OK, everyone's bragging about how big their adventurous food dicks are, but I want to go the other way. What have you ordered that was too much for you to handle?

I thought Natto would be right up my alley, but it turns out that I am just not that wordily. Did OK for the first couple bites, but when that aftertaste really sank in, I had to give up.

And I recently got a bowl of yen ta fo at a Thai restaurant. This one I finished, but the intense acid with the intense sweetness, and the fish flavors... I'm making it sound really good, actually, but it was just too intense for me.

Whenever natto gets brought up, I feel compelled to being back cooking with charmmi:

For me, that would be durian and a fish based pho that I tried. Durian is like eating farts, and I swear anyone who claims to like it is just waving their food dick around to impress others. Food should not taste like garbage.

Durian is creamy and doesn't actually taste bad it just smells bad, so I think it's more like eating pudding while someone is farting in your face

Before I knew what durian was, I bought some kind of durian coconut milk ice cream from Jungle Jim's and I thought it was pretty good.

They sell durian at the farmers market near my place. I have never tried it, but I may need to now. They have both fresh and frozen.

Lutefisk. With cream sauce.
I know there are whole cults devoted to the stuff but to me it tastes almost completely, but not entirely, unlike fish.

I was supposed to get a taste of Surstromming, but I have been led to believe that due to norming of federal regulations with EU laws DHS now considers it a hazardous material and requires a special license to import.

Guys, that last thread lasted 66 pages. That's pathetic.

I ordered some larb at a local Thai restaurant and asked for it to come back right spicy. It was spicy alright, but it also smelled like straight up farts. I don't know what it was, but it was rank. There was just no way my girlfriend and I could eat it.

Maybe they amped the heat with nuoc nam, thus also adding smelly fish sauce to the dishes?

There is this trick. Dip the peaches in boiling water for a count of 5, and then the skin peels right off. I only ate the skin when I was sneaking them from the orchard.

It reminds me of the Germans complaing that the tamales were tasty but the wrapper was too stringy and tough. When someone told them the secret (don't eat the corn husks), they went and unwrapped the burritos too.

I'm really not a fan of sushi anymore, mostly because I can't justify the cost when really good fish and mediocre fish taste almost the same to my palate. I think smoking, hard liquor, and flavorpunch food have taken their toll, because I remember I used to enjoy it a lot more.

Will still eat the hell out of uni though, and japanese food is so varied that losing sushi isn't a big hit.

I'm kinda approaching that from the other way around. I've eaten lots of really good sushi since I was young, so all the sushi I have access to now just tastes... mediocre. And now that I'm paying for my sushi, instead of mooching off of rich relatives when I was young, I'm really not willing to go and pony up serious percentages of my paycheck for some sushi that reminds me of what I used to eat.

And I'm really not willing to go around to the neighborhood "sushi" joint and pay like 7 bucks for a "dragon" roll or whatever the gently caress the kids eat nowadays.

Yeah, I feel the same way about eating some tex wasabi sushi poo poo, it basically eliminates the point of eating raw fish, which is tasting the quality. There is some stuff I really like still (I had this uni/foie sushi thing and Nobu Malibu) but that isn't really sushi and it is super expensive.

I also think I am becoming obsessed with this restaurant near my place which is really awesome, but every time I go I am seriously disappointed by at least one item. It's fairly new, but it feels like a bad girlfriend.

I am incredibly saddened by American sushi. I'd love to have some inari, but nobody seems to really make it around here. At least I found a good place for soba. But there's so many places into fusion stuff it kinda blows my mind.

Lavendar anything. Stop putting lavendar in desserts, it tastes like soap. loving gross.
Mussels. I keep trying them but I just don't really like them. Clams are awesome though.
Although I don't like raw clams on my sushi. Not a fan of that snappy rubberbandy texture. Nope.

I have to disagree with most of this...

Christopher Elbow makes some amazing chocolates filled with a lavender caramel. As far as mussels go, they're awesome...especially when served with fries. Low tide smells like...well, if I walk out my door. It smells like "the bay."

"The Bay" smells like poo poo.

I've only had clams in my linguine, in my chowdah, or in my Treasure Chest, and they're clearly awesome in all of those instances.

I had those in some sort of mixed seafood fra diavolo thing. It was delicious, and had the additional bonus of freaking my sister out.

Agreed with the lavender, I don't understand it... it isn't a nice dessert flavour. Even when it's done really well it's still not great and I just thinking about all the different more awesome flavours you could have used instead.

I know, which is why my peaches are mostly eaten as either cobblers or peach marmalade. I can submit to such a fate. The main problem is that good peaches have been difficult to get hold of the last few years, a peach shouldn't be crispy like an apple dammit

Lavender is a horrible British fop-thing which I think grew out of the whole Provenco-romanticism of the nineties coupled later with St. Nigella-of-the-Bountiful-Bosom using it, which is weird considering how she otherwise has pretty good taste.

I didn't enjoy durian very much the first time, but it's grown on me a lot and now I love the stuff.

I have tried durian, and I really wanted to like it. It was in a desert with shaved ice.

Could only take a couple of bites, then the sulfuric fumes was making me gag. It smelled like it was made with mercaptoethanol, a familiar smell to anyone who has worked in a molecular biology lab. Sun ripe garbage is the closest thing.

Haven't tried fresh durian, will try if I get the opportunity.
