WEIRDEST FOODS I CAN'T STOP EATING
Or at least that I can't stop eating on the rare instance that they're in front of me. That make sense? I'm a vegetarian, so this won't get particularly weird. Here we go nonetheless. @olive, I thank thee.
- •HuitlacocheCorn smut, a rich mushy fungus thing. Great in a quesadilla.
- •Salty turnip and eggThis is a comforting omelet-esque dish at Ruen Pair in Thai Town. It is both simple and magical.
- •Beet and sumac sodaA choice refreshmer from the Madcapra genius jammers.
- •JackfruitWonderful meat substitute. Dense and exotic and ideally made spicy.
- •Any (savory) crispy rice dish.What's a lover of crispy rice to do if he doesn't get off on the sickly sweet situation that is the Rice Krispy Treat? Savory situations ahoy! (see SQIRL, Night + Market Song).
- •Singani 63From the website: SINGANI 63 IS THE CULMINATION OF A 51-YEAR, PRIVATELY FUNDED PROJECT KNOWN AS THE STEVEN SODERBERGH ADVENTURE, THE PURPOSE OF WHICH IS TO IDENTIFY THE EXCEPTIONAL IN ALL AREAS OF HUMAN ENDEAVOR. A CLEAR, MIXABLE SPIRIT DISTILLED FROM THE AROMATIC WHITE MUSCAT OF ALEXANDRIA GRAPE AT HEIGHTS NEARING 6000FT (WHICH IS REALLY F#&*ING HIGH, DUDE), SINGANI 63 WAS CREATED IN THE YEAR 1246+284 (AROUND 1530), AND IS KNOWN AS THE NATIONAL DRINK OF BOLIVIA.
- •NopalesI resisted cactus for many years. Cuz ah it's slimy. But once I started digging on okra, I discovered the joy of nopales. A great pleasure in life is eggs scrambled with nopales. Preferably placed in a homemade tortilla. You can get said scramble at Loteria.
- •Absinthe panna cotta with gooseberry coulisHad this at the rehearsal wedding over the weekend in Vermont. Fucking A.
- •Sweet potato leavesI devoured a mound of these gently sautéed jammers from Pine & Crane the other day. Turned my shit green. I'd do it again. I don't give a fuck.
- •Charcoal LemonadeFrom Juice Served Here. Hi @loganpuss. I also brush with an activated charcoal toothbrush. Detoxilicious!
- •Burnt carrotsFirst jammed upon at Manfred & Vin in Copenhagen. Then devoured at Commissary. Seems like a bad move, and then it very much ain't.
