I tried comming up with a witty title to this post.. hope it worked.

As I am getting older, I am starting to have more of an income to try out higher quality foods and places to eat more frequent. I tend to bring a tag along or two ; most of which are not use to anything other than bar foods or chains.

However, it seems that the "best of the best" meals always seem to taste "off" ... Even to me in some cases. I would always be frustrated with my friends that ask for ketchup on thier well done steak.. Or will not order anythign but General tso's chicken... Now, the I feel like that person, I am having a hard time adjusting my palate to the higher quality places .

The first time I had a Grass Feed Steak, I could not believe the difference. It just the last 3 meals I had, were at places that are very very well respected in my area and I had thier top dishes .. and was not impressed at all....:-(

I guess my question is, does it take some time to get use to higher quality foods?? Or adjusting you palate for new takes on flavor???
