I hate coconut. I wish I didn't, but it really grosses me out. Taste, texture, served any style. Until now.
I had just ordered a fish sandwich at Beach Fire Bar & Grille in Clearwater Beach, Florida, and the waitress asked what side dish I wanted. I hadn't thought about it and as I scanned the menu for options, I decided I would order the one that I was sure not to like, and that was coconut rice. However, I decided to be my own mother and make myself take at least one bite. It was so delicious I ended up eating the entire bowl.
