what does Star Trek food taste like?

Give us your best guesses! How do humans perceive these alien foods and beverages?

Jumja stick = Sickly sweet, something like tamarind. Coheres together like a creamsicle but it's not really cold.

Romulan ale = Definitely hard alcohol, nothing like beer or "ale." So astringent that you can barely discern a taste at all. It's calibrated for Rommie taste buds. Mostly you just feel your mouth being set afire.

Tranya = Yummmmmm! Vaguely tropic fruity.

Kanar = Mildly sweet, very viscous compared with beverages humans are used to. Probably hard to stomach for humans. Intensely intoxicating, but for Cardies it's just a mild buzz.

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

Strangely enough, there is no Star Trek food that tastes like chicken.

But Ferengi tube grubs are surprisingly tasty, once you get past the idea that you are eating worms. Soft textured and mildly sweet, like calamari, with a spicy kick. Great in jambalaya.

Here's a little known fact. Which Earth food item is the most popular among alien cultures?

Answer: Beets.

Think about the way a strawberry tastes. Tribble is the exact opposite flavor.

I think Kanar would taste like rum, at least in my opinion. Hasperat sounds like it would be some sort of Greek dish. lol

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

I always imagined that tubegrubs would taste like witchety grubs or bogon moths (although I've not tasted either). Also another possibility is that tube grubs taste like Tasmanian scallops or Balmain/Moreton Bay bug - (all of which I've eaten at one time or another and are my favourite types of seafood).

Hasperat's probably more of an Italian-American dish. Something akin to a hot pepper cheese pepperoni roll. Minus the pepperoni.

I've always wondered about blood wine. Despite the predilections of Klingon cuisine, I've always taken the name to be figurative. Probably just a really potent red wine that fires up the blood.

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

Jumja sticks taste like a dirty Jolly Rancher

Romulan Ale tastes like Permafrost(the drink,not the auto fluid)

Tranya tastes like Tang

Kanar tastes like Aqua Velva

Chicken is bland because its usually cooked.

Tube grubs taste like Gagh, which tastes like your eating live worms.

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

ever wonder if the only thing Bajorans ate was hasperat? Seems like every time they mention any Bajoran cuisine, it's hasperat this, hasperat that.

There's not much meat on a tribble. They're all bones and ovaries.

They make a nice savory stock, though.
