As the “Black Mamba” Kobe Bryant calls it quits, once and for all, we want to remember the food that fueled the greatest basketball player in the world.
Apparently, Kobe’s favorite dish of all time is frog legs dipped in honey garlic sauce.
I remember Kobe saying it on an ESPN Los Angeles radio show, could have been “Mason & Ireland,” but over time it became one of those common things that all Laker fans knew, like, that Kobe only gets 4 hours of sleep, or that he flies a helicopter to stay away from L.A. traffic.
Regardless of the original source, Kobe is the primary reason you might hear Angelenos say that they love the French dish, because Laker fans are nuts like that.
Kobe has also been spotted at the Cheesecake Factory a few times, so don’t think he only shoots for the upscale, French delicacies— sometimes the greatest basketball player of all time enjoys affordable eats just like you and I.
