Before we get to the exotic stuff, just some background on how all of this came about.
I've been fortunate to meet some really interesting and passionate food people along my food journey.
While attending a restaurant tasting with food  adventurer, @KristieHang, we happened to sit next to @trippyfood and @cuethecritic.  A conversation began,  funny thing, we've been following each other on  social media and a true pleasure meeting both of them IRL.
Next thing I know, exotic meats are mentioned and weeks later @trippyfood sets up a tasting at Exotic Meat Market in Perris.
I love Extreme Cuisine, so I was thumbs-up for joining in.
Now you're caught up...
Our host, Anshu, of Exotic Meat Market.

No one mentioned Thanksgiv..., I mean, the "T" word.

A llama? Oh, that's right, this is the Exotic Meat Market Ranch.

The Last Night Market of the Season!
The KTown Night Market organizers presents the Halloween Food Fest
October 25 & 26, 2014

My post of the first KTown Night Market in April 2014 HERE
6th Street was closed to traffic in KTown.
 Over 70 vendors lined the street between Mariposa Ave and Berendo St.
 The Ultra-Popular Original Ramen Burger was in attendance. They're so popular, they even had a line before the event opened!

OK, so it was the Original Ramen Burger crew in their new red shirts...


See What Jay Eats... Just a few things I had
 I stopped by the Chilly Ribbons' ski chalet to try their latest flavor, Red Bean.
You can see the red bean pieces...
Now ready to go with red beans, mochi, and almonds.
It was sweet without being sweet and had a nice flavor. 
Now that the night market season is over, I guess I'll have to get out to their store in Westwood.
I tried the Sweet Mixed Grain Smoothie from Chilly Ribbons.
It's made from different grains, tasted like barley tea.  It then hit me, barley i…
