Mayoterrace to open this month

6 Comments

Kewpie Mayo has become an indispensable condiment to the daily dining routine of millions in Japan. However, where can devoted lovers of the sweet sauce go for information on the history and development of mayonnaise? Mayoterrace, that’s where.

The Mayoterrace facility will be divided into five sections when it opens near the end of May. First, upon entering the building, you will find yourself in the Salad Hall.

Decorated with cute vegetable stools and a giant cap of a mayonnaise bottle emblazoned with the Kewpie logo, it’s the perfect place to gather yourself before taking the full mayo experience.

If you head straight through the Salad Hall, you’ll enter the Factory Walk section where you can see how the mayo gets into those classic Kewpie bottles and enjoy getting a sense of how the factory workers and inspectors produce this delicious mayonnaise.

To the left of the Salad Hall lies the Mayo Dome. Inside this wooden structure built 50 times to scale of an actual 450g bottle of Kewpie Mayo, you may learn the secret of its deliciousness.

Heading to the right of the Salad Hall beyond Mayo Dome is the Kewpie Gallery. This circular enclosure’s walls are decorated with images outlining the history of mayonnaise and its usage over the years. The growth of the Kewpie Group can also be seen. The sconces with Kewpie bottle lamps are especially cool looking.

Finally, farthest to the right is the Kewpie Kitchen. Walking around and exploring the world of mayonnaise is bound to make you work up an appetite, so why not stop by the kitchen and try some vegetable and mayo combinations, you might find a new personal favorite.

The Mayoterrace will open its doors for the first time on May 26 in Chofu, Tokyo at the Sengawa Kewport. Tours will run four times a day for groups of up to 25 people. So remember, if you think mayonnaise and terraces don’t go well together, then you don’t know Mayoterrace.

Ugggh! Mayo is the most revolting and unhealthiest condiment out there. I can see the people that like this stuff go in happy and leave with clogged arteries.

I've never understood their need to cover anything and everything with mayonnaise here. It seems like half of the pastry sandwiches that they sell at combinis have more mayo than meat on them most of the time. There is also no reason to put it on pizza. 0 interest in going to the Mayoterrace.

I think the worst i slathering it over your veggies, takoyaki, okonomiyaki it just seems you can't get away from this junk.

Mass produced, commercial mayonnaise is unhealthy with its use of vegetable oils (usually soy or canola), numerous additives, preservatives and sugar. Mayonnaise made at home with whole egg, olive oil, dash of mustard, vinegar and salt is very healthy and aids in the better digestion of raw salads, etc.

If that were really true and I don't believe that for a second, why don't you see more doctors recommending it for a daily diet. If you want to indulge in the stuff once or twice a week, fine. But if you are an athlete and into heavy training, I don't think anyone would recommend it.

Roughly 80% of doctors praise the Mediterranean diet, particularly to avoid "clogged arteries". You can get a 1 tbs or two of oil dressing every day, and a couple of egg yolks a week, so mayo at each meal can be totally reasonable (depending on what you have with it). Cold pressed olive or walnut oil and organic eggs we mean, it's year lights away from the horrible kewpie ingredients in a plastic container that is probably Seveso level for chemicals.

you may learn the secret of its deliciousness.

The open secret of that unpleasant after-taste is MSG.
