Yesterday I went to something called the "Heritage Festival". It features numerous countries, each with their own tent and food. What fun! It was hot, sunny and beautiful! No clouds, just uninterrupted sky with the bright sun shining down.
Before I went to the festival I printed out the list of all the countries' menus and decided on the food I had to try. I made sure I only picked things I hadn't tried before and/or hard to find on a normal occasion.
This is what I tried:
- Bison skewer (Aboriginal)
- Beijing Duck Wrap with cold noodles and special sauce (Chinese)
- Okonomi Yaki > Japanese style pizza, not really like pizza at at all (Japan)
- Bulgogi Taco (Korea)
- Kroket > a deep fried delicious mixture with meat and spices (Dutch)
- Nacatamales > pork cooked with corn flour wrapped in a banana leaf (Nicaragua)
- Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas (Peru)
- Zalabia > fried Egyptian donuts with sugary topping (Eqypt)
- Halo Halo > a "drink" with crushed ice, covered in ice cream, sugar and milk (Philippines)
- Mango Smoothie > crushed ice, sugar, ice cream and mango (Venezuela)
If I had to say what I enjoyed the most it would be a very tough call. All of the food I tried was unique and different. Of course I loved the Frozen Chocolate Banana but as far as an entree meal goes I would have to say the Nacatamales. It was very good! The texture was soft and squishy while the taste was delicious and tender. I've never had anything like it! I definitely would have went back for more.
I highly recommend trying new food. Variety is the spice of life.
