Have you ever heard of comfort food? It is referred to a food that is familiar that brings some form of comfort, a sense of well being, and satisfaction. It also supplies a welcome respite from the stresses of the outside world and triggers some nostalgic memories. Do you have one and why?

If you're thinking fast food then definitely it would be KFC here in Manila. At least a good cheese steak sandwich is also comforting to me.

Hi...I was thinking along the lines of foods that you eat to reward yourself for a job well done or to comfort you during stress. For example, my comfort food is chocolates and ice cream. I eat them when I'm stressed out or depressed. But anyway, thanks for responding. :)

Well Fried chicken is really comforting to me with mash potatoes and lots of gravy hahaha. Then a cold glass of Pepsi would wash it off.

Thanks... That's more like it. Sometimes, I also go to KFC and buy a bucket to go then I eat them at home with my family. This usually alleviates some of my stress at work. :)

Hi...I also like tiramisu and add to that, leche flan as one of my comfort foods. Anything sweet will help alleviate my spirit when I'm feeling down. I tend to nibble on them bit by bit as I reflect on what happened that made the entire day bad.

Mcdonald's caramel sundae and mcfloat is my kind of comfy food. Having these kind of food would bring back my happy and carefree days as a child, may be it's the childness in my personality that is always wanting the simple joys of being a kid.=D

Chocolates! I also love eating pizzas more when I feel so stressed. And chocolate or caramel sundaes! But I always eat it even I don't feel stressed. And I also love to eat cheeseburgers!

Oh, that would be pasta with lots and lots of mozarella cheeses. It's really something that could take away the stresses that I encounter everyday. If I'm ultimately depressed, I would nibble a slice of cheese just to make me happy.

Well for me it would be tender bobs in greenhills. The ambiance is very relaxing and the food was great.

A hot beef sandwich with steaming mashed potatoes and gravy...that would be my comfort food. But it's not a good thing because I have high blood pressure and high cholestral...but if I am really hungry and want something to really make me feel good that would be what I would get.

I guess my comfort food would be pizza because of the ingredients present to it that made my taste buds to crave for more. Usually if I am stressed and problematic I usually ask friends out and invite them to eat pizza.
