evolving palate

i just noticed that my palate has evolved. i'm not talking about food/cuisine per se. but the stuff i enjoy eating. i am listing them down.

1. peanuts - i used to hate peanuts when i was younger then suddenly got addicted to them.

2. california maki/sushi - thanks to b who introduced me to teriyaki boy's california maki. totally changed my japanese eating habits.

3. sashimi - with my bro and j around...you will just envy them on how they savor okuya's bento box which includes sashimi. i still don't order sashimi when i'm in a japanese resto but i eat it when i order the bento box hehe.

4. crabs and shrimps - it started with j's buttered crabs. i have become an expert in buttered and sweet and chili seafoods (prawns and crabs)

5. dark chocolate - my recent change of heart. i bought a box of assorted lindt and i started loving the dark kind. i got several dark choco gifts last christmas and i suddenly enjoyed them.

i've only gotten used to these food items recently, a couple of years ago, except for the peanuts which became my brain food back in college.


  1. my palate has evolved into trying out salads.. different salad dressings, different cheeses, Learining to appreciate wine...

  2. i guess our palates are really dynamic that we eventually enjoy food that we thought we never would
