Not really a phobia, but when I go to a restaurant I am hesitant to try something new. It is mostly because it is a rare occasion that I consider a treat, and it is expensive. I don't like trying new food, when it is expensive. I will typically stick to stuff I am familiar with and know I enjoy. Unless someone I know suggests it to me, then I will probably give it a try. If they are eating with me, all the better, they can give me a sample of their food.Does anyone else suffer from this phobia?
If it is free, I'm all in though. I am willing to experiment with different foods. The same can be said for when I go to a buffet, I'll try new things - unfortunately due to covid that has been a while for me though.
