There is a subtle brilliance to this article that’s not due to being written so well or being so right: it’s the spot on take-down of the current state of food-snobbery (“foodie-ism”) that could have only been written by a hardcore food snob themselves.
The list isn’t just outlandishly pointed statements, they’re well supported.
Here’s a taste:
- The hypocrisy of spending $20 on pasta you could have made at home yet complaining about expensive tacos or Thai food
- Tex-Mex is often better than authentic Mexican (Yes…Yes!)
- With appreciation for different greatly differing types, all wine pretty much tastes the same
They left off that the $0.99 cent slice has nearly ruined NY pizza but the only one I flat out disagree with is that restaurant tipping should end in the U.S. Try getting your water refilled let alone anything else you want during your meal in another country. It won’t happen.
