Thumbs Up Name a food from your culture that most people have never tried but would prolly love

Figured i'd try to bring a little life back to the food forum because i love russo that much

i thought of this just now as i was eating lychee. for those of you that don't know, lychee is a fruit that's very popular in china, and for good reason. i can't even imagine how someone could think it doesnt taste good; it would be like hating ice cream or chocolate chip cookies. i'm not sure if you can get it in regular supermarkets, but it's available in most asian supermarkets, so if you have one near you, it's definitely worth checking out.

read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lychee

That is what the little cube is made out of in those little Jello like cups right?? If so, I love that stuff. Almost like a pear, but better.

As for my culture. My family is from Bolivia, not many people know about Saltenas but whenever I have someone try one they love it!

I guess a good way to describe a Saltena would be if a pot pie and an empanada had a child, and that child was way better than both of its parents it would be a Saltena

balut is the scariest, the others not so much.

For my "culture" I don't know...Grew up in Hawaii where it's a melting pot of asian, american and polynesian cultures and then throw some jewish into the mix. I ate all types of **** growing up so I couldn't really single out one culture that I was raised with. I did have a couple of housekeepers along the way too, one Chinese and the other Peruvian that brought their cultural dishes into the mix too.
hmm, maybe Spam for the hawaiian culture or gefilte fish for the jewish culture.

Does anyone know a restaurant in NYC that serves balut? I've always wanted to try it. I can't buy it from a grocery store because I wouldn't know how to prepare it.

If you can get past how it looks and what's in it you'll probably like it.

The Boudin I get is pork heart / liver with dirty rice and all kinds of spices. Really good but well... I have been eating it all my life and can still have trouble getting it down if I start thinking about eating pork heart.

being "italian" i will say that my favorite thing to eat is bruschetta with proscuitto di parma... fresh fresh fresh

when i went to verona, i went to a restaurant called "il cenacolo" ... meaning the last supper

bruschetta over there is garlic bread essentially. get some partially stale bread, brush it with some extra virgin olive oil, and then cut a big garlic clove in half and rub it all over the oil side... no butter, herbs, or garlic on the bread... just rub it in there realllllly nice

none of that tomatoe/basil/mozzarella bullshit

bake until half crispy/half chewy... not toasted, but slightly golden. serve that with some fresh THINLY slice Prosciutto di Parma or Prosciutto di San Daniele... so simple, clean, and delicious.

Yep... doing that tonight
