The bit a few pages after Kuraks comment definatly would support Kehlans comment It says that the resurant's patrons are mostly vulcanoid or off world with a quarter of the customers being Klingon. Also with the Mushy brussle sprout comment it supports that too. "Unlike humans who tend to cool all the flabour out of there dishes Vulcans geberally only cook it long enough to remove potential viruses and germs.They also had an appreciation for spice that surprised leskit". So i guess tha supports several ideas about klingon preferances being towards fairly strong dishes that tend towards the lightly (If at all) cooked

While my ideas on what Klingons eat or don't eat are very different from my personal real life tastes, I suppose the two are intertwined in that I wouldn't eat something as a Klingon that I wouldn't as a human. That being said, I tried sushi for the first time, because I was told that it would be cool to see a bunch of Klingons eating in a sushi bar, and there was one next door to the hotel where we were at a convention. After that it became a tradition to have sushi in full make up at least once during every convention, which lead me to eating sushi on a fairly regular basis to this day.

It is funny that McDonalds is mentioned because that is a pet peeve of mine, when you see a large group of Klingons gathered and they are eating fast food off of the paper wrappers. Nothing ruins the illusions we are trying hard to create than something like that. If you are going to drink Pepsi, put it in a mug, if you are going to eat a Big Mac, take it off the paper and get your hands dirty like a Klingon.

As for Vegetables theere is a klinonasse word flansopra that means leaf eater and is a very serious insult. That leads me to believe that leafy vegetables are probably out. I think that grains and root vegetables might be possibilities, but probably not as stand alone dishes. I can see Potato Bread or possibly something like a stew with various chunks of roots mixed with the meats.

     Yes, I'm with Kvoth on this one.  The presence of a restaurant in certain sectors of the center of governance of an empire does not imply that the restaurant is for the native government.   Foreign dignitaries need to eat too.

    Not only is the idea of eating leafy greens shunned by speakers of klingonaase, it's also shunned by speakers of tlhIngan Hol.   The word used for such food is tI (vegetation), and it is one of the few words that end in a vowel without a glottal stop.  This unusual form of a long dragging vowel is said to be as displeasing to the Klingon ear as eating vegetation is to the stomach.

    Of course we know grains are somehow an important part of the Klingon diet.  TOS:"The Trouble with Tribbles" and Pawns and Symbols, as regular readers remember as a novel sequel to the episode, made it pretty clear that grains are on the menu, but not exactly how they are prepared and served.

Maybe stale sushi

We once had a celebrity foodie over, one of those guys who's eaten everything in his travels. Predictably, he was asked what his worst food experience was. He said it was in Iceland, and he had marinated shark.

As for liver --- you wouldn't eat the bio-filter off your transporter so why would you eat the filter from a cow or anything else ? Tongue

Or were trying to avoid the kinds of blindness that accompany Vitamin A deficiencies.

Don't get me wrong I love a slightly seared t-bone or some other nice thick cut but all kinds of veggies have vit "A" too sweet potato, carrots, butter, pumpkin, eggs, peas, gee I am getting hungry.

I'm with Nagaloo on the liver.... would rather go blind...

Funnily enough was in Vienna (Austria) for a few days and we ate in a local restauarant.. one of the dishes listed as local food was Heart/Lung hash.  No, I didnt try it.  Suspect a Klingon might like it though

I think what I/ A klingon wouldn't eat also may depend entirley on circumstances like whether he or she knew what it was. I remember my dad telling me when i was younger that he in many contries had eaten what would considered horriffying things but as he hadn't been told it was just food. Having found out after the fact it was simply a case of "Ah right..." It worked getting me to be not quite as fussy aswell so it may work for a warrior. Simply present it and wait.
