I've finally discovered a food here that I don't like. That's saying a lot. I mean, for instance, I ate "lingua" - beef tongue - after suffering a week of stomach alements, and actually enjoyed it. There's not much here that isn't good. But boiled green bananas just don't do it for me. I'm not sure how to describe them. They're not sweet at all. They're just starchy and unflavorful. It's kind of like eating a raw, slightly mushy potato, maybe. They're served as a side dish, a filler for more flavorful offerings, like the fantastic fried talapia I had them with. But unlike other fillers, such as rice and beans, they just don't do it for me. I thought it was worth mentioning so you don't think I'm just raving about everything I eat here.
