Sanji Himura: Depends. If you actually visited the place, then it would go under Restaurant Recommendations. If not, then maybe under Iron Chef/Challenger discussion.

okonomiyagi: Say I want to post a restaurant review of a chef featured on an iteration of the show: would that go under the board for the show, or under Iron Chef/Challenger discussion?

ironnut77: Sanji - I believe that "two victory" rule was in the very early days of the original show, scrapped after 1993 or so.

Sanji Himura: Few were brave enough to try it in ICJ, I can count a few of them off the top of my head, Toshiro Kandagawa is a top contender.

Sanji Himura: Tell me the truth here. Am I the only one who is slightly put off over the fact that the challenger in the final battle did NOT get to pick her Iron Chef of choice to do battle with? Two victories over an IC in ICJ earns a chef IC status...

Man Alive!: Those were the days! Kitchen Stadium took in many refugees from the wonderful Iron Fans community. I miss the old crew!

ironnut77: rosdaddy - ManAlive was indeed with us on IronFans. A bunch of the IronFans members followed him here once that site was defunct. Sadly, not many remain active today.

rosdaddy: Hey ManAlive - Nice to digitally meet you (or, re-meet if you were on the boards back in the early oughts)
May 11, 2022 23:23:38 GMT -5
Man Alive!: I'm still here! My heart swells every time I see renewed interest in Iron Chef!
May 5, 2022 1:38:18 GMT -5
ironnut77: Haven't seen ManAlive in a while - hope all is well, and that he can see the slight uptick in activity on this site recently. ICJ is STILL alive!

Man Alive!: A reboot of Iron Chef is coming to Netflix! And welcome, icfanus5!

icfanus5: Hello all and Happy New Year! Long time IC fan. Started watching when I was probably 10 or 11 years old, I'm 35 now! I'm sad to see a lot of the people no longer with us, like Kobe and Kandagawa.

Pick your favorite battle this week and why?
I much go with out of all battles this week is the truffles, because, it's very new to me. It's very different from a chocolate truffle (laugh) and I believe Michiba did a fine job with this battle. And Dr. Yukio Hattori is a very impressive challenger.
Future Miss Iron Chef USA and Miss Universe Iron Chef
Any battle that features IC Sakai is my favorite, so both his this past week were my favorite but, I was really moved watching Battle Cabbage. Challenger Hiromi Yamada's dishes certainly deserved the win. Yamada-san looked so sad, but I guess he had right to, a car accident like that is not something anyone could easily put behind them. I hope he was able to get his life back on track after that show. He does have a restaurant listed in our reference book: Ristorante Hiro. T Place B1F, 5-5-25 Minami Aoyama, Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan. There is also a photo of him in the book, he has a sort of sadness in his eyes. Dr. Hattori surprises me sometimes, he made a comment during this show to Takada-san when she hesitated with an answer saying ummm. Dr. Hattori said "umm is not an answer", which is what Judge Judy always says on her show. hmmm, does Dr. Hattori watch Judge Judy?
