Here are the top three weirdest food combos that I’ve ever heard of:
- Weird Spaghetti
The dilemma–you cooked too much spaghetti sauce, and you are out of spaghetti noodles. What do you do? Usually, I slice a piece of pandesal, spread spaghetti sauce on each half, add some slices of Quickmelt cheese, then I heat it up in the toaster. My cousin Juancho doesn’t do this. He prefers to put the sauce on top of rice. I thought this was weird; he thought this was totally normal.
- Jolly Eating
The giant red bee smiled at my cousins and I, and we were all jolly. Snow white swirly ice cream, pale yellow oily french fries, and goopy bright red ketchup–that was our feast. The ritual began. Take one french fry, dip it in ketchup, dip it in ice cream, and eat it all up!
- The Family Urban Legend
An unconfirmed story about our uncle continues to be told during random dinners and other family gatherings. The story goes that our uncle likes to put ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard on his hotdog sandwich, and then he dunks it into a cup of a hot Nescafe coffee. Filipinos are known to dunk pandesal into their coffee, milk, or chocolate, but dunking an entire hotdog sandwich is still a relatively weird practice.
How about you? What’s your weirdest food combo? Please leave a comment below!
