Hi my chowhound friends,
What are some food that most people love but you feel you really enjoy as much as they do? For me, chickpeas, lentils, and tamales are some that I can think of. The first two were food that I never even encountered until I came to the States. While most of my friends love them, and they will go out their ways to find really good falafels or lentil soups, put chickpeas and lentils in their salad, I just never really like them that much. I mean, I have had what they called the best falafel in Manhattan and I am sure there are even better ones out there, but I don't think I will ever go crazy about them (and I love fried food)
Same for tamales. I have friends that crave for them, but I never feel that I love them. I don't dislike them, but they will not be my choice if other alternatives are availalble.
I just think in these cases my personal taste doesn't agree with others, because most people love them like I love sushi or very good pasta.
So what about you? What are some of the food that are very commmonly loved by your friends but you don't?
