Pickled Watermelon Rind

I’m not such a frequent patron of bars. This is mainly because I’d rather be eating food! However, The New York Times’ Frugal Traveller recently did a feature on bar snacks which inspired me to venture out, reassured that I would get my nightly fix of RGF despite the lack of a formal dining setting. The pickled watermelon rind on the menu at Madam Geneva immediately stood out- who ever eats rind? For a refreshing treat, don’t be afraid to order something out of the ordinary, but do be forewarned that a high tolerance for cilantro is a prerequisite.

  1. Wow – pickled rind is one way to make the most out of the fruit!

  2. that looks *weird*! what did it taste like? could you still taste watermelon?

      there was actually a lot watermelon flesh in the dish. the rind tasted like a pickled radish. I guess I need to do a better job of writing reviews of all the food rather than just posting pics!
