Emmerson enjoying her "big" gulp. Any true blooded US person would scoff at this puny imitation but its the large size (thank goodness). I can not say American any more when I mean the US because I am around lots of Americans who are not USians and it doth offend....
So I retrieved a 50 cent hotdog for Emmerson from the steamer box and then scanned the options for something I could get. There were two large crock pots of hardboiled eggs so I made my way to them for a closer look. I was curious as to why two ... bit of an explanatory tangent necessary here. One of the infamous foods of the Filipins is balut - a very unique form of hardboiled egg (fire up the google machine). It is very common street fare but I have yet to try one or even see one. So I was wondering if one of the pots was balut and the other regular. I could have asked but thought it would be more interesting just to select one and see what happened. It turned out to be a regular old hardboiled egg, which is good as I was not in the mood for my first go at balut. Next time, when feeling a bit more balut worthy, I will draw from the other egg pot.
Food selected and paid for, we saddled up to a window seat to enjoy our "comfort food". But at least their was a bit of adventure - when I asked for ketchup they gave me not only ketchup but a mysterious green packet of "Manhattan Sauce" .... exciting indeed! It turned out to be whatever you call that mayo and mustard concoction. We did not partake.
The exciting Manhattan Sauce!
