    Salad. Nutrients are NECESSARY, I don't have to pretend I enjoy them THANKS

    Potato purists "oh, I'd much prefer a bland old boiled new potato to chips". I think I just never forgave them for insisting that if you chip a potato up and fry it, it's somehow magically not a vegetable, but some bland grey boiled potato is very good for you. Notably these are often the same people who don't eat potato jackets.. I steal my parents'.. waste not WANT NOT.

    I second the soggy onions too..

    and Curry. ESPECIALLY Thai Green Curry that people havent fucking shut up about for the last 5 years.

    I HATE FOODIES, basically

    I agree with Davina on the potatoes - overrated and unhealty. Too much carbs! Unfortunately, it seems to be the most popular food in my country.

    oh .. reading the rest of this thread, I agree with the steak thing. My parents just go ON and on about "oh we've got a lovely bit of steak" .. i just cant tell the difference between a 'good' steak and another steak.

    and back to the snobs .. if you eat a steak, that's fine, but if you mince it up and reform it, it's somehow culinarily invalid.

    So I LIKE McDonalds .. so what? You're not going to fucking talk me out of it by some withering look as if I rummage through bins for food.

    *breathes* .. im not sure what all this ranting came from, I must be repressed..

    I don't understand it when people say "I love pasta"... surely it's whatever sauce you've got on it that you like, not the pasta itself as it tastes of NOTHING. No?

    NO and YES.



    Takeaway pizza is covered in vile fat and grease and stuff. It's NAUSEATING. Baked Potato is alright, but eaten far too much when there are so many better things you could do with a spud.


    My personal choice would be Chinese food, esp the takeawy. The stuff is RANCID, HALF COOKED-HALF MICROWAVED, covered in hairs and roaches, and although some dishes are alright, most mix wildly different tastes in a hugely haphazard way, and taste utterly vile. Everyone I know loves it, but I simply can't stand it at all. I like Thai, but Chinese makes me feel sick...

    No No No No No! If it's a cheap restaurant, then medium is your best bet, otherwise they just burn it. But if you're in a decent establishment, then go for well done: they mix the juices in properly, and with only a few herbs, make a truly mouthwatering piece of meat...

    It's not the curry so much that I take issue to.. it's how people talk like it's much more exotic than the usual curry, like they've personally gone on some expedition to the back of beyond and found a 'best-kept secret' or something. Not like you can't buy the ingredients in Sainsburys as easily as you could a baguette.


    OH. AND BAGUETTES. Suddenly everything is much classier when the bread is in a different SHAPE.

    Sorry but there seems to be a misunderstanding here. Kate is right. A steak should be served raw and bloody.

    I was referring to frying it at home really. In a cheap restaurant it's generally crap whatever you ask for...

    I really hate Cheese. Pizza in particular must be the most overrated food ever. It's utterly vile.


    I'll always be thin. :)
