Being on tour is really exciting when you think about all the places that you get to visit and different audiences you get to perform for. And while you are on tour you have to keep your energy up, so you have to keep regular eating habits as if you were at home. This is where the extra fun comes in when you get to explode new foods that you aren’t accustomed to. Now this can be a little daunting when you consider where you are, and you can’t get the old standby, “burger and fries.” You have to be a bit adventurous at times but it doesn’t appear to be a problem for me, for my palate has welcome a lot of different things lately, that I have become a “Foodie!”
Recently I had a wonderful opportunity to dine at a Jamaican restaurant in Old San Juan Puerto Rico and ordered one of my favorite Jamaican dishes, Jerk chicken! I stopped in at Blessed Roots Café and immediately the spirit of Jamaica hit me. Dance hall reggae music was blasting from the speakers, and two big portraits of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh hung on the walls. And within minutes I had a plate of Jerk chicken with beans and rice at me disposal. And Boy did I “Dispose it!” And on the side, I ordered a plate of Ox tails with a sauce fit for a King. The sauce for the chicken I got on the side, not knowing if it was a 5 alarm spicy sauce or not. To my delight, it was just right spicy as I poured it over each piece of chicken. I washed it all down with water, topped off with a couple of local beers and my dining experience was complete. Yes, touring can be wonderful especially when you can sample different food group delights. Bon Appetite!
