Who eats this shit?
These strange salads that are smothered in cheese, mayonnaise, and/or ranch dressing. It just looks so disgusting
I can't eat it. Every time I put it in my mouth it makes me gag. Even the smell.
When I have a salad it's just spinach or romaine, croutons, freshly shredded parmesan and zesty olive oil n vinegar dressing.
OP here. I'm white and I concur with you, I think it's "white people food" too. I've had relatives bring that type of food to family gatherings and I've never touched it.
They also make "Spinach Dip," which sounds good at face value, spinach is good, but it's mainly ranch dressing and sour cream with a little spinach mixed in and you're expected to eat it with shit like "Ruffles," which are the worst chips to ever be invented.
Used to work in a Safeway deli, not only are they grossly covered in mayo, but they sit there for days on end. The most we'd do with them is turn them over so the old stuff was on top, and then put some fresh made on top of that.
Only the grossest of gross fat hover round customers would buy them and then bitch that it was over priced. Which, it is, but like that's what you get for shopping at fucking safeway.
That being said, having worked in a deli, shit doesn't move. I think it largely depends on the store, but the cold case doesn't do as well as hot case or deli staples.
>why keep making them then?
>I want egg salad
>...well while I'm here I better get a pound of hard salami, a pound of lorraine swiss. oh look they have fried chicken!
>I want braunschweiger
>better get some hot food while I'm here..don't feel liking cooking tonight and the braunschweiger is for lunch
>cole slaw will go nicely with this
>I love my local [Kroger, Publix, Wal-Mart, Fred Meyer, etc.] they have everything I need!
That's pretty much it. If Kroger doesn't offer the stuff Publix and Wal-Mart has, then they could suffer. People want convenience. Stores want to sell vertically and horizontally, and sell lots of shit.
>you have never had hot spinach dip with cheese or crab?
>nigger if you are white you must be too poor to eat out then because it is literally in every restaurant
I had a brief moment where an image of your immediate environment flashed in my mind, and then I was overcome with nausea and I pushed that picture somewhere that it can't ever hurt me again
I haven't seen "spinach dip" in over 20 years, when I went to visit some previously unknown distant relatives who managed to get stranded in the rural midwest some 90 years ago. Those kinds of restaurants don't exist in normal places. The scenario you described is about as likely as someone ordering marshmallow and mandarin orange salad.
Please stay in your containment state, flyover scum.
I live in Calfiornia it is literally in every chain restaurant like Outback
inb4 you are too good to go to chains and if your friends invite you you decline we know you are "too good" for friends
In after, you mean. And I know very few people who would willingly eat at a place like outback. Yesterday I had lunch at a michelin starred restaurant. inb4 I'm making up lies on the internet, I realize that not spreading herpes in a bowl of disgusting microwaved green communal slop is makes you "too poor to eat" in your world, so I don't even know why I'm arguing with you.
Would that be a bad thing, not to have outback? We don't have walmart, I suppose that idea fills you with panic.
But there are outbacks here. Just that no one goes to them except I dunno. People like you, I guess, who can't tell garbage from wholesome food.
No, luckily I live in a place with a healthy economy and I don't have to go to the coal scrip store to buy stuff with my coal scrip
Why the fuck would you want to go to wal mart anyway? I went to one once and it was full of unimaginably obese people being depressing.
>I wonder how boring life is when not even one of your friends would eat at a place like outback
I do not know one person who would eat at a place like Outback. It's just not cost effective if you live in a place with better options. Figure dinner with drinks and an appetizer at Outback is about $20 per person, and the food sucks. Last night I took a group of six out to dinner in Chinatown. We had duck, two pork dishes, a seafood dish and two vegetable dishes with rice and beers. When I picked up the bill it was $20 per person. There's no reason to pay that kind of money for shit tier food if you live in a place where places offering really good stuff for the same price are everywhere. It'd be foolish.
