QuizWol--in Mexico we don't use tortilla shells, at least not traditionally. That's an American invention--as is the fact that they use non-nixtamalizado flour. "Crunchy" tacos are just tacos that have been fried after being rolled.
Nixtamalizar is a process in which corn is soaked and cooked in an alkaline solution, usually limewater (but sometimes wood ash lye), washed, and then hulled. This process is known to remove up to 97–100% of aflatoxins from mycotoxin-contaminated corn. The term can also refer to the removal via an alkali process of the pericarp from other grains such as sorghum.
As bright as bright can be.
We all enjoy our Vegemite
For breakfast, lunch, and tea.
Our mummies say we're growing stronger
Every single week,
Because we love our Vegemite
We all adore our Vegemite
It puts a rose in every cheek
I looked it up and the bil indeed stands for butt (area where the meat comes from) but tong has nothing to do with a real tongue and just refers to it being a strip of meat.
btw the word first reminded me of bintang, so i tried indonesia in the quiz :D
The thing that we (sometimes) call gyro originally comes from the Ottoman Empire, and then made its way around the world, in some places via Greece and in others not.
However "gyro" as the *name* for the thing is actually an American development, yes (even though the word is of Greek origin). The Greeks continued to call them "ντονέρ" (a cognate with the Turkish "döner") until tensions between Greece and Turkey reached a height in the 1970s, at which point the Greek word "ντονέρ" fell out of favour as being "too Turkish" and the word "γύρος" was backported from the USA into Greece as being a more properly "Greek" term.
So you could make a plausible claim that the gyro is either American or Turkish (Ottoman). But of those three options, Greek is probably the least correct.
Clam chowder ?
Why does it exist ? Is it edible ? If yes, is it good ? And again, WHYYY ?
(sorry, I know it's probably okay, but idk, just hearing/seeing the name makes my skin crawl for some reason.
So I'm really curious.)
2: Never heard of PUPUSA. I doubt that anybody who is not from El Salvador (or perhaps the southern parts of the US) has either.
3: VEGEMITE isnt food. It's Australia's way of disposing of toxic waste
Indeed I just happen to have most recently had one about 6 days ago - purely coincidentally.
I've never been to El Salvador nor is my ancestry in any way related to that part of the world (so I've never had any reason to e.g.: seek them out, particularly). But they've definitely been common enough in my experience...
That's a bit like adding the favourite food of Togo
But as a western european it might be easier than for others
In any case, it's a good quiz.
