Mutton bone marrow stew
‘Of course.’ I said.
‘Ok, we order a little bit for tasting. But, do you know how to eat?’ KH.
‘Don’t worry, it shouldn’t be too difficult.’
I have mentioned many times in front of KH that I am keen to try the mutton bone marrow stew after I have read an article by a famous foodie (蔡澜). So we were so excited when we noticed that the Indian food stall have provided this dish.
I was completely clueless when the red mutton bones, which stewed in a spicy sweet chilli, tomato, a little cabbage and mutton stock, arrived with a useless fork in front of me. Since the fork was useless, I found myself clumsily in handling this sticky and slippery bone by my hands. I picked up the bone, sucked it and tapped it repeatedly, tuk! tuk! tuk! ... tuk!tuk!tuk! Finally the buttery marrow slid out.
Tuk! tuk! tuk! after fighting hard with my bone marrow, I went home with red-stained fingers, a ruined shirt and a feeling of happy.
