    anyone used food for self defence

    Nerd jumped out and assumed Karate stance which I found almost as amusing as moped/shirtless did.

    "This is gonna be good!" I thought.
    Karate nerd kicked the shit out of moped/shirtless guy, oddly enough
    It looked straight out of a Shotokan manual too, fucking rising blocks and reverse punches and all.
    I went to Rainbow Drive In afterwards and had a mixed plate.
    Watching people Karate shirtless moped riders is hungry business.

    What defences did you use against that dinner?
    And would you even call it a dinner?
    As it is a heart / artery killer, that is for sure.

    That is no dinner. That, gentle reader, is a legend.
    The Rainbow Drive In mixed plate is the quintessential Hawai'ian post-surf, hike, sex, marijuana binge, what have you/all of the above lunch plate and has been for many years.

    After a morning of sun, sex and surf, nothing will induce a food coma quite like that combination of chicken cutlet, teri beef and fried fish you see above.
    The starchy white rice foils the flavors and ensures a good insulin workout.
    The macaroni "salad" (read: "an excuse to eat mayonnaise") slows gut motility and adds more fat, just in case.

    In short, NO CAN DEFENSE.
    Of course some people order it with gravy or chili all over too, but that's just overkill folks.

      That is simultaneously awesome and disgusting. As a southerner, I am no stranger to fried foods. But that.....in one meal....no. That's enough meat for several meals. That's like a month's worth of dietary cheating right there.

        The best part about those gravy on top motherfuckers is there's no way in hell to finish it before all the gravy cools and sets up.
        A lot of them still clean the plate.
        I don't know what's up with the giant slice of curiously pungent onion they use in their burgers though.
        1 onion for 4 burgers or something?
        Wtf?

        Rainbow's is at the eastern end of Waikiki so it's pretty damn crowded too.
        I wonder how many calories go through their hands in a day...

          Looks to me like a way-more appetizing version of the Garbage Plate, something you'll never see me eating:

          Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

            It's just 9 bucks too, which over here is less than a McDs meal.
            Ymmv.

              That's a lot of food for $9. I can see why it's popular. I just spent $23 on some gourmet tacos, probably 1/4 to 1/3 the amount of food on the Rainbow.

                Greasy food and cold gravy. Ugh.

                  Yikes!
                  This is right down the street for the acai inclined.

                  Or something like this:



                  It's a toss up on scenery.
                  It's puzzling the number of fit looking people inhaling mixed plates.
                  Hell of a cheat day I guess!

                    This thread is making me think. Like I said, I'm in the south and fried food and barbecue is stereotypically southern. But I don't even know many places to go and get food like that anymore.

                    Barbecue is easy but really good barbecue is usually found in pricier restaurants. There aren't many places where you can just grab good barbecue on a paper plate and pay $10 for it. Same thing with fried food. Everything has to be all fancy now.

                    There's a loophole, though. Rural fire departments like to do fish fries and shit like that to raise money. That's where the real southern shit is. Where a bunch of country boys stand around a smoker all day drinking beer and then fill your plate up for a few bucks.

                      We used to do shit like that at the Legion. They probably still do, I just stopped going because it was me (an actual Legion member) and a bunch of tweeners (Sons and Daughters). We didn't gel. But, the food was always good, and way cheap. Two or three times a year, I get together with some buddies that will smoke a couple hundred pounds of ribs and sell them for $20 a rack. They actually won some local awards, this year.

                        Shit is different now than it was when I was a kid. My grandma could cook like a motherfucker. Of course, old folks didn't have any choice. They had to be able to cook. Women are forgetting how to do that shit.

                        I'm taking the power back, though. My daughter likes to cook and I sent her to some classes. Now she can make biscuits from scratch just like my grandma used to make. That was money well spent.

                            I've made a tradition of cooking Sunday breakfast for the wife and kids. Usually, it's pancakes, occasionally waffles, crepes about once a year. I make all my batters from scratch. Interspersed with eggs to order, and usually we have bacon or sausage, too.

                            My wife digs the over-easy eggs I cook inside a nice thick ring of red onion on a pool of butter, usually with some salty cheese sprinkled on top.

                              I have said it before and I will say it again I love my Sous Vide machine. It pretty much is cheating when it comes to making food.
