'We Try It' is a regular series where we try the latest off-beat eats.
Scrolling through the annals of investigative journalism that is the We Try It column, it's clear there's been an emphasis on fucked up fast food and dodgy drinks. Interesting then, that this latest addition to the pantheon is a combination of the two.
We present: the "Food Bloody Mary." That may or may not be its actual name, but it's what servers at The Caxton described when we enquired of the enormous, beskewered beverage, which is a hidden 'off menu' item on the popular Dagu Lu sports bar's menu. "It'll take a few minutes," one of them cautioned.
But what a vivid beauty it is. The RMB118 drink contains: one hamburger slider, three crunchy fried chicken wings, one halved chicken sausage, one halved pork sausage wrapped in bacon, two celery sticks, skewered olives and another of pickles and tomatoes.
In truth, the Foody Mary isn't bad at all. We only filed it under "So You Don't Have To" because you could probably enjoy its accoutrements more via traditional plate, rather than precariously hovering over a tankard of watery tomato juice and vodka.
Novelty factor and Instagram 'Like' accruement: 10/10. Taste: you're probably better off getting a Little Creatures beer and one of their hearty breakfasts.
