another good one steph!
trust me being greek we have some questionable
delicassies ourselves...considering tripe is the specialty
dish served on easter dinner...and most popular w/afterhours
greek taverns(in greece)...really this is not unusual for me,lol
smoochies the scrunchy face
So does Maybull.
yikes!i'm not a fan of tripe but i'm glad you don't think
maybull would be considered a goddess for loving tripe!!!
There are huge ethnic communities here and I love to go into some of their stores just to poke around. There's a Russian store not too far from where I live with some fascinating stuff in it. Some stuff I recognize and others I can only guess at.
Every so often I find myself staring at a food item, eventually figuring out what it is and thinking - yikes!! But I love that people can buy this stuff.
The one here has only a relatively small selection of food items... nothing like this place. But it does have a lot of beauty items (soaps, creams, etc.) that fascinate me. A lot of the products only have Slavic writing on them so I have no idea what they are.
I love your column and envy you the opportunity to discover these neat places!
Not sure if you remember Gina w/Lana..but Lana is going blind and I was hoping you could give her some support with all your experiences with Stella.
Very interesting. One of my favorites is ox tail soup. I also understand people eat spleen, my dogs go crazy for beef spleen, maybe even more than liver.
Uh, don't like tripe? Don't eat the McRib
Mean people still suck
I also make a mean oxtail. I've never made spleen, but in fancy restaurants, where they're called sweetbreads, you'll pay a ton. I hope the dogs appreciate that when they eat spleen.
