Where’s the NSFW version? It is Friday after all.
It’s pizza for this question. But it’s got to be good pizza. I had a certain hut’s pizza last week and I’d rather go dumpster diving then try that again.

Shepherds Pie!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Pizza, tacos, cheeseburgers, cake, cookies, Chinese-American food….. basically everything that’s unhealthy.

@WillWorkForChocolate Try tacos with ground turkey. Really lean and you won’t notice any difference, other than no fat.

<—- nibbles on @cookieman

@Adirondackwannabe Trust me, I can tell the difference. I’ve tried ground turkey in tacos, spaghetti, my self-created Dorito Pie, and a few other things. I can taste it every time. Also, my kids could tell a difference, and they had no idea I had used turkey. “This spaghetti tastes nasty, Mom, did you do something different?”

Pizza, cheese, Mexican food (especially enchiladas), sushi, oysters and softshell crab, barbecue, and that’s only a small sampling. However… I’ve been watching my diet pretty carefully for the past year and have only occasionally eaten any of these things.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate I can’t tell the difference, but I spice the hell out of the turkey as I’m cooking it. It probably wouldn’t work in your other dishes.

Hot pastrami sandwich at Katz’s Deli in the Lower East side.

I love “stick to your ribs” foods like chili, stew and biscuits with gravy.

ETpro's avatar

Sorry about that. We had a power failure just as I posted the first version. I’ll have to ask to have this pushed to editing so I can fix the link. For now, it’s

cazzie's avatar

I don’t eat. or at least, I have trained myself to eat as little as possible, so food, in any form is not desirable.

thorninmud's avatar

Chicago stuffed pizza, Chipotle veggie fajitas burritos (w/guacamole).

This answer will also apply to the NSFW version.

josie's avatar

It isn’t good for me, so I don’t eat it often.
But the answer is pizza, with pepperoni and mushrooms.

ucme's avatar

Sausages, I love me some bangers & mash.

KNOWITALL's avatar

Sweets are my downfall, like @cazzie I restrict myself for that reason.

Otherwise, I’ll go with teriyaki stir-fry’s as one of my faves. Honey, ginger, lite soy, mmmmm.

Om nom nom… chocolate chips cookies…

Judi's avatar

Anything with olive oil makes my eyes roll in the back of my head. And garlic helps too.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@Judi ...and fresh garlic, I’m so with you.

@ETpro You are the only Jelly who has to mark questions (SFW) LOL. I am partial to buttered Scottish morning rolls with corned beef.

thorninmud's avatar

Hey @Kardamom, why don’t you just tell us what you don’t love to eat, that way you can get on with your life.

Kardamom's avatar

Oh my goodness, where do I start?

Mexican food: salsas of many kinds, cheese enchiladas, quesadillas smothered with guacamole and sour cream, really good refried beans and frijoles de olla, burritos and nachos (and yes, even the nachos that you get at the ball game oozing in bright orange cheese, dotted with pickled jalapeño slices).

Comfort Foods: macaroni and cheese, both the baked kind and Kraft from a box, broccoli-cheese soup, homemade biscuits with butter and honey, potato-cheese soup, salt and vinegar kettle-style potato chips, peanut butter cookies, standard French fries, curly fries (especially the ones served at Arby’s) beer battered onion rings, glazed donuts, deviled eggs, potato salad, homemade buttermilk ranch dressing and chili.

Indian Food: almost any kind of chutney from mint, to tamarind, to coconut, to mango, then there’s aloo gobi (spicy cauliflower and potato stew) and malai kofta (cheese dumplings in creamy tomato gravy) and saag paneer (spinach and Indian cheese stew) and mango lassi (a drink made with yogurt, mangoes, rosewater and cardamom).

Asian Food: hot and sour soup, tom kha soup, pad see ew, fresh spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce, fried spring rolls with sweet and sour chili sauce, egg drop soup, spicy tofu lettuce wraps (like they serve at P.F. Chang’s) vegetable tempura, tamago and many kinds of kimchi.

