Which fast food joint has the best burger? Protip: it isn't In-N-Out.
What is the worst experience you ever had when eating out?
Worst experience I had was going to a small family restaurant owned by some asian couple, they had a "roast beef dinner" for like $8.
I ordered it, paid, and watched as the owner took out a frozen dinner (the kind sold in supermarkets) and put it into the microwave. Then they dumped it onto a plate and served it to me.
I almost stood up and demanded a refund.
> go to a restaurant
>Order mac and cheese
> its mushy
> literally has zero cheese in it
> tastes like pasta and hot milk
> have to pay $14 plus tip
I would have sent it back if i was alone but i have an image to maintain.
In general, how much do men care about a woman's cooking skills, really?
Depends on where you grow up and how you were raised.
I care a decent amount because cooking is my hobby.
I grew up in a small town of 3000 people, it is still the culture to have the woman stay home and be the housekeeper. Cooking is pretty important part of that gender role.
Moving away I know a lot of women who have never cooked in their lives, and they arent pushing dudes away because of it.
I care, but it's also cute to have a gf that knows nothing about cooking so you can teach her stuff and cook for her.
In my experience women who can't cook always have dogshit parents with not being able to cook just being the tip of the iceberg of all the other vital life skills that they were never taught. On the opposite end of the spectrum women who are excellent cooks usually come from better families and are more mature well rounded individuals overall.
Hey guys there's allways a thread discussing japanese food here, but japanese breakfast is hardly mentioned. Do any of you know what the average japanese eat for breakfast? Do you know any recipes? Thanks
Those are Vietnamese god damn it Robin Williams even made a whole movie about it.
I really need to start eating healthy, I hate the way my body looks.
What are some foods I can make/buy that are healthy, but are also similar to tasty unhealthy food?
I hate vegetables and chicken (though I'm more inclined to try chicken), and I love basically any type of meat, but I don't eat pig meat.
What is some weird shit you frequently consumed as a child? I used to make chocolate milk and pile the chocolate powder 5 inches high then eat with a spoon. I also used to drink glasses full of straight cordial and eat those powered juice mix drinks straight from their bags. I'm surprised I don't have diabetes today.
What is the spiciest food you've ever eaten?
So I'm reading Anthony Bourdain's kitchen confidential right now.
Basically he portrays the restaurant world as the domain of drug-addled misfits who can't fit in in regular society.
Pretty much, he says it's something you would only get into if you were crazy.
The view he presents is almost darkly romantic at the same time; he presents it as a 'sex, drugs and rock and roll' type of world, with lots of sin and debauchery, cameraderie, etc... The image that eventually comes across is kind of beautiful in a way, even if it's...

Yeah, hes looking at it through rose colored glasses, but hes not wrong at all. When I worked Line, the guys next to me were more family than anything else. We did some odd shit, but luckily no drugs other than nicotine, caffeine and alcohol. Im not str8 edge at all but hard drugs and even pot have no place in a real kitchen. Druggos are just below fatties and women in the list of people you don't want on your crew.
I work for an upscale restaurant right now and I can agree with that.
The work can be traumatic, especially if you're messing up and you have a bad service.
It can keep you up at night and it tortures you but you want to go back to work and redeem yourself. its hard to put into words but many people have a version of PTSD.
They pursue different outlets like drugs and partying to cope
I feel so fucking ripped off. These tastes NOTHING like biscuits and gravy. They tastes almost exactly like sour cream and onion. Such bullshit.
What are some chip flavors that really taste like they're advertised?
How profitable would you say a 24 hour donut shop is?
Are they heresy?
Ok, who seriously who the fuck does not like onions? My gf refuses to eat anything that had onions in it. It's really fucking annoying because I use them a lot when I cook. Sometimes I think about just making something with onions in it and not telling her to see if she notices
I dislike eating onions raw like in salads and shit but in cooking they are essential.
I can't imagine making any sort of stew or soup without them.
Also caramelized onions on burgers are GOAT.
make yourself something delicious with onions and microwave some frozen mac and cheese for her. see if she wants a bite of what you're having. honestly, i feel like half of the food i make starts with sauteing garlic and onions.
>goes to a restaurant
>orders something that could have easily been made at home
Why do people do this? For example, ordering spaghetti at a restaurant that serves much more complex pastas and other dishes, or paying $6 for a hot dog when you could have easily made 12 for the same price. Why do people pay for bibimbap? It's literally rice and vegetables for like $12 a bowl.
When I go out, I like to get shit that takes all day and a fuckton of special ingredients and equipment to make, like ramen or barbecue or dim sum or woodfire pizza. Why bother otherwise?
Literally everything you can order at a restaurant can be more easily made at home.
