After watching some of the other patrons shoveling food into their maws with relish, he carefully arranged his fingers around the tool, then cut and scooped a bite of the flaky red pastry.
His eyes widened as the strong, tart taste mingles with sweet red fruit on his tongue. The sour taste seemed to be coming from little morsels of vegetables, shaped like a familiar green plant from his homeland…celery. The bits reminded him of red celery.
Whatever it was, it was good.
