Is it overrated? I don't hear people saying how wonderful it is.

Or did you mean "something I don't like"?

It's the creme dela meme of seafood from what I've heard, just tried some. It's a solid 7, definitely enjoyable, but people trump this shit up to be the second coming of seafood jesus.

caesar salad.

it's just doesn't taste good.

i think people just like like it 'cause some guy comes out and does this elaborate table-side preparation. it's fun to watch.

Oysters and champagne for sure. Wannabe sophisticated individuals pretend to love this

No, that's lobster, which is actually overrated. In my experience people do not rave en masse about abalone.

>>
>>7062558
I hate caesar salad 99% of the time, but that's because nobody knows how to make it right. One time I went to some pub in Virginia about 10 years ago that had a legit chef as the gimmick, I don't know how that guy did it but his caesar salad was out of this world. It's just really hard to do justice I guess.

How are you even supposed to eat that?
>>
>>7062566
pretty much any high end steak house still has table side caesar salad. Why don't you tell us what it's like being poor?
>>
>>7062563
nigger you can get lobster at a titty bar these days, the point is abalone is pretty expensive and not turbo common, you can't even legally catch this shit yourself. people say it's awesome. I don't know why you think they don't.
>>
>>7062585

Where I am from it's very common and anyone living by the ocean will have eaten it / regularly eat it.

Truffles just aren't that great

Truffles are fantastic they're just not worth it. The smell of freshly grated truffle is indescribably amazing. And then it's gone like in a minute.

I like oysters especially with a little hot sauce.

Sorry charlie they're fantastic either raw on the half shell, fried, or in dressing/stuffing.

I prefer them grilled with and served with some clarified butter.

I swear, I've tried oysters on three different occasions, and each time it was okay in flavor, but the grit and the texture get my pretty bad - even when they're fried.
>>
>>7062989
Feel this.

I'm from Maryland and I don't even like oysters. I spent three hours shucking and eating them, though, because I didn't want to tell PROUD MURLINDERS that I wasn't diggin it

And I fucking love Caesar salad.

Basically anything that is hyped but doesn't taste any better than the normal shit you eat.

Well pizza has a fine balance to it, you have rich salty cheese, acidic tomato sauce, spicy chili flakes, nice crisp cured meats, and roasted vegetables.

Its incredibly versatile, cheap, easily made with the right equipment in large quality sustained quantities, makes for good leftovers, and its easy to control how much of a portion you want. Not so hungry? 2 slices, hungry? 4 slices ect.

To find something as versatile, easy and delicious is hard to come by, and unlike a lot of fattier foods pizza doesn't leave you feeling like a bag of shit after you eat it.

Of course there is shitty pizza, most american chains like pizza hut or dominoes or any chain really kind of just sucks donkey cock, but if you judge food by american chain standards you are pretty head fucked anyway and your opinion should be completely disregarded(not that im saying this about you, but if it is true then yeah, sorry).

I get some stuff is over rated but that doesn't mean its bad at all and not enjoyable.
think about when you get a wiff of fresh bread or roast chicken or when you're surprised by an unassuming dish when you weren't expecting much.

expectation means alot.

but, yeah abalone is not my thing. Its mostly used dried with dried scallops and one other thing i can't remember in traditionally chinese cooking.

it's delicious

Do not prefer them. I can eat them but only a few at a time.
>>
>>7062563
I'm in NZ, and I literally can go for a 30 minute swim just down the road and get enough for 10 people. Abalone really doesn't carry the status here that it has in the EU and US. I rate it a solid 10/10 for deliciousness though. Cooked on the BBQ with garlic butter or braised in tomato and peppers, it's fucking amazing.
>>
>>7063108
Bacon is most def on top of the overrated-list.
I love it, but internet-plebs claim it to be manna from heaven.

This is what I ate 2 days or so ago, it's bacon, peanut butter and banana.
Helped kill Elvis, so I had to try. Quite alright actually.

it might be pretty to look at but in reality it's overpriced and as bland as fuck.

Not many people like to admit it though!

Nah a lot of people hate oysters and I can understand it. I personally love them prepared almost any way but the dislike makes sense.
>>
>>7062948
you're not the only one. p
lobster,oysters and truffels are all overrated, although truffles and lobster are actually good but still overrated.
oysters are mediocre at best, i've tried a few different types of oysters and none of them were that good

I mean seriously, if it was a delicacy reserved for the affluent throughout history do you think there would be A FUCKING FOOD CHAIN DEVOTED TO IT.
>>
>>7062921
what is this used for? I figure its a lighter sour cream?
>>
>>7062948
if you order an oyster appy and get like a half dozen for a table of four or five that's cool. everyone gets to have a little. but to eat like 5-6 of them to yourself is kinda gross, raw. I love oyster rockafeller.
>>
>>7066837

it's a heavier sour cream actually
>>
>>7063874
>not living in a country so plentiful with lobster that giant ones washed up on the beach regularly before superior mechanized fishing techniques decimated their population.
>>
>>7066837
it's better than sour cream for finishing sauces since it doesn't curdle as easily, taste is slightly different too
>>
>>7064706
>Grilled veggies.
>Blini with sour cream and caviar
>foie gras
>lobster steamed in white wine

Dude I like Japanese food but this video isn't exactly the best example.

Nabe
Saury
Sashimi
Matsutake mushrooms

Much better examples.
>>
>>7066854
american lobster is shit compared to european lobsters, that's why it's cheaper.

britbongs export their lobster to mainland europe while they eat crappy canadian lobster because bongs don't know better.

americans didn't even figure out that you have to cook them alive until the 1920ies

there's french lobster recipes from the 1700s that are similar to todays dishes in preparation
