Been dining out in American restaurants for practically all my life; and there are always two condiments you can find on any table: mustard and ketchup (or catsup). That’s what I thought, until I started traveling to various states in the United States.

When I got to Texas, I noticed that, in addition to mustard and ketchup, many restaurants have pickled jalapeno slices in a jar on the table and you can always ask for salsa. Texans, have Tex-Mex fusion cuisine and they eat salsa with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My taste buds are not fussy; so now that we live in Texas, it was easy to make the adjustment and use jalapenos or salsa as my “extra flavor enhancer” or condiment.

Did a little research to discover what people around the world use as condiments. Ever try Monkey Gland Sauce? It’s popular in South Africa.

NOTE: This post doesn’t really provide cooking tips. It’s about what people like to use to dress up food that’s already been cooked. But! Since I have a post series at this site, I included it with the grouping for “Cooking Basics” because it is food-related. See list below.

  1. This is such a fun way to travel – eating your way across the world! Truly condiments and sauces make the food. Thanks for sharing these with us – and I am so relieved to realize that Monkey Gland sauce does not really include monkeys. :)
