Did you have any desserts, scuba? I'm one of those weird people who loves the mango sago, and the black rice pudding with coconut milk. And sago gula Melaka.

I didn't. I'm one of those even weirder people that never eats desserts. Just don't really like sweet stuff that much. About once every 3 months I eat an ice cream, but that's it.

If you don't like sweet stuff, stay away from sago gula Melaka

The brown stuff tastes like the darkest, almost burned, liquid toffee. Evil but wonderful.

Like scuba, I don't care about dessert and almost never have it. But I do like mango & sticky rice. I think it's the only Asian dessert I've ever liked, but I haven't tried all that many.

Dunhuang's the one with the famous night market. However, since you posted that same picture in October and said it was in Turpan, I think it was in Turpan.

I have a set of 6 of those exact same plates in storage back in Austin. I also have 2 cazuelas (clay cooking pots) with the same design.

Your Mexico food makes me miss being near Mexico. It takes so much effort to hunt down the right ingredients and make it here that it sometimes kills the joy of just eating good Mexican food.

They were really good. That was the first time I'd had quinoa as well. It was very yummy.

Alpaca is great. Actually, had lots of great food in Peru. I've never been much for taking pictures of it though.

Here's one that Mr_Scrubb calls "2 crabs". I wasn't actually in a bad mood, I just look that way. It's in Quito at a small cafe with a couple tables on the sidewalk. And it was delicious.

Then Chinnu, the daughter of the homestay owner, made me try her style of breakfast.

Poppadom, putt, sugar and banana. It was as dry as Ghandi's flip flop but I had to eat it all as they were watching....awkward!
