The Cajun Asian conspiracy!

Published by at 3:43 am under I Don't Get It

cajun or asian food court

People, we have lived in the dark long enough. It is time for us to rise up, cast off our blinders and ask the difficult questions. What the fuck is the difference between the Cajun restaurant and the Asian restaurant at your local mall food court?

Are we really so gullible that a simple name change can influence our taste buds so easily? Stop by “Wok and Roll” and order the glazed chicken with rice and tell me it’s any different the bourbon chicken with rice at “Ben Yay’s Cajun Shack.” The wool is firmly over our eyes and that wool is soaked in glazed meat! They are serving the exact same menu, WAKE UP YOU IDIOTS!

And while you’re at it Casian restaurant workers, can you please stop forcing glazed meat on a toothpick in my face while I walk by on my way to “The Great Potato Catastrophe?” I don’t want your ethnically ambiguous mystery meat jabbed into my eyes if it’s OK with you.

    there are THREE of these in a row at my mall. Asian, Cajun and BBQ. Their kitchens connect in the back.

    My friend is a vegetarian and actualy yacked on the feet of one of the guys shoving a honey chicken chunk o’ flesh in her face

    Billmiguk – You need new friends. Start looking in the “casual encounters” section of craigslist, there seems to be a lot of guys looking to hang out in a casual style over there.

    Sara – You on the other hand should keep your barfing friends.

    this is hilarious! those unidentifiable pieces of “chicken” soaked in sweet glaze always gave me the chills… plus, u get a bucket of it for like 10 cents… um, I’ll pass.

    people eat at malls? wait a minute – malls still exist? i haven’t been to a mall in years. what planet do i live on?

    still though, i see your point. it’s just like at Taco Bell (or Taco Smell, as i call it) – they just keep keep making new items using the same 5 ingredients. you aren’t fooling us Taco Smell! i’m taking my business to Chipotle.

    Taco Bell is genius. I’m surprised they don’t just launch the Extreme 180 Taco – which would simply be one of their tacos turned upside-down. It would probably be a big hit.

    Taco Smell? go all the way will it “Toxic Smell”

  8. calebon 27 Jul 2010 at 11:22 am

    Toxic Smell – i like it! i think i will start using that from now on.

    The only difference is that Asian restaurants use cat, dog and rat meat. Well O.K. maybe some Cajuns use rat!

  10. billmigukon 28 Jul 2010 at 7:19 am

    Jim Jones – Wow….that’s not even “funny” offensive. And although I cannot speak to the salivary qualities of cat and rat, I can say from personal experience that dog is delicious (albeit, a bit greasy).

    I’ve been a fan of Listy for quite some time now but this is the first time I have felt the need to post a response because “casian” is what I call my daughter!

    I am from southern Louisiana and am 100% inbred cajun. My wife is from Singapore and is 100% all kinds of Asian. So I guess that makes my daughter Casian.

    Both of these foods looked watered down as hell. Typical cajun foods (the kind of cajun foods you eat at a house on stilts where the nearest stoplight is 20 miles away) are gumbo, etouffee, bisque, boiled crawfish, fried catfish, boiled/fried shrimp, etc. If you showed that plate pictured to a cajun (has to have at least one incestious relative), they would go straight to their gun rack while yelling “go back the way you came, (racial epithet), this is why (insert race here, usually black) are taking over the world!” I hate to stereotype my own ethnic culture but man if you only knew the shit that goes on down there.

    On the flip side, I have been to Singapore and Hong Kong many times and lived in Japan for 5 years, and you hardly get Asian food that looks like that. If they served the kind of stuff I ate out there over here in Amerika I think they would get about 3 customers a month.

    Mackwiz – I’m sorry to drag your daughter’s nickname through the mud. Your comment was both interesting and funny… something I don’t allow on this site. Please refrain from being more clever than me, it just exposes how little effort I put into my “writing.”

    This reminds me of an old Steve Martin routine, where he says that at McDonald’s they have one giant vat of stuff where everything comes out.

    Cheeseburger – plop!
    Strawberry milkshake – plop!
    Fries – plop!
    Here’s your change – plop!

    Perhaps they have a similar vat at Ye Olde Food Court?

    Also a born and raised Cajun… have to agree with Mackwiz. No way in HELL is a true Cajun eating that crap. And as someone who’s been to Japan, no one there is eating this crap either!!!

    Why do I feel that this topic is all WONG?
