|Crispy pulses in a sandwich|
|Tiny finger food|
It can’t be helped, me sweeping everything from the snacks to the spice section in Mustafa. It also didn’t help that it was a Thursday evening when the crowd was thin and the inviting aisles were spilling every sort of snacks imaginable in full view before my eyes. Some, I didn’t even know they exist!
One of the exotic snack that is possibly found only in Mustafa is this assortment of pulses. It looks good in theory until I tried to eat the tiny bits of puffed beans with the hand. This is no finger food! Eating them by the spoonful seems way wrong either, so I did the next best thing.
The bean snack found its way in between 2 slices of smoked cheese and 4 pieces of shaved ham. The 2 slices of 12 grain wholemeal bread sealed the deal and made it look a lot healthier than it was.
I felt I was eating the whole world – it’s an amalgam of east, west and something in between. If only the world is like this – coming together for a better good …
OK, you get my drift. But seriously, ham cheese sandwich with a tangy, spicy, crunchy filling is really something. This 200g pack at $1.70 is going to make lots of sandwiches so I have better start thinking beyond ham and cheese.
Gotta go. Lots of thinking to do.
