El Yucateco's chile habanero verde cured me off Sriracha for good.

Is it easy to find in a standard supermarket? Because if so when this bottle runs out I'll give it a try.

I'm not sure, but if you look there, definitely try the Mexican section. I always buy it at the supermercado, though.

My local supermercado recently got shut down, after a federal audit forced them to fire 300 illegal workers on their books. I was upset! Now I have to drive a mile further to get my menudo. Hooray Arizona.

Is that green chili hab sauce the very bright neon green stuff? I think I liked that, but the color threw me off. Taste was good, but color was unnatural. I guess sriracha's unnatural too, but fire engine red's more palatable than radioactive green.

Fire engine red can be faked as ketchup and put onto friends grilled foods.

Yep, that's the one. It does look a touch radioactive, I'll admit. It's addictive, though. Make sure to get the green though, it's much better than the red.

I had quite the food adventure this weekend.

We went to my friend's podunk town and tried their local famous dish: Horumon yaki udon.

Yakiudon is just like yakisoba except with udon instead of... actually, most yakisoba doesn't soba noodles, but ramen noodles, but you know what I mean. Oil, sauce, cabbage, lots of udon. Except the meat was awful. Pardon me: it was offal. Horumon is all the leftovers: intenstines, heart, liver, anus. Yeah, anus. We had rings of chewy bland... flesh? with spiky starfish-lookin' things coming off of them all up in our otherwise-pretty-tasty noodles.

None of us had moral or squicky objections to eating most of these things, it's just that they don't fucking taste good. Except heart. I really like that one.


Then we had a big dinner party at the local bar, where they served up hotpot featuring an angler fish. The lightbulb-on-a-stalk one. The meat was actually super delicious.


For lunch the next day we had fried deer cutlets and deer burgers (the town's other famous local dish).

Offal is very hit or miss. I don't like Mexican tripas- they're bland and ridiculously chewy. Chitlins, on the other hand, are great. It's the exact same thing, but stewed in a spicy vinegar and pepper sauce. They're tender, spicy, and delicious.

Curiosity got the better of me today: I had a $3 cupcake.

It was a vanilla rum cupcake with some pretty-well-done banana-cream frosting. And it was pretty good!

I'll probably restrict it to that one try -- but if ever I organize a event with a good budget where I need desserts, I have their contact info.

My wife had a craving for greek food last night, so we found a greek place nearby, and I tried a gyro for the first time! It was pretty good, I already knew I liked pita bread, but that mystery meat was way better than I expected. I also liked that they didn't skimp on the meat, I ordered mine plain, since I don't really like vegetables, and they stuffed that thing full of meat. I can't wait to go back and have another.

... note that he didn't say "fruit." That surely means he can still enjoy tomatoes & olives, right?

They're gross. Corn is the only vegetable that I actually like, as in I'll eat them by choice, but they're are others that I'll tolerate under the right circumstances. Peas and carrots are alright with butter and salt, and broccoli and carrots are good in stir fry, but I haven't liked them any other way I've tried them.

I do like fruit more, like apples, bananas, oranges, peaches, and strawberries. But when it comes down it, I'm just really picky.

I'm kinda the opposite, I love most vegetables, but the texture and flavor of most fruits (or at least, most things culturally categorized as fruits) is a big turnoff.

Never tried 'em, but I don't like onion rings, so I don't think I'll like 'em grilled either.

Onions are disgusting and overpowering unless you cook them until their cellular structure breaks down and they become a limp shadow of themselves. Putting uncooked/undercooked onion in food is a handy way to make sure it's impossible to taste any other flavor that might happen to be present.

i love thinly sliced red onions in salads and as accompaniments to indian food, when dressed lightly with lemon and cilantro.

and i love grilled and caramelized and translucent onions in food. garlic and onions are pretty fundamental to anything i make.

not eating onions is so...jain.

Parish absolutely has the right of it. You cook those things until they ain't got no more hate in them. Grills rarely do this.

I eat onions! But like pickles, if you're not real careful with them, whatever they're in tastes... just like onions.

I will say it once more:

Pay the little bit extra and just use shallots.

Yeah, I'm all for grilling the hell of some onions but on a sub or in a breakfast burrito they should be thinly sliced/diced white onions and not cooked at all.
