Sandwiches at jewish delis - the ones that are just 3/4 lbs of deli meat piled 5 inches high on rye bread with nothing else. And the people who rave about how awesome they are. It's like eating a plate of pastrami with a fork and chasing it with a tiny slice of crappy bread. A decent sandwich needs a balance of at least 5 different ingredients.

Spaghetti - I know it's identical to every other pasta except for its shape, but for some reason it almost always sucks. Can't hold sauce well, tricky to cook right.
It's funny, but most of the white fishes at higher end restaurants(Dover Sole(real sole not some bs a place is calling sole), sea bass and grouper are actually extremely expensive to buy wholesale $15-20lb for quality fish. I agree with you though and never order any of that at restaurants. but my mom gets the dumb bland chicken dish all the time. I don't know how she always eats it, so boring.

Haha I love jewish deli sandwiches and actually usually don't like a ton of ingredients on my sandwiches(I hate L/T on anything other then a good cold cut and half the time I don't like it on there).

I completely agree with you about spaghetti I never buy it always buy a different type of pasta.
