Kuma Schaumburg’s Vôdûn burger

“Shrunken heads, broken legs, body parts on the concrete,
Cut ’em up butcher style, gators of the swamp.
Red light, leave ’em dead, running like a track meet.
Scared of nobody, what you motherfuckers want?
Believe me when I tell ’em I’m a bogeyman beast,
Leave ’em slashed from their head to their feet.
Pin bricks to the chest of a bitch well fed,
Cooking meat, cannibal trying to eat.”
– Sam B, “Who Do You Voodoo”

Hong Kong Grub: The Butcher’s Club’s The Hogtown

” I lay there, and watched the God I had created die. At the end, when we were cold as the stone we had hewn his body from, when the lights were nearly all extinguished, we heard, in the silent distance, the man-pigs singing to one another. Then, as the last lights went out, and we lay together in the deep, they drifted away, and all was silent. Such a silence I have never known. And as the dust settled on my open eyes, and we lay together embraced forever, I heard, miles above us, the sounds of the city turning over in its sleep. A churchbell ringing out – and in that moment, the new century was born.” – Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs

THE HOGTOWN

  • Pulled pork
  • Canadian peameal bacon
  • Smoked Gouda cheese
