    Cuban Restaurant Analysis

    ordered the masitas de puerco, which translates into cake of pig. The menu’s description of the dish was Tender, cubed pork marinated with Cuban spices and mojo sauce and lightly pan fried to perfection. It was also served with congris, which is Cuban rice and beans, tostones, which are fried plantains, and a salad. I was skeptical at first but I wanted to try something new. I started out slowly taking small bites of things I have had before, then finally I tried the pork and it was absolutely delicious. The dish was very interesting when it came out.

The pork was tender and delectable. The taste was not bad. In fact, it was really good. Just like in NPR’s Sweet Sour Salty Bitter … and Umami, Krulwich says, “Nothing is specifically sweet, nothing is particularly sour, nothing is determinately bitter or especially salty but you knew it tasted good”. The congris and tostones were very interesting. I have had plantains before but not like this, these plantains were mashed down and fried. Plantains are not like bananas, plantains are bitterer and don’t have much flavor. Over all I was doubtful in the beginning but once I finally tried the food I realized that is was very good and that I had nothing to be worried about. After my visit to Papi’s and doing some research I have seen the similarities between Cuban food…

    In Obi; or, The History of Three-Fingered Jack by William Earle the plantain is not simply a source of nourishment for the slaves on the island. It is a metaphorical cage used by slave owners to trap slaves in a place where there are no longer seen as human but rather as beast. Plantains are an indigenous, year round source of food and therefore a crucial part of the slaves’ diets. However, the plantain represents more than simply nourishment. In Obi, it is used to convey the bond that the…

    An important factor that I learned from both Hurst and 21st century art is that it doesn’t matter too much about what the artist is wanting to portray in their art. They are more focused on how their admirers will interpret their artwork. In regards to Hurts my interpretation of “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living” is that he wanted to show that we can physically maintain or understand death in daily life. For instance Hurst stored this shark in formaldehyde…
