Where would we be without globalization?
Especially for food lovers like me?
I can’t imagine not living in a place and time where I have access to Vietnamese pho, French crepes, Cantonese dim sum, Mexican fish and carne asada tacos, Japanese unagi (roasted eel), Korean BBQ ribs, Argentine empanadas… and much, much more.
How lucky am I that I have enough discretionary income to eat at so many wonderful places and try all types of delicious foods (without traveling to distant lands). So no, my budget doesn’t accommodate weekly jaunts to Spago, but that’s okay. I can (and have) splurged for a swanky restaurant once in a while.
Besides, the $10/person dim sum place I visited this morning probably made me just as happy (and my wallet even happier).
