped with pulled pork and mac and cheese, a brownie and, in a nod to tradition, a pickle.
Beer for Zombies: If the inevitable zombie apocalypse is taking too long to happen and you just can’t wait to become a decaying, brain-eating automaton, there’s a beer for you. Philadelphia-based Dock Street Brewery is releasing Dock Street Walker beer made with real, actual, once-were-used-for-thinking brains (goat brains to be precise). Also in the mix: cranberries, for that nice tang that brings out the brain flavor.
