DISCUSSION

I freely admit that I am absolutely the opposite of a "foodie". Give me a burger and fries, or steak and potatoes, over any of this, at any time.

So, most of these dishes just make me cringe, if not outright feeling nauseated by them. I just don't understand the strange things that people like to eat and the exorbitant amounts that they will pay to eat them.
