 A: Que tal um açaí?
How about some açaí?
  B: Obrigado, eu não gosto de açaí?
Thanks, I don’t like açaí.
  A: Como que não gosta, todo mundo gosta de açaí.
What do you mean you don’t like it, everyone likes açaí.
  B: Ah é?, Bom, pra mim ele tem um gosto meio estranho.
Oh yeah? Well, for me it has kind of a strange taste.
  A: Nem com banana e granola?
Not even with banana and granola?
  B: Não, nem assim. Como dizem, ‘gosto não se discute.’
No, not even that way. As they say, ‘you can’t argue about taste.’
