I went on holiday recently and part of the trip was spent on the Gold Coast of Australia. While I was there I knocked off three things from my list.
Barramundi was really nice. I don’t normally care for seafood that much, but I would definitely eat this more often if it wasn’t so inconveniently located. Yum.
I bought a meat pie from a pie shop beside the motorway. My friend asked the lady for the most Australian pie. It was tasty, even if I did drop the whole thing on the floor before I ate it.
Moreton Bay is really close to where I stayed, so it was easy to find somewhere with the bugs. I ate them in a really nice restaurant, and they were pretty good. It’s not the nicest thing I’ve ever eaten by any stretch of the imagination, but I definitely wasn’t going to miss out on checking this one off while I was there. My friend Dan had them prepared a different way and his looked much more interesting, so I’ve uploaded a picture of his meal instead of mine. :)
Only two more items to go. I have a feeling that alligator will be considerably easier than guinea pig. 5 months ago
I’m in Singapore at the moment and so I’ve had a chance to try durian for the first time.
The smell is pretty bad. The texture is sort of like a slimey avocado. If you can get past both of those things then the actual flesh of the fruit is pretty nice.
It does seem like a lot of effort for a small amount of fruit though, as most of each segment is a big seed. 6 months ago
This should really be number 43 as I had it quite a while ago. I saw some sliced reindeer (sounds weird to say that) in the Ikea food store when I went there with Cheryl and I had it in some delicious sandwiches at work.
Nice, but not exactly common around here so I probably won’t be having it again for a while. 16 months ago
I had shark’s fin soup at a Chinese restaurant last night. It tasted like generic seafood, so yeah. Pretty much what I expected, won’t be bothering with it again as it’s probably been made in a terrible cruel way. 16 months ago
