We have many more important things to talk about, but one thing that I wanted to discuss a bit is food. We have only been here a week and have had many experiences with food. We’ve eaten Japanese, Indian, Australian, and American. We’ve experienced a couple of chain restaurants, and we’ve discovered that it is very important to know how to read labels. For example, I let Adam go get lunch at the store the other day. He came back with what he thought was surprisingly cheap chicken. We mixed it with spaghetti and bit in excitedly to find that it was rather rubbery and decidedly not chicken. Neither one of us was able to finish it, and when I asked the dear lady who has been our translator what in the world we were eating, she informed me that it was chopped up internal organs. That put a bit of a damper on things. Thankfully, other than that we have managed to avoid anything too crazy… Anyway, I thought I would share some of that. In the video below, you can see Adam trying out the McDonald’s french fries. Surprisingly, the McD’s chicken actually looks and tastes like real chicken. It’s quite amazing.
While we have eaten out a number of times, I have also been cooking quite a bit. There are lots of premade packets with things to mix with rice. I also discovered that I could make rice pudding with leftover rice, and it turned out quite delicious. I managed to make naan on our griddle although it wasn’t nearly as big as the real stuff but it was still pretty good. Aaand now I’m done for real.
