Mayonnaise is so popular in Japan that there is a restaurant in Tokyo called Mayonnaise Kitchen, which serves everything from Mayonnaise Fondue to Mayogaritas (mayonnaise flavoured margaritas) and offers cocktails in mayonnaise-rimmed (rather than salt-rimmed) glasses. These new potato chips are not only mayonnaise flavoured, they are drizzled with extra mayonnaise on top. But for some reason they smell and taste just like McDonalds cheeseburgers. Super tasty!

    Mmmm yeah, love mayonnaise. Also that yumyum sauce stuff (which is pretty much like mayo anyway).

    Oh wow (altho I worry about the national health implications of this! No wonder the Japanese have a high-risk chance of getting heart attacks.) I have always wondered what is the thing in Japanese mayo that makes it SO amazing (but am scared to find out, in case the magic ingredient is ground up squirrels or something.)

    I don’t know what it is either, but japanese friends say the best mayonnaise brand is Kewpie brand, and I think they are right. I tried other brands, because they all look the same and some are cheaper, but they have nothing on Kewpie! (Kewpie is the one with the pic of the little baby). There are about 20 different flavours and sizes of Kewpie mayonnaise, some are low-chol/low-cal!
