A Spoonful of Sofrito: Puerto Rican Food +Identity Talk in

A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

Fung Bros Food: Puerto Rican Food +Identity Talk in

Sofrito Lovers,

The Fung Bros are two hilarious foodie, fashionista, music lovers that travel the U.S. experiencing other cultures' music, food, and fashion. I've never heard them refer to themselves as foodies, but their commitment to international cuisines is very foodie of them.

The video posted below, from FungBrosVideo, chronicles their first time tasting Puerto Rican food in New York City. I love that they were taken to Casa Adela, an AMAZING/INCREDIBLE/INDOMITABLE Loisaida institution, where Puerto Rican cuisine has been masterfully and passionately prepared by the Ferguson/Rivera family since 1976.

As you all know, I am a huge fan of tasting videos, but this one took it to the next level because of the identity talk. I've always said that food is one of the most powerful exemplifications of culture and their talk about identity was brilliant.

I won't give away any more. Check it out for yourself! If you still haven't tried Puerto Rican food, then get yourself to Casa Adela this weekend! Watch, laugh, and go taste for yourself! ¡Buen Provecho!
