I had a friend tell me mustard is a superior condiment to ketchup in every situation.
I tried to prove him wrong, but I couldn't. Is he right?
Definitely look up the recipe. If you want, throw a fried egg and crumbled bacon on top too. There are tons of variations as it is really just about the sauce. And I just use Shiner Bock. For a simple britbong meal I have yet to feel the need to start trying different ale and cheese combinations.

OP, it's like hot sauce (sour tabasco vs pure heat crystal). Modern ketchups contain a bigger ratio of vinegar to retard spoilage to prevent bad press, and to counter the vinegar, contains more sugar too! Bad versions of canned tomatoes and bad spaghetti sauce contain more sugar too.
If you have homemade ketchup, or buy something other than the two major brands, you'll probably enjoy it more. Think using chili sauce or banana ketchup, something foreign from the caribbean, or homemade, for a little condiment "ohhhh yum" with those fries, or to top a meatloaf.
The issue with picking on people who like baby-sweet food on the internet, like ketchup, is that it's too sweet. Adult tastes tend to mature towards like bitter or sour foods, thinks more spicy vs bland, and hot!, and mustard is sharp, piquant, and yes, more useful to more recipes. It's also better on sausages and hot dogs.
What I can't STAND culturally, is the ketchup on eggs abuse I see among latins (mostly). I just think why not chop a tomato and add it to the eggs in the first place, or roast some whole tomatoes on the side. Having vinegar and sugar on eggs (sweet n sour) turns me off completely, and when I witness this, it's usually slathered on profusely. I feel the same way about hot sauce on eggs. I'll enjoy some cholula, valentina, crystal on a runny egg yolk, fried egg sandwich, but hell no on Tabasco.

So essentially what you are saying here is you have the same shit taste as everyone else, but you feel that your brand of red vinegar garbage makes you a True Gastronome
