Afraid of Vampires? The Stinking Rose is for You

Top Eight Ways that The Stinking Rose is Guaranteed to Ward Off Vampires:

  • Their motto is “we season our garlic with food.”
  • They serve 3,000 pounds of garlic every month. Every MONTH. Do you realize how light garlic is and just how much that translates to??
  • It’s home to the world’s longest garlic bread, which includes 2,635 individual bulbs of garlic.
  • Their 40-Clove Garlic Chicken really does include 40 cloves of garlic in every dish.
  • Where else can you get a garlic flavored ice cream?
  • Even the drinks are garlicky with their signature garlic martini topping the list.
  • Local Virgin Atlantic Cabin Crew members aren’t allowed to eat at the Stinking Rose any more because of passenger complaints about their stinky breath.
  • Previous customers claim that it sometimes takes 3 days for the garlic breath to fade.

I can’t imagine this being a great place to have to walk by everyday, but their menu does sound delicious. Fortunately, once cooked, garlic is not nearly as strong as it is raw…as I learned first hand by eating whole cloves at my first shrimp boil party.

So while forty cloves of garlic may be a bit excessive to actually eat, the flavor would be mild and probably quite delicious. Just don’t sit within a 5 foot radius of me for a few days!
