    I made a nice mayonnaise yesterday with a fairly plain olive oil - personally I was a bit dissappointed. much prefer it made with a good extra virgin with lots of solids, mmm the taste. :)

    Well, I've seen the Kewpie mayo in the asian section at my local woolies. So, I think I'll go grab some S&W this week, and maybe some Kewpie just to test as well.

    Thanks everyone :thumbup:

    Most of the Mayo's on fast food out here is Kraft Foodservice stuff. It's okay, better than most of the supermarket varieties.

    My local Charcoal Chicken has the most awesome Ceasar dressing - I think it is Kraft Foodservice stuff too. I get that on a Schnitzel Roll.... something that I came up with and most people in that shop are switching to it as it gives a much nicer taste with a bit of a pepper kick.

    Any foodservice place will sell it to you.... you can actually save quite a bit of money buying small finger-food stuff for parties in larger quantities from foodservice mobs instead of the supermarket.

    Random old thread necromance!

    Did you ever actually figure it out BigandY?

    Have also been on this fruitless search for the mayo they use on oporto/ogalo/chargrill charlies for quite some time myself..
    the only thing that comes close is Best Foods. Pretty close, but just lacks something? Asked one of owner guys at an ogalo
    years ago what they used, who of course told me it was a secret, but gave me the hint that it comes from the US.

    Which brings me here - after a random google this week, I find this thread - having previously tried practically every other
    mayo I could find I went to the extreme of ordering the two different Kraft food service types this week (premium and free
    range whole egg).. first one very sugary/vinegary, second one had that onion/garlic powder taste.. damn awful! :Paranoid:

    In my search I've tried:
    *Thommy/S&W/kewpie - all the supermarket brands.. nope.
    *royal line Belgium mayonnaise - although good, very different (Harris Farm has it)
    *Masterfoods food service mayo (think it was just as bad as kraft iirc)
    *Remia/calve and another dutch brand - Nope (but all still better than most supermarket crap)
    *Making my own - NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE :Paranoid:

    I think the only American type I haven't tried is Dukes, but afaik there's no local importer so it's going to be a pain to get.

    we get a gigantic tub at costco. It's "american" style - much fuller than australian mayo.

    don't recall the brand at the moment

    I know they import the Mayo which is why they charge so much for prego sauce ill see if i can find out from someone i know who use to own an Oles store.

    How did you make it?

    I'm not sure what qualities you are wanting, because I usually get sauce with a bit of oomph rather than just mayo.

    Have you tried the Paul Newman? That's quite nice.

    It's always been a mystery to me, the quality of cafe condiements vs what we have at home.

    I have never had a mayo or aoli even close to pub/cafe style...

    That's probably more a comment on how terrible a cook I am, I tried a recipe a few years back and it just tasted odd, I vaguely remember it being eggs oil and lemon juice? :tongue:

    It's a salty creamy kind of mayo, not sweet or too tangy.. Not sure if I've tried the newman one, tried so many now that I've kind of forgotten a few :Paranoid:
