Funny fruit with an eye-ish texture

Or so I would imagine anyway. I have actually never eaten an eye before. Not even from a whole fish [and, if I am to partake of a whole fish, I have to cover its face first. I have real problems eating any animal product that: (1) I have seen attached to the animal in its whole form; (2) I saw alive beforehand; or (3) is offal. True story].

yummy lychees

So to lychees. They’re delicious and in season now. I enjoy them, with their slippery mouthfeel and tropical freshness. Nutrition Data also reports that this fruit is high in vitamin C and a good source of copper, so I am guessing you should limit your lychee intake if you have Wilson’s disease.

I ate lychees recently at breakfast [Xander is a fan also], and with roast duck at Nahm Thai on Bulwer Street. Now that’s an innovative Thai restaurant [review to follow soon].

This is a very lazy post, and for that I apologise. I have been so ridiculously busy lately. So many posts conceived; so many meals eaten; so many wines uncorked.

More substance will follow.
