Aziz Ansari Rants Against the Term 'Foodie' and Reveals What He'd Name His Food Truck
"The word 'foodie:' stop it!" Aziz Ansari told Vogue about his least favorite food trend
“The word ‘foodie:’ stop it!” he told Vogue about his least favorite food trend. “People that like food shouldn’t get this weird fetish-y sounding thing. Call the people that don’t care what they eat ‘food bozos.’ ”
And if not a foodie, Ansari certainly cemented he at least has food on the brain often, reciting “I’m hungry” in six different languages: Spanish, French, Japanese, English, Tamil and Italian, the latter which he said he learned while researching the script for the second season of Master of None. The language and cuisine clearly rubbed off on him, and he said he would name his hypothetical food truck “Aziz’s Lasagna.”
Other key facts he rattled off? His favorite fast food is at Chick-Fil-A (“which makes the controversy so heart-breaking”) and his Netflix character Dev’s Tinder pick-up line: “Going to Whole Foods, want me to pick you up anything?”
