While there are plenty of places to eat on campus, there are no dining places in the immediate vicinity of my office, so I have to leave. (What's kind of sad is that a place they took us to during orientation and I really liked, is on the opposite side of our pretty large property). So, that means I will explore for a while.
I didn't feel like the places I'm familiar with, and spied Jerk Pit and got a jerk pork salad. It was decent,but I've had much better jerk foods before. The weird thing, and I don't know if it's me: if the seasoning is off, maybe a bit too bitter, I notice I have this overwhelming urge to have chocolate after eating some jerk foods. Could that be a defense mechanism to coat the bitter?
For dinner, I have a standing date with a former coworker, and we went back to Cafe Roti. This time, I went for an old favorite, the Korma, but with beef. That sauce is so flavorful and delicate, I was very happy to have picked it again. It is one of Ed's local favorites, so I texted him and asked if he wanted me to bring some home-he got some lamb vindaloo.
It's going to take a while to find more places, but I've got Greek, German, Indian, Thai and more within a 10 minute drive. I suspect I'll be filling up my Urban Spoon account with many more reviews!
