Oysters: might get laid, but (I ask you) is it worth eating salty snot?
Maybe it's my culinary skills...
but has a really small window of awesomeness between being under and overcooked
well, they are non-veg tbf
Mushrooms are not only overrated they're also incredibly shit
Not knocking it, I'll eat some any time you care to put it in front of me, but seemingly 90% of the global population* fetishise it like it's the fountain of youth. It's just bacon.
*excluding Jews, Muslims, and anyone else who doesn't eat it for religious or cultural reasons, but including Western vegetarians who all bang on about it all the time.
Many many omnivores think that a bacon sarnie is the ultimate temptation for veggies, but most veggies couldn't really give a shit about 'em.
the worst smelling food. Makes me avoid the canteen at work :(
It's just bacon. It's perfectly fine. Has its place. But it's nothing to cum in your pants over.
That the German word for "comfort eating" literally translates as "bacon grief".
I thought that meant the weight you gain while comfort eating, rather than the eating itself?
Relying on info from German mates here.
with the exclusion of Canadian peameal bacon, which is easily the best thing ever, and is also not really even fucking bacon, but a breaded gammon steak.
^^^let's get real here, folks
I'd add scones to this as well
fresh out the oven, with butter and apricot conserve is absolute magic.
Croissants might just be the second greatest thing in the history of existence.
Liv Tyler is the first, obviously.
Liv Tyler is sort of like the croissant of the girl world so no surprises there
I like strong cheddars, stilton, mozzarella in particular. They're all fine.
But I don't get people who will happily just sit and chomp on a block of cheese all night. And get really, really fucking excited about it in shops as if they're going to put it on every meal they'll ever have. Maybe they will. But come on, it's just cheese.
for a cheese board and some crackers
I was actually in a party once, everyone was wasted but one guy was more excited about having some of the posh cheese he found in the fridge
This is exactly the sort of cheese hysteria I'm talking about
Just let's not shit ourselves
unless the party is winding down... less likely to have the cheese knocked onto the floor that way.
who rates it as anything other than something to keep sandwiches from being dry.
Put it on roasts ffs
supermarket sandwiches are bad for this
dunno how these threads still have the ability to get me irked
Burgers - sure everyone likes a nice burger but the amount of blogs dedicated to them and the number of places where you have to queue just to get one is a bit baffling.
Donuts - esp Krispy Kreme. They're just donuts, pleasant enough but calm yourself rudeboy.
Pulled Pork - again tasty enough but lets not go overboard.
Falafel - pleasant but c'mon you're kidding yourself a bit.
plus its a hassle to eat
(have had them, they're alright, but undeserving of the pant-wetting coverage they had)
I like the first few mouthfuls of a really bloody steak with au poivre sauce, yeah fucking delicious, but a whole slab of it? Just a bit boring.
so many different cuts and can be cooked to varying levels depending on cut and what you fancy. always feel so satisfied after eating it too, combo of richness and the fact that its just a big lump of protein maybe? really want steak now.
All foods mentioned so far are brilliant.
but I had squid recently and it's fucking great, thought I'd hate it.
the hassle involved in shelling them is never worth the taste pay-off
that's why you get indonesian slaves to do it
tho i maybe overrate it slightly cos i eat it infrequently. one of my favourite foods texturally. see also: fish roe in any sushi dish.
the texture is fascinating and moreish.
i find nothing more offputting in people than timidity/ squeamishness when it comes to food.
you'd hate to eat with me. i was 20 when i tried my first prawn (in that sushi place in lemaington spa) and my friends were disgusted by how traumatising the whole experience was for me (altough tbf it was one of those gigantic prawns with the face still on)
How can people be so joyless over food..?
Because Mushrooms fucking suck
I love all the foods mentioned so far, but potatoes make so much bland, crap food with a rank texture.
Baked, boiled, mashed - all rank.
Chips and waffles are good as long as there isn't loads of sludgy potato in the middle.
Crisps get an absolute pass.
bloody love it. Problem is, it's often done poorly.
Granted I hate the stuff, but I am so bored of picking up any ready made meal that remotely resembles asian food and it containing a shit load of coriander.
but I don't have that funny enzyme that makes it taste bitter.
