Cuisine that gives you a high

We say that gastronomy is one of the important aspects of any journey. To us anyway. As you might have read in our posts and journalogs, we make it a point to test out the local food scene wherever it is possible. While we are no connoisseurs, we do give our reviews of dining establishments. So we wonder if we would be too “high” to remember anything should we dine in some of the restaurants in LA if this article is really true.

So Amsterdam wake up! Los Angeles is catching up with you in legalizing “soft” drugs. And they are putting it into food too!

There has always been approved medicinal use for marijuana in the US. But what we refer to is how it has been sneakily upping the game with “weed” resturants! If you did not read the article, be assured that it is all rather fancy and pricey too. No back of the alley kind of thing. At least for now. More affordable “finger” food events are available for those who seek an introduction to such dining experiences. Intrigued?

While we are not proponents of loosening the stance against the misuse of drugs, we are also cognizant that abuse can happen in a host of other substances too. Just as consuming too much sugar can also be detrimental to one’s health, one cannot blame the substance alone. It cannot defend itself against your arguments! We should focus instead on ensuring people are educated about its use.

Like DUI, don’t drive after you’ve had a meal in such a restaurant. The author described how the “high” he felt. Being behind the wheels feeling this way would be risky for both driver and everyone else in the car and on the road too.

Come January 2018, will you flock to LA like how neighbouring Europeans go to the Netherlands for an opiod fix?

  1. Oi, I don’t know… I know what it’s done to me when I used to smoke it… Especially when drinking, too. I will have to think about this. Hahaha! Oh, smoking in Amsterdam was a “cool novelty”. Maybe better of smoking wasn’t a “norm” at done point, even if only for a year or less.

    1. LOL. We never had to smoke it in Amsterdam, it comes to you when you walk past the coffeeshops! Many years ago, we heard that some eateries had people flocking back regularly was because they used poppy seeds… hmmm…

  2. Just curious though: regarding this post’s main image – is that a nasi padang stall or something? The food looks yummy and that nasi padang I tried out at Lucky Plaza comes to mind haha

    For the article…as much as I want to, I would not even think of stepping in one. (If the Philippine president finds out about that, he’ll be blowing his top off.)
