Eating out

I´ve been eating less since I arrived. There´s not a lot of opportunity for snacking. I was just looking for a restaurant for lunch today. I sat down at one that was more Cuban than some I´ve tried but after looking at the menu I just couldn´t bring myself to commit to a meal.

The English translation of something was Tape of Pork. Chicken was cooked with pineapples, or cooked period. I asked for an explanation of another dish and the waitress said it was chicken stuffed with shrimp but they were out of shrimp.

I ended up at a vegeterian restaurant that also serves ‘y mas’ which means, ‘and more’ or, in other words, meat. I guess they found there weren´t enough vegetarians around. So I ordered a pork and rice dish. The pork was really tough, and there seems to be no such thing as a steak knife. But I was also given this delicious little green salad with mango in it. A lovely surprise!
