It’s launch, I mean lunch time in Portrush in Northern Ireland. I didn’t know this but Ireland has rocket. Just ask our server, Matt, from the Coast Cafe. Here the menu offers something for everyone: sandwiches, burgers, pizza, soups, salads. I felt like a salad. Here’s one, “spicy rocket salad” pointing to the menu. “I wonder what rocket is?” So we asked Matt what rocket is. “It’s arugula.” he said, with a shrug, as if we were spaced out or something. “Oh rocket, I get it!” The tender little leaves of arugula are shaped like a rocket. Spicy? Bite down on the rocket and it has a peppery flavor.
Thanks Matt. You da “rocket” man.
