A note about serious food allergies

There's something deeply satisfying about meat on a stick; there's a return to a more primal and simple time, a time where, well, we ate more things on sticks. These beauties, formed of ground pork and garlic and ginger flavors, have the heat of Sriracha plus the crunch of slaw and lettuce. It's a combination of textures and flavors that's like fire and rain… elemental.