>I sure as fuck would when I leave to visit people
Last time I left the city to visit people outside NYC - in the midwest, actually - I was eating gua bao, pork sweetbreads, paksiw na pata, and jajangmyeon
Just because you choose to live in filth doesn't make it in any way necessary, or something to be proud of
>thai restaurant in the midwest
yeah but you were likely literally ingesting fecal matter?
>acting pretentious when all you have nothing better to do then try to act better than people on a cartoon image board
The scary thing is I'm pretty sure you're serious
>I would never eat at Outback in NYC if I lived in there but I sure as fuck would when I leave to visit people
I'm not a snob about it. If I were visiting people and they wanted to go to Outback I go along with it. But I'd never seek out a chain restaurant if there were other options available. Especially one that costs the same as places where I'm used to getting good food. I've been to an Outback, and what they serve is terrible to me. Same goes for Applebee's, TGIFriday's and the like. Terrible food at $20 a pop galls me. If chains were the only option I'd just opt for whatever is cheapest, so I didn't feel ripped off. A bean burrito at Taco Bell is just as terrible as a meal at Outback, but much cheaper. If I'm going to eat terrible food I'd prefer to spend as little as possible doing so.
I have in-laws in the Midwest and the South. When I visit them we're either cooking at home or going out to mom and pop places. Because if you hit the supermarket with a budget of about $20 per person you can come home and whip up a fucking feast. I'm more than happy to lend a hand in the kitchen toward that end. I'd do that 100x over before I'd suggest going out to a place like Outback.
having worked in chains yes they are most chain mangers go apeshit over cleanliness to try to get promotion when everything else about the other mangers and restaurants he is competing with are the same
some hipster faggot thai place in the midwest will give no fucks
>asian restaurant owners
I do agree that the midwest is in general a third world shithole, but what does that have to do with the kitchens in people's private homes?
Also being the mop guy at Outback isn't "working in health inspections"
>No, it's just normal food. What you eat is not normal.
This is the mentality is antithetical to enjoying good food. That's why good food can be very hard to find in places where people think like this. "Normal" is a pretty shit aesthetic.
I'm also positive that private homes are even worse than the licenced restaurants I help shut down. Tell granny Ling Ling I'm sorry but, no there isn't an acceptable amount of rat feces on prep surfaces in the US.
You forgot to call me a hipster again, Outback mop guy.
>"Normal" is a pretty shit aesthetic.
No, being infested with horrible chain restaurants is shit aesthetic. Normal food that doesn't come from microwave freezer bags is in fact a good aesthetic.
>Tell granny Ling Ling I'm sorry but, no there isn't an acceptable amount of rat feces on prep surfaces in the US.
If you are so afraid that you'd rather choke down a shit tier steak at Outback than take a risk on a local place likely to have some flavor I'd say you're eating what you deserve.
I'm busy waiting for my housemade fair trade organic heirloom eggs to finish steaming and then after loading up on energy-giving protein I'm going to go unicycle over to my edwardian style boxing studio for some training
>I can cook better than you.
I would be surprised if that were the case, but I'm sure as fuck not getting into a pissing contest on 4chan. I'm sure whatever you make out of what you buy at WalMart is absolutely delicious.
There is one at 3rd and 56th. I don't think anyone who lives in the city goes there. Kind of like the Olive Garden in Times Square, its for the tourists.
New Yorkers aren't better people but we know we can get better food for cheaper elsewhere. Just about anywhere else really.
>New Yorkers aren't better people but we know we can get better food for cheaper elsewhere. Just about anywhere else really.
Holy fuck this thread. Why do people shame others for having taste on a cooking image board? There are multiple people calling someone a hipster faggot for prefering hole-in-the-walls to shitty chain restaurants, where your food is literally microwaved.
Why do I share my chinese cartoon cooking forum with this scum
>Who eats this shit?
>These strange salads that are smothered in cheese, mayonnaise, and/or ranch dressing. It just looks so disgusting
Yfw. Your Supermarket has actual Antipasti instead of shit like this.
>There are multiple people calling someone a hipster faggot for prefering hole-in-the-walls to shitty chain restaurants,
Supposed hipster here. I don't really like the "hole in the wall" thing. It's the internet era, and good places don't stay secret for long.
