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)

Man Alive!: I'm still here! My heart swells every time I see renewed interest in Iron Chef!

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!

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.

Well, here it is!
One summers day, we all went on a trip to visit the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. We were all walking the square garden and so just then we saw Iron Chef Morimoto. Iron Chef Mandy began screaming like a banchee and had to be stopped completely. So Iron Chef Morimoto went to Iron Chef Mandy and said hi, which made Mandy happy as heck! Morimoto led us to his new stretch limo and bottle of champagne. "Crank the music!" said Morimoto. But just then, Kandagawa came in and said he wants to challenge Morimoto. Morimoto accepts the challenge...the theme ingredient must be something by the name of "SHARK!" screamed Mandy. Everyone was delighted when they heard Chairman Kaga shout "ALLEZ CUISINE!" "Live shark?!" said Iron Chef Sakai. As usual, Sakai hates live things, so first he had his assistants be the terminators. Iron Chef Sakai did magic but when he ran up to the steps, where the tank with the secret ingredient was, he reached in, and grabbed the tail with both hands. His assistants used a big net to grab it and take it to the counter. That's when Kaga flipped his cape to show that he's not afraid, but when he saw the shark he squealed like "I'M NOT TOUCHING THAT!" He was excited to be here, but Kaga became very angry and closed Kitchen Stadium down for today. The next day, bright and early, once everybody had eaten their breakfast, brushed their teeth and got dressed with their hats on their heads, they all sang "Cumbiya my Lord." They then heard a loud noise that sounded like a rumble beneath Kaga's stomach. Kaga then shouted "HOLLY COW! IT MUST BE AN EARTHQUAKE! MAYBE IT'S A VOLCANO ERUPTING!!" The Iron Chefs all stated that Kaga has the loudest stomach, ever. They all decided to feed Kaga something that cured his craving for chocolate ice cream and those tiny yummy chocolate sprinkles. Sakai made it even better with trout ice cream and some of grilled beef teriyaki. "Gonna be sick!" said Chef Michiba. When Kaga tasted the trout and teriayki he said "Come here puppy! Here's your dinner!" But the dog started to talk! He said that Sakai is a good chef and his food is sometimes strange. Well, moving on, Kaga said that he wanted the puppy, but the puppy wanted something to eat. Kaga-san gave the puppy something to eat, took him for a walk, and brought it some chocolate cake. Kaga didn't know puppies shouldn't eat chocolate, and puppy got very sick. Puppy got well and Kaga decided no more chocolate! Let's do ice cream and so, Kaga-san led the way to the ice cream. Pick your poison! "I want vanilla" said Kaga. :"I want strawberry" replied Sakai. Chen deiced on Coconut Carmel. "Add some sprinkles" were the request of Kobe and Morimoto. All the Iron Chef's enjoyed their treat except Kobe-san, he wanted to swim. Going to the pool, Kobe-san called Kaga. "Let's get wet! Take your clothes off and get changed because we can''t wear clothes if we swim!" But Chen felt a little embarrassed because he didn't know how to swim or float. So Chen says "I..." Kaga interrupted "As soon as you learn how to swim, you can go deep diving and exploring." In the end, Chen smiled wide. "Get me floaters and I will sit on them and they will hold me up and I'll float. I don't want to be splashed, so please understand." All the Iron Chefs just might melt without a splash! In the end, it doesn't matter because everyone goes in. They all had rockin' good times. "Let's play games" said Sakai. "Great how about rock paper, scissors?" And they all laughed till they decided to play. So they went to the park and played volleyball. It was great fun. Then Nakamura-san said "It's time to get home." Sakai agreed and they boarded the big boat. And so they crashed for the shores of Japan and fell asleep. When they woke up, they discovered that they had arrived in a big red limousine. So they have no idea where they were headed so to Kitchen Stadium they went! When Kaga noticed them coming here he hurried up and got the place ready for dinner. Hattori-san cooked the marshmallows for sugar sweet treats. He also made lobster sushi rolls sprinkled with truffles and pizza. When the Iron Chefs arrived they took control because Kaga said "GET TO WORK!" So they start cooking. But that's when the gong of fate had rung! This meant that a special battle was up next! The theme was celery, onion and bell peppers! So the Iron Chefs started the best and biggest pot of veggie soup you ever tasted. After the battle all the Iron Chefs celebrated a victory with no challenger and tasty food.
LOL. That was a nice story.. Who wants to do the next one?
