The things that we have eaten for years were new to us once too, and the issue is one of being set in our ways. If you try something new every once in a while, you can become better acquainted with variety, and pick the new things that you really like.
There is no point in banging your head against a wall trying to develop a taste for something you know you do not like. However, you will never know if you like something until you actually try it. This is particularly true of International cuisine. It may look different, but millions of people eat it regularly, so it can hardly be poisonous. Trying a different food is not going to be the death of you, so why not try something new once a week and surprise yourself with how much you enjoy it?
