Slippery chicken meal: the cook will grease up a live chicken and try to catch it while running through the restaurant.

Ad Hoc Meal. We make it up as we go, like we did with our menu. But you can be damn sure it will contain thickbamboolotussavory.

Used to call it “leftovers” but ad hoc sounded swankier.

Assuming the Lotus position on a piece of Bamboo, would be, err, surprising.

Scene from the Asection of Bamboo.

We’re losing him. Nurse we need a litre of intravenous Sweet and Sour sauce. Ready the Monosodium Glutamate. Ready with the Soy. NOW! Infuse 100 grams of Tofu.
Too late. We’ve lost him. Into the Steak and Blackbean with him.

OK. I can roughly understand the rest.

WTF is a Griskin Meal.

If you tell me it is made of ground up Griskins, sorta like Cornmeal. I may seek you out. 😈
