Irie Gastrodiplomacy

Jamaican rice and peas, covered with stewed vegetables and curry gravy. Topped with fiery chili sauce that made my lips numb. With a side of fried corn bread festival. Washed down with ginger pineapple juice. Crown Heights can offer some irie gastrodiplomacy.

Although almost a gastrodiplo fail. I came in to the cafe asking for stewed peas. The lady said they were out. I asked what other veggie food she had. She laughed. Stewed peas are cooked in beef and pork. Haha, I laughed back and told her I was a kosher vegetarian. She gave a big laugh to my almost-order.
