U.S. President Barack Obama has been said to be open-minded when it comes to trying new food.

This president is an adventurous diner, CNN's Ed Henry told Politico last December.

The president really loves the short ribs when he goes to Alex Wong's restaurant. He sometimes tries to get a second helping.

Indeed, the photos of Obama eating at various public events show him consuming many different types of foods, including donuts, popcorns, hotdogs, ice cream, beer, chicken and more.

Below are the photos of Obama eating:
