Witty and charming, "Try This" is an adventurous and accessible guide to eating out in the twenty-first century, perfect for anyone who loves food but wants to break out of a restaurant rut. From banh mi to bocadillos, spotted dick to soup dumplings, meze to ma po tofu, Try This travels the culinary map as it demystifies unfamiliar foods in sparkling prose that will leave your stomach growling. From newbie foodies to experienced eaters, there's something in "Try This" for everyone to discover. In the Restaurant Girl's own words, "I'm writing this book for anyone who's ever looked at a menu and had a question. Anyone who's had a plate put in front of him and wondered what the hell was in it?" Convivial and encouraging, "Try This" reminds us that eating out is a delicious adventure: "Life is one long feast. Devour it."
