Don’t Touch Me Tomatoes

DSC06743I’m not a picky eater, but there are two things that I’ve never liked: milk and tomatoes. Oddly, I’m ok with milk in cereal, but drinking it straight puts me off. As for tomatoes, I was fine with them in sauces, etc., but not raw. Recently, though, I’ve become a fan of raw cherry tomatoes, particularly with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt. I’ve become such a fan that they’ve become part of my daily lunch.

Thus, my reaction was more positive as we were walking down Vinkenburgstraat today, when G noticed a new shop called Tazed Tomatoes, which seems to be devoted to tomatoes. They had staff standing outside, along with a selection of various small tomatoes, but I’m still hesitant with unknown tomatoes, so I didn’t try any. Still, it’s tempting and I will likely stop in the next time I’m over by Neude, though it looks like it may be a popup open only until 15 June.
