Finding An Out of Place Lunch Morsel…
Are you one of those people that is grossed out when you find a piece of food in your lunch that doesn’t belong? Mind you, I’m not talking about non food items, like hair or a severed finger. I’m talking about the regular french fry that makes it into your order of sweet potato fries, or the random hunk of pork that made it into your vegetarian entree. An out of place morsel may be oft putting to some (like the vegetarian put in the above situation), but for this non discriminating eater, I see these interlopers as welcomed little nuggets of goodness! Take my lunch yesterday:
Beef Bulgogi with Lo Mein & Gyoza from the Kim’s Aunt Kitchen Cart (more on this meal in a future post). I’m guessing there are a few people who would be disturbed finding a big hunk of chicken in their beef dish, but not me. For me it’s like Christmas. I love variety, and finding that piece of chicken turned my three item combo, into a four item combo.
With all the steam tables, salad bars and by the lb. buffets in Midtown, I’m sure there are worse (or in some cases better!) findings than a piece of chicken in a beef dish.
