    You either love durian or you hate it - there's no middle ground with Durian.

    South East Asians love durians, but those that don't, hate it. Those who like it, love the smell, taste, sweetness, and fluffiness of the fruit. And those who don't, hate all those basically.

    Once you've eaten an actual unprocessed raw durian (not ice cream, not juice) and like it, you're hooked for life. If you don't like it, you'll also dislike the thing your entire life. :P

    Most people who like durians also prefer the whole ones with the spiky shell since it keeps the smell and fermentation of the juices inside just right - unlike the frozen ones. Once you've tasted the shelled ones you opened yourself, the frozen ones just don't come close at all.

    For those interested in trying out durian, it's better if you are the types of people who appreciate niche food like the nasty smelling cheese (limburger for one). It will taste alien since it doesn't smell nor taste like any fruit you've ever had so your best bet is to prepare eating durian like you're especting to eat natto, goat cheese, limburger, stilton, or marmite.
    Don't set your expectation to something like rambutan, lychee, peach, or any of those refreshing fruit.

    Interestingly, its not actually like Marmite but a Genetic thing. Most of the people who like it aren't those who appreciate the smell of rotting vegetable matter but actually taste a fairly sweet but water fruit, a bit like a sweeter watermelon apparently. Westerners for the most part lack this gene (but we win far the ability to process alcohol and tolerate diets higher in fat and salt which seems a fair trade) hence why we usually can't stand to even be in the same room as these things.

    This is also true of brussel sprouts. People who like them don't taste the horribly bitter thing that the rest of us do.

    I cannot handle bitter. Broccoli Rabe is putrid. Seriously, this shit...
    broccoli_rabe.jpg
    is fucking gross. This is partially why there are few beers I really enjoy, I pick up on bitter very easily.
    I've had durian ice cream before, found some of the taste quite enjoyable,.

    For more food related bizarrity, as the Red African Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) come up yet? Turns sour tastes sweet.

    For the longest time growing up, I never understood why I keep hearing how durian smells like that nastiest shit that ever shat out of a shit machine, because it only had a faint smell to me (a pleasant one, at that). Later one, I came to the conclusion that non-Asians are just flat-out defective when it comes to that fruit.

    Another great thing about fresh durian is that, in a pinch, you can attach that sucker to a chain and maul zombies with it.

    Given that there are plenty of asian countries with, 'hey, don't eat that here' durian rules, I don't think it's a 'non-asian' thing. You're probably just a weird exception, like the people who can't smell asparagus pee.

    Menu separation in Thai places is usually to keep people from ordering things that will kill them with heat.

    Chinese? To keep you from ordering chicken feet.

    Beets are fairly common in Iranian/Persian food. Not a core staple, but I'm not sure how they'd seem out of place with kebabs.

    If you are near a city, they should have an ethnic place where you can get all different styles of kebab and are quiet good and cheap. Hell I can problem name over a dozen off the top of my head in DC alone.

    I have no idea what the hell you're eating and I doubt the cook does either.

    Though most of the time to get a kebab here I have to go to a Mediterranean place.

    You obviously had no idea where to go in Chicago. There are plenty of great kebabs available in the more ethnic Indian and Middle Eastern neighborhoods, and at a handful of standout spots outside of the more concentrated locales.

    I'm also fortunate to have an Indian father-in-law who makes some killer kebabs of several varieties, and Indian mother-in-law who is a whiz with sauces, chutneys, and anything else you might like to have with a kebab :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Where did you eat in LA? Don't eat in Little Armenia, the best kebabs are in Glendale (Helena's and Carousel).

    LA's ethnic enclave labelling is stupid like that - the best Chinese isn't in Chinatown, the best Japanese isn't in Little Tokyo, etc. Only Koreatown earns its name.

    Some times you don't even need a joint, there's all sorts of crazy stuff turning up in trucks these days. Mmm... Korean BBQ tacos.

    Ok that phrase alone made my mouth water. I was just down in LA and at a hotel on the border of K-town. Was with some Chinese friends and mine, and they had a local friend who introduced me to Korean food and Korean BBQ for the first time (not a huge Korean community in my neck of the woods).

    I wanted to try the Korean pizza place after that experience, and now I just have one more thing to add to my list if I ever make it back down there. That and some good Mexican food. I never did stop to try some good Mexican food while I was down there :(.

    Korean food is good, but it requires a place with a lot of koreans or it gets toned down. <3 anandale and fallschurch

    oh I know. Every place we went to our local Korean friend got frowned at when they saw me.

    "Why you bring white people here?! First one come, then more. No good!"

    Not actually said, but I got that idea. Was fucking hilarious as far as I'm concerned.

    I have to concur with this. It is breakfast perfection.

    I meant towns, but same applies to food joints I guess. Whole portions of NoVA are either korean, vietnamese, mexican, peruvian, you know where to go for the eats.

    I gave up on the Tucker Max Message Board years ago, but I remain eternally grateful for having read this interaction there:


    Tucker: Dude---that thing looks disgusting. It has to be nasty, with the syrup shit in it. What is that?

    SlingBlade: I can only assume from your cavalier attitude that you have yet to partake of the wonderment that is the McGriddle. Let me enlighten you. What happens is the One True God grows them on trees in the Elysian Fields using a heretofore unused incantation. He then proceeds to magica them down to your local eatery where whatever Ghetto Bastard cook your McDonalds has rescued from welfare that week proceeds to wrap it in cellophane and pass it along to you, the fortunate consumer. You proceed to ingest this finery in the vain hope that your obviously overmatched taste buds can somehow grasp the delectable intricacies it is suddenly faced with. Is that egg? Why yes it is, and bacon too. But wait---they didn't add....yes they did, yes they did indeed. They added cheese. And then, then my friends, they wrapped it in a sumptuous pancake bun! As your taste buds try to process that amazing information, IT hits them....the syrup nugget. THE MOTHERFUCKING SYRUP NUGGET! It announces itself with a burst of confectionary grandiosity the likes of which your palate has never seen."

    Tucker: So you like them?

    SlingBlade: If you EVER speak ill of the McGriddle again I will personally force-feed you one while I fuck you in the butt using the wrapper as a condom and then donkey punch you when the infused syrup nuggets explode in your mouth."

    I think I'll stick with a bagel with feta and lox.

    The rest of you, I fucking hate you for the fact that I now have a blue dot on this god awful thread.

    Be careful with that shit, man. I know of some sketchy as shit truck that sells shrimp, and I'd never go there.

    Make sure you go to the Kogi truck, and not a knock-off. Signature is the tacos, but they also have Korean BBQ or kimchi quesadillas.
