I go to the fanciest restaurants in the world and try them out. I like to see these chefs that are wizards do their thing. I like two types of food: cheap fast food – In-N-Out Burger, Taco Bell, stuff like that – or expensive food. Anything in between just bothers me.

I like to take a day off and enjoy fast food for what it is. I have to say that in New York, I’m really partial about taco trucks. I mean, I really can’t handle it.

Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.
My biggest pet peeve is when you go to a fine restaurant, and it’s like a mausoleum inside. Good food should be joyful. There should be laughter and chatter, not people sitting there like they’re in a funeral-parlor waiting room.
