6:00 AM -- Russia is the new fast food capital of the world, according to a report in The New York Times, which contains the following on-the-scene reporting that is just too tasty to let slide:
On a recent Sunday, Mr. Mamayev padded into the hallway of his apartment building in boxer shorts to take delivery of a pie topped with chorizo, salami, ham, Italian sausage and pepperoni.
If it were me, I'd throw out the gherkins, strain a few teaspoons of the lightly-salted remnants into a frozen tumbler, top off with vodka and -- voila! -- the filthiest dirty martini you've ever tasted. That meat pizza is bad for your heart, you know.
“All I have in the refrigerator is a jar of lightly salted pickles,” said Mr. Mamayev, a 32-year-old diesel mechanic. “I thought, that’s not really something to eat. It’s easy and fast to order pizza. And pizza is tasty.”
