The things we've eaten for years have once been new to us too, and the issue is one of being set in our ways. You can get to know variety better if you try something new every once in a while, and pick the new things you really like.
There is no use in bashing your head against a wall of bricks trying to cultivate a taste for what you don't want. You'll never know if you like it, though, until you finally try it. This is especially true with respect to international cuisine. It may look odd because it is consumed daily by millions of people, so it can hardly be poisonous. It's not going to be your death to take a leap of faith to try another meal, so why not try something new once a week and shock yourself with how much you love it?
