What's the Most Traumatizing Experience You've Had With Food?
I was traumatized by Chinese food for many years due to a severe case of food poisoning. I've since gotten over it -- and gratefully so, since I love Asian cuisine.
Once, I went to a restaurant and ordered the beef shanks, which, in their description, promised to be nothing short of marvelous. I have never had something so awful in my life. There was no seasoning or flavor. The meat was not cooked appropriately. I could not finish the meal, never went back to that restaurant ever again, and never wanted it at any other restaurant.
There's no food I've been traumatized by, but I'm not a ketchup fan -- for no other reason than I just don't like it. If I'm sharing a plate of fries with someone and they pour ketchup all over it, it's over for me.
