Meh for me is the sushi/sashimi at the local Chinese buffet place. It's so pretty, but no flavor. And the New Zealand green lipped mussels, meh.

Thanks for the memory of Timothy, DL. He was one of a kind. I actually think of him every time I use my bento box or eat sushi. It's amazing how someone can affect your life even though you never really met them (in person).

I'm with you. To make matters worse, the restaurant where I tried it served it with a raw quail egg on top. I can eat almost anything you put in front of me, but this dish made me gag.

I had heard all kinds of good about raw oysters. Meh. Doesn't gross me out, but kinda bland and the texture leaves plenty to be desired.

Now having it that way does make it sound tempting I must say, but it is still yukky on its own just boiled

Boiled? No, just steam, roast or lightly sauté.
