Ever since I live on my own and on a budget, it's the same shitty, cheap stuff every week for me. It's been ages since I tried something new, mostly because I fear that I don't like it and waste precious monies.

Tried fresh Miso instead of instant for breakfast today. As suggested, added green onions, Tofu, and some chicken. Sooooo much better than instant. Way different taste. Now I just wonder why I never tried it before.

I'm eating and drinking everything they don't sell in the UK while I have the chance. By and large it's terrible. What the hell is taffy? And why does Hersheys have a lingering aftertaste of vomit? Taco Bell is a great success though.

Cooked sugar that's then aerated to have billions of teeny-tiny bubbles so that it's chewy and not crunchy.

Been there done that. Both the chocolate and the peanut butter was incredibly inferior. Would not eat again. However, America, I will admit your gummy sweets and fizzy juice - although not as good as Asian shit - is generally better than the stuff at home. Now if only you'd cut it out with the unneccessary colourings and other quite frankly alarming additives.

venison was good, but im a terrible schnitzel cook

What kind did you get? Ive had a few kinds and some are way better than others. Laffy taffy and other faux-taffies in particular are awful and plastic-like rather than light and chewy.

Best americandies I can recommend would be paydays, dove chocolate, mr. goodbar, and a bunch of shit like merci and lindor truffles that you can probably get all over the world anyway. Pez and sixlets are delicious but kind of trashy.

Also what region of the US are you in?

What kind of taffy did you get? Unless you've had real saltwater taffy, you're really missing out.

Last time I was in Tasmania I had duck for the first time. I honestly don't know how I got through 30+ years of life with out eating duck at least once, but there you go. The duck itself was cooked in ginger and soy sauce, served on a bed of steamed bok choy, brocolini, and green beans. My intestines threw a little party in celebration of all the fibrous greens.

Turned out quite good! Just enough heat to wake up the tongue without overpowering the other flavors, good texture, and the smell of the cooking peppers, onions, and celery had the kitchen smelling delightful for hours.

those bring back sweet memories of the five-hour bus rides from Athens to Sparta that are actually pretty fun because they stop every hour at some little place in the mountains where you can get those little ekmeks and souvlakis and strong Greek coffee and sit outside and smell the mountain flowers and olives and oh, my heart.

Ate me some chopped up fried Alligator earlier this week. Dipped it in cajun mayo and washed it down with a pitcher of Bud. Washed the bud down with shots of tequila. Chased the tequila with bourbon. It was a good night and good eating.
>> No. 5146

Had some for the first time last night as well. I was disappointed because I thought it would come in literal tail form, not popcorn chicken :/

Also, maybe it was the way mine was cooked, but it tasted like a mix of catfish and Chik-fil-a nuggets.

I can't go back to normal breakfast cereals. Goddamn.

yeah, reptiles tend to have that kind of half fish half chicken flavor. Frog's legs are very similar but gator has a chewiness like fried clams.

I wish I could get it in some kind of steak form so I can plain grill it and get a good sense of what the meat is really like without all that flavored breading.

Hershey's tastes bad because it is bad. Literally. It has 'gone bad'.

The guy who started the company already had 2 tanked candy companies under his belt when he decided to go into chocolate. When he first started up he was unable to get an exact step by step recipe for what he wanted to make (milk chocolate) and so he just dicked around, resulting in some of his ingredients going 'off'.

Why people liked it I have no idea, but it was successful enough that they still produce the same spoiled flavor today through a process called lipolysis, which is a chemically induced breakdown of the fat in the milk. Many other companies now do the same because Americans who don't know any better think that's how milk chocolate is supposed to taste.

True story. Look it up.

There's a new Chinese restaurant in town, and they have a dish called 'Scholar's Duck'.
So delicious.
The backbone of the dish is a sauce which I can't begin to properly describe. It's a subtle flavor, not overly sweet or tangy, and rather fragrant. It also seems to be something exclusive to this restaurant, unless it's better-known by another name, as Googling only turns up the menu for the restaurant.

That was different. Like... a beefy poultry. And it wasn't as greasy as I was afraid of, but still, pretty dang greasy. I wouldn't mind trying it again, though. With suitable sides this time. (This was a really last minute thing; my aunt had a goose she couldn't eat anymore for some reason and we HAD to have it today.)
>> No. 5574
Goose can be AMAZING, but it can also be incredibly horrid. And a lot of that is actually dependant on the bird itself.
We needed years to find someone who could provide us a consistent quality bird for christmas every year. But yeah, it is pretty greasy (that's what makes it taste so good). Not even near duck levels, though.

i made/tried pumpkin pie for the first time the other day. wasn't amazing, but im sure someone else could do a better job

i forgot to list of things i tried in america. namely smoked ribs and pulled pork.

Back on topic, I ate goat for the first time while I was in Malaysia. Goat curry, to be more precise. It was rather delicious.

Long version: I went out to tea with Mrs Shrike's dad to a nasi kandar somewhere in KL chinatown (don't ask where, my brain is still trying to make sense of KL roads). He ordered roti telur and a goat curry, I ordered nasi goreng ayam, thinking I'd be getting some delicious, spicy chicken rice. Basically the nasi goreng ayam I'm used to in Melbourne, but better. What happened next requires a little elaboration…

In Australia, once a town become large enough to warrant restaurants, it will rapidly acquire a Chinese restaurant. Whether it's good or bad, serving Cantonese cuisene or Sichuan, it will have a sign that says "CHINESE RESTAURANT." And it will always serve a dish called "Special Fried Rice." In the better of these restaurants, Special Fried Rice will consist of yesterdays (or earlier todays) rice, stir fried with some roast pork or Chinese sausage, egg, and fresh green vegetables. In the worst, it will be freshly steamed rice, barely fried in a pan with ham, peas, chunks of carrot the size of small continents, and bits of corn. And it will taste exactly like steamed rice with ham, peas, chunks of carrot and corn.

This, as it turns out, is what I had ordered at the nasi kandar, with the exception that instead of ham, I had what appeared to be a leg of crumbed (breaded) chicken, and not a particularly meaty or well-seasoned one, that had been mutilated with a meat cleaver and chucked into the wok.

Needless to say, I was a little disappointed. So Mrs Shrike's Dad shared his goat curry with me, which tasted awesome, and in which I could identify the remains of things like curry leaves and fenugreek seeds.

So yeah. Goat. It beats shitty fried rice hands down.
