Family Food Adventure-Afterschool Snack Around the World
A few weeks ago, I bought a coupon book for Kids and Cultures, Afterschool Snack Around the World.
It's a really cool concept. The coupon book contains 10 coupons for afterschool "snacks," at 10 different ethnic restaurants in our area.
Today was a rainy day and my daughter had a half day at school, so I decided that it would be a great day to have a "Food Adventure," by visiting some of the restaurants in the coupon book.
First I created a passport booklet for each child so that my children could record some information about the restaurant, country and food that they ate.
For today's adventure, we visited 2 restuarants: Sukothai (Thai Food), and Addisu Ethiopian Restaurant.
Sadly, I realized, after arriving at the first restaurant, that my camera battery was dead. However, if you click on the links for the restaurants you can see videos which show the foods we tried.
At Sukothai, we had fresh and fried spring rolls. The kids liked them both. They said that the fried ones basically tasted like egg rolls. The fresh one had glass noodles in it, which they were excited about. They didn't like the peanut dipping sauce that came with the rolls though.
At Addisu, we were served three different lentil dishes on a flat spongy bread made from Teff flour. We were not given any utensils, nor did I see any in the restaurant. Therefore, we grabbed some bread and started scooping up the lentils (which definitely added an element of fun to the whole experience!)
Both restaurants received 5 stars in my kids' passport booklets. We can't wait to visit the other restaurants and try more new foods!
Now it's your turn!
