According to ‘Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs’, food and water is one of our most important, basic needs to survive. But who says it has to be boring?
The Kyratis know how to make much out of the limited supply. Why not try out a few of the local specialities?
Open your senses for both taste and smell. The Kyrati cuisine is a treat.
The selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage is great in this place. A bottle of booze is a lot easier to find than bottled water, but waking up with a dry mouth makes drinking from a nearby river a lot more palatable.
In lack of fresh, clean water, a good advice is to stay with beer as far as possible. You’ll find plenty.
The tea ‘Kyra Tea’ is amazing. It’s all over the place. Finding water to dip it in is not so all-over-the-place.
Forget the stress of huge, labyrinthine markets. Like when borrowing vehicles, the friendly people of Kyrat do not mind you taking their food. They just act like nothing happened if you
steal take their sustenance.
“Take whatever you need, wherever you find it, whenever.”
– Kyrati hospitality norm
Dried food and preservatives are traditionally seen as bland and tasteless.
Here, it is an experience. A delight!
Disclaimer: It may or may not have been due to the scarcity of food. I.E. walking 2 days without so much as a popcorn.
Hot tip: Join the Royal Army, and you will be awarded the best a totalitarian country can give, and loyal service get.
Dining like a king
If you are ever so lucky, to be invited by the king, to a royal meal.
DO. NOT. REFUSE. Or you will be shot.
My trip there didn’t end that well, but that’s another story.
Being Saying you’re a journalist has it’s perks.
After a good meal, enjoy a ‘Kyrati Royals’ cigarette.
If you’re not the “join-any-group-if-they-offer-free-food”-type, you can still enjoy a raw beef by hunting it down yourself.
Coincidentally, in the next article, we’ll look at Kyrat’s animal life.
