What is the dream dish for a Goth?

What is the dream dish of a goth? How to please a goth friend that will come to your house for dinner? Is Goth food based on veganism? Why is Goth food black?

Today we're going to reveal everything on Skull Action, whether you're a Goth yourself or just curious about it. We're going to enlighten you (just the right amount 🤭) in the Gothic world’s darkness.

Even though a large part of the gothic people are vegetarians, you can say they eat everything. But in recent years, it is black food that has been under projectors, and some of it has been proudly proclaimed "Gothic.”

In this article, we will explore together:

  • What is Gothic food made of 
  • What foods are proclaimed "Gothic"?

What are the blackest and most seductive dishes (yes, food can be hot 😉)

In short, by the end of this article, you'll be a pro of gothic meals, whether you prepare them yourself or let yourself be tempted by a good restaurant that prepares the dark "black-bagels.”

Let's eat ... Well, let's start (ooh, that's a bit hungry ??).

Of course, we begin with a little disclaimer. We can't say that all gothic people are the same. Each individual has his or her tastes and inclinations.

However, we will mention the most common Gothic eating habits, including a few recipes and foods.

According to the statistics, it is proven that Goths eat the same kinds of food as the so-called "normal" people. Obviously, in the category of "Super-goths,” some limit themselves to a strictly gothic diet. On the other hand, alternative cooking is a growing market that derives from the scary cupcakes to the Halloween inspired cuisine; it’s so vast that you can fill cookbooks with it.

Zoom on Black Food

This year we have seen different kinds of black food in some restaurants and even fast food outlets. And of course, this trend has been very successful, especially with gothic people; This said, the fashion for black food is not entirely new, and it is not unique to the West. Japan and Hong Kong are the pioneers of black food, while the Italians have been producing black spaghetti and risottos for some years now.

Despite this, one must admit that this tendency to infuse food artificially and even drinks gives us a small glimpse of a gothic soul’s darkness. So why not bite into the dark side of strength by trying some (or all) of these snacks, sweets, and drinks. Coming from the four corners of the globe, here are the most fascinating of them.

Goth black burger

The Goth Burger

The famous goth burger was first marketed in Japan by Burger King and McDonald's. After that, it was a great success when it was released for Halloween a few years ago.

The little that we can say is that this burger has squid ink, and charcoal was unanimously approved. And if you want to satisfy your hunger for Goth-Food, you can travel to places like Mumbai, Dubai, or Kuwait that offer their versions of this famous burger all year round.

We also offer you a derivative or rather a cousin of the Goth-Burger called the Goth-Bagel. These dark looking black bagels look like demon food. But don't be afraid, the bread is black,, but the chicken, chips, cheese, and vegetables are familiar to you.

After investigating, it was difficult to determine the exact origin of the charcoal ice cream. Since these black and creamy cones have now become easy to find because of their popularity, ice-cream sellers generally offer black ice exclusively at certain times of the year. But fortunately, the supermarkets are here! Thanks to them, you can get some at any time.

Little advice:  put your dark ice cream on a black waffle, satisfaction, and dark beauty guaranteed!
