i love lychees
lychees - i can't get enough of them! and the good news for me is that this tropical fruit is easily available in london all year round, i think. the peak season is not till june/july but they seem to be in the market already. i don't think i ever saw lychees in any of the grocery stores in new york, not even wholefoods. i had to get canned lychees from kalustyans to satisfy my cravings.
i like being pure when it comes to lychees. sometimes i'll indulge in a lychee martini at a restaurant like nobu or lychee with vanilla icecream after a indian chinese meal but most of the time i totally love peeling the rough skin and eating the sweet flesh with my hands. so delcious!