Italian Food: thin crust wood fired pizza (from too many restaurants to name), especially plain cheese, or with mushrooms, cheese and mushroom ravioli, garlic bread, pasta primavera, fresh bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, minestrone soup, and calzones filled with ricotta, broccoli, mushrooms and basil, and linguini with pesto sauce.

Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food: hummus, tabouli, manakeesh, falafel, greek yogurt and loukoumades (Greek donut balls dipped in honey and rolled in chopped nuts).

Pickled Stuff: spicy Mexican-style pickled carrots, sauerkraut, red pickled onions, really good crunchy dill pickles, pickled garlic, gajar ka achar (Indian-style hot, spicy pickled carrots) and this pickled purple cabbage salad from Clearman’s Northwood Inn

Desserts: gingerbread (both cake and cookies) crème brulée, boysenberry pie, pumpkin pie, brownies with walnuts (un-frosted!) lemon bundt cake with lemon glaze, Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream, malt balls and German chocolate cake (not other kinds of chocolate cake) and kheer (Indian-style rice pudding).

Cheese: It would be easier to list the cheeses that I don’t like, but some of my favorites are Havarti, provolone, really sharp cheddar, both fresh and aged mozzarella, Trader Joe’s White Stilton with Cranberries, port wine cheese balls rolled in nuts, spreadable Pub Cheese, Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges, cottage cheese, feta cheese, Emmental, Cotija, queso fresco, queso blanco, Roquefort, and brie. I also like the powdered cheese from Kraft macaroni and cheese!

But still people ask me, “If you’re a vegetarian, what do you eat???”

Kardamom's avatar

@ETpro talking about food is more fun, than listening to the unfolding news in Boston : (

janbb's avatar

Really good French fries but they havwe to be really good.

YARNLADY's avatar

Bacon, sausage, fried onions, fried potatoes, well done but still juicy t-bone steak, loaded baked potato

cookieman's avatar

@ragingloli: Oooh, this great Thai place I know makes a fabulous Siam Duck.

Love me some duck.

KNOWITALL's avatar

And curry’s, my God, the delicious curries of Thailand with the coconut milk.

Plucky's avatar

I knew @Kardamom would have the most extensive list!

For naughty dinner foods, I love pizza, pasta (omg I love pasta), enchiladas, tacos, taco salad, nachos, poutine, mushroom fried rice, antijitos….. All vegetarian of course. Mmmm, bad food.

Tater tots

KNOWITALL's avatar

@woodcutter You are an Okie….lol, that is so funny.

Mama_Cakes's avatar

Golden Grahams

woodcutter's avatar

@KNOWITALL Funny? How so? Tots are rare elsewhere? We have Sonic Drive In’s here where I get most of my tots. The rest of their menu gives me the atomic heartburn but their tots are good.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar


KNOWITALL's avatar

@woodcutter Hardly anyone eats tots anymore, starchy fatty greasy…lol The sweet potato tots are disgusting at our Sonics, blah. I messaged you a recipe…hahahaha

woodcutter's avatar

@KNOWITALL This is ‘Murica, so I can’t believe the people here are worried about “starchy fatty greasy”. It’s what holds our heart valves together.

DominicX's avatar

Chile verde burritos, triple mousse cake, Szechuan-style tofu, California rolls. Four of my all-time favorite foods :)

Sunny2's avatar

Three things roll off the tip of my tongue when asked this question. The three foods I’ve never had so much of that I didn’t want them again for a while, are: prawns; cottage cheese; and chocolate. There may be others, but I’d have to search for them.

nofurbelowsbatgirl's avatar

@Kardamom I want to be that kind of vegetarian. Would you consider yourself an ovo-lacto vegan, ovo vegan or just a lacto vegan? Somedays I would like to eat eggs and milk and cheese, I remember that they taste good, but I remember that I don’t like how they got to the table :(

I am so picky about it I will just have a salad please, with strawberries, walnuts and lots of veggies.

