I haven’t posted in so long due to extensive travel. However, my trips did involved some culinary extravaganza in places such as Thailand, Japan and Rome (also went to London and the “gastropub” trend is just stupid). Rome has INCREDIBLE cuisine, but I bet living there, you get a bit tired of eating pasta and meat, with the occasional artichoke and eggplant thrown in here and there.
I think I am officially burned out on one of my favorite foods – pasta ala vongole. Never thought I would type those words. When in Rome, I think I saw about two Indian, a few Ethiopian, and many Chinese restaurants. What New York lacks in history, beauty and SPQR-ness, it does excel in a tremendous amount of diverse cuisines. You can get Senegalese, Ukranian, Vietnamese, Aghanistanian (!), Tibetan, soul food, and tacos at the cart on 14th street any time, day or night. God bless gotham city.
