Flavorful World’s Friday Fourplay offers up a bite-sized tidbit of info on each of the four food- and drink-related things we found most interesting each week.
Sushi + Burrito = Delicious
The Sushirrito may just be the latest in the long and ever-expanding line of food chimeras threatening to outlast the human race. Or it may be the best thing ever to happen to Asian/Latin fusion in a single action. San Francisco-based establishment Sushirrito claims to be the first of its kind: a sushi burrito restaurant concept. Combining the two in menu offerings with names like the Sumo Crunch and the Geisha’s Kiss, the establishment’s four locations serve up affordable made-to-order handheld sushi rolls that are almost too beautiful to eat. Emphasis on almost, as given half a chance, I would jump at the chance to sample any of these creations.

Beauty Is In The Eye of the Beer Holder
Carlsberg Breweries has launched a line of men’s grooming products that contains real beer. Given that barley, yeast, and hops are rich in vitamin B and Silicium, putting these to work benefiting skin and hair must have seemed like the logical next step for Carlsberg Laboratories (the brewer’s R&D branch) to take. A body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner are on sale as of this writing, and appear destined to relieve me in the near future of any pesky spare money I might have had taking up undue space in my pockets. Because my hair and skin are worth it, and for no other reason (he typed, opening his third beer of the night…)
This naturally speaks to my inner comic aficionado (a term I use for those times when the word “geek” just seems too short-sighted and dismissive.) While I’ve never held any particularly strong affection for the restaurant chain, it makes me smile nonetheless that Denny’s has partnered up with 20th Century Fox to debut a menu themed after classic Marvel comics superhero team The Fantastic Four. Its “Slamtastic” slate features a Fantastic 4-cheese omelette, an Invisible Woman Slam , a “Thing” burger, and a Human Torch sausage and egg skillet. includes. It’s no stretch to say I’d clobber such a menu and make every crumb disappear in less time than it takes the average stovetop to flame on. (Fans will see what I did there in that last sentence…)

Light Up Your Life and Your Gherkins
Every now and then we stumble across a story that defies description and falls into the realm of something you’ve just gotta see to understand. This chandelier springing from the minds of food artists Sam Bompas and Harry Parr utilizing real pickles as a light source is such a story. Enjoy. [Video courtesy of Vimeo channel Nowness]
