ARROZ DE PATO
Out of all the items I ordered, this was the one I was most excited for. Looking at this picture, I (first) see how much I have improved at taking pictures of food in the past six months – this one is a weird in-between of a close-up/a full shot. I wouldn't take something like this these days.
The second thing I see are those yellow dots of orange, which absolutely confounded me. The menu said "orange" but while they tasted distinctly of orange, they didn't have the sharp acidity that comes with eating one. It was as if they had found a way to take the flavor out of the peel to create a less aggressive sweetness and I couldn't stop wondering how they did it.
