Options Aloha Fridays: Playlist from September 11, 2020 Options

Aloha" is a word found in all Polynesian languages meaning a spirit of loving togetherness. And that is what you will get every Friday morning as a rotating crew of Sheena's Jungle Room DJs (and special guests) spin three hours of relaxing exotica in all its forms, from the primitive to the Space Age. Can we get you something from the bar?

So, the missus and I had this friendly disagreement last night: which is better - keep the house closed up and relatively free of smoke and roast, or have the house open and have it cooler, yet feel like we're in a meat smoker.

Tripas de leche is the most adventurous thing I've eaten that I can remember.
Avatar 1:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah, in Mondo Pazzo where they get the guy in the cantina to eat a taco full of live ticks was pretty thrilling as well.
Avatar 1:34pm Sonderangebot:

The thing with tripas is I am a sure it's good, but, you want to feel they have been cleaned properly before, right? hehe

solo, I had stinky tofu too, in Taiwan, it's really not that bad!
Avatar 1:41pm solo mon:

We ate percebes at a tapas restaurant once, it didn’t taste bad necessarily but they looked like severed alien penises to me. Not that I would know. Just guessing.

Crickets are a regular part of my diet, I've never had that stinky tofu
Avatar 1:41pm chresti:

Once I got older I realized how disgusting tripas was. My dad would bbq it and entertain us poking it with a fork to make milk squirt out.

what about fermented shark in iceland? that's supposed to be one of the most difficult flavors for foreigners
Avatar 1:45pm solo mon:

I’ve never heard of that ARB

Thanks Rich, it's the anniversary of the US backed military coup dictatorship in Chile, yea!
Avatar 1:45pm Franco Twinkie:

I do believe context has a lot do with what you will swallow. Years ago Chresti got me a job at the mannaquin factory she worked at in East L.A. One day I got a tripe burrito from the lunch truck - no big deal, I've eaten menudo my entire life, but having tripe out of context... I really tried, but just couldn't. I flung it into the trash and then thought about it for a very long time. I think about food constantly, It makes Chresti kind of nuts.

I was grossed out by the stinky tofu and my host said, you know what’s gross? Putting cheese on everything. Lol. So I tried it.

Fermented shark in is a national dish of Iceland consisting of a Greenland shark or other sleeper shark which has been cured with a particular fermentation process and hung to dry for four to five months. It has a strong ammonia-rich smell and fishy taste

Cheese is weird. But delicious.

I love cheese a lot
Avatar 1:48pm Sonderangebot:

Ha! When I was a kid, my grandpa loved the stinkiest cheese imported from France, one of them was called tête de moine (monk's head) that you had to kind of swivel-rake to eat

There was this really great Indian vegetarian restaurant nearby that had a great Friday night special, all you can eat with live music. I went with a bunch of people and we all ate the same damn thing. In the morning it all came out of my nose. I couldn't even smell Indian food for years. I got over it. That's what I'm gonna eat right now!
