Sounds like the Naan. If I recall he had a very heavy accent. They looked yellow, smelled strong, and yup looked like herbs and stuff. They were kinda clear but I think it’s because they weren’t dry yet. They literally had them on the floors, opened all the drawers, beds, sink area, it was gross.From the sound of it, either naan bread (unleavened, stuffed with herbs and taters and very tasty) or papadums (made with lentil flour, delicious with chutney or raita).
Dunno if I'd eat either one after it was "cured" in a motel room, though. That's more mystery protein than I care to ingest. Ugh.
