  1. I love trying new foods too! 🙂 Recently I tried octopus for the first time at Bass Pro Shop… oh and alligator too! The alligator tasted a lot like chicken …

  2. Being a vegetarian certainly limits the number of dishes you can try outside your comfort zone. I am an Indian living in the UAE so that restricts my shopping options for exotic food. Other than South Asian cuisines, I have not tried anything much.

      1. Not at all.. UAE is in the Middle East, right near Saudi Arabia. So meat eaters are the majority. I have moved in for work so gotta cook my own meals everyday just to stick to this.
        BTW I am from India, where there are a lot of vegetarians and therefore lots of vegetarian recipes and restuarants to choose from.

  3. Living in Europe, I’ve certainly come to notice how overbearingly sweet American foods and drinks are every time I go back. We’ve really become addicts on a not very good thing, which has led us to, instead of scaling back the sweetness, simply replace it with other not good things!

  4. This is such an interesting post. Overseas we have the impression, largely from films and TV, that all Americans eat fried food and take out for every meal. Knowing that there are great ethnic stores there and that people like yourself are consciously using them is very interesting. I haven’t tried anything new for a while, but am on a bit of a Korean kimchi love at the moment. Will ty to seek out something else new this week!

    1. Many Americans do eat fried food and take out quite often because it is cheap and easy but many people also cook too. I make almost every meal at home and most of my friends do too. Eating at home is always the cheapest option and healthier because if you eat out most food is fried or very fatty unless you go to a nice, expensive, restaurant. I have had kimchi before, it is pretty good! Thank you for reading and sharing! Let me know what you try!

  5. I love pot stickers, too. I remember eating so many of them during my first trip to China (in Beijing) waaaaaay back in 1989. I was a senior in high school at the time. When I came home my mother was curious about the food so we made them homemade. They were just as good.

    I like going to foreign food markets, too. We have a Polish market and an Asian just 20 mins away. We tend to go to the Polish market because my hubby is Czech and some of the foods are similar or familiar to him. I’d cook more Chinese food, but my husband doesn’t like when I make it. I don’t know why. I think I do a pretty good job.

    1. I have never been to China, I bet that was a great experience! I have also not been to a Polish market, we don’t have one here. That is too bad, Chinese food is the best! Thank you so much for reading and sharing!

  6. I was delighted to see you mention H-Mart on your post! I live near an Hmart and shop there all the time. They have the freshest and most varied range of fruits and vegetables and, because I love and cook Asian cuisine (and foods from around the world frankly), I shop there all the time. I have an Hmart membership rewards card and routinely get $10 back for food because I shop there so much. Haha. 🙂
    You should try the Kabocha next time, it is delicious and better than any squash/pumpkin out there. The Bok Choy range is fabulous and I can’t say enough about the Kimchi selections. It is definitely important to try new things because they open our minds and hearts to other cultures and add a richness to our lives. 🙂
