Being here in India, I was automatically exposed to new foods that I had never seen or heard of before. The first couple of weeks here I would just get the chicken ___ where the ____ was a word I was unable to pronounce and that didn’t matter much anyways since every version of the ___ all tasted the same; to put a picture in your head, it is a small bowl of pretty much just sauce with one chicken leg in it with 3 pieces of roti bread. Basically you dip the bread into the sauce and break the chicken up and eat it using the bread to grab it with the sauce. Eventually, I couldn’t eat the chicken anymore because I was so tired of it, so I started tasting other people’s lunches and getting new things for myself. Lately I have been on an egg bhurji kick since it isn’t covered with an extreme amount of sauce and I feel like it is healthier than most of the other options presented to me. Plus it tastes pretty good.
Anyways, although I have been trying to eat new foods my best food experience was when another girl from UofM, Erin, and I went to Mumbai and went to this cute restaurant. I wish I could say that I got some spectacular Indian food to enhance my experience, but that is actually opposite of what this experience was. We had been eating Indian food at least twice a day for a month already, so this memorable food experience was so memorable because we ended up getting a chicken quesadilla, chicken tenders, and french fries and sharing them all. If I were at home I don’t think this meal would have been anything to die for, but here it was pretty glorious.
I wish I could attach some of the pictures of the food I have eaten, however I haven’t actually taken any pictures of any food so this post will remain pictureless.
