Edible Flower

No guys this is not a flower arrangement but a Khmer salad made up of fresh(!) string beans (heck I don't know how the Khmers can digest those), cucumber and edible flowers. Lemon on the side. Isn't it beautiful? I tried the flower and it tasted like iceberg lettuce with a hint of that flowery smell. The raw string beans is another thing. Yelch!

kawadjan - im vegetarian but i still have some taste preference when it comes to my vegetables and how they're served. i've tried it and it's an acquired taste.

blagadag - hahaha! not everyone can be a diva like madonna no? di pang diva ang taste bud mo, sori. hehehe!