I am obsessive when it comes to food meaning it has to not have any type of dairy and it must not be made by animals free run or otherwise so people often tell me I have anorexic like behavior because I won’t consume packaged foods either. I think I am healthy. I am a strict vegan.

Oh and I just remembered my community is starting this fruit tree thing where we are replanting fruit trees from abandoned orchards around the city and we will be able to pick fruit from them for free whenever or something like that, anyway I will be visiting that frequently! Home grown fruit, for free, yummy!

jonsblond's avatar

Just about any kind of cheese…..and milkshakes.

ETpro's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe You can actually find good pizza dumpster diving. Sometimes still clean and in the original box. Not so with the stuff from Pizza The Hut.

@Leanne1986 Please. I love cheese. But watching my cholesterol, I wish it would return the favor.

@rojo Ah yes, Shepherd’s Pie. Like American Chicken or Beef pot pie, only better.

@WillWorkForChocolate Take heart, dear. At least dark chocolate is heart healthy.

@WillWorkForChocolate The next time they complain, “This spaghetti tastes nasty, Mom, did you do something different?” just answer truthfully, Yeah, I made it with stuff that won’t kill you while you’re still young. Want to go back to the deadly ingredients?

@cookieman :-)

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room Sushi and Sashimi are healthy choices. Not for your budget, perhaps, but for your body. Oysters are fine. Depending on what’s barbecued and how, that can be a healthy choice as well.

@Rarebear I know prepared meats are bad, but I’m with you. Love a good hot pastrami sandwich.

@keobooks Stick to your ribs food works for me.

@cazzie They do say hunger is the greatest appetizer.

@thorninmud For me it’s chipotle chicken.

@josie For me it’s pizza with the works. Bell peppers, onions, black olives, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms… The more the merrier.

@ucme I did too when I was over there and could get them. That was before I had any idea what was and wasn’t healthy eating, though.

@KNOWITALL THe stir fry does sound very good.

@Seek_Kolinahr Coogie!!!

@Judi & @KNOWITALL Fresh garlic you say. Perhaps I need to refer you to one of the NSFW answers.

@marinelife As long as you go easy on the steak, that’s darned healthy fare.

@nailpolishfanatic I’ll leave you to the KFC. Too much salt for me. But the rest sounds delicious.

Kardamom's avatar

@nofurbelowsbatgirl I am a lacto ovo vegetarian. I try to be very mindful of where my food comes from, but I’m not always perfect (like at a restaurant, sometimes you can’t be sure, but I always ask questions when I’m concerned).

I love Trader Joe’s because they are very mindful of listing animal rennet, or vegetable rennet, on their cheeses. And they’re pretty good about labeling other products as being vegetarian. I’m a label reader to the Nth degree. I can easily spend 2 hours in the grocery store, because I always read the labels.

Although I am not a vegan, I don’t buy products made from leather or fur. That can be a pain in the neck, like a few weeks ago, I needed to buy a new purse. I like that material, some type of nylon like windbreakers are made of, but I was only finding leather bags, in the size and style that I wanted. I went 6 months, carrying my ratty old bag, until I found a nylon bag that I liked.

Even though I am a vegetarian, and that limits my options, I’m about the least picky eater that I know. So as long as there is something I can eat, I’m OK with that.

nofurbelowsbatgirl's avatar

@Kardamom I hear you. I totally get it. Thanks for sharing :)

ETpro's avatar

@flutherother I guess I’m the only Jelly currently obsessed with questions that might fit either context depending on how you interpret them. What really cemented making this a genre was this question asked quite innocently, never dreaming it might lead to the dark side. When Jellies started answering saying they couldn’t comment because it was not marked NSFW, that spawned the idea of asking bi questions on Fridays, with perfectly regular or particularly ribald answers depending on how you parsed the language of the question.

ETpro's avatar

^^ Oh, and I forgot to mention that in that first instance, it was too late to put the [SFW] all-clear symbol on the tame version, but I did as my Jelly Friends asked and posted it again with the NSFW spin.
