Eat Local Foods TTT #21

Cactus Fries


It’s a rare occasion that you’ll find me in a chain restaurant when I’m away from home.  Why miss the opportunity to enjoy a meal made with local ingredients and prepared using local techniques?

It helps that I’m not a picky eater.

Cactus fries, anyone?  You never know until you try it.

You’re probably wondering what cactus fries taste like.  They remind me of fried, firm, tangy cucumbers.  I’m sure that description doesn’t sound appealing at all.  But, I would definitely try them again!
