Aziz Ansari Dishes on Tacos and Hating the Word ‘Foodie’

The ‘Master of None’ star reveals some of his food pet-peeves

Ansari also reveals that his favorite type of pasta is lasagna.

Aziz Ansari may be most well known as a comedian and actor, but he’s also a food lover, hosting his own web series, Food Club, in 2014 and investing in David Chang’s delivery service, Ando. In Vogue’s recent “73 Questions” series, Ansari spills on everything from his favorite fast-food place to the food trend he hates the most.

A minute into the interview, as Ansari whips up a smoothie with his NutriBullet, he reveals that even his nickname is food-related. According to Ansari, the kids of Amy Poehler, his Parks and Recreation co-star, call him “Turkey Sandwich.”

Ansari also says that the most delicious place in the world is Tokyo, that he likes Ricky’s Fish Tacos in Los Angeles, and that his favorite fast-food place is Chick-fil-A.

When asked about what food trend he hates the most, Ansari says he’s not a fan of the word “foodie.”

“Stop it. People who like food shouldn't get this weird fetish-y sounding thing. Call the people who don't care what they eat ‘Food Bozos,’” he says in the video.
