Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

i get what clark is saying, there is rarely any surprise when it comes to scallop dishes

that said, scallops are amazing

lamb is way overrated imo, i've had it at some really good restaurants and have always been underwhelmed

duck is da best tho, clark got that right

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Could not disagree more with D10 about Lamb.

Some of the lamb dishes I've had at good restaurants are up there with the GOAT dishes I've ever had.

IMO Properly cooked lamb has a better overall taste than ribeye or filet.

truth.

shrimp can be pretty elite, scallops are alright, calamari is awesome. Mostly eat more freshwater stuff because of location, perch and walleye ftw

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

i've tried lamb at meh restaurants, i've tried lamb at elite restaurants, and in every case the texture of it has always bothered me. not exactly sure why. just can't enjoy it.

call me old fashioned, but nothing beats an elite steak

Only reasons scallop and steak are so low are their floors. Beef and scallops, all-around tend to disappoint the most. When done right, I put them both right after pig; otherwise, I'm taking pig over anything from the cow or out of the water all day.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

I think you're nuts if you consider beef to have a low floor. You have to try to ruin a steak, any competent cook can get a steak to somewhere around medium rare where it's at worst pretty solid. Much easier to screw up something like chicken breast where the cook has to both cook it properly and impart flavor since it doesn't have much on its own.

I did the hard part of finding 50 commonly consumed meats. all you have to do is reorder them if you want to suggest that my list is somehow incorrect.

Low floor in terms of beef being beef. If we're talking good beef, great, but there's no way around mediocre beef. There are plenty around chicken. I usually don't choose chicken because pig is an option where the beef isn't appealing.

Alligator's too low. And I'm shocked the northern white-breasted hedgehog isn't even top 50.

That list isn't terrible, but tuna at 3 is lololololololz

Edit: also, you need to differentiate between types of salmon. Fresh Copper River salmon >>>>>>> Atlantic salmon
