This reminds me of the 5 or 6 times I tried coke in college. Friends kept insisting that I must not have liked it because I tried someone's shiatty coke and this time I was really going to like it.

Great, now the back of my throat is numb and it is making me want to barf and I'm talking to an asshole about nothing. Yay?

On the other hand, if any of you kids out there want to score free drugs, pretend not to like them. Your friends will go broke trying to impress you.

The guy has a right to his opinion.

I've had some awful food that folks rave about as if it's Gods gift to humanity and been around long enough to understand that people will eat dirt and wax all poetic about it.

I don't care if it takes three days to make that stinky, lumpy, spicy main course. It sucks, IMO, and I think you're an idiot for eating it.

Like Baloot. The Asian delicacy found mainly around Taiwan consisting of fetal ducks brought nearly to full term, then scalded to death in the shell. People who love that abomination like crunching on the little beaks, feathers and feet and slurping down the amniotic fluid they were steamed in.

I know folks who like Limburger Cheese and the foul smell of that stuff makes me wonder what desperate soul actually ate it in the first place instead of tossing it in the nearest volcano.

Then again, folks love Pizza Hut food. I don't consider Pizza Hut Pizza to be actually pizza and haven't yet figured out what the meat pellets are and I'm not actually sure if it's food..

I'm also a bit weary of 'spicy' foods. I don't like foods that might taste good, but you can't tell because the first bite sears the skin off your tongue, melts the enamel on your teeth, turns your stomach into a knotted ball of acid and then you get to brag about how, much later, it peeled the first layer of tissue off your anus when disposing of it.

I had a thing of Red Beans and Rice the other day. One of those heat and eat servings. Nowhere did it mention that the stuff was spicy. The first bite burned out my taste buds, stripped the skin from my mouth, cleaned out my sinuses, seared all of the tarter from my teeth and dumped a volcano-like portion into my stomach.

What little taste I got was good -- it's just that not being a masochist, I didn't figure it was worthwhile being in agony to continue eating it.

I've watched big, burly guys wolf down stuff buried in hot sauce, proclaiming how great it is as their faces turned red, they burst out in rivers of sweat, guzzled beer by the keg, their blood pressure soared and they produced a grin more like a death spasm to show others how manly they were.

Eskimos love killed, ungutted, small birds crammed in the fat lined skin of a seal and buried for a year in the frozen dirt to 'marinate'. They munch the buggers down feathers and all and you don't want to be down wind when they do.

Some of the best oriental soups I've had probably took the chef 30 minutes to make 10 gallons. The overall flavor was wonderful, the heat of the spices NOT designed to over power everything else and the separate ingredients all had just the right flavor and texture.

Don't forget now, the 'new yuppies' consider it a wonderful ritual to cook up the placenta of their new born child and dine on it with fine wines and close friends. After all, it's natural since animals do it.
Many birds and dogs eat the feces of their young or even their own and THAT'S natural also, but I ain't gonna do it. Elephants have been known to dig in each others arses for a dollop of feces, which they then eat.

Natural also but I prefer not to try it.

Then there's bird spit soup.

I have eaten bulls balls and found them remarkably bland, curiously unsatisfying in texture and the sauce made the meal. I'm not going to run out and buy a batch.

I've had those $5.00 coffees from Starbucks and while good, I actually had better from Mac Donalds for $2.00. A few old time diners (greasy spoon versions) gave me cups of coffee that I'd fight for and slapped down a plate of eggs I'd consider close to the food of the gods.

Usually I figure if the Yuppies and Hipsters like it, I'm probably not going to.

I don't care if thousands rave about a certain food. If it doesn't taste good to me, I aint gonna eat it and I aint gonna promote it.

I've tried some ethnic foods from my ancestry that my relatives raved about and decided they had their taste buds in their arses. Especially home made, old time breads and pastries. (Some of my ancestors never heard of producing a loaf of bread that didn't weigh a ton.)

So, I applaud the author for his candidness. From reading the remarks on the site, almost no one else did.

Almost every single time, people need to tell me how wrong I am and how I must try it at their place and add just the right amount of Sriracha and not doing this is why I didn't like it.

Sounds like tofu cultists I have met. No, tofu doesn't take on the essence of whatever oils you annoint it with. At its best it is tasteless and slimy and at its worst both the taste and texture are horrid. No, I am not going to try it just one more time because this chef mixes it with dried broccoli excrement and the taste is to die for. Or more likely to die from.

I actually have had a different experience.  Yeah, pho is really popular and ubiquitous in Seattle, so you're going to have it eventually whether you want to try it or not.  My first couple times I didn't exactly dislike it, but I didn't see what all of the fuss is about.  Once you get the hang of how much of the sauces and whatnot you add though... It's actually really good.  Maybe it's an acquired taste thing. 

Maybe I'm just desperately trying to fit in with a foodie culture I don't fully understand by forcing myself to like what everyone else seems to like, without realizing that nobody actually likes pho and everybody in this city is just trying to impress each other with their foodie-ness.

When you get to the real Vietnam, you find out how supersized everything is in America. The Pho Tai in Vietnam costs typically just about a dollar give or take about 3000 dong. It's served in a bowl way smaller than would be seen in America. On the other hand, the restaurants typically give you unlimited availability of basil, greens, sprouts, limes, jalapenos, and sauce. And it's filling in the quantity given. Like Seattle, it's available any time of the day, but the place in Saigon near where I stay during summers only serves it for breakfast or dinner, no lunch.

Eh, pho is okay. I did hate it for the longest time though. I was trying Vietnamese food the first time, and I was having a craving for red meat. So I'm looking over the menu and I see something that was translated to 'supreme beef pho'. My thought was 'oh, that must mean it has a lot of beef in it!' and ordered it to go.

I knew I'd done something wrong when I got home and opened my soup, and it was looking back at me.

supreme beef meant 'the WHOLE COW' apparently...

EvilEgg: I get where the author is coming from.  I have heard of pho, but I have never actually eaten it.  From the people who talk about it, I expect to emulate Meg Ryan in her famous diner scene if I ever get around to eating it.


I lived in a predominately Asian community for a long time. There was pho everywhere.  It's kinda "meh".  Better than the ramen or whatever people try to pass off as pho in non-Asian places, sure, but it's nothing I'd go out of my way to eat.  It's rice noodles in broth with herbs added, after all.

If I get pho and it's basically ramen noodles and spices, no big deal, I'll eat it and go about my business.  But when Thai food has jalapenos, Italian basil and plain ginger in it, I just can't eat it since I know a tiny part of me will die inside.  The gulf between good Thai food and bad is much, much wider than for good pho and bad pho. But then I'm an uncivilized heathen.

bdub77: Pho sounds like the name of a rapper. Pho Shur? Pho Rheal?


It's pronounced more like "fuh" than "foe", by the way.

It's not real pho unless it's made by someone who had to escape from South Vietnam after the fall of Saigon.

One of the great things about living in Northern VA in the 90s was great pho in every neighborhood.

I'm not looking it up because I'm guessing one exists.

exick: The only drawback of pho for me is the exorbitant amount of cilantro I have to deal with. Basil, ginger, fish sauce, broth, meat, noodles are all great. And then I get to the farking forest of cilantro. Gorrammit!


I can see how that would be irritating, especially for people that perceive cilantro as tasting like soap.  My favorite places for it give a bowl of broth and a plate with piles of noodles, meat, and the veggies.  Completely-customized soup.  Pho is the most humble of breakfast foods, and the humble shops let the customer do the work for ideal taste.
