Secret Ingredient....Mario Batali's forehead sweat
Well, that did it. This thing is rigged. First jackass Bobby Flay wins over Sakai (total BS) and then the fat man wins over Morimoto. Is there no justice? Kyle was incensed that Bobby Flay's big dish was a freakin' fish taco.
The first show - Sakai vs. Flay - I thought Sakai kicked ass. WHATEVER. I'm over it. The second show - Batali vs. Morimoto - or as I like to call it, "Battle Ponytail" - was very close. First of all Batali is so fat he can't wear shorts or pants he has to wear SHANTS. Both did a really good job. I think the clincher was the fact that Batali served his soup in cracked open sea urchins. The best part about that show was the fact that Seinfeld's J. Peterman was a judge. If only he did the Peterman voice....
I bet those Iron Chefs can make a lot of money at their restaurants doing a special dinner night where they serve the things they thought up for the show.
And how awesome was Alton Brown as the Fuku-san character? That man knows his stuff. That's GOOD EATS.
