Woah, you have a tumblr?! Right then.
My favorite food.
This is going to be terribly boring for you, I’m afraid, but I suppose all of these questions have to be answered. It’s hard to pick a favorite, and oh, I love food. My standard answer has always been “feijoada,” the traditional Brazilian dish made with meat and black beans, specifically made by my mother, usually accompanied by “churrasco,” which is basically just tons of choice meat, grilled on the spot, seasoned most of the time with only salt (but done so to perfection). It’s still a pretty good answer. Just writing about it has made me pretty hungry.
As I subsisted in Italy on a diet of pizza, pasta, brioche, and cappuccinos, however, there are two things in particular that I’ve been craving immensely from home: Torchy’s tacos (a local place that started as a food cart), specifically their green chile pork tacos with chips+queso and avocado. My other favorite taco place is Arandas, where I went for lunch every day when I attended community college down south; they have one of the most perfect monterrey+chorizo tacos ever made, and fantastic tacos al pastor. The second is a sandwich Avenue B, my favorite sandwich place only two blocks from my home (where I have my own sandwich, the quail: honey oat bread with salami, ham, garlic habañero mayo, provolone, and olives). They make their sandwiches with awesome, fresh ingredients and my favorite brand of bread, Oroweat.
No, you’re not allowed to make fun of me for having a favorite brand of bread. Don’t tell me you don’t.
If your aim was to make me both hungry and miss home, boy, you have succeeded. Grumble grumble (that was my stomach).
