Try durian!

I love kimchi. There are many different types, maybe yours was too fermented. Fresh kimchi is, IMO, refreshing and delicious.

I do not eat at fast food restaurants much (maybe 4 times a year at most), but I think those are my biggest letdown. The pictures look great on the menu, but never have I seen any of their food look even remotely like the pictures or commercials.

Lately... it's been sushi. It's been a while since I've had the good stuff.

I think my biggest letdown food is coffee.

While it is brewing nothing smells as appetizing (OK, OK, maybe cooking bacon), but for some reason what's in the cup never seems to live up to the smell.

I have the same reaction to baking bread, auntdot. Not all loaves are equal, but they all smell luscious while they are still in the oven.

No way. I am quite convinced that (to my tastes) kimchi is just utterly horrid.

For me it would have to be desserts as well.
They never seem to be as good as you hoped, or by the end of the meal you've eaten so much and get a stomachache because you dared to eat the delicious-looking dessert.

I think the fact that I'm taking Hoodia now is a testament that I've never been let down by food. It's been a love affair since that first bowl of macaroni.

True True True! Coffee smells absolutely delicious while brewing, but then tastes so-so when drinking, although I do love coffee...
