Some people eat to live. I live to eat. I eat every meal like it is gonna be my last. Los Angeles is the best place in the world to live if you want to eat great food. I know New Yorkers wanna boast that their food is the best. The only response I have to them is “yeah, yeah, whatever..whatever…talk to the stomach” (please imagine Joe Pesci’s voice in Lethal Weapon 4).
In my journey through the culinary world I have come to realize there are three types of people: foodies, fatties, and the rare breed that is both. Many people get these categories confused. The way you tell the difference is by asking yourself this question: If God made all food 0 calories and $0 what would you want to eat most? Foodies would say sushi, foie gras, rack of lamb, exotic cheeses, etc. Fatties would say chili cheese fries (from Tommy’s of course), store bought ramen, pizza, etc. Remember you have to ask what you would want to eat MOST.
My wife and I are both. We are the type of people that if God declared all food 0 calories and $0 we would go to an expensive steakhouse (I know everything is $0…work with me), drink expensive wine, followed by a decadent dessert made by the top pastry chef in the world. After that on our way home we would stop by Tommy’s and eat chili fries.
Which one are you?
