Touch the Heart

Today I had the wonderful opportunity of going to a chinese restaurant, and not the regular white boy kind, but the legit Chinese kind. I went with my friend Scott and some of his Engineer buddies. It turns out when you go to a real restaurant they come around with carts and you just take what you like and share around the table! It's called dim sum. It was a super neat experience.

Luckily Scott's friends are experts and one of the even speaks Chinese, which helped with the whole process. We ate cool things like cow intestines, squid, some other weird chewy thing, and various dumplings. My favourite was definitely the lobster dumplings and the Chinese donut things. I have to say, I think they choices of sauces is what makes the difference, I may have enjoyed the tripe with a little hot sauce, but thats probably because I've grown up in the western world, and have a taste for familiar things.

On another note, I expanded my horizon and conquered a personal enemy as I was convinced (by Scott) to eat a piece of pineapple, yes you heard me right, pineapple, a whole piece! Turns out it wasn't as bad as I thought. Don't get me wrong, this hasn't fixed my aversion to fruit, but I think I'm making some progress!
