Durn. Forgot, I did use to eat mangos. Before the dried salted ones. Been about 49 years so didn't come to mind for awhile. Used to get sliced green mangos off of food carts, along with a mixture of coarse salt and coarse sugar to dip the slices in and then eat. Some people used to get ripe mangos the same way, but I never could stand ripe mangos.
Those food carts had some gooood stuff. Like fresh pineapple, and the mangos. One used to come up the street I lived on and usually parked close to my apartment building. Had a huge kettle, with a fire under, and at a rolling boil. Had bowls you could eat from, but my girlfriend would take out two large bowls and get them filled - the price started at 5 cents US, 5 cents at a time, up to a 25 cents US, all according to what you got. Basic was just noodles. I used to get the 25 cent bowls, with noodles, fish balls, beef balls (actually water buffalo which is the same as regular beef, just a bit coarser, but same taste), not sure what else, and it tasted great.
