Removing the I in "Food Delivery"

The other evening came the dreaded moment of choosing delivery dinner #food, and living in Brooklyn you can pretty much have food from about 10 countries a few blocks away. And I hate choosing!

So I came up with a stupid idea: I would get no food including the #letter "I". Why this specific letter? Because I wasn't in the mood for pizza nor Italian, and both words contain an "I".

It turns out many food item names contain an "I", so this turned out pretty successful to curb the amount of choices. Consider this:
  • No Italian
  • No Indian
  • No Mexican
  • No Thai
  • No Chinese
  • No American
  • No Fries
  • No Wings
  • No Pizza
  • No Bread/Mozzarella Sticks
  • No Chicken
  • No Vegetarian
  • No Quinoa
  • No Rice
  • No Ice Cream
  • No Milkshake
  • No Swiss Cheese
  • No Onions (Rings)
  • No Olives
  • No Souvlakis
  • No Sushi
  • No Sashimi
  • No Teriyaki
  • No Hibachi
  • No Bulgogi
  • No Ribs
  • No Mayonnaise
  • No Pepsi
  • No *Berries
  • No Sparkling Water

I ended up ordering a steak burger with cheddar cheese (but no onions nor fries) and a side of Mac&Cheese (although macaroni...).

And for you non native English speakers, what forbidden letter would kill most of the food choices in your #language?
 
@hannes Some people do have seriously to much #money, throwing that amount of #food away. We only throw emptied boxes away (in proper recycling bins) and eat all of it's content.
 
#opensource software became very common. Meanwhile patents are still used to gain more control over our basic needs such as #food.

There's an initative in #germany wanting to change that:
