Gluttonous Queens try to bankrupt a buffet

tomokoandfriends.jpg

In her most recent blog entry, Tomoko Miyake reports that she and her sister, Naoko, went to a buffet for lunch Saturday with several finalists from the 2006 and 2007 “Gluttonous Queen” contests. They arrived when the restaurant opened at 11am and stayed until the lunch buffet closed until 4pm. Tomoko thinks she ate the least of her party.


The buffet they ate at, Rouji
not only offers all you can eat food and non alcoholic drinks, but also includes unlimited alcoholic beverages for an extra fee (1200 yen for men, 900 yen for women)

Gal Sone repeats as “Gluttonous Queen”, Tomoko Miyake 2nd

eating01small.jpg eating02small.jpg tshirt02small.jpg

herpdaddy watched last night’s “Gluttonous Queen II” contest and wrote a blog entry in English about it (he also has some funny Japanese T shirts with English on them in his post.) He reports about the final noodle contest:

So she made it to the final round with 2 other women both equally thin and the final round was ramen noodles. Mmmm. I mean, it’s GOOD but how much can you really eat? Apparently an incredible amount. Each serving was a standard sized serving but they got a break. So they don’t burn themselves, they did not have to drink the soup. But they did have to eat all of the noodles and the major toppings including a thin slice of Chinese roast pork.

I have to admit, I was glued to the TV. I mean, it’s just 3 girls pigging out but it was just amazing how much they were able to put away.

In the end, Gal Sone won for the 2nd year in a row with 16 bowls of ramen in 1 hour. Eeeeeeeeesh…

Tomoko Miyake came in second (possibly tying with another woman) with 14 bowls. I believe that Suguwara was removed by medical personel (like “The Artist” was in last fall’s gluttonous king contest), but I am not sure about that. Hopefully R Suzuki will have a full writeup.

“Gluttonous Queen” produced a conflict over television watching in one household last night: (automatically translated by Google)

… Because with the father tried to change the channel into the gluttonous queen championship of TV Tokyo Channel 12, Ltd.,

Tomoko Miyake vs. Maids Advocacy Association?

miyakekosupure.jpg

Don “Moses” Lerman is not the only eater who likes to wear costumes. Tomoko Miyake (三宅智子) dresses as a Christmas elf, a French maid and a cheerleader in recent entries in her blog. We will have to wait and see if Tomoko receives any criticism from any maids advocacy organizations for wearing a maid’s outfit when she is not really a maid. ;)
