[Sca-cooks] Why *X* and not *Y*?

I ended up going to a *marvelous* Indian restaurant in Dublin (Ireland) when 
I was there in 2002.  More or less by chance (the restaurant, not the 
visit).  I was exhausted and in an unfamiliar city in an unfamiliar country 
(and a capital city at that), and really didn't feel confident wandering too 
far afield in search of a restaurant....and this place was next door to my 
hotel.  Some of the best food I've ever had in my life! (I went back.  I 
still miss it.....*happy sigh*)
My weird food quirks are pretty much just my personal weirdnesses.  I grew 
up with parents who were, in some ways, actually more adventurous than I 
(they loved things like pickled herring and raw oysters, neither of which I 
have any desire to try.  Ever.).  My life experiences have brought me more 
culinary diversity than what they experienced, but I know I would have 
enjoyed sharing new tastes with both of them.  Sushi and lebanese food (ma! 
I ate raw meat!) and various mediterranean cuisines and Thai food and all 
the wealth of foods and flavors I've found in the SCA....
