Who says a blog like the Ethicurean is humor impaired? We had to laugh out loud after this entry had us going for a good long while. It’s about a “live tortilla bar” in Oakland:
I had no idea that Mexican food in the U.S. could be so adventurous. Behind the bar there was a container of the tortillas, wriggling furiously. Every now and then the chef grabbed one with her bare hands (!), doused it in a thin brick-red sauce, sprinkled on a bit of cheese and passed it to the pick-up station.
Read the rest on their site. It’s funny. Kudos, Ethicurean, for keeping it funny and conscientious. Turns out the short anecdote was sort of inspired by last year’s This American Life Poultry Slam, in which Jonathan Gold eats a live shrimp.
