This past week we went to my favorite resturant here in St.Catharines, a Vietnamese place that specializes in Pho, with our district. A bunch of the Elders were really wary about the food, because none of them had really had much authentic Asian food before. I recommended my favorite dish to them, and they were all about to get it until they read the ingredients. It's a rice noodle soup (not scary) with beef (still doing good) and...tripe. At that point they all got scared and just about every one of them ordered some form of fried rice. I did however, convince one elder to try my recommendation. And he loved it. And then proceeded to work to help me convince the other elders (the sisters all already agreed with me that tripe is actually delicious) how good it was. Moral of the story, tripe is delicious and we should all try to have an open mind to food and other cultures because you never know when you'll be pleasantly surprised.
