Miracle Berry Party at La Strada
There's been a lot of talk lately about the miracle berry, an African whats-it that, when chewed, knocks out your ability to taste sour for a little bit. Chew on a lime, it tastes like key lime pie. Jenny Wang, the chief foodie and facilitator of the Houston Chowhounds food group put together a spectacular tasting party at La Strada recently. Great turn-out, about 100 people. We chewed on the berries and then tasted an assortment of stuff: balsamic vinegar, Tabasco sauce, salt and vinegar potato chips, Brussels sprouts, Guinness, etc.
Gentleladies, prepare to trick your taste buds!
"Drug deal" goin' down.
Could this make Brussels sprouts tasty?
