Jicama Slaw on Tacos, Good Memory

This past weekend I saw Anthony and Abby for Rich's birthday. That was nice. I mentioned that our experience at The Bad Bean Taqueria was shared with the world.

Abby reminded me that she enjoyed her meal, and wanted everyone to know. "The tacos came with jicama slaw," she said.

A little background on Jicama from Wikipedia:

The jícama (pronounced "hickama") is a legume native to tropical and subtropical Central America. It is cultivated for its edible taproot. The root's exterior is yellow and papery, while its inside is creamy white with a crisp texture that resembles that of a raw potato or pear. The flavor is sweet and starchy. It is usually eaten raw, sometimes with salt, lemon juice, and powdered chile.

Well, if you can just throw out that detail six months later, then the tacos must have been memorable.

World, now you know.
