    Long ago, probably before most people now here were here, we had a thread devoted to Restaurant Haiku. The idea was to encapsulate a notable restaurant using the classical 5-7-5 syllable form. And now it's back, just in time for the cabin fever that seems to be rampant around town.

    It may not always be obvious what the restaurant is, but if you're not sure, look for puns and other clues in the word choices-- and if you feel like it, compose your own!

    Herbs on dogs? Why not!
    Britney gyrates for tube elk
    Corn dogs meet sauternes

    * * *

    Smithy stokes gold flames
    Bufala bubbles on crust
    Burnt like Pompeii ash

    * * *

    If you can bear sight
    Of modifications, try
    Eggcellent burgers

    * * *

    Like Kirk's foe, sequel
    Is posher than old dhaba
    But still tastes fiery

    * * *

    Mackerel glistened
    Kids and grandmas called it home
    Has sun set for good?

    Nubby noodles bathe
    A lake of fire and huajiao
    Shirt is red. Surprise.

    Fauxhawks work the room
    Slinging whimsy and trip hop
    Quail egg gushes forth

    Spicy gilt pickle
    Oily chile heat sublime
    Amusingly free

    I'm more for Kerouac's Blues and Haikus (rereleased by Rhino in the early-90's as part of a cassette boxset...and further released a few years ago, maybe? Anyway, he doesn't adhere to form, but lets the line drift as it might, Zoot Sims the improvising pied piper)

    They hang on death row
    These birds can't see the sun sign
    That's a load of tripe!

    Maybe my brain is addled, or are these haiku getting more obscure?

    It's a snowy day
    I wish I had a pizza

    Slight variation on Steve Z's

    Snowflakes bury car
    Winter returns with vengeance
    Order in pizza
    What is patriotism, but the love of good things we ate in our childhood?
