- I hate shellfish which most people find shocking. It's a texture thing more than a taste thing but I don't like the taste much, either.
- Other "normal" things I typically don't like: cauliflower, broccoli, eggs, and tea. I have liked all of them in some way, though.
The best cauliflower I've ever had at Coltivare in Houston.
- This might get me kicked out of blogland but I don't get Chipotle. Perhaps it's because Mission Burrito is its local cousin with more flair but I just don't get the Chipotle-specific love. The food mostly has no taste and you have to pay extra for sour cream. Not cool!
- I grew up eating these things called tuna patties that I choose to believe my grandma invented (though I'm sure she didn't) - canned tuna formed into a patty, dipped in egg, and then coated with a flour-breadcrumb mixture with a pinch of powdered sugar. This was my favorite dinner growing up; now the thought of it makes me ill and I haven't eaten canned tuna in years. No real reason, I just decided I didn't like it.
- I loathe the word "foodie" and just prefer to say that food is my hobby.
- I want so badly to like beer and red wine but I prefer my alcohol to be sweet like candy - give me all the cider and Riesling and the occasional Moscato (though I'm starting to think that is too sweet!).
- I can't tell you the last time I ate at McDonald's, Burger King, Jack in the Box, or Subway...
-... but I visit Chick-fil-a and Sonic regularly (so I'm not always a food snob).
- Thai, Indian, and Vietnamese foods were completely outside of my comfort zone until a few years ago and now they're all in my regular rotation. I can't believe I went so long without some of my new favorites.
Andrew recreated Som Tam (Thai papaya salad) at home the other night and it was so good we took a few bites before I took a pic!
- When friends won't try new things and go so far as to say there's nothing for them on a menu, I get irrationally annoyed,
- I used to love Starbucks like everyone else but then I started to explore more local coffee shops with housemade syrups and well... I'm kind of off the Starbucks wagon unless there's a groupon or I get a gift card. I would rather spend .50 more at a local shop for a better quality drink. Plus, when was the last time the 'bucks provided pretty latte art?
Sorry Starbucks. Maybe I'll come back when you have pretty coffee in real mugs?
- Someone asked me what my last meal would be and I've been thinking about it off and on for months and I can't narrow it down. Too hard!
So tell me, what are some of your food confessions?
Linking up with Kathy like always.
