A legend in my own mind



Try a new food for the first time and then post about it.

Cabelas elk burger

When a Cabelas sporting goods store oped near us, my dad got very excited and dragged me there with him.  I don't know why since neither of us hunts.  While we were there, he insisted on eating at their food court.  Since I had never tried elk meat, before I ordered an elk burger.  Burger was a terrible misnomer since they served me some desiccated elk meat, cut deli meat style, between two slices of sandwich bread with a slice of cheese.  The elk wasn't bad.  It had a very similar tase and consistancy to beef, but a little less sweet.  I put two pieces of meat in a napkin and brought them home to Bos and Ber who liked it a lot more than I did.  

Conclusion: I'll stick to beef and 7$ for an elk sandwich is robbery.

Hehe.

In America I tried a Mexican burrito for the first time. That's spicy beans and meat and rice wrapped in an edible foil. It was okay once or twice, but then I found a burrito made by some guy who probably hadn't made one before.. or eaten one made by himself.

It made me want to puke. The edible foil, I kid you not, tasted and felt like perspired skin, only worse. The contents twisted my stomach.

I've never eaten a burrito since, and I want to puke anytime I find any of the burrito spices in a food. "Tastes like burrito!" is the worst thing on my list of bad things. :smile:

Well.. nothing has been that new lately, although there are subtle differences. The German national dish is actually Turkish (it's partly a joke and mostly true, heh) - there are Döner kebap places everywhere. I know at least five in the vicinity of the university.

Anyway, my favorite meal there has become a Yufka, which is essentially a soft tortilla filled with meat, lettuce, red onions, and sauce. Great stuff for 3,50.

I tried fried cow's lungs recently. Didn't like it, because of the strong bovine taste and the tough texture. Though my colleague said that stall had over-fried it, so maybe that's it. But I'm still putting aside the cow's lungs in my nasi ambeng.

Rice with lots of different spicy Malay sides: curry mutton, bean sprouts, and I forget what.

Quiche.  Bad spelling.  bad.

Egss cream, vegetables, and meat baked into a pie-like thing.

The one I tried had swiss cheese and spinach.  It had a very nice texture but not much flavor.

Quiche is great with lots of Tabasco sauce!

I'll have to make my own some time and see if I can do it right.  That one I had tasted like scrambled eggs.

Curry is nothing like burrito, I assure you, unless you had a curry burrito. o.o

Yogurt that tastes like coffee that tastes like chai tea.

Chai tea is like black tea with steamed milk and cinnamon.

Doesn't work in Mandarin. =P I keep thinking it's vegetable tea, but I know that can't be right.

Googling it seems to say it's a kind of spiced Indian tea. I didn't even know there was a name for Indian spiced tea. All I knew was that the Indians put spices in their tea and my favourite is cinnamon. Marvelous stuff. ^^

edit: thanks Bearic :smile: The West is a weird and wonderful place. Yoghurt latte chai tea indeed. I'll stick with bubble tea. XD

Mine turn to be puzzled.

Bubble tea?
