No, it's really good actually. The little capsules burst when you bite them and it has a mild flavor, the actual seaweed has some texture to it. Tiny bit of seawater flavor but the tomato and onion and citrus balance out really well. It's one of my favorite sides at wet markets here.

I could only find one food photo, and it's me showing my birthday cake to the camera in Mendoza, Argentina. Some cousins surprised me with it after lunch one day. I think there was coffee served with the cake; the red wine in the foreground went with the meal, not the dessert. My age? Just turned 56.

What are the litte piggies in Beijing made out of?

We had a "lechon bread" like that once, the shape and color of lechon but made out of bread. I think I have a picture of it somewhere.

Steve,

I actually don't know, I didn't have any. I suspect they are some kind of confectionery, but don't really know. It was either that or re-post my picture of balls, but I already posted that one. Or I could have posted scorpions, snakes, silkworm cocoons...

We stayed in mid-level lodges in Namibia (I know, I am tourist) and the food was very good. That particular item was in a hotel restaurant in Swakopmund. My wife is a very well mannered woman (makes you wonder why she married me) and I thought she was going to lick the plate.

Nice photos folks!
Except bens.

Whenevah i see pictures of food from traveling, it makes me wish i could get in the habit.....
Generally, when the food comes, the last thing im thinking about is a camera, im hungry!

But i wanna play, so i found a few.....

My favorite 50 cent burger in SA, and trust me, i had a lot of em, and a bunch from this place during my 3 months in town.
From a super little tiny corner shop in arequipa peru. Basically coooked on a 2 burner camping stove.
One of my favorite toppings you get on burgers in SA are the potato chips that are like little french fries, i forget the name.
The soda is local arequipa. It was kinda like cream soda, but good, as compared to inca kola, which is not.

Image

One of hundreds of my famous guac and tomato sandwiches that have been consumed......
6 sandwiches for under a buck, amazing. I loved how at the tiendas you could buy one, single serving condiment pack for like 10 cents if the urge struck, though sometimes you get lucky and there is mayo packet in the potato chips.
A frisbee makes a great cutting board, just gotta be carefull not to cut to hard.
Photo is at the ruins of huanuquillo, on the outskirts of tarma, in central andean peru.

Image

Daily jugo de maracuya..... Jugos are what i mi55 most food wise from my time in SA.
Sooooo cheeeep, sooooo fresh, sooooo good.....
From cali, colombia. Though available in most parts of SA i visited, colombia had the best maracuya, by far, imo.

I don't think it's fair of me to post this here, as I thought this tasted actually quite good, but anyway:

This is me eating a fried cricket or a grasshopper in Thailand. They didn't look very appetizing but they tasted ok!

AND I ate a whole small bagful of them!

Oh, and this is from a food market I went to with my brother's maid -- she did all of the food shopping for my brother's family there (except for meat). A great place! Here's just a pic of one of the sea food tables there... coz I love seafood... and because it was SO cheap there. Loved it.

Worse. As the guest, I was served my meal before the rest of the family ate. They all sat in a row on the long cushioned bench and watched me take every mouthful. It would have been very uncomfortable even if the food had been wonderful. As I struggled to eat the yak fat without gagging, it was excruciatingly so.

The most bizarre "authentic local" dish of all time: Pollo Motulenos in Yucatan. Originating from the town of Motul in the Yucatan. This is a plate of refried beans, topped with tortilla chips, topped with fried plantains, with a piece of chicken cooked in achiote and orange juice on top, which is covered with a tomato sauce, which is topped with chopped ham and peas and cheese.

But the best meal of the trip was at a restaurant called Top Spot in Kuching. I had the best lobster of my life, bbq baby stingray, stir fried midin( fern tips). My husband is not a seafood eater so got the black pepper chicken. It was an enormous portion and best version I had ever had.
