I never get sick of ramen, just saying.

  1. I like that list overall, but agree with ramen. I'd be more than happy if the ramen trend continues.

    And bring on the butterscotch desserts!! Fuck quinoa.

      Mmm, butterscotch. <3 I'm making a butterscotch pie instead of pumpkin for the impending holiday. LOVE that stuff.

    2. Mostly agree but big disagree about brunch!

      Is there a reason why cupcakes wasn't on there? Or am I behind on what's behind?

        Cupcakes should definitely be on the overrated list.

        1. re: Phaedrus

          Also cupcake "shots." Also cronuts. Also fauxnuts for the cronut intolerant.

      2. I wouldn't really say that barbecue is overrated. Some people take it way too seriously (same with chili), but that doesn't make it not awesome.

            Everything can be overrated, but BBQ is not -- not at this time. It is underrated in my opinion.

            1. re: Firegoat

              Agree but BBQ sauce can be overrated.

            2. :(

              I am not sick of Ramen and Barbecue. Otherwise, I agree with the list.