If it makes your autism start raging this hard, just stop going out to eat and make everything yourself instead.
What do you like your breakfast sandwich on?
After 2 months of steady progress I just broke my diet. I think I consumed 6000 kcal today and it's not even time for dinner yet.
Hold me /ck/. What do you do when stuff like this happens to you? What's the most you ever ate in a day?
Is it ok to eat possum or is it shitty meat?
I've never had it, but my understanding is that it's shitty meat. I know a lot of rednecks who will eat all manner of game (and roadkill, if it's fresh) but they won't touch possum or raccoon.
Hey guys just got a job as a pizza delivery driver. So I need tips on being the best I can be. I already have the "that'll be $19.99 plus tip sir" down.
Any other suggestions?
Fucking pay attention to any delivery instructions
I don't tip the assholes who ignore my request of not coming to my door and having my dog go ballistic at midnight. It's right there, have the courtesy to read it.
What do you all do when your feet hurt after a shift? I'm a pretty big guy so all this weight is starting to add up after days without a break, any suggestions?
We have kitchen shoe threads from time to time. Some people here work in kitchens, and this sounds like an industry thread.
It's more on topic than tobacco threads, or vaping threads like we had earlier today, in any case.
Is umami real or is it just made-up anime bullshit?
It's real, and it's delicious. Pic related, use it when I'm too lazy to add umami in other ways.
Why is everyone so obsessed with the McRib? I've never had one, but they look kinda shitty. What's exactly the deal with them?
Is the hype real?
My uncle's grandson doesn't eat vegetables in any capacity and will only eat breaded chicken
How can I sneak them into his meal?
Pic related - his face when he sees anything that isn't a chicken nugget or cheeseless chicken parm
Punch him in the face and tell him to eat it or he's getting another one. Adults are too pussy to raise their kids right anymore, he'll probably be a gay ballerina hooker in 10 years
It happened again a few days ago, I saw the aftermath. Everyone in the building heard the scream. This isn't the first time this happened at the restaurant I work at, and everyone in food prep is Iron Chef-tier with knives.
What is it about this tool that fucks up the noobs so reliably? Is it because they always think they can get that last slice in before it shaves off their fingers? I have one at home and I've never even come close to an incident. I mean they come with guards ffs.
Serious question, why do blacks and other minorities say that "white" food is bland when the vast majority of restaurants with stars are operated by white chefs?
Most "white" people originated from northern Europe. Cold climate = relatively few herbs/spices and certainly no hot peppers. So the traditional foods of most "white" people would be fairly bland compared to the cuisine for equatorial regions.
>>restaurants with stars
The world of high-end restaurants has very little to do with what the average person eats. It's not relevant to what most people eat.
Is being a professional cook really as shitty as they say?
Seriously considering to become a trainee since I am shit at everything else.
Enjoy working with mexicans, third world refugees, and meth heads. Also enjoy not being able to enjoy eating out anymore because you've seen how filthy and disgusting most kitchens are, and enjoy catching herpes from fucking that cute waitress that later turned out to be a psycho bitch with a pill addiction.
If you like to cook, get a real job that affords you enough money to eat high quality dishes.
What is your favourite comfort food? /ck/
Simple, cozy food that makes you well fed and slightly sleepy?
Mine is fish pie.
I just made loads. And it's halfway ready.
Cod fillet, some smoked mackerel, prawns, peas and sweetcorn.
Bechemel sauce, well seasoned and herbs.
Placed into a deep baking dish, topped with a layer of mashed potato,
Dried breadcrumbs on top of that for crispiness.
Baked for 20 mins on low and 20 mins on medium to high.
Rest for 3 mins.
Does brief high heat or sustained low heat make the best fried egg?
>go out to restaurant with like 4-5 friends
>none of them want to order appetizers, I'm hungry so I do
>appetizer gets here, each of my friends ask for a "bite"
>after 5 people take a bite half the appetizer is gone
>I still have to pay for all of it
What the fuck do I do in a situation like this? Make them each give me a dollar for their "bite"? Tell them all to fuck off they can't...

Burgers for breakfast
Fuck burger king, hungry jacks is heaps better
post how you're doing, what you've been up to, what you've learned.
I'm genuinely interested in any of that.
(btw im the faggot that always brings up klonopin)
I've had my ins and outs, but now I'm back to drinking a 12er a night. It's better than the self-loathing of trying to constantly judge myself trying to cut down or quit, but I'm sure it's not good for me.
2 bottles of cheap wine a night for the last 5 years,
eat too much to keep the stomach from getting upset,
now I'm a fat ass,
feels bad man
I could sober up if I really wanted to.
Went 10 consecutive days dry in December w/o any physical withdrawal.
Why do you pretend to like dark chocolate?
