I LOVE FOOD. I LOVE TO EAT
Stepping outside my comfort zone is something that I have never been to keen on, especially when it comes to my food. I take my taste buds very seriously and not to be dramatic but “I don’t like food I love food and if I don’t love it I don’t swallow.” This quote from the Disney movie Ratatouille is very pertinent to my life. Growing up I ate a total of about 10 things and even into my adult life I haven’t strayed too far away from what I’m used to and know I like
- chicken (cold, strips, nuggets)
- some fruit
As I grow up, I realize that there is a huge world around me and if I want to travel I’m probably going to have to eat different things. This is terrifying to me. I’m making a promise to myself to start going out and ordering things as they come. My goal is to order things without altering them more than I do alter.
The Dog Haus
Last night I had dinner at The Dog Haus for the first time. This was the perfect place to ease my way into trying new things, a hot dog I had no control over. A fancy hotdog if you will. (I normally eat them with ketchup only) The menu was very user friendly with options for a regular dog, a sausage dog, or a burger. There are house made options with fixins you might already want like the Another Night in Bangkok I tried but did not photograph. The protein is spicy Thai currywurst and oh my god it’s hot. I’m proud of myself for trying it but I can’t understand why anyone would every want their mouth to feel like that. I barley bit the sausage and am pretty sure I got no toppings, but it felt like my mouth was bleeding. I’m not at all being dramatic about the severity of the pain my mouth was in. I need baby steps.
My dog was a wait for it….. create your own. The best thing I could ever read on a menu is “create your own” because then I know for a fact I’m going to like it. Because I do want to start stepping my food game up I decided I would decorate my dog with things I normally wouldn’t. I started with a bacon wrap because double meat every day of my life, and added cheddar cheese, caramelized onions & crispy onions, and garlic aioli. Heck yea I’m proud of myself for getting a weird sauce I had never heard of. It was so good 10/10 will come back.
