Robo-Belly

I’ll admit that this week’s film didn’t really speak to me -but only because I don’t speak Tamil. A shame, because Robot is  a smart and complex movie that uses a lot of technological double entendre. This Kollywood version of The Terminator stars Rajinikanth, the highest paid Asian actor after Jackie Chan.

He could hold his own in a fight against the Governator.

It also makes absolutely no sense. It didn’t help that we couldn’t activate the subtitles.

Food-wise, we keep outdoing ourselves. This week’s main was our interpretation of the Mexican torta. It’s a choose your own adventure sandwich. If you weren’t down with (a) pork belly topped with (b) onions caramelized in duck fat, then (c) marinated mushrooms and (d) goat feta made for a great veggie option. If you knew what was good for you, you looked at all the choices and picked (e) all of the above.

Eat your heart out, Julia Child.

Esquites (a Mexican charred corn salad) literally popped from the cast-iron pan onto the plate. Washed it down with morir soñando, and now we know why the drink literally translates into “to die dreaming.”

What would Jesus tip, indeed.

We’re all about great food and bad puns. Example A is Gulab Jamun, a dessert made from reduced milk curd that hovers in a decadent syrup of cardamon and saffron. Our nickname for them: flonuts.

Because they’re so good you’ll want to eat them off the flo’. Amirite?

 

Stay tuned. We’re even watching a movie in English next times. But hey, Sometimes,  yelling your own dubs for a dance-fight montage with your mouth still full is a great way to make friends.

As a parting note, Rajinikanth would definitely win a dance-off atop Manchu Pichu against Arnold.
