The last ingredient in the Japanese recipe is "Kaitei no mitsu" which translates to "deep sea nectar/honey". Dr. Awkward at Unfiction did a Google search for it and only one page came up, a restaurant review by "deliciousmacdoob" on Menuism.com. The unusual review mentions the source of the "Seabed’s Nectar" which the chef claims came from a company in Honshu, Japan called Tagruato. Using that info, MrToasty discovered Tagruato.jp.
On the site, there are some definite ties to Slusho:
- Ganu Yoshida is the CEO (he's also mentioned in the Slusho.jp history)
- Slusho! is one of the subsidiary companies
- There are various mentions of Slusho throughout the site
- One of the subsidiaries is Bold Futura. Anyone remember that name? It came up in the discussion about "Overnight" being the name of the movie. The owner of the US trademark for Slusho! is Bold Futura, LLC.
The newest station, Chuai, opening in September 2007, is also the closest station to New York. Could deep sea drilling be what disturbed the monster and caused the attack?
The site is pretty big, with a lot of information to look at, so have a peek and let me know what you find!
* Thanks to MrToasty for emailing me about this first!
