Revive the old "Least favourite homeland foods" topic

 Share

54 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This was an old topic started by UncaRustus, which went into hundreds of pages.

So, I'll start with mine (South Indian).

My least favourite foods from this category are pulikootu (made with channa dal and heavy amounts of tamarind) and coconut chutney (generally used as a condiment for dosais and iddlys but sometimes also for puris or pongal). Hate both with a passion (and the coconut chutney has NO redeeming value nutritionally; I can remember my mum trying to use "tradition" as its selling point--dumb approach, as there are some traditions which should have been thrown away).

Kanafah... ick.

What is it?? :D

Oh. Guess I should've elaborated. :lol: Kanafah is a very popular Middle Eastern dessert, made from a soft cheese covered in nuts and a sticky sweet syrup. A "normal" serving covers almost an entire dinner plate. It's so rich and so hideously sweet that I can only eat about 2 or 3 bites before I want to puke. But they absolutely LOVE it in Palestine and Jordan.

Rumor has it that a number of Germans eat stuff made from lungs, kidneys, stomach and brains. Whatever those dishes might be, it makes me ill to think that anyone could actually eat foods prepared with any of those items.

lol yea i've seen these jello like sausages made with those things.. and of course sausages are full of guts..

and actually.. cow brains are delicious.. in Mexico u can eat brain tacos, and spaguetti with garlic-sauteed brains, delicious.. kidneys are tasty fried,.. lungs, i dunno havent ate them and stomach, its used in a very popular dish called Menudo (all stomach guts, from, well the various stomachs of the cow lol)

oh yeah.. stuff I dont like from my adopted land holland. Drops.. i hate drops, they taste so awful.. :crying:

Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).
