    • I came here to say exactly this.

      It is the most delicious pile of salt, grease, and starch with cheese. God bless you, Canada.

  • ‘Sting

    Japanese Curry. Looks like vomit, taste like heaven.

  • Poutine is a good one. I was going to say Doubles: http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236x/d9/b1/c3/d9b1c3de1b76cbf27fa162b3165b6ff7.jpg

      That’s not food. That’s science fiction.

  • FlamingAtheist

    Sweet potato or pumpkin oatmeal. Looks like cat vomit, tastes like a pie party for breakfast.

    If I had never seen scrambled eggs before, I don’t think there would be any way I would be able to screw up the courage to try them.

  • Skin a baked sweet potato, then dump a cup of chili on top. Looks like dog food / vomit / shit, tastes like heaven.

    Cow’s milk. Really, just like the scrambled eggs comment above if I hadn’t been drinking it my whole life there’s no way I’d start now. “Here, drink this white fluid I just squeezed from a cow’s utter.”

  • Bacopa

    Raw oysters on the half shell. I grew up eating the bounty of the Gulf of Mexico, but inlanders think raw oysters are a burden to be swallowed whole. Hell no, chew them to release the delights of the sea.

    I grew up eating coquinas and other clams raw right off the beach at San Luis pass.

    Tapioca pudding

    Being French, I could go for the easy answer : snails. Of course, you really just taste the garlic butter, but I love it.

    However, I am not sure I can say that food can be disgusted looking and tasteful at the same time. Either I already know the taste and I can’t dissociate it from the look, or I don’t but I have already tasted too many different types of food to judge.

    So for me, the most disgusting food is more linked to its source (like brain for example which I only tried once but do not wish to taste again) but not it’s look.

    I grew up in a Reform Jewish family, so we ate matzo brei during Passover. Looked disgusting, but can be good either savory or sweet.

  • Hummus made with pink beans. It looks like dried cat vomit.

    Also – matzoh brei is so damn nasty and tastes as bad as it looks. GROSS. Most Passover foods are nasty as hell. It’s the reason I always hated the hell out of that holiday.

  • Cornjob

    The burritos as BIG AS YOUR HEAD at Taco & Burrito Express next door to the Kingston Mines in Chicago. At 3 in the morning, after a night of live blues, these bad boys may not look like they’ll hold together, but they’re ALWAYS good. {Insert Homer Simpson drool here.}

  • Leon Trollsky

    Whole lobster.

    Imagine how hungry was the first person who tried eating a giant water spider that could snip off his fingers.

  • camille

    Guacamole. Looks like it came out of a diaper, but tastes like butter.

  • Ethopian food is like taking 10 different baby’s dirty diapers and serving them on a platter.
