The hottest things in food don’t always live up to the hype. The internet hopes these popular food trends go out of fashion soon.
Can we please go back to when food trucks did one thing well for a reasonable price? No one wants to pay restaurant prices for your tiny burger with an entire tomato shoved between the buns.
Please just show me the menu! Why do I have to start an online order if I don’t even know I want to eat there yet?
Fancy Street Tacos
High-end restaurants trying to capitalize on the taco craze don’t understand the appeal of street tacos. You don’t charge $20 bucks for 3 street tacos.
Trendy Poor Food
Rich people discovered the delicious treasures of poor people’s food, like ox tail, chicken wings, and spam, so prices increased, ensuring the poor could no longer enjoy their favorite staples.
There’s an entire subculture where people waste precious food attempting to make the most horrific concoctions imaginable. It’s all for clicks and engagement.
Why do we love the word “hack” so much? Making a slight change to a recipe isn’t a hack. Making the recipe easier with a unique trick would be a hack.
Back in the day, we could drive through a town and recognize the different fast food places by their unique building designs. Now, they’re all standard beige, which makes the real estate easier to offload but also makes the cities boring.
Messing with Service Workers
People are notoriously rude to service workers. They’ll make ridiculous requests for video views and engagement while refusing to see that they’re hurting the real person in front of them who just wants to do their job and go home.
Heart Attack Desserts
We don’t need deep-fried Twinkies stuffed with fried oreos or donuts over milkshakes covered with chocolate sauce.
Some places try so hard to make food look good for photos that the quality decreases. It doesn’t matter, though. The people who go there would rather have a perfect shot for Instagram than a delicious meal.
We don’t hate recipe blogs, but we hate that all food bloggers think they need to write a 2000-word treatise on why they’ve loved banana bread since childhood. Can we just have the recipe, please?
Does anyone really enjoy the sounds of someone else chewing?
Everyone loves a delicious burger, but the trend where it’s so tall you need a detachable jaw to bite into it needs to end.
Fusion is fantastic, but not everything needs to be fusion. I don’t need sushi tacos; sometimes I just want sushi, and sometimes I just want tacos.
Bacon is great for breakfast and on a BLT. We don’t need bacon in green beans, smothered in chocolate, in our bloody marys, or with our grilled chicken.
