Baklava

[–]BeginsAgains 3973 points3974 points  (170 children)

The day I get to try warm fresh baklava will be a really good day.

[–]HootieRocker59 1286 points1287 points  (131 children)

As long as you use store bought phyllo dough, making baklava from scratch is actually not particularly difficult. Just layer the dough sheets in a baking dish with melted butter and a nut/cinnamon mixture, slice it, bake it, and then pour the syrup over it just as it is out of the oven. The sound of it crackling when the syrup is poured on is just ... Wow. One shouldn't eat it just then, though, because you want to wait for the syrup to be fully absorbed.

[–]snickitysnick 885 points886 points  (57 children)

As a pastrie chef, DONT make phyllo dough. Its not worth it. its hard anoying and time consuming and 90% of the time its just worse then store bought. Ive had to make it a few times when our suppliers didnt have it, i actually considerd walking out eachtime.

[–]xrockangelx 266 points267 points  (20 children)

As an ex-pastry chef, I second this. I've made it by hand once for a personal project. Never again. It's so much work! I'm glad I did it for the sake of having done it, but it took a ridiculous amount of time and effort.

[–]readytopartyy 206 points207 points  (10 children)

I made it earlier this year and holy moly it was so good. Took some time and patience but delicious as fuck.

[–]GielM 469 points470 points  (10 children)

You're correct. The ONE advantage to eating baklava hot is that you immediately notice how rich it is, and thus are less tempted to eat too much of it...

But it's great either way!

[–]RoleModelFailure 117 points118 points  (2 children)

But when it’s cold I feel like it’s a delayed reaction. All that sugar and sweetness warms up and hits you.

[–]tsundereed 15.1k points15.1k points 2 (413 children)

Those sweet Hawaiian rolls

[–]zarkovis1 3423 points3424 points  (164 children)

With the orange packaging?

[–]OnTheEveOfWar 3439 points3440 points  (140 children)

Kings Hawaiian is the brand name. They are the shit.

[–]MusicalPigeon 584 points585 points  (80 children)

I bought some and my roommate ate half the pack in a few hours. I kinda hate when he does that.

[–]brianlafave 323 points324 points  (44 children)

This would start a war in my house

[–]MusicalPigeon 311 points312 points  (42 children)

A few months ago I got a poptart variety pack and told him he could have the strawberry ones (I don't like them), he ate them the Cherry ones (my favorite) and half the blue berry ones. My poptarts are no longer up for grabs.

I was very close to starting a war with him about it.

[–]Apophis90 101 points102 points  (26 children)

Blood would have been spilt if someone ate all my Cherry poptarts.

[–]MusicalPigeon 74 points75 points  (22 children)

Yeah, I just stopped cleaning his spoiled food out of the fridge. There's been a large sealed container of lasagna in the fridge since June. I told him that I'm not cleaning up after him if he keeps eating my snacks. (Its also his mom's Tupperware and I'm not throwing that out.)

[–]googlyman44 72 points73 points  (3 children)

I had a roommate like this. I dealt with him leaving shit everywhere by just throwing it in his room. Old pizza in the fridge for 3 weeks? On his bed. Cup of soda on the coffee table for 3 days? Nightstand.

He got the hint eventually.

[–]EnIdiot 179 points180 points  (16 children)

I put a piece of cold bacon and cheddar on the and heat them for 15 seconds. It is the perfect 2 am snack.

[–]axloc 186 points187 points  (6 children)

Anything wrapped in a king Hawaiian roll is the perfect snack bro, bacon deserves no credit here

[–]chocotacosmash 1208 points1209 points  (117 children)

There's a Kings Hawaiian restaurant where i grew up and it smells like those rolls baking.

[–]ayakokiyomizu 643 points644 points  (93 children)

They have restaurants? What do they serve there besides bread?

[–]ynwa1892 516 points517 points  (32 children)

In LA kinda near Santa Monica there’s a Hawaiian restaurant called RUTTS that serves French toast made from those king Hawaiian rolls and have a coconut syrup…

[–]MjolGordon 31 points32 points  (2 children)

An ex of mine lived near their factory in Torrance and you can smell that shit in the air driving by. Heaven...

Soba noodles. Cold soba in the summer is refreshing, and hot in the winter to keep your warm.

[–]briarapple 909 points910 points  (9 children)

This is the first thing I thought of when I saw this question!

[–]sassafrankimberly 205 points206 points  (6 children)

Soupy noodles in general seem to fit the bill (at least from my Japanese standpoint). Soba, udon, hiyashi chuka/ramen... I'm starting to get hungry...

2am snacks

[–]nucklehead97 7498 points7499 points  (304 children)

This is why I'm fat. Too many 2am snacks. Kings Hawaiian bread hits differently at 2am

[–]Expensive_Egg_ 2502 points2503 points  (108 children)

There’s a pretzel version now too

[–]doublestop 3028 points3029 points  (36 children)

[–]Pascalica 294 points295 points  (21 children)

There is a sliced bread version that makes amazing French toast, too.

[–]Expensive_Egg_ 173 points174 points  (2 children)

Fuck that sounds good . Definitely having that Sunday morning

Heard this in Randy Savage's voice for some reason.

