Authentic Ethnic Food

Melissa looked forward to trying Galactico’s alien food restaurant.

After she and Ned sat at their table, she sensed something wrong.

“Ned,” said Melissa. “I haven’t seen a single alien yet.”

“I know. I stopped to glance in the kitchen. No alien cooks.”

“No alien furniture, either. Makes me wonder if it’s authentic alien food.”

“Here comes the waiter. Maybe he can explain.”

“Good afternoon!” said the waiter. “I’m Greg, and I’ll be your server.”

“Uh yeah, Greg,” said Melissa. “Is this authentic alien food here?”

“It certainly is. Our specials today are roast Malturian shank and braised Tapath’ka belly.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  3. Dear Eric,

    Now that you mention it I’ve had a craving for braised Tapath’ka belly like my grandma used to make. Galactico’s it is. Thanks for something different. 😀

    Shalom,

    Don’t go into an alien food restaurant if you’re–you know–an alien 🙂

    I’d be well up for some braised Tapath’ka belly.

    I dunno, “roast” and “braised” anything just doesn’t sound “authentic alien” to me..