That weird lunch place Pod puts it on everything too. I probably don't have the enzyme or whatever, so it tastes sort of like soap. And not in a pleasant, hand sanitiser kind of way.
tasting soap or insects is the enzyme. I can't stand the stuff. It's awful.
It's ok but a bit boring and sickly.
Vitrtually all vegetables.
I've still got a chocolate Santa in my fridge from christmas, cba, it sends my friends potty that I just didn't neck it all straight away. Really have to be in the mood for it and rarely am.
And the madness of some folk for it almost rivals the cheeseheads. Almost.
came here to say chicken. Except perhaps wings. Roast chicken is the worst roast option, below nut roast for me. In sandwiches, pasta, a fried chicken breast - dull as fuck. Even free range fancy chicken, I could live without it entirely ta.
it's all just dressed up to be better than it is.
People need to get over this TODAY
the best thing about chickens is eggs.
bacon - nice enough
ham - alright
pork chops - nah
gammon - rank
all of teh massive jiozzing over pork belly. I dont' think I've ever had it where I wasn't sick almost immediately afterwards- so fatty and greasy, it gives me the boke.
OH BUT THE FLAVOUR!! er no, fuck off, i'd rather have a packet of bacon crips
It was very fatty and the crackling had gone a bit hard and chewy, it was in a pub at around 4pm so it may have been sitting around a while. Tasty though. But it was just too much fat.
it just rejects it entirely. and I say that as a glaswegian who thinks that chips count as 4 of my 5 a day.
I actually feel sick thinking about pork belly now.
nope sorry, you are wrong
Why not just stew some pennies in your food instead?
I mean, yes, it's good, it's very good, but it's not jizz-in-my-pants good like pork belly, liver of any kind, scallops, razor clams or confit de canard, to name but 5 foodstuffs that DO make me jizz in my pants.
fuck knows what is in them but artrrrggghh they make me go a biy funny. i love them. Confit de canard too. riletes. bone marroe. foods that seem to resonate in a place so deep inside you that you did't even know was there.
Hahaha oh man. You are of course fucking insane.
lobster is fine I guess? but there's a reason you used not to be allowed to feed it to prisoners more than twice a week.
but lobster>>>>>>liver>>pork belly
I'd probs go crab over lobster.
luckily all of these questions are mad abstract so I get to have deliciously done lobster where it's really good and crab where it's really good and liver where it's really good and etc etc etc.
bone marrow is still for chumps though.
to be less of a fighty prick
over pretty much anything. Heaven.
when you factor in a) the price and b) the faff of it. Look - it's nice. Really nice in fact. But like fuck am I paying/working that much to eat the fucking thing.
but bone marrow. just meh flavourless meat goo. one of the worst offenders of the "things poor people use to have to eat than rich people have decided that want to eat" category imo. Baffling.
you never had osso buco? well tasty
I'm talking about BM where you just get a chunk of bone filled with fat goo.
the belmfuel that I got handed as part of a hawksmoor breakfast was pretty dull though.
but you know when you have to cook your own dinner on a skillet/hotplate at the table? Strips of meat and onions and that. Can't fucking stand that. Honestly can't.
usually quite pricey, but it is strips of meat and veg and you stick them in your own wraps at the table. It is a kebab, and not a very good one at that.
Although granted mexican food over here is generally mediocre at best.
but the only one anyone ever seems to bother making at home. FAJITA NIGHT! no. sort yourselves out and have a fucking quesadilla.
I mean other than Americans who don't know better.
No results. Well done everyone.
stonebaked fire oven pizzeria jobby = all of it please
shop bought = cheap, quick, tasty, effortfree - might have one now
takeaway = takes longer, costs more and tastes worse than shop bought ones. Domino's especially is a horrible stodgy doughy mess. only acceptable when hammered after the shops have closed
are usually crap. Some take the piss aswell, pushing £20 for a single pizza! Then you need sides, drinks etc. You could eat like a king in a fancy restaurant for the price of a Dominoes for two. Somehow pizzas from crappy kebab shops are often much nicer, and less than a tenner.
Coffee. Tastes like dirt and hot water.
it's good. but it's also salty and rubbery and far worse than countless cheeses that don't need to be cooked to be edible
was in some Greek island harbour, served grilled with olive oil & fresh thyme. It was fucking spectacular. Doesn't work so well in the UK.
I just got a semi thinking about it.
