Have You Tried It??

7591058936_a57f5c62a8_o     Don’t you hate it when people or your friends judge food without trying it? I think the answer is obvious, yes. Me my self hate it specially when that friend tried it and almost ate your plate, and suddenly when you ask them lets grab a bite from that place and the answer is no I hate it, what about last time!!! One other thing I hate is saying no to things they never tried, how can you judge this cuisine or that without trying it?

I remember my first visit to Indonesia and that was a first visit to one of the southern east Asian countries for work, they brought us this scary looking fruit with kind of a bad smell. when I saw it immediately remembered a show on TV called ” BIZARRE FOODS” and the host of that program is “Andrew Zimmern” who traveled the world and ate everything on the planet. When he tried that fruit “Durian” he said no I cannot, imagine a food critic saying that. What I had in mind that definitely I wouldn’t like it at all, but what happened was different. The smell wasn’t that bad, but still hesitating to have a bite. I did try it and its not that bad at all, could try it again actually.

What I’m saying is specially in food there isn’t a good or bad, it depends on your taste either you like it or not its something debatable. If you like it its ok but if you don’t you can always choose a better word or a phrase like I don’t prefer it I would rather have something else.  You cannot judge a book from its cover, at least give it try…

    For me some times I don’t give it a try just from the way it looks and the ingredients I can decide if I wanna eat it or not. Btw the program Bizarre food made don’t wanna eat for a week because the host eat very disgusting things I felt like wanna throw up whan I watch it.

    1. rabi80 says:

      Well I think you should at least try it before judging it even if doesn’t look that nice..lol

      1. reemkulaib says:

        yeah you right. I will try the food first then judge it.