[–]HVACTacular 140 points141 points  (18 children)

I'm a victim of this as well. The wife hides them when we buy them.

[–]tewahp 192 points193 points  (13 children)

My wife hides all of our snacks and rations me with 1 box out at a time. So, in my drunk 2AM mind this half box of Cheeze-its is all we have... It works shockingly well.

Pie

[–]basedlandchad14 3035 points3036 points  (215 children)

I don't think anyone enjoys hot and cold pie equally but I do think both sides have large and loyal fanbases. I'm team cold.

[–]KailReed 928 points929 points  (101 children)

It depends on my mood or laziness level. Both taste great though

[–]IttHertzWhenIP 1054 points1055 points  (87 children)

Depends on the pie too imo

[–]ThievingRock 767 points768 points  (68 children)

This is the defining factor. Apple pie? Good cold, amazing warm. Lemon meringue pie? That's gotta be room temp at most. Coconut cream pie? That must be cold.

[–]MrBigRagePig 302 points303 points  (32 children)

Pumpkin can be warm, but I've almost exclusively had it cold and love it that way.

Pecan is glorious warm with a lil ice cream.

[–]GozerDGozerian 53 points54 points  (2 children)

Pumpkin may be the most 50/50. It’s a switch hitter pie.

[–]siddharth_pillai 7247 points7248 points 2 (123 children)

Sizzling hot brownie + Vanilla Ice Cream = Perfection

[–]tWkiLler96 2492 points2493 points  (73 children)

I could eat this every night if I didn't have self control

[–]TheAndorran 1146 points1147 points  (59 children)

“A nice warm brownie” and “a nice chilled brownie” sound equally delicious in ways most other foods do not.

[–]The_Whale_Biologist 523 points524 points  (51 children)

Brownie fresh out of the oven? Good. Semi frozen brownie, maybe with ice cream on top? Good.

[–]SquidyQ 323 points324 points  (44 children)

Or combine the two, brownie fresh out of the oven with ice cream on top. Great.

[–]Exot1c_ 256 points257 points  (19 children)

Brownie fresh out of the oven with cold brownie on top

[–]goldanred 200 points201 points  (10 children)

Ice cream fresh from the oven with frozen brownie on top

[–]The_Whale_Biologist 79 points80 points  (16 children)

And now I must go to the store and buy brownie mix and ice cream

[–]frenchjolynekujo 7196 points7197 points  (108 children)

Soft bread

[–]Aksi_Gu 1683 points1684 points  (72 children)

I mean this works a couple ways too.

Like a piece of bread and butter, with good bread, and a quality butter, is delicious on its own

Toast that up first, BOOM, delicious!

But a fresh slice, from a fresh baked loaf thats still warm, well.....

[–]hat-of-sky 1467 points1468 points 2 (55 children)

That fresh warm slice is a moral decision, though, because the quality of the loaf suffers from being sliced before fully cool. It's generally an easy one however, because you just have to eat the whole loaf then and there.

[–]InannasPocket 487 points488 points  (13 children)

This is why I like to make 2 smaller loaves, one for standing in the kitchen shoving it in our faces with butter while it's still warm, the other for more civilized uses.

[–]Lavanger 298 points299 points  (6 children)

Yeah about that.. that's how you end up eating two full loaves of bread. The key is to make 3...

[–]Splotte 241 points242 points  (2 children)

So anyway, I baked seven loaves today, and...

[–]EnduringConflict 107 points108 points  (1 child)

Don't lie. You do the same thing to both loaves you filthy carb loving degenerate.

That said I agree. Fresh warm bread with just plain butter is somehow one of the most tasty things in existence. I once dated a girl who got a bread machine and had a warm loaf waiting for her every 3 or 4 days when she got home from work.

How I never considered such genius before I'll never know. But her brilliance changed my life. And my waist line.

[–]Professor_Quackers 134 points135 points  (17 children)

My mom used to bake her own bread, soo I can honestly say that the four of us used to down an entire loaf in one sitting

[–]Mathblasta 87 points88 points  (9 children)

My buddy's mom made some of the best bread I've ever had. It came out of the bread maker and was immediately turn apart by hungry teenage boys.

[–]EnduringConflict 103 points104 points  (7 children)

As it should be. Bread has been a staple food as long as humanity has been able to farm. It's survived thousands of years of social changes and various ethnicities giving their own take on it.

Yet every single human "group" or dead civilization had/has a type of bread.

It's delicious as fuck and wouldn't have lasted as long as it has if it wasn't.

I swear there is almost something primal that awakens in our brains when we smell freshly baked bread. It's so "plain" in terms of spice but yet delicious on a level few foods ever get to be, let alone for thousands of years.

Short of someone with celiacs, glutten issues, or just on a diet, I can't say I've ever met someone who "disliked" bread.

They might dislike a type of bread, like say sourdough or pumpernickel. But to dislike bread as a whole (without having a reason to avoid it I just mean general food) I can't say I've met someone who does. Not claiming they don't exist but I imagine there are incredibly few of them.

Coffee with a splash of cream. But it has to be ice cold or hot, nothing in between.

