Which would you rather eat first? I'm assuming you have a choice of either because there's a chef in the crew deck... or he's just cooking replicated ingredients...

I prefer cooked fresh food (I think they're called "A" rations in the military). True the stuff can be expensive and you have to store it in special conditions to keep it fresh. But it tastes SO MUCH BETTER than the replicated stuff which I hear is bland. I believe there is a DS9 episode that tells us this... the quality of the Klingon Restaurant's food went down due to a supply blockade and the establishment being forced to use replicaters as a result...

So I'm sure Captain Archer had the right idea when he was given the choice between replicated and fresh cooked food.
