I was talking to a friend and told her she should try Sushi. She made a face and sad never. My parents were like that until I tried Sushi, and liked it they went. I use to be one that ate the same and brands all the time. I told myself 2012 I am trying new things not just with food but adventures. So even going to the grocery store I find many things I really enjoy which I wouldn't have tried before.

Sushi isn't for everyone I was using it as an example, but I believe try it at least once. You don't know what its like until you try it.

I suggest if you try sushi go with someone who likes it. I went with 3 others and tried different kinds (so I could try them and if I didn't like them then they would eat them). I'm not much of fish or meat person but I enjoyed the spicy salmon, and eel rolls as well they don't taste like fish either.

I eat my steak well-done. I wouldn't want to eat meat with the blood still oozing out of it! In the same way, I would never eat uncooked fish. New food is fine as long as it is properly cooked.

Yes, to some its too big of a jump. Even trying vegetarian sushi she refused (its just cucumber, radishes, sweet potaoes, and so on. Some won't step out of those boundaries, and try it once.

I think medium rare steak is so good. I guess i got that from my dad and pap giving it to me as a kid.

I work in a grocery store and see many different things I wouldn't think of getting otherwise. I ask the customer about them and most of the time after I try it, I am amazed and that's just one of the things I regularly get after that.

I think I would love working in a grocery store you get that chance and even a staff discount too.I'm willing to try things at least once to see if I like it.

I have always tried all kinds of foods but I am just not brave enough to try sushi, I know they are not all fish but I don't have the desire to try it.

I love Sushi since I like japanese food so much. Usually I try new foods as long as I know the way how they cook it or if I know what kind of food it is. Try new foods a good experience because it can challenge your taste and mind while eating it.

I love trying new foods. I also love to travel so take advantage of the opportunity of trying new foods then. I tried a lot of new and different foods when I was in Cuba...a lot of the local fruit that we don't get here in Canada and dishes/soups that are native to that country. I also tried a lot of new culinary delights when I was in Europe. Even when I don't go far, just to the states for example, there things or different brands to try that we don't get here in Canada. I quite enjoyed trying all the deep fried foods when I was in Tennessee. Yes, fried green tomatoes (which I had never tasted before) and fried dill pickles. Ummmmm. Not something I would want to eat all the time but definitely enjoyed trying it. I have also tried Sushi although I can't say it has become a favourite.

When I was in the Dominican I loved trying their foods even fruits. I loved their milk ( I don't know what it was and don't want to know) but it was good. I've never been to the US but I love watching those cooking shows on TV and it looks so good. I've tried deep fried pickles and they are good but never green tomatoes (never heard of them). The resturant we go for sushi its not those cheap buffet sushi bars the chefs are from japan and I've never tried other stores though.

I agree life is too short and we need to try everything once. I love trying new foods and some you really enjoy that you never thought you would.

I love to try new food, but I haven't always been that way. When I was a child I was extremely picky and there was lots of food that I wouldn't eat. I rejected food that I didn't know and I wasn't even willing to try it once. Today I am the opposite type of person, because I find it really interesting to eat new kinds of food. When I visit another country I always eat the local food and I always try to find some of the food that isn't available in my own country. When I visit a foreign restaurant in my own country I do the same thing. I pick a dish that I have never eaten before or heard about before. Sometimes I don't like the food that I get, but I think it is worth a try, and I have discovered some very delicious dishes that way.

I use to be the same, but love trying new things and experimenting. I know many as adults who won't try new things, and its sort of sad seeing what they are missing.

Actually, being a Punjabi I am a little different, beside our area has different food habits. We prefer to eat roasted more than cooked in other styles. Most of our food is Tandoori that is kind of big oven/grill made with a difference. We still use those earthen ovens to cook our delicacies. Perhaps you have heard about Tandoori Chicken -that is one of the item cooked that way.

I am a person who doesn't like doing something over and over again just as I don't like eating something I have been always eating my whole life. I think I am adventurous when it comes to food and I like eating something new and strange to me. I think it's exciting. I don't like eating the same old bread I've been eating since I was a kid.

I do try new foods just because I'll never know if I like it or not. I've tried sushi a few times but I just can't seem to enjoy it lol. It can be fun though to try new things and learn that there are other foods out there that you enjoy

I like to eat sushi and raw fish, it is very delicious... but i eat it in Korea only, in vietnam, i scare it may not clean. In fact before i could not eat raw fish at all but my advisor always went to raw fish restaurant whenever we had a lab-eating together...If I didn't eat, i could have no food to eat...and the result is...i love to eat raw fish right now.
