10 Types of Foodies you see around
Food is not rational. Food is culture, habit, craving and identity.- Jonathan Safran Foer
There is no single person on earth who doesn’t like to eat food. Chances are some are less inclined, while some go to any degree to top off their belly. You might have witnessed the people who salivate just by listening to the name of the food.
Most of you have started imagining the last time you managed to lick the lip-smacking molten chocolate that came out from the dark brown choco-lava cake. Isn’t it? Some people don’t agree that they like food, but the fact is we all love food! We all are foodies.
There is no sincere love than the love of the food –George Bernard Shaw
Good food can immediately make you jump out of joy, turning your tedious mood into a happy one! The food on the plate is much more satisfying than anything else. The same taste in food can bring people together as it develops a mutual bond tying them with the same thread. The moment we hear “there will be food,” we never deny the event.
Now, who is a foodie?
People always misunderstand that foodies are those who eat a lot of foods. However, it means a connoisseur of eating and cooking good food, which we all are. Some prefer to try a new dish on their platter, and some adhere to their favorite cuisine.
Let’s see in which of the category you and your friends belong :
- Anything Eater
This first and the top category person says ‘kuch bhi chalega’ ( anything); yes, they are the real food lovers. Often regarded as gourmands, they are incredibly fond of eating foods. No matter what food gets served, they will try. They are the best people as they don’t judge the food. Just dish it out on their platter, and they will finish it up!
2. The Picky Eater
These food lovers are the picky ones who have a very keen eye for the food appetite. They will read the menu for like hours and then decide what to order. Their foods come up with more terms and conditions than a service agreement. Sometimes, they remain flummoxed, not satisfied with the food ordered for and think, “I should have ordered green chutney rather than the red one.”
3. My Favourite Place
They are the most loyal customers; they always prefer the taste of the same restaurant. No matter what, they will land at that particular place to have their meal. Also, praising their favorite restaurant’s food is past time for them and insists on others to give it a try. “Kahi ka bhi chicken chilli kha lo, par wo wala swaad ni aayega” (you can eat chicken chilli from anywhere, but you will never get that taste).
4. The Travel Freak Eater
For the foodie community, this person who eats anywhere is most useful as they travel to different places and try new food. The list is ever-ready handy with them from where you should try which food. One must consult them before trying any dish from an unknown place, and they love to share their experience. So, if you plan to visit any restaurant, it’s best to take an opinion from this person and take their suggestions. I guarantee you won’t regret it!
5. The Photographer Foodie
Wait! Let me take a picture first, and then you can have it. They visit different places not to try novel flavors but to click great foods! Their feeds on Instagram have more food than in their belly. They hop up to every nook and cranny of the city to get the food’s best angle. Feel more satisfied with the perfect click than the excellent taste.
6. The Innovative One
Trying different self-made cuisines at their home is their hobby. These gourmet foodies do many inventions in their cooking style; they rule the kitchen like a master chef. People stick around them to get the taste of innovative and delicious meals they make every time. Watching cookery shows and being there one day is their dream! Often, they won’t allow you to eat outside because they say, “I can easily cook this at home.”
7.The Local Shops Supporter
They are the ones who support local vendors; they never get bored from eating street foods. Most of the time, we find the localized traditional cuisines on the street side of any place. Embedded along with the taste is the culture of the area.
8. The Fancy One
It costs you a lot to satisfy their hunger! They prefer only fancy restaurants and apply all the etiquette while having delicacy. These epicure species order foods which are not only hard to pronounce but also taste exotic. The moment they enter the fancy luxurious restaurant you can see a completely new person in them!
9. The Over Dozers
They need food, no matter what the circumstances are! They have a voracious appetite and remain hungry all the time. Call them glutton or bhukkad; they will eat more than required sometimes. They have a separate space for the desserts left in their belly, even if they have eaten a lot.
10. One Bite Eater
“I am on a diet, no more calories!” does this line ring a bell? Yes, they will eat but judiciously. Green salads and coffee without sugar are some of their ways to order food. They like different foods but maintaining a perfect figure and a healthy lifestyle is a priority for them. You can’t have unhealthy food with them, ‘it’s not hygienic.’
