The HAIF's Favorite Food

Recommended Posts

The HAIF is a unique bunch, but I was wondering what food is almost universally approved within HAIF. At my school, everyone seems to approve Dr Pepper (and Nutella, for that matter), but at the HAIF, a universal favorite has got to be in order. Some of the things I enjoy include steak, pizza, homemade bread, smoothies, Dr Pepper, coffee, and donuts.

I'm on board with you for steak, homemade bread and Nutella.

I'd add New York and Vermont cheddar cheeses, both Cincinnati and Texas-style chili, and brandy ice cream.

Also, the new Starbucks VIA instant coffee is pretty good, but it takes some practice to make it right.

Burgers... steak, brisket, ribs, hot dogs, taco bell & chow mein.. Anything asian & tex-mex.

However, not just any of the above. Taco Bell would be nothing without fire sauce. I think its all about what you dress your food with..

Nutella is ecstasy, but spreadable. But for some reason I'm not a fan of sweets anymore.

I also like tasty hummus, salmon (there was a tasty restaurant in Rice Village that served good salmon, but the serving was small), and cheesesteaks (Texadelphia's!)

Buy me Chinese and I am your pal forever like Confucious says. :)

I would say alcohol is what most Haifers prefer for breakfast, lunch & dinner or even as a snack bewteen meals... or so they say.

BLASPHEMY!

Texadelphia is NOT a cheesesteak. It is a fraud...and not a good one, at that.

Tell me where a better one is and I shall try it. Texadelphia is convenient for me but I'm always looking for a good cheesesteak.

Well, I read a recipe elsewhere that gave the recipe (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/the-best-of/pats-king-of-steaks-philadelphia-cheese-steak-recipe/index.html) to the famous Philly "Pat's King of Steaks". I went to Philadelphia, and they were sold out of cheesesteaks by lunchtime. Cheapskates. <_<

I suppose the "Philly Connection" places spread around Houston are frauds too, right? ;)

I have to agree with Red on this one, but then again, I grew up outside Philly. A good cheesesteak outside Philly is like good Tex-Mex outside Texas. Very hard to find.

My overall favorites are Thai, Mediterranean, Indian, and Vietnamese. I can pretty much always eat pizza, even if it's not very good quality. I would bet that pizza is probably the most universal favorite.

I have a friend from Philly that tells me the only good cheesesteak has cheese-wiz on it, which sounds totally gross to me, but I'm willing to try anything (except sushi).

No, Hemingway did that. Either that or you want to create a "drunk Texan" stereotype. But if that was true, that would explain a lot of weird posts around here. :lol:

Chinese Food from 888 Bistro in Clear Lake.

Shrimp, flounder, crabcakes, hushpuppies.

Cornbread

Pinto beans

Cole Slaw

Stuffed Baked Potato with chopped beef

Breakfast

James Coney Island Chili, and cheese coneys with onions, and chili-cheese fries (alas, we don't have one in Clear Lake any more!)

Mexican food from Gringo's

And, I guess I am not a "real" HAIFer, cuz I don't drink.

I like shrimp, too, but not fried.

I like sushi too, but because its so expensive and limited, I rarely eat it

The "cake batter" flavored ice cream (there was a decent Creamy Creations version, but I think it was a special edition).

Coffee is good with almost anything (make mine black)

Those really flat and thin M&M cookies from Kroger.

Tofu isn't really that bad. It's a bit bland, but cooked the right way, it's worth eating. I wouldn't eat it as a meat substitute though. icon8.gif

Crawfish

Green apples

Salads with feta cheese

Again, keep in mind that my favorite foods are rarely available/expensive. I don't eat these normally. And tofu is not one of my favorite foods. <_<

Breakfast for every meal! And the occasional Smashburger (yes, it's from Denver and yes it's a chain, but there must be some sort of new MSG substance in it).

Smoked Boudin and Bugs. Had some last night. Smoked 20 pounds of Boudin, it's better as left overs. The smoke flavor really comes out the second and third day, if it makes it that far.

This was me when I realized that I'm an adult and I can buy whatever cereal I want to. I spent a month eating every sugar coated cocoa bomb my mother would never buy me as a child.
