    When I lived in California for a while, I was able to sample all the great foods..and had access to them..boy am I sorry that I did not learn more from the locals.
    At least I was and still game to try different foods..A few times I was sorry, but most of the time I am in bliss.
    I will have to look for Linguica and try it on my husband.
