Describe an occasion when you ate a kind of food for first time.
You should say:
When you had it
Where you ate it
What it was
and how you felt about it
I’d like to talk about the experience when I first ate stinky tofu, which is
a pretty popular Chinese snack that you can get basically from any snack bar.
Anyway, you can tell from its name that it has an unpleasant smell, which used
to make me wanna puke. I mean, every time I walked past a snack bar that sells
stinky tofu, I would be disgusted by the horrible smell. And also, it is
deep-fired, which is not good for my health and skin, so I never wanted to try
However, once I played truth or dare with a bunch of friends, and they dared
me to take a bite of stinky tofu. I was reluctant, but at the same time, I
didn’t want to be called a party-pooper, so I went outside and get myself a cube
of stinky tofu. I struggled for a while, and I have to say, it was really hard
to hold my breath for that long. Finally, I summoned up the courage and take a
bite. Surprisingly, it tasted amazingly good! It was crisp outside, and tender
inside, besides, they had this incredibly palatable sauce, which made it all the
more savory. I just fell in love with it at first bite, right now, even only the
thought of it can make my mouth water. I remember I bought 2 boxes of them that
day, and I ate them all without sharing with my friends. The smell almost killed
them, but I really had a blast.
Since then, I tried quite a few things that I’d never thought of eating
before, like spiders, sashimi and stuff like that. And I realize my
preconception has stopped me from eating many kinds of delish food, so I feel
that I missed out on a lot of fun in the past.
