It melts in your mouth

Does anybody else get tired of hearing that phrase?  Unless I'm eating ice cream or Jello, I don't want my food to melt in my mouth.  If your pulled pork sandwich melts in my mouth, you overcooked the damn meat!

    Yeah, I don't care for the term either. Also can't stand "It's like butter...you can cut it with a butter knife."
     
      Does this date back to when people rarely had good teeth by a certain age, and hence woolly mammoth meat cooked to the consistency of butter was at a premium? I know, I know, they didn't have butter back when they were eating woolly mammoths. I guess I should have said margarine.

    I don't hear it much anymore.
    I am getting tired of "Drooling On My Keyboard" and Other Drooling type comments.

    "To die for" really doesn't do it for me. No food is worth dying over, it is a ridiculous phrase.

    Speaking of dying, the statement sounds ignorant to me is "I wouldn't eat that if I were starving to death."

    How about "That's a killer [dip, sandwich, etc.]". In my mind, the only food that qualifies in that expression is the Japanese fugu!

    You read my mind! Every time I hear someone say this, I call them on it.

    "To die for..." is my current food phrase pet peeve.

    I've never been a fan of "like mom used to make" or "like grandma used to make". I really would pretty much have to be starving to death to eat things like they made. But I'd still eat it.

    I guess my other restaurant menu pet peeve is the term "house made."
     
    Whose house? If the restaurant world hadn't completely gone to hell in a handbasket already, the need to advertise that one's food is made on site in a haughty way is surely one way to put the final nail in the coffin.

    Prime Rib. It's not Prime. It may not even be Choice.

    Going the other direction, one of my favorites is, "If that ain't good, then Grits ain't groceries!"

    I have always hated "melts in your mouth". Unless you're talking about ice cream or sherbet or such, it just isn't true.

    Yes, the most bothersomeone is, "to die for."   
     
    Another annoying one is "uninspired", such as "The pie was uninspired".    That's giving anthropomorphic qualities to the food.   People can can be inspired.  Food can't.   The food does not have human emotions, so it is not capaple of being inspired.   People who use the term "uninspired" in regard to food probably mean "uninspirING", as in the food is uninspiring to them,  but it's still an annoying term. 
     
    Also joining the list of ridiculous terms is "tasteless".  Maybe the food is not seasoned enough, or is bland, but almost nothing is actually "tasteless" (... perhaps distilled water is tasteless?  I don't know.  That might even have some taste?).
     
    Another one is "overpriced".  I wouldn't call this a ridiculous term, but it frequently seems to be used incorrectly in place of "high priced" or "highly priced".   If the business still does well at that (high) price point, and they are not driving away so many customers with that high price that they start decreasing their profits, then they are not really "overpriced."   An example is Peter Luger's.  They are high priced, but there is still plenty of demand at that high price, so they are not "overpriced".  (They might be "overpriced" for your own personal wallet, but that is a separate individual financial issue that should not be part of a review.).   In a review, calliing them high priced or highly priced would be a much more accurate term than "overpriced".    Another place that frequently gets the "overpriced" label is Five Guys.  Yes, they are are priced on the high side for a counter service burger joint.  But, with the high demand they still get, and people willing to pay the higher prices, they are not technically "overpriced".

    You mean you've never smacked your lips when you tasted something that pleased you?
