As a native Texan, I love Irish people. They remind me of Texans. They're stubborn and fiercely independent, like we are. The good people at Facts. decided to give Texan food a try, so they presented some Irish folks with six different dishes and let them taste test each one. The results were, frankly, adorable.
We've gotta hand it to these guys because they did pretty well with their Texan food research. A couple of their dishes are on point, even if the execution isn't really exact.
The menu left a little something to be desired, though. For example, they chose mushroom soup, which... isn't a classic food here in the Lone Star State, as far as this native Texan knows. It really wasn't a hit, but we can't claim responsibility for that.
Rounding out the meal was a slice of pecan pie. The pecan tree is the state tree of Texas for good reason. It's hard to mess up pecan pie, as it's mostly just pecans, Karo syrup and brown sugar. Now I wonder what Texans would think of Irish food?
