Fave Friday – Bizarre Foods

February 12, 2010

So wifey sent me a link to a Yahoo! article titled “20 weird food combinations people eat“, and thought it might make an interesting topic for us to discuss on this here blog. Y’all down? To expand our topic area up a bit more, let’s also include “bizarre foods” in general (ala Andrew Zimmern) in the convo. Cool? Cool!

Weird Food Combos (to others?) I Eat:
* Raw eggs cracked over hot rice and shoyu
* Cucumbers dipped in shoyu + mayonaise dip
* Sometimes I mix my mac salad in my gravy. Yeah, not very weird to us, but perhaps to da non-locals?

Bizarre Foods (to me):
* Frog legs – never had it, but somewhat interested. Tastes like chicken right? πŸ˜‰
* Basashi (raw horse) – had it, but doused it with shoyu. Tasted just like maguro sashimi.
* Balut – never had it, and am a bit afraid. πŸ˜› Tastes just like ___?

Post your votes for weird food combos and/or bizarre foods in the comment area below. Doesn’t have to necessarily be stuffs you actually ate.

On a side note, here’s an amusing image from the Super Bowl that was sent to me by kuya.d. Too funny!

Mid-Week BBQ

June 26, 2008

My buddy Tommy and his fiancee Magaret came down from Californ-I-A for our good friend Dicson’s (and Roda’s) wedding. Last night was their last night here, so in true, Hawaii fashion, we threw him a Pau Hana, BBQ style. Here are some scenes from the night.

Talk to me:

  • Gots any of your own BBQ stories to share?
  • Looking forward to a little 4th of July BBQ action?
  • I’m looking for a new and interesting recipe for BBQ-ing. I got the typical miso chicken, red wine steaks, etc. action. Anyone care to share their winnah recipe for me to sample? πŸ™‚
  • Or, if you don’t BBQ, what’s the best potluck stuffs from around town to pick up? (e.g. kalbi from Gina’s, fried chicken from KJ’s, etc.). Where else?

P.S. This blog is scheduled to be featured in the rail promo area of tomorrow’s print edition. Be sure to pick one up so you can see my beautiful mug, er, see what exciting post I have lined up for you guys (online) tomorrow! Hint: “WhereΒ In Hawaii…” Yeah YEAH!
