I am so glad BootsnAll posed the question:
What is the Strangest Food You’ve Eaten While Traveling?
for Day 10 of #Indie30 challenge.
Answers I Considered.
Poutines? – Only Canadians think they are not strange.
Insects? – Nuh – 80% of the World’s cultures eat them.
Liver and Pineapple Salad? – While these two ingredients are quite normal by themselves, put them together in a Salad and that’s kinda strange. We ate such a salad at a Lokantasi in Istanbul but alas I couldn’t locate the photographic evidence. But hey, I couldn’t dream that combo up if I tried.
My Answer – Read On
If you were to eat Balik Emek (Fish on Bread) in Istanbul what would you choose as a accompaniment? Chips, Tomato Sauce, Tartare Sauce, Vinegar….
If you said vinegar you are on the right track.
If you said cabbage and gherkins pickled in pink vinegar and served in a disposable plastic cup you would be freakishly correct!
And what do you drink to wash down your Balik Emek and Tursu (pickles)?
Why Pink Pickle Juice of course.
You knew it didn’t you?? 🙂
