I’ve been slacking on 21. Eat a new food every month, so I’m ramping up and eating six new things by the end of the year.
I reached out to friends for suggestions and boy did you all come through. I have so many leads.
One of my most well traveled, experimental friends, who is super on top of the DC restaurant scene sent me one of the most amazing/disgusting lists of weird food, which included lamb brains. Not sure if I’m brave enough for that.
Also on her list and more tolerable: grasshopper tacos at Oyamel.
I work near this restaurant, so this was a no-brainer.
I ordered a rosé because I suspected this dish would need a sweet wine to offset its strong flavor. And I was correct.
How gross does this look with the flash? You can see all of the legs. Ugh.
