Tropical Pepper Co.’s Tico Papaya Curry Pepper Sauce
This review has been preying on my mind for a couple of weeks now. I’m not losing sleep over it (don’t be ridiculous), but I have been thinking about it.
I am brand new at this describing-the-food-and-eating-experience gig. And while I have no dreams of being a professional critic or allusions of being as good a critic or writer as Gael Greene, Frank Bruni or Anthony Bourdain, I am enjoying myself and want to do my best at describing my experiences.
That is why this review has taken so long.
When I sample this sauce I get a mental image and description that I just can’t shake. Unfortunately, it sounds completely nutso to me. So I can’t decide if this will sound brilliantly evocative or like the sad attempts of a critic wanna-be.
What finally made up my mind to go with it is — I really don’t care. This is exactly what comes to my mind when I eat Tropical Pepper Co.’s Tico Papaya Curry Pepper Sauce and I should just say it.
Not the beautiful, brilliant smell of fresh curry you get when the waiter sets a steaming bowl down in front of you. Or even the mingled smells up around the buffet tables.
No, this is the smell of the foyer. Or the hallway to the bathrooms. The old, stale curry-has-been-cooked-here-for-20-years-and-the-odor-has-permiated-the-carpet-the-walls-the-ceiling-everything! smell.
That’s what Tropical Pepper Co.’s Tico Papaya Curry Pepper Sauce tastes like.
I guess techinically I am describing the smell and not the taste. Doesn’t matter. I hate it. I tried it on rice. I tossed the rice and the bottle after 2 bites.
