Mayo mayhem

The Japanese love of mayonnaise is nothing new, with the egg-based dressing used on a whole host of foodstuffs – fried chicken being the top choice by all accounts.

    Saw a Japanese tv segment several years ago about a small restaurant/bar with a similar menu. But it included mayonnaise based drinks (non-alcoholic and alcoholic). Looked perfectly revolting.
