Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is such a foodie that he keeps a blog on mlb.com called Dining with ‘Dre. It’s got all sorts of restaurants reviews with fun insights like:
This isn’t your typical pizzeria…the apps are to die for and don’t disappoint. But first up was the fried squash blossom stuffed with ricotta…one word – UNBELIEVABLE! [...] Next up was Mussel al forno with Calabrian sauce and if you’re a mussel lover like me, then come for these.
Certainly nothing wrong with that. Who doesn’t love a big mussel with Calabrian sauce, am I right fellas? No, what troubles me is this quote from the Wall Street Journal: (via Ben Maller):
Mr. Ethier knows where to find the best throat-meat tacos in Los Angeles, the juiciest Salvadoran papusas and the city’s tastiest Romanian chicken stew.
I understand that I’m not a gourmet, but I’m willing to bet a “throat-meat taco” isn’t some kind of culinary delicacy. I think I know a disgusting Mexican sex act from Urban Dictionary when I see one.
By the way… where CAN I find the best throat-meat taco in Los Angeles?
