|mango fish taco, Koi Fusion|
When I woke up and read her e-mail, I laughed so hard. I LOVE MANGOS!!! And apparently, from what I've learned our overall consumption in Portland is somewhat below average, so now I'm definitely bumping up my enthusiasm for this sweet treat.
Pictured above is the delicious mango fish taco from the food cart Koi Fusion at the D-Street Noshery. that won the Mango Hometown Tour Taste Off in Portland.

Beyond getting a chance to taste great food from local entrepeneurs, I also was educated on the different varieties of mangoes, how to tell when they're ripe, how to stop them from ripening, and the most effective way to slice a mango. Geez, I can't believe I've been struggling for years cutting mangoes when someone thought up such an easier method.
If the struggle to cut a mango has been holding you back from purchasing one of these beauties, be sure to visit The Mango Board to watch their video.
