Urban Dictionary: Slang Terms About Food
I’m a fan of the Urban Dictionary, which breaks down urban slang for those of us too old to know first-hand what things like “shorty” or “hollaback” mean. Recently they’ve listed a few food-related terms that I found quite amusing:
econnoisseur: One who insists on the highest quality at the lowest price.
Now that’s the GrubGirl audience!
salsa f***ed: This phenomenon occurs when dining at a Mexican restaurant with a large group and the salsa is not distributed evenly throughout the table. The areas of the table that do not have ample amounts of salsa are “salsa f***ed.”
Being a food hoarder, I have both had that happen to me, and learned my lesson to make sure it never happened to me again.
