    Default The food tastes of sweetness.

    "The food tastes of oninon." is absolutely right. I think.

    but how about "The food tastes of sweetness. ?

    Is it right? Is it awkward?

    Yeah, it's a bit awkward.

    Better to say that 'the food is sweet' or 'the food tastes sweet'.

    If you wanted to use the word 'sweetness', you could say that 'there is a sweetness about the food/curry/wine'
