the Nasty Bits by badass Tony Bourdain
from our local cool ass library because my
sweet lover thought of me when he and the
boy visited recently.
on fast food:
"Next time you find yourself slack-jawed and
hungry in front of a fast-food counter- and a
clown is anywhere nearby- just turn on your
heels and head for the lone-wolf, independant
operator down the street: a pie shop, a chippie,
a kebab joint, or in New York, "a dirty-water hot dog",
anywhere that the proprieter has a name...
In Mexico, one is likely to find happy swarms of
people slurping posole, a sort of soupy stew, or
menudo, a similarily delicious concoction, around
primitive carts right out in the street, electric power
provided by a chugging gas generator. A few pesos
and a few seconds and you're eating better than any
place run by evil clowns or steroid-overdosed action
movie front men."
