    Fuck Arugala!

    I'm sick of this shit, it's fucking just a pointy, stemy, bitter tasting leaf.
    I've been eating it for fucking decades, those fucking chefs were probably trolling us mixing it in to all the fucking salads.

    Fuck Arugala!

    Arugala fan here.

    Edit: Arugula is apparently hard to spell.

    What about kale? When the fuck did it become a thing to EAT it? All through college I worked in a restaurant where we used it as a garnish, but no one ever ate it.

    The best thing about Arugala is that they call it Rocket in Europe. Eating a rocket sounds sorta interesting.

    Romaine, iceberg, butter; they're all good. Arugula's spiciness makes it unique. And delicious.

    You consider arugula spicy?
    What about ketchup?
    Do you have to cut it with mayo to tone it down?

    Unique, delicious (if you get the right stuff to offset the bitterness), and somehow worse than iceberg lettuce in terms of redeeming health qualities.

    Hah. Not in an absolute sense of course, but relative to other lettuces arugula is definitely spicy.

    QFT. One of my first jobs was at a Sizzler. We used kale to garnish the salad bar - Even a sizzler doesn't think that crap is for food. It was the lowest of low that no human would knowingly consume. It's just barely worse than arugula

    Maybe I'm just getting bad arugula.
    Never tasted spicy or peppery, just a pointy bitter bitch.

    Iceberg works in two situations:
    1) Wedge, when you're confidently avoiding any pretense of eating something green for health purposes.
    2) On a burger. Further, its the only lettuce that works on a burger, and I will cut anyone that says differently.

    Cabbage is excellent on a burger.

    Since I cant be bothered to follow through, I'm going to have to rely on the honor system here and ask you to cut yourself.

    Hi Pookie....

    Arugula is yummy, and when I donít want to feel weighed down when Iím going to be Sweating to the Oldies in the afternoon, I mix it into a great big salad!

    Speaking of salad, wanna toss mine?

    Kimchi, coleslaw, pickled cabbage all work on a burger.

    Only if you're trying to mask the flavor of shitty meat.

    Pizza doesn't count, the sauce sweetness offsets the fuck leaf nastiness.
