Thank you for checking us out! We are Introducing this week’s tasty one dish. Make sure you eat it cold!

Skinless chicken breast – 2, cut in halves

Sōmen noodles – 10 oz.

Watercress – 1/2 cup cut into small strips

Turnip – 1/2 cup, thinly sliced

Shiitake Mushrooms – 1/2 cup

Chicken stock – 1/3 cup

Sake – 2 tbsp.

Sugar – 1/2 tsp.

Deep Sea Nectar – 1 pinch

In a small saucepan, stir together 1/3 cup water, chicken stock, sake, and sugar. Chill it until it becomes cold. Grill the chicken breast on both sides for about 8 minutes, and then chill. Boil the noodles for about 3 minutes, and then run under cold water until chilled. Mix the watercress, radish, and mushrooms into the sōmen. Slice the chicken thinly and arrange on top of the sōmen mix. Just before you serve, put the deep sea nectar in the sauce and pour over the noodles generously.

Go Go Delicious Chef!


(Goddammit – as I write this, the official site’s “monster roar” just kicked in. Damn you, Abrams!)

Eventually, at some point today, someone found ANOTHER site: – a corporation tied into Slusho, the fictional drink treat of 1-18-08. The validity of the site is being called into question, still, explore the site, concoct your own theories on how all of this shit ties together.

I do like a few key words at on the Tagruato site: “explorers” and “deep sea drilling.” Does a bunch of underwater miners accidentally unearth a cave and release a beast? Will a crazed crustacean at New York City in 1-18-08? It’s Deep Star Six all over again, baby! (That was sarcasm, kiddies.)
