Son of Gigan first introduced me to this wonder of culinary delight; it's his usual final course at Claim Jumpers ...and it's totally gay. This large cupcake is delivered on a plate sprinkled with powdered sugar and a tiny cup filled with melted chocolate for pouring. The cupcake itself comes with a little frosting on top and a petite shortbread cookie sticking out of the swirled dollop.
And it's the GREATEST, most satisfying dessert you'll ever have.
The last two times I've been there, I've had to share an order with T-Bear (who actually called the restaurant "Clam Diggers"--and meant it--the first time we went there). It's not easy to get to the dessert...CJ has some of the biggest portions of any restaurant,--the chicken fried steak is TWO giant plates made of breaded meat--so you'll have to consciously save room for the cupcake.
And don't be tempted by their six-layer chocolate brick, "The Mother Lode", it's big and it looks just like the turd you're going to lay after you eat it. For high-class elegance after your platter of turkey and heart attack, go for the Red Velvet Cupcake.
Train Cancelled After Conductor Succumbs to Diarrhea
OSAKA -- About 300 passengers were forced to leave a train at JR Tsukaguchi Station in Amagasaki after the conductor suffered a violent bout of diarrhea in the driver's cabin early on Friday, West Japan Railway Co. (JR West) said.
The evacuation took place after the conductor fell ill just before the train pulled in at Tsukaguchi Station. The driver scheduled to take over the train entered the cabin at about 6.15 a.m. to find the floor covered in feces.
Station workers immediately cleaned the floor of the driver's room, but decided to cancel the train due to the lingering aroma.
Passengers were merely told that the train would be delayed, and were asked to board the next one.
