        I had that at a Moroccan restaurant in SF and it was so good--with olive oil drizzled over it and maybe basil or another herb. I'm trying to remember what the restaurant was...

        A great amuse bouche is a cube of watermelon with balsamic vinegar in a tiny well on top of the watermelon. Never tried it on larger cubes, but have been tempted.

                      It's a hot sauce that looks sorta like ketchup. Comes in a big bottle at asian supermarkets.

              2. I grew up in Brazil eating green mangoes with salt. It is very good! We used to do the same with starfruit.
