Some seriously hurtful shit in this thread. Are you guys trying to piss me off  me on purpose? Some of that passive aggressive shit. GFY

But, if you move out of the NY area, you will realize how good it is.  The Chicago deep dish stuff is awful.  Its not real pizza.  But the thin crust sh*t they have in the midwest is even worse.  The

I hate the word foodie. Hate it with all my soul. It's a made-up word for people who don't have any real hobbies and want to act like they do something with their spare time that actually requires edu

When I was a kid my mom made tenderloin, mashed potatoes and spinach.  I didn't like it until I mixed it all together......and added yellow mustard.  :)  It's fantastic.  In fact, connecting the odds dots of spinach and mustard is one of mankind's under appreciated discoveries.

Pizza is subjective and I respect any man who cares enough to state his favorite. 

Pizza is simply lasagna with bread substituted for pasta.  In fact, Italian food has very little variety....it's some mix of a pasta/bread, sauce and then cheese.  When you're at an Italian restaurant and the waiter says, "Would you like the Baked Ziti or the Lasagna?" he's really just asking you what shape you want your food to be.  It's the same thing.  And don't tell me that the ricotta is the huge difference...adding ricotta is like turning a hamburger into a cheeseburger.

I think what you meant to say was, "What you've just said is....controversial.  Thanks for sticking to the spirit of the thread.  I hereby grant 1,000 reputation points."

Spirit of this thread sucks dog balls.

Well, sucking dog balls is definitely a controversial food opinion.

Personally as a person with the obesity I have to make low sodium choices so I avoid the sweaty ones but other than that I’m a fan.

The same can be said for Mexican food.

French merlot is outstanding. Not the jammy Napa crap. 
 

Pomerol and St Emilion are some of my favorites.

I agree, In my restaurant, everything outsells merlot.  It’s crazy.

My wife is Italian, half Sigi.  She makes this stuff all the time (extremely well, IMHO) and agrees with every word written above.  I've been hearing this for 30+ years.  It's why you will almost never find us at an Italian restaurant.

McDonalds should go **** themselves for switching the french fry oil from trans fat to canola oil.  I'll probably live to see another 10 losing seasons of Jets football without ever eating a good french fry again.  Mcbastards.

Best McDonlad's fries was when they still used beef tallow.  Never tasted the same after they switched to vegetable oil in 1992.

I want to know how the first person to drop an egg, looked at it and said "well, this looks delicious"

I can't look when people dip toast into a yolk. UGH, and soft boiled? There isn't a word to describe how horrible that looks and smells.

No joke, hit me up if you ever want/need any help with this.

Ahh that's really kind of you man. I think I've just about exhausted the available omelet varieties at this point :D

the kale thing has got to stop

 

 

Normally I don't care for kale; never disliked it but didn't go out of my way to eat it.

But I had two dishes in the last couple months that have swayed me: at Momofuku Noodle Bar in the East Village they sauteed kale with bacon fat, butter and finished it with breadcrubs. Holy fcking sh*t was it good.

And then at Faun in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn I had a kale, gorgonzola, pear salad that was out of this world. I find kale can be a great substitute for lettuce in certain salads, including caesar. It has more bite, texture, and flavor than a lot of lettuce.

You take it back right now pal.

He's not entirely wrong.  I like my bacon and eggs and will even put a couple slices on my burger from time to time but people have gone way overboard on the stuff.  All of those recipes that I see where they wrap the whole thing in bacon are just ridiculous.

Taco Bell's chicken quesadillas are better than almost every authentic quesadilla I've ever had. The zesty sauce and cheese blend is very tasty. I don't care that it's processed crap.

Great thread btw.

Chocolate Sauce instead of Spaghetti sauce. Try it. You'll thank me later.

Woah. 

That just blew my mind and as I'm thinking through it, I can see why it would be awesome. Might try that on one of the nights when we have a light salad for dinner. Pasta dessert. Might even through some cut up berries in there.

Sadly, here Wegmans bagels probably as good as any you can find in a shop. The big chains like Einstein’s and Chesapeake here make there money guessing correctly that most people here do t know what a good bagel taste like. 
 

Couple slightly marginal pizza places here. Nothing great or worth driving to. I’ve been making my own pizza at home for  Two decafes. My Dad bought me one of those pizza stones from the Pamper shelf and I can make a pretty flawless  thin  crust with it. I worked in a pizza parlor back in the day so I learned how to slap dough. Honestly, I look like I should make pizza fir a living.