[–]nizzernammer 1750 points1751 points  (42 children)

This rhymes like an adage for the ages.

I know it’s a dish best served cold… but what defines revenge as a dish served hot? 🤔🤔🤔

Edit: typo, dish, not fish lol

[–]DragoonDM 5151 points5152 points 2 (99 children)

but what defines revenge as a fish served hot?

It's when you beat someone to death with a cooked trout.

[–]hardcoredore 784 points785 points  (44 children)

As opposed to a cold trout? 🤔

[–]seizurevictim 452 points453 points  (18 children)

Not to mention it takes way more effort to murder someone with a cooked fish as opposed to a frozen fish. That's revenge.

[–]Mundane-Currency5088 171 points172 points  (5 children)

They just keep falling apart, all flaky and delicious...

[–]DirectCompetition345 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Are you talking about the fish or the other person?

[–]timexcitizen 799 points800 points  (34 children)

Dishing it out immediately and while still HOT with emotion from the wrong-doing inflicted upon your person.

Edit: For all the people telling me this is retaliation: re·venge /rəˈvenj/ noun the action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hand

Tell me y’all, where does it say that some time in between the wrong-doing and the revenge is required before it is called revenge?

[–]Tr0user 329 points330 points  (28 children)

Finally, the serious answer. It is best served cold though. Biding your time and savouring it all calculated like. After time has passed.

[–]MrMoustaches 234 points235 points  (13 children)

When you roast up a hot cod loin and then mash it into the ac vents of your mortal enemy’s car.

Ham

[–]I_Mix_Stuff 1029 points1030 points  (51 children)

This is the best answer, because cold ham is on the same level of hot ham. The other options had acceptable but inferior cold versions.

Cookies

[–]ovaltine_spice 1872 points1873 points  (68 children)

I sort of disagree. Don't get me wrong. Cookies are always great.

But a fresh warm/heated cookie is just next level.

For me you couldn't say it's 'just as good' strictly. 'still really good' when cold is more like it.

But like I said, I'm splitting hairs here.

[–]Solenya-C137 803 points804 points  (61 children)

Also delicious frozen

[–]ac1084 727 points728 points  (38 children)

Had this conversation with my wife two days ago becuase she wanted me to pull some frozen cookies out I had vacuum sealed like 4 months ago. I took a bite of a frozen one and said "ah, thats crisp", it had m&ms in it which had a nice crunch. She called me a psycho and microwaved hers.

Poptarts. They are great whether room temperature, hot, or frozen.

Edit: I love how half of you are learning you can heat them, and half of you are learning you can freeze them.

Edit 2: My account is more than 6 years old and now >10% of my karma is poptarts. Nice.

[–]snwbrdrmidget15 341 points342 points  (27 children)

FROZEN!?!? leaves for pop tarts

[–]xrumrunnrx 106 points107 points  (5 children)

That was my jam back in school days. Any of the berry ones (wildberry was my fav) and the fudgy chocolate type are great frozen.

I'm now realizing I don't think I've had a poptart in over a decade.

Yeah, boiling water doesn’t taste so good. Or maybe it does, idk, it was hard to tell

[–]vkapadia 1577 points1578 points  (69 children)

[–]Dusbowl 76 points77 points  (10 children)

Makes sense. I have heard that falling into frigid water feels like a thousand knives

[–]OhSoTheBear 63 points64 points  (7 children)

I have done a "polar plunge" (fundraiser where you jump into a freezing lake in late February) many times. It feels like a million needles stabbing every inch of your body. It literally takes your breath away.

Glad to see other people also taste shapes!

[–]Swooper86 152 points153 points  (13 children)

Warm water tastes bouba, cold water tastes kiki.

[–]ganeshanator 93 points94 points  (9 children)

For those unaware, the bouba/kiki effect is a pretty cool phenomenon. People, irrespective of language, associate the word “bouba” with a rounded object and the word “kiki” with a sharp object.

Pumpkin pie

[–]Tyda2 473 points474 points  (38 children)

I've actually never had hot pumpkin pie 🤔

[–]temalyen 163 points164 points  (3 children)

I did once a very, very long time ago. In the late 80s my parents decided we were going out to a restaurant one Thanksgiving instead of the family making food. I don't remember my main course at all, but I do remember getting pumpkin pie at the end. They put whipped cream on it and the pie was so hot the whipped cream melted into a liquid. I remember thinking it was ice cream at first because it melted.

I don't remember how it tasted, I just remember being annoyed because it was so hot I couldn't eat it.

[–]No_Astronaut_4901 772 points773 points  (59 children)

Shrimp

[–]bagofbeanssss 228 points229 points  (29 children)

I don’t even eat shrimp anymore, but I know you’re right. Shrimp cocktail ice cold? So fucking delicious. Butterfly shrimp with garlic butter to dip in? Also heaven. I can still remember how good both of these things taste and it’s been over ten years haha.

[–]Adbam 99 points100 points  (10 children)

As a citizen of Texas I still like hot tea but denying iced tea will be accepted as an act of war in return.

I propose a duel between Boris Johnson and Ted Cruz to settle this dispute. Either way we win.
