    food disasters

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by katina, Aug 3, 2018.

    What would you say is the worst food you have ever come across?

    For me there are two to start with:

    whole chicken stuffed in butter deep fried in oil
    and
    deep fried balls of butter covered in syrup.

    I mean what:eek: soz but that really put me off. o_O

    If I ever want to commit Fooduicide, I'll try some deep fried butter.

    Worst dish I've ever eaten was Natto: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natt%C5%8D

    Lobster, it gets all rubbery and crusty.
    Mushrooms (except in Mushroom Gravy).
    Budweiser and pretty much all American beer
    except MGD.
    And pretty much damn near anything slathered
    and smothered in cheese with a few exceptions. :p

    Paella. Rice with seafood?
    It is the spanish national dish.
    A bit like risotto but that would be italian.

    Nope never had it.
    Though oddly enough crayfish (crawdads) with wild-rice
    and pinon nuts is pretty good.

    $30/lb we charge for lobster ($10.95/lb my cost). And people are dumb enough to pay for it. Boggles my mind. $102 for a 3lb baked stuff. Sold 4 tonight.

    I remember being disappointed the first time I tasted lobster because I love crab and scallops and was expecting something several notches above them.

    As for food disasters...I despise eggs. They make me gag, and the less said about the smell of them while they're cooking, the better. The Ex, who was a chef, didn't know this and made me a beautifully presented omelette as our first meal together. It looked gorgeous on the plate, and he'd gone to a lot of effort by making a tomato sauce from scratch, sauteeing the ingredients separately, and garnishing it perfectly. I didn't want to hurt his feelings, so I gagged down about half of it and pretended I wasn't hungry. Ugh.

    Olives. I almost threw up the first time I ate one.

    Additionally, I remember once eating beef jerky on a road trip where I got car sick. Then, for almost a year after that I couldn't eat beef jerky because it would make me feel sick o_O

    Thought I was the only Murican that hated our beer.

    Can only drink the foreign beers. Like Guinness, Carlsberg and the great indoors drink - Asahi.

    I don't like eggs either because they are not fresh. I reckon I was told anyway fresh from the farm are really nice. :)

    From my personal experience, if Guinness comes from a can, it tastes like old man's fags (cigarettes)...at least that is what my taste buds tell me! Never had it from a pub, though. :p

    I also hate olives, marzipan, aniseed, meringue, there's bound to be a lot more too. Pretty much anything that is strong. Too much salt or too much sugar makes me feel sick. :blech: I can't handle spicy or hot food either.

    Red kidney beans - the devil's turds, they are!

    Oh and fresh coriander/cilantro. If I want my food to taste like it's been sprinkled with the shavings from a bar of soap, I'll use a bar of soap as it's cheaper.

    As do most people I know. You're all wrong, of course. You should be sorry.

    There are many things I don't like, but Swedish caviar definitely takes the first, second, and third place. Last time I tried it was when I was a little kid (maybe 6-7 years old), and I just puked straight away. To this day I get nauseous just from the smell, sometimes to the brink of puking... And it didn't help that my brother had it on every breakfast sandwich he ate for like 10 years... :blech:

    Is there anything more onholy, more unclean? It sits there, seeping, oozing onto the serving plate. A nightmare trawled from the benthic zone.

    Your cousins fight one another for the most gelatinous, most phlegm-like portions. Minions of the dark, they are.

    You try to slip away, out of the room, pray your Auntie Rosario - she who brought this abomination to the party - doesn't see you slinking out into the living room. If she catches you, you get the biggest piece, wiggling, jiggling on your plate like a caramelized sneeze.
