The things we've eaten for years have once been new to us too, and the problem is one of being locked in our ways. You can get to know variety better if you try something different every once in a while, and choose the new stuff you really want.
There is no point in slamming your head against a wall of bricks trying to cultivate a taste for something you don't want. Yet you're never going to know if you like it until you actually try it. It is particularly true with regard to foreign cuisine. It may look different because it is consumed daily by millions of people, so it can hardly be harmful. Taking a leap of faith and trying another food would not be your downfall, so why not try something new once a week and shock yourself how much you love it?
