    It was pretty good but too greasy for me (though I think it was the mixture of the adobo and sazon than the grease). Still I liked it but it's not something I'd cook everyday.

    Oh yeah and I had some Surullos. They're like these fried corn logs with meat in it. Kinda likea tamalae but not quite. It was okay but nothing I'd eat everyday.
    Sounds like an awesome experience! I can't wait until I can afford to travel and experience different countries (and their cuisine) like that. You're so lucky!

    I'm not a meat eater, although I do eat seafood. I'll pretty much eat anything else. Not picky about much as far as veggies, seafood, fruit, grains, noodle dishes, vegetarian dishes, etc. I can make do with anything.

    i'll pretty much try anything once. except insects and anything endangered.
    the weirdest/most exotic animal i've tried is probably tepezcuintle, this giant rodent found in central america. tasty.

    Hmm, I think I would try insects (if they're little and crispy like, say, fried crickets), but wouldn't eat any animal's brains. Brains gross me out.

    My former hairstylist is from Vietnam and she says they would eat "spider butt" growing up. Eek.

    i've had veal brains. delicious if they're well prepared.
    i'll eat any part of a cow or veal and i think i pretty much have. mainly travelling in france. i don't think they've ever met an animal or animal part they couldn't make delicious. the only thing i really hate is beef tongue.

    but no bugs for me.

    Wasabi is like a drug to me LOL. Spicy stuff gets me stoned.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I love eating and experimenting with foods unfamiliar to me. One of the great things about urban Canada now is the selection of foods from all over the world reflecting the various immigrant populations. Vancouver is especially good for this.

    If anyone wants some quick and easy curry recipes to make at home (shock!) then let me know. I am the Queen Of Curries LOL I lived in Little Calcutta in west London for a long time.

    If I'd been a fussy eater as a kid I'd have starved. My mother cooked a wide variety of things but we were expected to at least try them. Over the years I don't think there's anything I haven't tried and I've lived to tell the tale. I know I dislike oysters - but only after I tried them, not just the idea of them. Not mad about a few other things either but I'll eat them if that's all there is on offer.

    mmmm.... sounds yum. I totally forgot that I had the tandoori chicken too. It was really good as well. My dad was trying to figure out how it was cooked so he had my look up tandoor on wiki and found out that it's a clay oven thing. He was wondering why it tasted so smoky....

    Curry recipes definitely welcome! I've discovered I'm a fan.

    Check out my Thai Chicken Coconut recipe in Recipes. It has bell pepper and coconut in it so that might be a new experience too! It's very easy to make and you can make it as strong/mild as you like using the Thai curry paste you can buy readymade in a jar. Give it a go and I hope you like it. My kids (not curry fans) both love it.

    If you want Indian curries tell me what meat and veggies you like and I'll come up with something.

    Mashed potatoes come in boxes?

    ^^I've printed that one and plan to make it this weekend. I would love to see you post some of your other recipes. I love Indian and Thai cuisine but haven't had much luck with recipes pulled from my web searches. If I know someone has tried something and likes it, I'm always willing to give it a go~
