bacon is a glorious meat, and all who disagree can suck my dick. :)

this is weird, but for me it's chicken. i just prefer beef and pork to chicken.

Chicken is definitely overrated. I almost never eat it. There are too many better meats/birds to eat

Duck,

If we're talking cuisine, i'd say French and even Italian.

Yeah. Typically, whenever something has an option for protein I never select chicken.

Turkey - can't eat that **** unless it's Thanksgiving

Cereal - some is okay, but most of it sucks balls...I'd rather have a hot breakfast than some soggy/sugary flakes

Truffles. Complete proof that just because something is hard to find, doesn't make it good. They're fine, just not as amazing as they're advertised and used.

i dunno man... shaved white truffles over a simple pasta with just an oil/garlic sauce is like heaven in your mouffff. but, yeah, the price for it is absurd.

Woah you've tried 95% of the wine out there? :p

The flavor is fine, I like it, but every time I have them all I think is "what the hell is all the hype about?". I just think its a case where the hype is far greater than the actual taste.

Haha no, though that might be fun. It just seems like all the qualities that are attributed to wine, and all the fancy serving gizmos, and in many cases the astronomically high prices for some bottles just screams "overrated."

The few times I've had high-priced wine, I've been unable to draw a distinction between similar "bottom shelf" varieties, though admittedly I don't have the best taste buds in the world...

Yeah I'm with ya. You have to stay away from the wine snobs and the attitude that there is a correctly good wine vs. one that is good TO YOU. Which is why I love watching guys like Gary Vaynerchuk (http://tv.winelibrary.com/2006/12/15/how-to-get-your-wine-palate-trained-episode-148/ )

It's only about what's good to you. There can be equally amazing and terrible wines at any pricepoint. One of my favorites of anything I've tried is a $16 bottle of Layer Cake Shiraz. It's better than any $60+ bottle I've ever had.

In my opinion caviar is obvious, its wet salt.....

I can't generalize a meat, although I prefer beef, because I make chicken a lot of ways and I think some of you saying chicken would cream your pants for. But I'll hi ahead and say thanksgiving aside turkey.

Cuisine as a whole? I'll say French... Your food isn't that good, your country isn't that good, and I've been to Paris french people are douches. I don't see why french people are so proud? Your women have hairy armpits:D

Speaking of great, cheap wine... i just got about 6 bottles of trader joe's famous "two buck chuck" series of reds and whites. God bless you, trader joes!

Trader Joe's is awesome, especially (but not just) for that. Only problem is it's "three buck chuck" in NJ and PA has state liquor stores, so TJs there don't sell alcohol...

i'm just glad we're finally getting some TJs down where i live... to get this recent haul of wine, my brother-in-law had to drive from boca raton to naples (a good couple hours), but they're set to open THREE stores (one in miami, one 10 mins from me in ft. lauderdale, and one in west palm) over the next year.

my heart rejoices... my liver does not.

Bacon, for sure.

At least around here, Taiwanese food. Even the spiciest stuff is has no heat and without heat its really bland.

Ice Cream. It's good, but far from my dessert of choice. I usually only eat it if it would be impolite not to.

Sugar Pasta Sauce. Everyone loves this crap. Everyone's preferred brands are loaded with as much sugar as tomato and they are just not good. Maybe I grew up with the real thing too long.

Soda. All of it. It all sucks. Besides some Root Beer and Ginger Ale. The rest sucks.

Deep fried stuff. Blah. It tastes fine but the feeling afterward is worse and lasts longer than the enjoyment of eating it.

Cereal. Some of it I like, but it is far from an end all meal.

In-N-Out Burger. It's not a very good burger. I don't get the hype.

Completely disagree. I could eat fried Oysters, fried Crawfish, fried okra, etc for every meal

Completely correct. It's just a fast food burger like any other place.

I guess it also depends on how it is fried. I've had some very good fried okra/zucchinis/calamari but I've also had stuff that isn't good.

:puke: I love TJ's for wine, but man that 2 buck chuck is some nasty stuff.

Out of all of them there was one decent white I liked, but mostly it was pretty bad.

TJ's does have some decent $2-4 bottle wines though. There's a Malbec that's like $2.99 that isn't so bad, for the price.

Lobsters were once so plentiful that they were eaten in bars and whatnot in cities like NYC. It was actually a poor man's dish

Personally I like snow crab (or even king) legs over lobster any day.

Best part of any crab is their fat.

In-N-****ing-Out.

And Olive Garden.


And (generally) bratwursts. Don't get me wrong, I looooove me a long, juicy sausage in my mouth, but I just don't care much for the bratwurst flavor.

Same here. The only time I really eat lobster is when I grill lobster tails for surf n turf nights

it really depends on the size and quality of both the lobster and crab... there are certain varieties that make each more preferable than the other.

all things being equal, though, it's hard to pass up a local favorite - FL stone crabs - or the absurdly rich and delicious crab roe/fat (which is not only amazing on its own, but takes your average broth or sauce and makes it ONE HUNDRED BAFILLION times tastier).

Yeah I don't mind a good lobster roll or bisque, but prefer the sweetness of snow crab legs.....or the spicey of Maryland crab.

Damn it we're gonna need a crab thread soon...
