Food Dislikes



  • What foods do you dislike? Personally I'm quite open to anything that is edible and tastes nice, but there are a few things that I'm not a fan of even if I might end up eating them anyway. I don't really like cauliflower unless it's cauliflower cheese or is spiced up in a curry paste. Shepherds Pie is tolerable and nice but I wouldn't say it thrills me at all. I've got more but cannot think of them right now.



  • Leek.

    I really can't stand it.



  • I am pretty open minded to all sorts of foods and trying new things. Off the top of my head though, when I tried urchin the last time I got sushi, I absolutely hated it. I love seafood and fish of all sorts, but this flavor was just not my cup of tea.The flavor just stuck in my mouth for a long period afterwards too.



  • I feel an extreme sense of disgust every time I see fruit-based dishes. I also hate spicy stuff, anything too spicy can put me into a bad mood for the rest of the day. A lot of the local delicacies here involve some sort of spicy taste, which sucks for me.



  • Chantilly might be the only thing you'd have to pay me to eat.

    Other than that I'm OK with anything. Well except cat or dog for cultural reasons. Although stuff like american cheese or mayo I'll only eat if there's absolutely nothing else or by mistake.



  • Olives
    Unprocessed tomato (raw or cooked)
    Fully sprouted mung beans (they trigger a gag reflex - I really like barely sprouted mung beans, though)
    Spearmint (makes me queasy)
    Fermented health drinks such as kefir & kombucha - tastes like drinking acid
    Anything with a licorice-like flavour, including fennel and swiss cheese
    Cotton candy - way, way too sweet
    Unflavoured coffee
    Food analogues - anything who's ingredient list reads like a laboratory's pantry

    Raisins... really really cant stand them in food or anything
    Other dried fruits and nuts, not a fan, nuts can work in some cases, but most not so much.
    Olives, just nope, I've tried but cant get to it.
    Sundried tomatoes, unless they are inside something.
    Cherry in things. I like fresh cherry on its own, but as soon as you have it in something or flavour, Im out.
    Kinda same with black currant.



  • @jdincinerator Nope. You're not getting my personal data to sell that easily!

    Tomatoes and Mushrooms



    • Sweet tomato sauce kinda like how Filipino's do it. Eff that.
    • Canned tomato sauce
    • Pizza Pizza, Pizza Hut, Dominos, or any of that shit.
    • Kraft Dinner
    • Miracle Whip
    • Bologna
    • Hot wet gross ass blueberries ruining perfectly fine pancakes

    FYI, I'm Italian.



  • @dipset I'm guessing you like authentic pizza and not all these takeaway phony pizzas? I love Pizza Hut personally but authentic Pizzas are brilliant and actually taste like the real deal. Dominos I used to like but their advertisements especially over this way in the UK-are insufferable-as are the selection of Pizzas. As for blueberries I don't mind them but I prefer grapes.



  • The herby bitterness of coriander is quite horrible.



  • @jdincinerator Dominoes used to have my favorite pizza chain thin crust, but then they rebranded because "people hated their crust and said it tasted like cardboard", so they started flavoring their crusts with herbs and stuff and changed their thin crust recipe too, and now it is awful, and I'll forever be upset about it.



  • @jdincinerator yeah I assume you're talking about the leaves and not the seeds? What the UK calls "coriander" (the leaves) a lot of other places call "cilantro". We call the seeds coriander and a lot of people (myself included) say it tastes like soap. Somebody once told me that it's a genetic thing. All I know is when you don't know it's in something, the shock is like getting punched in the face when you get the first taste.

    I mean, I'm not a pizza snob. I'm all for people trying new things with pizza. I tried an innovative "sandwich" pizza in Rome next to the Pantheon. It was really damn good and that country is pretty conservative with it's cuisine. So I don't care about "this isn't an authentic New York style" as much as I care about it tasting good.

    What I have such a disdain for are these awful chain pizza corporations producing identical tasting cardboard pizza. In high school and early 20s I'd be drunk at 2-4am walking home and usually the default restaurant that's open that late is Pizza Pizza or Smoke's Poutinerie.

    Both suck, but I'll go hungry before I eat Pizza Pizza. That shit has absolutely no flavour whatsoever. Domino's isn't far behind, but both are essentially cheap sauce over occasionally cooked (but often under cooked) cardboard.

    I don't know how people can eat this chain pizza shit when every neighbourhood has solid pizza shops.



  • @e_zed_eh_intern I am from the UK so coriander is what us lot say to describe those pungent leaves.



  • I don't like chow mein very much either.
