I'm not an explorative eater.
At the deli by my work I get an Italian sandwich, with just meat, cheese and bread. The deli man calls it “plain and boring".
Ethnic found wise, Americanized tacos or Chinese food is about as crazy as I get. I never go to places that don't have cheeseburgers or a deep fat fryer on hand.
So the other night I went to dinner with some friends. They said the name of the restaurant, and it was some little place I've never heard of. When I got there come to find out it was Salvadorian food. Hmmm... Is that like Mexican food?
Everyone there was getting these things called pupusas. It’s like a quesadilla but you put this cabbage stuff on top of it and drizzle some strange sauce on top of that. I was way out of my element there, but thought I'd get crazy and live a litte. I tried the pupusas. Well, I didn't like it too much. But I tried it, and that is saying something (ask my parents, they'll tell you).
Today, I thought I'd get crazy again and tried a corned beef sandwich for lunch, in honor of St. Patrick's Day coming up and all. I have a co worker who used to live in Ireland, and she told me how to order it. Well it was actually really good!
Now I'm not going to get crazy with weird foods, but I'm feeling empowered by my recent ethnic food exploration. Does anyone have a particular type of food they like and would recommend?
I'm not looking to eat lamb, or duck heads anything but am curious as to what those adventurous people out there eat.
Waiting for James to arrive!
