Why people go to Steak Houses? - Page 7

post #91 of 147
It seems like you are either extremely picky as Brian says (nice thing to say) or you are ignorant about food (mean thing to say). Either way, it's funny that you blame the corporations and imply that (most) people don't have good taste the same can be said about you.

Short answer is that the OP is a tough one to figure out in any setting. I quote Phil (Joel_Cairo) from another thread:

"This is only slightly less weird than the time you [Dkzzzz] linked to Kenneth Cole chelseas at $62, arguing that they were better than RM Williams (Which make you vomit, IIRC) or the time you said you'd been in the Cole Haan store and found their shoes to be the equal of John Lobb. You are an odd duck."

Given the source, I knew it wouldn't take too long to find the usual "whining about corporate America" root at the base of yet another shrill rant.

Let me clarify; I said that KC Chelsea are better looking , more stylish than R.M. Williams. RMWs are in fact the ugliest boots I saw people go ga-ga about.
I also said that Made in England shoes, recently surfaced at Cole Haan store are indeed equal to Lobb or any other British shoes maker. I actually think Lobb makes a lot of overpriced ugly-boats, poorly finished to boot.

Yes man, I must be some crazy conspiracy theorist.

After all, all our food comes from local farms that grow everything in real fields, full of real soil.
And popularity of those delicious snacks, chain food restaurants and refreshing drinks are part of our cultural heritage that we brought with us from our home-countries.

P.S. Schools in US are starting to ban Soda vending-machines from their premises is part of Castro’s plot to bankrupt Coca-Cola.

One can always count on dkzzz to write something more inane than the previous inane thing he wrote. Always beating his own world record!

What, you didn't know that lasagne, pizza, ribs, and Memphis BBQ were all invented in the Frito-Lay test kitchens in 1972?

I can enjoy Penne-Aarabiatta (properly prepared) or thin-pounded French steak with pan-roasted potatoes, not French-fries. If I am really hungry I can succumb to Viennese Schnitzel or Veal Parm. I usually enjoy steak salads.
I hate lasagna just as much as pizza (notice similarity).
I like Middle Eastern shish-kebob or lamb Pilaf with dry fruits.
I like rhubarb/strawberry pie on a layered dough. I like thing open-face bitter-lemon pie. I like variations of Napoleon cake.
I like many middle-eastern sweets - I don't like gummy-bears or M&Ms.
I like profiterole filled with whipped cream and roasted hazelnuts, but I don't like pumpkin muffin or peanut-butter-jello sandwich on wonder bread.
I like a lot of foods. I just don't like food-related products and tasteless vegetables and fruits that American supermarket is full of.
What corporations have done with American tastes is deplorable.

This sounds like something Dr. Evil would say. Do you make meat helmets in the Spring?

And I thought I wrote inane posts. This is ridiculous.
To eat like you want to eat would take an inordinate amount of time and money.
Sounds like you need to move out of the country, maybe to somewhere without corporations. Somalia is probably nice in the winter.

Soups! I forgot about soups( definitely a poor-man's food), but they could be delicious if made by a good cook.
I don't mean those semi-liquid porridge-like things in a can. I mean real soups, I love them.

And just to annoy people: I really like French crepes with Osetra caviar and sour cream.

I have tasted it in a local restaurant in Florence (properly prepared) and I've eaten it at Vinny-Testas (Italian chain, not properly prepared).

I am neither, I am just observant.
