I thought it was a little strange at first, but it seems I wasn't the only one.
We're all familiar with California Maki or California Rolls. They're little rice and seaweed rolls stuffed with crab sticks (which I am told are actually swordfish), mango, and mayonnaise.
But see, when I went to Canada, this is what I get:
So apparently, since there are very little mangoes there, they substituted it with avocado. Or so I thought... I'm told the original California Rolls are actually made with avocado and not mangoes. Makes sense, since mangoes' tastes vary from sour to sweet, while avocados are a little more consistent with taste.
But maybe that's just me.
Now I'm craving for California Rolls. Maybe I should bug Tiff for another lunch date...
