Another throwback to yesteryears…
“Where do you want to go have lunch?”, I asked Larry
“I do not care”
“Pick a cuisine – Chinese, Mexican, Indian…”
“Let’s do Mexican”.
A few swift Google map searches later, I asked – “Mi Cocina works?”
So there we were – at the Mi Cocina in the Galleria mall next to the ice rink.
As we sat down at the table, I mentioned to Larry – “You know there used to be a Mi Cocina further up north from here. It burnt down after some time. But before that Sharmila and I used to go there for their mojitos”.
“Why? Did they make great mojitos?”
“Well, they put a peeled sugarcane stick as a garnish. Never ever have I seen that before or after. I loved that sugarcane stick. It reminded me of India – where we used to chew sugarcane sticks at home”
A few minutes later, when Bobby came to take our order, I told him the story again and asked “Do you still put sugarcane sticks in your mojitos?”
He cryptically replied – “I do not know. Let’s find out!”
And we found out!!
I sure got my sugarcane stick in my mojito!!!
