I’m not a food snob

Posted by seoulfully on August 22nd, 2008

Not really.  I can taste the difference between quality food and mass produced things.  Eating crap food usually gives me all sorts of ills.  I don’t begrudge chains.  Yeah food is mediocre and overly sweet, salty, fat filled.  But that’s also why they are generically good.  Maybe things don’t taste awesome, but they taste good in a comfortable way.  So I still go to chains and such.  But this Esquire piece reviewing Outback Steak house (the review ends saying it’s not bad), has the following passage:

The clientele was much like you’d find in any mall food court: freaking enormous. Roll after roll of body fat stuffed into XXL T-shirts and baggy blue jeans. But everyone seemed to be having a grand old time, scarfing platters of cheese fries and baby-back ribs, their piggy children stuffing themselves with Boomerang Cheese Burgers from the “Joey Menu.” (emphasis added)

That passage ALONE makes me want to shun Outback and mall food courts and chain, Americana, “‘s” restaurants (e.g. Applebee’s, TGIFriday’s, etc.).  Despite the “grand old time” it strikes me as this is the exact kind of person I DON’T want to be.  (Nevermind that I almost am already.)

Will I still go to chain places?  Yes.  Will I do it with the same frequency I do now (rarely)?  Nope.

  • @kpereira the cropped look is nice man. ain’t no thing, it grows back, though being a TV personality i suppose a bigger deal #
  • @sidneylo yeah i might. i get no signal a ton, then full 3g, etc. for actual phone signal 2.0 was the best for me. but who knows why #
  • OH MOTHERFUCKING CRAP, just bought 2 busy sync licenses by accident #
  • student loan payment just went up this month.. sigh #
  • @ayn honestly it was one of those idiot things, i dont know how it got 2 in the number of license part. #
  • picking songs to back video is not an easy task #
  • doing stuff in imovie makes me want to use iphoto (i dont save jpgs only raw, jpgs to flickr). i guess jobs wins #
  • @holydee boo. mac ftw! actually while i prefer macs, i’m not a windows hater. and i don’t even pc game #
  • i really want that kodak zi6, but i may just wait until my next trip or something, no need to pick it up for random vids of the doggie. #
  • oh, and that flip video waterproof case, while having a stupid design flaw, is great. gotten much use out of it this summer #
  • the lack of willpower i’m displaying lately is simply stunning #

  • i want to buy a bodum double walled glass beaker just to hold the coffee i make, i don’t want the actual full on french press #
  • failing miserably in my attempt to rate my music as it plays. i guess i’ll auto-rate it. though it is very imperfect #
  • @danbenjamin i’m the same way with a buddy of mine. never fails, one buys, the other follows. tvs, macs, ipods, movies, etc #
  • @danbenjamin for me and buddy, overlapping interests + vocal enthusiasm = dual purchases #
  • I just had to do a hard reset (not turn off and on, just hold home and power til it shut off) to get 3g to work on my iPhone #
  • ANOTHER hard reset to try to fix 3g. going to do a restore today when i get home #
  • why do so many women love lotion with such STRONG, overpowering scents? #
  • just did a restore of iphone and now itunes keeps hanging when i try to sync. oh well #
  • @kpereira please say you are going to sigourney in alien, natalie in v for vendetta her. she’s hot as is, but would be awesome #
  • anyone know how to delete synced mail accts from itunes (extra email addys in info pane of iphone in itunes) #
  • Trying to eat my bodyweight in sushi. #
