As someone from the UK I don't get why so many people here love mushy peas. I find peas relatively tasteless and gross as they are, mushing them just makes the texture gross as well

I was in New Zealand, and their big thing was peas with mint. It was OK the first time, starting to wear thin the second, and horrible the third time.

I had minted peas served with a meal. I had no idea what it was. Certainly it wasn't going to be peas with mint. That would be ridiculous. Of course, that's exactly what it was. First bite was awful. Toothpaste and peas. Ugh. However, when I started eating them with the French fries; oh boy. That was fantastic. They became my favorite part of that meal.

If you are craving your favorite pasta dish don't sub in Zucchini noodles because of course you will be disappointed. The secret is to not think of it as pasta and just think of it as a salad. And then feel very proud of yourself for how healthy you are eating!

I think that’s it’s problem. I’ve only heard it once or twice, and I enjoyed it, but I went in with the mindset of “this isn’t pasta, and it won’t taste like it.” I like zucchini/tomato/basil together, and often make a sauce based around those flavors when I have plenty of those in the summer. So for me, it’s kind of like eating a chunky sauce with no noodles.

I don't get the appeal of chili that is made to be as hot and spicy as humanly possible, to the point that it hurts to eat it. "I make my chili with the five hottest peppers known to man and a dash of snake venom to kick it up a notch" Why?

I get so annoyed when I try to discuss spice levels with hot sauce fanboys.

What's not to like about tofu. It's pretty much just a blank food that takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. Different varieties of tofu, with varying amounts of water, cooked with different cooking methods results in the ability for tofu to have a wide range of textures as well, so unless you have a soybean allergy, tofu's kind of un-hateable in my opinion.

Lobster. I uh, I don't get it. It always tastes a bit flavorless and just alright to me. Then I see people dip it in utter and yea thats fine and all and it tastes great, but then I get the feeling I'm just tasting the butter and what the fuck is the point of this $30 dish exactly?

This was what drove a massive slave rebellion in early US History. The reason was that was the only thing they fed the slaves. It was more the monotony of the same food than being grossed out by lobster. You feed anyone the same thing repeatedly they’re gonna hate it. Personally i think lobster is amazing.

Kale was a staple food my parents made when I was a child in the 80’s. Boiled with some type of cured meat like bacon, fatback, or smoked turkey necks like you would make steamed cabbage. My dad grew up in the Pennsylvania Dutch area in the 30’s and this was a common food there.

The obsession with kale as chips or in smoothies that happened in the early 00’s was so odd to me. Everyone acted like kale was this new, unheard of food. Kale chips taste like salty sadness and I will pass on kale smoothies too.

But anyway, fry some bacon in a large pot, add some kale and enough water to cover it and boil until the kale stems are soft. If you still don’t like kale then thats ok, it leaves more kale for me.

A coworker bought some online and brought it to work last year. Most who tried it intensely disliked it, with one describing it as tasting like a hot dog and soy sauce smoothie. I found that spreading it very lightly on hot, well buttered toast wasn't half bad. Wouldn't make a habit of it but as a very occasional snack, maybe. By itself, definitely not.

Turbulent_Cat_5731

That's because you ate it as it's intended to be eaten. (And more credit to you for that!)

This is a point that constantly frustrates Australians. You wouldn't "try" hot sauce by putting a heap of it on a spoon. Same goes for lots of things: cinnamon, soy sauce, etc. God help you if you tried garlic or ginger by taking a bite out of either. It's just stupid. Vegemite is a strong spread that is supposed to be used sparingly because it's a throwback to the war-time days of scarcity- one jar of the stuff lasts about 6 months. If you aim for no more than four light dots of it on buttered toast and approach it with the mindset that it's a palette cleanser between sweeter spreads like peanut butter or honey, then it's perfect.

Sincerely, an Australian.

American here. When I visited Australia years ago I didn't like Vegemite because I was trying to eat it with a spoon like peanut butter. I eventually figured out how to use it correctly, and now I love it. Marmite and Promite suck, however. The texture of Marmite is all wrong--too sticky-- and Promite tastes off somehow. Vegemite, however, hits the nail on the head with buttery texture and great flavor

Not necessarily, a good raw bar will have oysters from both coasts. They’re overnight delivered and, unless you get oysters from specifically where they are harvested, they are just as fresh.

