Food as xenophobia

Wandering around the back alleys of the internet (having just this evening dined at a first-class restaurant, review to come) looking for something food-related, I happened across this excoriating review of Langan's Brasserie in London. It was notable not for the restaurant, which apparently had seen much better days, but for its delightful essay and rich language. I present it here for your gratuitous enjoyment.

*That* is a review!

"...Portuguese food is really cheap Spanish food made for ugly dwarves" made me laugh out loud.

This I have GOT to see! Some places, I've noticed, are well worth visiting just for the unique language.

Brilliant - pure literary and culinary brilliance....

a knife edged sharpness of tongue and wit.

It sounds like everything I love about Anthony Bourdain - accept its missing the foul language :)

Thank you for this!
