Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll – 1/26

I’ve got food on the brain this week, so this is a spin-off of Sara B’s Monday poll about what foods you’d have to be stranded on a desert island before you’d eat.  It’s also related to my recent discovery of new foods that are expanding my edible horizons.  The question is: What is a food (or foods) that you used to hate, or never tried because you thought you wouldn’t like it, and now you love?  My big one is avocado.  I always thought I would hate it until a friend made an avocado salad, which I ate to be polite. and it turns out is delicious! I also have recently introduced fresh edamame into my life and I recently tried hummus which I had always been opposed to but is actually not too bad.

So how about you? Anything you have totally changed your culinary tune about?

Lox! Every Christmas, my family had bagels and lox for breakfast and I would always abstain because, uh, GROSS. I recently started a new job where we get holiday gifts from clients, and one family sends a bunch of amazing New York deli stuff. One day, I was starving, so I tried a piece of lox and it was the tastiest, most heavenly mouthful I’ve ever encountered.

I realized later that, given that my favorite kind of sushi is the Philadelphia roll, I’ve kind of been eating lox for a while, but I don’t think it’s the same thing at all. Also, I refused to eat sushi until I was, like, 16, and now it’s one of my favorite foods, so that’s a toofer.

Fish! as a kid I hated fish but my family went out for seafood like once a week. I would always get a cheeseburger or popcorn shrimp. as a young adult I grew very fond of Fish and chips at the bar and Raw tuna (the on sushi I truly like)

But over the last year or so I have been eat other fish and enjoying it. I still think sushi is the best way to eat fish but broiled with some lemon pepper is also pretty awesome.
