The food I chose to try for my sensory evaluation is a napol. It's sometimes referred to as the prickly pear cactus. I chose it because my favourite cuisine is Mexican, specifically Yucatean food. I've been to the Yucatan many times and I've always passed up any dish that's made with napol, I suppose I didn't find it appetizing in any regard, probably because of what it looks like in it's raw state.
I walked up to Kensington Market to an awesome Latin American shop called Perola. I frequent this place quite a lot as they sell a ton of Mexican products that are hard to find in Toronto.
