IEAPD II

Filed under: — site admin @ 9:25 PM UTC

Well, that was a bit of a flop. There was nothing wrong with the quantity or quality of the food at the Korean place I went to in downtown Glen Burnie, in fact the quantity was exceptional: there were eleven of the little side dishes instead of the standard six or seven. But only one had any visible meat in it. Where other Korean restaurants will often serve side-dishes of tiny whole anchovies with big eyes, or slices of some larger kind of fish, or chicken bits on top of vegetables, this one provided lots of different kinds of vegetables. Still, I ate four different meat dishes today from three different animals, with the dinner meats being a barbecued pork entrée (Jae Yook Gui) and a side of cold squid in hot pepper. And that’s not even counting the goat cheese.

For International Eat an Animal for PETA Day, I lunched on duck pâté (ingredients: duck meat, duck fat, duck stock, duck liver, plus herbs and spices), soppressata (that’s pork), and goat cheese, with a little bread. Does goat cheese count as an animal? For some of the more militant animal-lovers, I think it does. For dinner, I plan to go Korean, and see how many different phyla, classes, and orders of animals I can have in one meal.

It’s also my birthday, not to mention the Ides of March. How old am I? Let’s just say I’m finally playing with a full deck.