If a place is dingy and there are barely any customers outside of the ethnicity in question, it's probably barely scraping by for good reason.
But I appreciate the show of support.
>believing women are human beings = you hate white men
Remember before the internet, when men didn't form these self-pitying emotional support groups like /pol/, and convince themselves that they were somehow being oppressed because women wouldn't sleep with them?
Yeah, I suppose you don't.
>believing women are human beings = you hate white men
Let's go back to your original post.
>Oh boy here come the angry angsty kissless white NEETs
Do you see that? You assumed they're white and male. I went through a cute little spat of racism when I was younger and guess what, I'm not white nor male. You feminists turn everything into a race/sex issue when there is none. As for reading the rest of your post, I will not do that because I'm sure it's just more wrong assumptions. Good day, ma'am.
Can't really say I'm a fan. Haven't tried much though so there might be something in there.
Also what the fuck happened to this thread?
>Also what the fuck happened to this thread?
Do you have some form of autism? Or are you really just that fucking stupid? Try really, really hard, read my post a few times, and maybe you'll understand it and also understand how literally retarded your response was.
Newsflash: feminism in real life is a mainstream belief system. Whatever notions about feminism you picked up from youtube comments and facebook arguments are about as related to feminism as "jet fuel can't melt steel beams" is related to international politics.
I believe they might be a male of at least partial asian descent, thus increasing there feminine qualities and estrogen levels to that of a female while possessing a stumpy excuse for a penis.
Just another abomination like Eliot Rodger with deep seated identity issues and hatred for the world.
I work at the deli at safeway in a shit little concrete flyover town.
I know Exactly what kind of person eats that stuff.
I have never in my life bought any of that from the supermarket deli. It doesn't even look good. Not to mention that those dishes are super easy/cheap to make - $5/lb is a big mark up. Then again, I don't eat any of that but maybe once or twice a year, anyway, excluding the occasional chicken salad or rare egg salad for when I'm super poor. And I spice it up - none of that bland deli shit.
tl;dr it's pleb-tier quality at a marked up price.
Classic picnic staples:
Some sort of sandwich
maybe fried chicken and ribs if you're black
Things that belong in the trash can:
any kind of salad that is just mayo + literally anything
Nigger in my 24 years I've been eating out at least once a week the last eight, sometimes have weeks of eating out nearly fulltime, and I've never seen something called Spinach Dip. Yuropoor maybe, but it sure as shit doesn't sound like a fine dining experience and I haven't been to a lot of dives when I was in the US.
Eating thai food is generally a bad idea in places where there aren't that many thai people to start off with. I wouldn't eat tex-mex in Europe and I'd avoid eating thai in the midwest. Even in New York most "thai" restaurants are bad and are actually owned by Chinese or Filipinos who aren't giving you a real taste of the cuisine.
cold mayonnaise based salads, and salads with cheese, are fucking killer you charlatans
if you feel superior for only eating salads with vinaigrette you are a stupid hypocrite exhibiting the dunning-kruger effect
>tfw living in bumfuck Alabama
>tfw for some reason there's a great authentic thai place nearby run by thais
Who the fuck gave you geography lessons? Not a single item on that list is thai. One of the dishes I mentioned was eaten at a place that most critics would put in the "mediterranean" category.
I'll grab a small container of 'Seafood Salad' with the Surimi/immitation crab in it. Macaroni salad is ok at barbeques/social lunches etc, but even then potato salad is better in almost all ways.
The rest seems pretty gross, especially sweet dishes that are just pieces of canned fruit in buttloads of whipped cream.
Used to have this.. fuck I almost said hamburger helper.. it was something like that though. Everything in a box except the ranch. A thing of seasoning, pasta, mix in a cup or two of ranch, would feast on that for two days
oh shit found it. Sometimes we add in a can of tuna. I try to make it whenever we have spghetti or steak as well
I order stuff like that from the deli every time I'm hosting a cookout. It's freshly made that morning and it saves me a ton of time. Everyone loves it. I haven't had a complaint in 20 years.
