What food do you absolutely hate? Is there anything you would never touch in a million years? How did you come to hate it?

This is probably why your boss hates you and you whine like a bitch on WSO all the time.

Eat more dumplings so you're less of an insecure and immature loser.

Xoxo.

Its not even a matter of just being too poor to eat anything better, but rather ts like they are purposely coming up with the most discusting food you can think of to troll people.. 'here lets just take these eggs and marinate them in a kid's piss'.. Like wtf

That's not real "authentic" Chinese food, go to an upscale Cantonese restaurant and you'll really enjoy the food there. I grew up in a pretty Asian-dominant town (Cupertino, in Silicon Valley) and I literally grew up eating at Chinese and Cantonese restaurants. Stay away from any central Chinese restaurants and you'll be fine.

"If it has four legs and is not a chair, has wings and is not an aeroplane, or swims and is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it."

I swear the Chinese century egg I ate one time gave me PTSD

Nov 16, 2018

If you ate it cold, you are being trolled by someone. Eat it with some hot porridge with green onion and pepper and it is nice

Authentic Chinese is sort of hit or miss. I've tried some of the best food ever and the worst food ever at authentic restaurants. You really have to know what to order.

Also, side note, authentic Chinese restaurants don't make it easy for you. I remember ordering this duck appetizer with my wife a few years back. We're thinking...."Hey Peking Duck is great. This is a safe bet." What comes out was slices of cold and raw duck....like basically duck taken out of a fridge and just placed on a plate uncooked. WTF???

Broccoli. Was force fed it even though I absolutely hated it as a child so now I pretty much have PTSD. If I smell it being cooked in the room I start to gag

This is me and the smell of liver and onions. Couldn't stay in the house when my mom would cook this for her and my dad. She'd give me a dollar to get a slice of pizza and a soda and I'd eat it on the stoop and I wouldn't go back in until she called me from the window that they were done and that any leftovers were in safely hidden in the fridge, LOL.

Fermented Fish, that salty and putrid smell is just repulsive. The darn thing is basically rotting in salt.

The kind of shit that pops up on my Instagram feed with a white girl making a face like she just witnessed someone die when she picks up the food. Melted Cheese + Hot Cheeto hamburgers, 60 inch pizzas (like wtf), 40 patty stacked burgers, Pineapple + some weird thing like candycorn pizza.

Cilantro, heard somebody say that genetics determines if you like or hate this but frankly just smelling the stuff makes me wonder if some italian-french caveman liked the look of this smelly grass by the side of the road on his meat and decided to stick it on everything.

Cilantro is amazing, I feel sorry for you. You lost the genetic lottery in that aspect.

It's a real thing. People often say it tastes like soap and can't stand it in the slightest in any food.

Pizza, hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, coleslaw, etc.

Basically anything that even has a remote semblance of ghetto.

I wish I was trolling, but I was dead serious in that comment. Some people just have no taste I guess.

Mushrooms and aubergine - Aubergines I simply dislike everything about them, but mushrooms I like the flavour, it's just the texture that's a problem, I'm eating some every now and then to try and grow accustomed to it, so far progress has been slow.

There's an Asian fruit called durian, it's not bad tasting but the smell is pungent, many places ban you from taking it inside due to the smell, such as the metro in Singapore.

I can't stand any and all pretentious foods. Example: vegan burger. It's not a burger. It's a bean sandwich. Call it what it is (not to mention only people who've never had a taste of beef in their life, and are about to topple over from lack of energy and protein deficiency would make such fucking outrageous claims as "it tastes like beef!" GTFO!) or the only person you're fooling is the one staring back at your pale self in the mirror.

Also, @Lloyd BIankfein is on point - ASS is the OG of delicatessen! :)

Fish (except tuna salad with a ton of mayo and relish)...I was forced to eat gross midwestern river/lake fish my entire childhood. Clean your plate was a hard requirement in my farm life childhood, and we had gross, poorly prepared fish a few times a week.

My wife is from Seattle and obsessed with fish and always forces me to try the most amazing fish she orders. I never like it so it's not for lack of trying. I worked at Citi in Tribeca and got drug to NoBu at least twice a week for lunch which didn't cure me either. I will say that I do prefer fish in a roll over cooked fish.
