Foie Gras is AMAZING!

Also fucking goose intestine is so friggen good, they have really fresh shit in Asia none in Vancouver.

I was in Fong Wing Kee in Hong Kong not too long ago... so damn good. Their satay for their hotpot soup is fucking amazing as well.

Buy the organic stuff. I don't recall the name of the fruit stand, but wife bought some strawberries in Steveston/Richmond area and they were fucking fabulous. They only sell them when they're in season though.

Ever tried dipping strawberries in raw sugar? So fucking good.

Dipping them in condensed milk is fucking amazing too.

Can't handle the smell of it, it's so bad I smell it when people had it an hour ago or were around people that did. I also don't go into Korean Restaurants voluntarily. I come out borderline racist but whatever.

Buy fresh strawberries from Krause farms. They are the best.









They have an amazing strawberry, raspberry, blueberry custard pie every summer! I buy 2-3 everytime I'm there in August. It's so damn good! I'll have to snap a few photos of it this year hah.


I don't like eating barszcz (Polish red beat soup aka borscht) kind of a popular soup in some European countries. My mother makes it a few times a year, especially during the Christmas holidays and I pass everytime I'm offered. I don't know why, i just don't like it. So I make myself tomato soup instead with lots of veggies and rice along with a very large plate of pierogis

Allergic to nuts. Being a cook and being allergic to nuts is a fucking bitch.
Of normal food that I hate: Romaine lettuce takes the cake. I fucking hate it. Bitter, crunchy water. I know its a weird one.

personally I find durian to be overly rich and sweet.

I won't eat bugs.

these days strawberries just don't taste the same as when we were kids (at least ones from the larger supermarkets).

That's because most of the Strawberries in the store are shipped up from the states, where they were picked green before the sugars have a chance to develop. I agree they taste like shit, and I don't like them either.

But come June-July when the local strawberries ripen and go on sale, so fucking good like eating candy. I stopped at the local farm twice a week on my drive home from work to get them.

Tomatoes are the same way, they fucking pick them green so they taste like crap. It's why I like growing my own in the summer, properly vine ripened tomatoes taste sweet.

My entire life, I've never liked the taste of Cantaloupe or Honeydew melons.


I've eaten them both a bunch of times, and I've never really found them appetizing.

+1 on cantaloupe/honeydew and also add papaya to the mix. The texture and also the fact its only semi-sweet is kinda meh.

Also the shitty out of season farmed raw tomatoes. Barely any flavour just watery gelatinous tomato-flavoured water.

Just as an FYI, strawberries do not ripen once picked - they are picked just before optimum ripeness but after they've reddened. That's why US strawberries are not as sweet as the local variety. Also, I suspect the US variety that we get here have been bred for maximum yield, and not taste.

This is also the case with many varieties of the tomatoes we get in supermarkets. They have been bred for maximum yield and not much attention has been paid to taste and (with tomatoes) colour. BC Hothouse tomatoes that have been ripened on the vine are the best alternative to growing your own.

If you ever get the chance, try fresh Japanese strawberries... Believe me I know how good the local BC strawberries are, but the ones they grow in Japan are HUGE and juicy and sweet as fuck. Really expensive though...

The best strawberries I ever had were wild strawberries in Poland.

Tiny little things, but the most intense strawberry flavour you'll ever taste, and sweet too. Even better when they're made into a dessert perogi filling.

I'll chime in ...

There isn't much I don't eat ... I'll eat ANYTHING ... and to a point, I have already devoured many weird things in my lifetime. I'll try anything once. (don't ask, you will be horrified)

What I really don't like and probably will never like:
Bitter Melon - I try to eat this once every year to see if I can "acquire" a taste for them since everyone always tells me it's good for me, and it is delicious if you like it, blah blah blah ... been 30 years running and ... nope.
Pumpkin - Can't stand the sickly sweet yet funky pungent taste. Hard to describe, but ya this one's a write-off.

Stuff I used to hate but now don't mind:
Chinese Mushrooms
Durian
Okra

The only thing I can't eat is olives... I'm pretty sure they are what dry erase markers taste like.

I'll eat pretty much anything else. Life is easier when you're not a picky eater!

MUSHROOMS, oysters.. and anything that comes close to an expiry date...

its not the taste of mushrooms that gets me, just how they are grown.. Oysters can taste great, but again, the texture and knowing what it is bothers me... and i have my own place so i eat out alot, i tend not to trust leftovers or anything close to expiry lol

needless to say i waste alot of money on food...

Onions

Simply can't deal with them, smell of them makes me gag and if I actually eat it by mistake it will throw me completely off my meal.
