Top ten food crazes of 2013

The cronut is totally overrated. You'll have to pry Sriracha from my cold dead hands though. "If it don't smell, it don't sell!"

Maybe I'll try this.

Gross.

Other than kale I guess I missed it. I had no idea kale was a craze but as expensive as my favorite Kale Krunch is I should have figured it out. Love that stuff.

Kale was big here in 2013 (along with rocket) but I've not heard of any of that other junk.

The Doritos Locos tacos are excessive, and very American in that respect ... but they're not gross.  (At least in relative terms when talking about Taco Bell food.)

Gross, I believe, would be that mac-n-cheese hamburger thing.  Yuck.

And that "quinoa" stuff just makes me laugh because of the NFL commercial where the guy is grilling it at the tailgate because he thinks it helps his team win.  LOL!

Kale is utterly disgusting.

I have had Quinoa.  It is a lot like couscous.  I love that NFL commercial with the guy grilling the Quinoa burger. Sriracha rocks!  It has been around for a long time though.

Hadn't heard of any of the pastry fads, but I'm not really a pastry guy.  The Doritos Dos Locos taco has been a huge hit; I've never had one, but I'm not a Taco Bell guy, as I prefer real taco joints, which are usually just as cheap as Taco Bell anyway.

I do love kale.  A farmer's market I used to frequent when I lived in Hawaii had a kale poke nacho thing that was really good.  They called it a sushi slider, but it was just a ball of fried kale with a scoop of ahi poke on top.  Yumm.

Mac-n-cheese burgers are freaking awesome if you don't give a crap about your cholesterol level. @Golfingdad you are nutz.

The rest of it looks pretty ho-hum to me (except for Sriracha of course, but that's nothing new).

Yeah real tacos or nothing for me. There are five or more taco places within walking distance of my office with prices in the .99-1.60 range. Though the best are the off the grid places. In Brighton CO some of the best "restaurants" are people serving food from their home kitchens. That's the fad here. They do it on the weekends so the city doesn't bust them.

I don't know what they're selling at Taco Bell, but it ain't tacos.

These are tacos.

Taco Taco was one of our favorites when we lived in SA. One of the best taco places I've ever been to.

Come to think of it the fad here was restaurants putting a spin on "authentic" tacos. Quite a few popped up in the last year. Below is a menu sample. I ate there once it was pretty good.

Stella’s Pork Carnitas slow cooked pork shoulder in Stella Artois over smoked gouda sweet potato mash with pineapple habanero salsa
Marinated Fish daily fish selection marinated in serranos and lime with orange jalapeño slaw and the business
Arrachera grilled skirt steak over refritos with roasted onions, pico de gallo, house crema and cotija
Camerones a la diabla spicy shrimp over jalapeño grits with pico de gallo, avocado, lime, house crema and cotija
The Sirloin Situation slow cooked sirloin in Negra Modelo over smoked gouda sweet potato mash with roasted onions and house crema
Chorizo and Red Onion Escabeche over roasted garlic mash with salsa verde, house crema and cotija

    • This is the interesting question.  If he hadn't been drinking, there should be no reason to refuse the breathalyzer.   Surely he's not stupid enough to tell a boldfaced lie in his statement that will easily be refuted.
    • Number one, I had no idea there was a free rules of golf app. Do you have to be a member of the USGA? Because i'm Canadian, and Golf Canada doesn't give us free anything besides a crappy quarterly magazine. I didn't have a current rules book with me, as I was forced out of the game for almost 3 years due to a workplace injury. I encountered a situation that had never happened to me before and asked a simple question. 
    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
