Hello to all!!
As the say goes: I wasn’t dead, I was just partying!! LOL! Well, as you know, my “Sous chef” and I were celebrating our anniversary and just came back last Wednesday. I took some 200 pictures of different foods we ate in the food paradise NYC is! I will be sharing them on the coming weekends, explaining how, where, etc. until I run out of pictures, which could take a while, considering we pigged out big time.
I’ll begin by sharing what I ate in a Jamaican restaurant that in Astoria Boulevard with 103 St., in Queens, New York (near the La Guardia Airport)
I ate an extraordinarily flavorful and tremendously well-known meal: rice with pigeon peas and coconut with stewed goat. The flavors were very familiar, with a lightly different touch. The goat meat was mildly hot (as is traditional also in the Dominican Republic) but everything was very flavorful.
I also tried their “Island Drink”. The flavor is pleasant, resembling that of a fruit punch, although it is a little bit too spicy for my taste, since they make heavy use of ginger.
I strongly recommend the goat and the coconut rice.
Next weekend I will continue sharing pictures of the trip!
