* In ''Film/DemolitionMan'' the main character John Spartan is forced, along with his companions, to take a trip into the city's sewers where rebels live. To try to dispel some of the suspicions that the sewers' inhabitants are directing at them, he orders a hamburger (and pays for it with someone else's Rolex). Halfway through eating it, he is reminded by one of his companions that there are no cows underground. He asks the vendor where the meat comes from, and is told it's rat meat. He pauses for a moment, then cheerfully resumes eating, stating it's the best burger he's had in years.

* Inverted in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}''. Andalites don't have tongues, so when they morph into humans they risk becoming addicted to delicious human food. They also think motor oil and cigarette butts are delicious.
