What can you (or do you) eat every day? - Page 3

post #61 of 69

I'm not sure I eat anything every day beyond obvious things like water. Flour and egg in some form probably, but not because I wanted something wheaty or eggy. They're just in so many things. 

 

I could eat:

Cheese

Bacon (and most any other smoked/cured item)

Sausage

Chinese food (soups, dumplings...)

Shrimp

Halibut

crab

Garlic (in something--always a great seasoning)

Chocolate

I wouldn't walk into Carnegie Deli even if you paid me.  Not only because it's an expensive tourist trap but because I'm sickened by the sight of so much meat on a sandwich.  To me, a good sandwich is made of up good fresh ingredients, it's not about how tall it is and how much meat you can stuff in there.  This might have something to do with being from Europe I don't know. Tall burgers and tall sandwiches are a real pet peeve.  On occasion when I have to go to a diner (yuck) and I order a grilled cheese I very clearly state that I want 2 slices of cheese and 1 slice of ham, no more than that!

Carnegie makes their own meats. I'm not sure how much fresher you want than that.. but i won't argue with you about how much the quality of service, and perhaps of food have plummeted, which is why I myself mentioned it in between commas. i haven't been there in quite some time, but the carnegie os yesteryear will continue to be my dream pastrami sandwich.

 

 

I don't mind monster burgers so long as it's tender, juicy, and flavorful. and with cold cuts as long as they slice the meat super thin. If I'm going to pay top dollar for a sandwich, I want my money's worth. ykwim? JH is known and advertised as the home of the 7 oz. burger. If you don't like big burgers, why did you have one there? I don't mean it in a snarky way, I mean it in a seriously curious way.. it says it right in the front cover of the menu.

 

I understand you have your own preference, but to go as far as to say their burgers suck when they have pretty good reviews across the board is just odd and a bit unfair to them. They don't have perfect reviews, no restaurant does, not even the best, but a lot of the reviewers agree they have amazing burgers. Most of the reviewers who rated JH poorly didn't even have the burger, and I can't attest for the rest of the menu, since I'm just talking about their burger and milkshake.

I agree, being from Europe is perhaps a factor in why you don't appreciate those types of burgers. Most Americans I know like their burgers big and juicy. I don't think I've ever met anyone who turned a burger down because it was too big. If I can wrap my mouth around it, it's the perfect size. lol :lol:

Like I said, to me a good sandwich is about fresh ingredients rather than how tall it can be. I can't attest to how fresh the meat is, only that the sight of it does not entice me. Can't help that, nor can I explain it. However, communal bowls of pickles doesn't conjure up freshness either.

I've been to JH many times, I even liked the burgers there at one time but then I had better burgers and as my taste has evolved I just go with it. When you're young, poor, hung over and with your hot boyfriend you don't question the burgers. I've moved on that's all. Ahh to be young and eat burgers with abandon! Now every calorie counts and if I eat a burger which is not often I want to enjoy it. Same thing with any food. Now I don't even put bacon on my burgers. I don't like it enough to do it.

If I said that the burgers suck then I'm only referring to my own opinion. I don't mind if anyone else likes them it's just that you put out such nice beautiful food that it struck me as surprising that you like those places.

The American fascination with big food is interesting. Maybe it's a male thing? Women aren't interested in finding out whether or not something fits in our mouth.

I don't know.. there are plenty women who can eat more than men. Thin women too. I know when I go out with my husband who is 6 feet tall and weighs 210 pounds, I can put him to shame, and I'm only 5'2 and weigh 115.

 

I posted my favorite comfort foods. Sometimes you grow up or around certain types of foods that conjure up good memories, and make you feel good inside. I actually forgot to add deep fried spam to the list, which many people find to be absolutely repulsive, but if you're going to ask what kinds of foods can you eat everyday getting bored, those are the foods I will post, however, if you were to ask, "what's your favorite restaurant?" or "what's the best meal you ever had"? I would certainly had given a different answer.
 

Don't mind me saying that I find it a bit rude to start a thread asking people what foods they could eat everyday without worries, and then to turn around and insult the restaurants and foods they choose as "comfort food". It's actually quite obviously uncouth. It seems I should've run my list past you first for approval...

Well that's not very nice. Here we are having a conversation about actual restaurants and then you go and call me rude. I never said anyone could describe foods they could eat every day "without worries." And this was never about comfort food specifically. And I never said the burgers were dry. And instead of noticing the compliment I paid to your lovely food you call me rude. And here I was just coming back to report on my impromptu visit to JH tonight since I got a mad hankering for a burger quite suddenly.

Come on,  Kou Kou, don't you think you were being a bit harsh?  Your thread's opening title does seem wide open.

My apologies everyone if my posts came out as harsh, it is not my intent to ever be rude, I just like talking about food.  My dislike of beet juice and tall sandwiches has no bearing on how I feel about the people who eat them.  Even if you like Chicago style pizza.

"Chicagp Pizza" is one(1) of the finest culinary creations ever presented on Earth. I spent five(5) years of my life defending foolish people's right to have any contrary opinion to that.
