What new food(s) have you tried recently and how was it?
Just in the past week or so:
papaya - hated it
champagne mango - loved it
Apple Cinnamon Cheerios - loved it
Ritter Sport, milk chocolate with butter biscuit - loved it
Hmm, recent road trip foods...
Pork tenderloin in Missouri, loved it
hot beef sandwich in somewheresville, IL - meh.
Chicago style pizza (Giordanno's in Great Lakes, IL) - tasty but I lived in CT/NY for years, so..
Strawberry pie (highly recc'd pie shop in Rolla, MO - GAH, don't want ever again. Didn't realize it was (huge, deliciously fresh) berries smothered in pink goo.
Just tried filet of beef tartare, which is something I would normally not even taste, and ended up loving it. It was excellently prepared and excellent quality ingredients, and I can't wait to try it again.
Also tried pork cracklin's, which were terrible, but I'm southern and don't believe this decidedly non-southern restaurant knew quite what they were shooting for. Maybe I'm wrong here, but I assumed they'd be a little chewy with a rich bacony/porky flavor, but instead I could only describe them as "ham biscotti". Crunchy, flavorless, yuck.