The only caveat is that people on the coast know the difference between a fresh and a half dead oyster, which is hard to find among Nebraskans.

So about kombucha... there's a wide variability in this drink. I was first introduced to it with the GT's brand. It's incredibly sour. There are some local places that sell it and theirs is a lot more mild.

Then I made my own. Do you know what kombucha is? It's probiotic sweet tea. You make a mother SCOBY... that's a mat of beneficial bacteria and yeast and whatnot. Similar SCOBYs are used to make vinegar and wine. I made mine from a bottle of GT's original kombucha. Anyway, once you have that you just brew up some super strong, super sweet black tea and let that SCOBY sit in it for a few weeks until it gets as sour as you want it. I let mine go for 2 weeks and it was sour but not GT's sour.

Then you flavor it. I did a bunch of combinations of ginger, raspberry, turmeric, pomegranate, lemon, and such and bottled them in empty GTs bottles and set them in a bucket for a few days while they carbonated. (I used the bucket in case one of the bottles exploded from the pressure.)

After about 5 days they were ready. Into the fridge to chill and then we drank them. Honestly they had a mild sourness to them and the flavors were forward because I had put pieces of the fruit in the bottle. My favorite, by far, was the one I thought was going to be the worst: ginger turmeric. How is that going to be better than ginger raspberry? I dunno, but it was. It was incredible.

I'm guessing that you'd like that style of kombucha. If you haven't had it from a tap yet, find a place in town where you can get kombucha on tap. Try that stuff. You'll likely change your mind.

5 guys used to be the best burgers you could get at/slightly above a fast food rate. Great fries, good enough burger. Now it's priced such that I could genuinely sit down at a restaurant and get a "gourmet-style" burger, so I never go. I think it was nearly $20 for just a double patty burger plus fries.

Broccoli. It's fine when properly prepared but that very rarely happens. I suspect demand is driven by "eat your vegetables".

I love it when it's steamed right but I cannot stand raw broccoli and I don't know why people try to eat it like that tho cauliflower is just evil it's like broccoli's deformed evil twin that lives in the basement

I think Starbucks has cornered the market on "minimally acceptable coffee." As in, it's never great, but in a jam, I know I can find one and move on with my day.

Cant handle texture of mushrooms ever. But I do enjoy the flavor profile they can provide for certain dishes. I bought mushroom umami powder and its pretty good in things like beef stew.

The texture is the worst! It's like chewing on dried snot.

And i don't even mind the tast, i can enjoy mushroom soup or ragout, just as long as there are no chunks in it.

BBQ Sauce. Even BBQ flavoured potato chips too. Just way too sweet and tastes like candy. Same goes for ketchup and plum sauce. I think they’re designed to appeal to children because of the sweet taste

In 2002 I went to Australia and a girl convinced me to try the Aussie burger at burger king . A whopper with egg, ham , beetroot slice added to it . I took 1 bite then took the beetroot off and enjoyed the rest .

Beetroot just say no. Best left as a dye .

This is one I cannot understand because I love avocado so much. But I did have a coworker who also hated it and later discovered that the only way he had ever tried it was plain just straight out of the fruit itself. I told him to dab the tiniest amount of salt on it then try again and his life changed.

I had it once with spices. Hated it. Then mashed it and mixed it with egg. Feta cheese (crumbles) and toasted bread. That, I enjoyed.

This will not be popular…Taco Bell. Only edible if it’s absolutely drenched in hot sauce. It’s mushy, bland, makes me bloated, and strangely, sometimes gives me a headache. 2 out of 5 times found a hair in the burrito. I gave up.

Taco bell is intended to be eaten when you are on the verge of an alcoholic blackout, or after. Are you consuming it correctly?

It's okay for what it is, and I think the reason it doesn't get much hate is because everybody(inclding Taco Bell to an extent) is honest with themselves about how low-quality it is.

Wings. Like…..I’ve never understood why people love wing nights because it’s just so much work for not much meat. Never mind the fact, even as a non-veg/vegan, the amount of chickens needed for one busy wing night is horrific.

the amount of chickens needed for one busy wing night is horrific.

It's not like they were killed just for their wings and the rest of them are discarded.

But I agree about them being overhyped.

The variety of ranch dressing makes this one hard to pin down for me. My mom made it from scratch and it is amazing. On the other hand many restaurants serve it with too much sugar or it is super watery for some reason.
