I've been intimidated by Chinatown. I'm hoping this group will help me change that.
No particular restaurant. I just want to try new things. Im stumped for a favorite. I'm crazy about sushi and sashimi. I don't like bell peppers. I've been trying Mediterranean and Indian restaurants lately.
Haha. These things don't seem strange any more, but my students always get a kick when I list the "weird" things I've eaten, such as octopus, eel, shark, conch, deer, rabbit, etc. Probably my strangest experience was in a Chinese restaurant in Cambodia, where I ordered chicken from the menu, and got, what seemed to be, half a bisected bird that had been boiled, then submersed in ice water, and laid on a plate. Which makes my most adventurous experience, uh, cold chicken.
Yes, I do enjoy Asian foods. Chinese is probably the favorite, because so much of my comfort food choices come from this category. But, I also love miso and udon and sashimi. And, the lemongrass, peanut, coconut flavors in Thai dishes. Plus, anything with ginger is simply divine.
Hmmm. I've always wanted to explore Chinatown. I love learning new things. I'd like to meet more people with a similar curiosity about the world.
Hi, I'm Renee. This is a fabulous idea for a Meet Up group! I can't wait to learn more about Chinatown and meet new people.
