My sister and I eat out together fairly often. We both like Mexican restaurants, but there is one food served there that we do not agree on. She finds it tasteless. She can’t stand the texture or the color. If it comes with a dinner she orders, she asks for it on the side. Because I love it! Can you guess what it is? Guacamole!! Actually, I really like avocado however it is served.
At one restaurant we like, they serve a chicken soup with pieces of avocado that is so delicious! Of course my sister never has tried it. She will not even try guacamole with chips. A restaurant near my house has a lunch special- avocado enchiladas. It is so yummy! I had it for lunch today. My sister did not. She likes seafood enchiladas. Yuck.
I ate avocado a lot when we lived in Peru. It was called palta. It was part of the salad at a favorite restaurant, Pardo’s, which served “pollo a al brasa” (rotisserie chicken)and other Peruvian specialties (such as anticuchos- a kebab made with beef heart). The salad had beets, avocado, carrots and green beans with a special dressing.
At home in Lima, our empleada made an egg and avocado salad that was so great for a sandwich to pack for lunch. Now sometimes for a lunch to take to school, I will pack avocado slices and tortillas. Simple and good! It is beyond my sister’s imagination.
Is there a food you love that someone close to you hates?
