Default Regional Food

Having just moved from California to Arkansas, I'm giving up Date Shakes and Panaderia for Fried Catfish and Chocolate Gravy. What local foods are favorites that you can't get elsewhere?

Does anyone else have some regional favorites?

Living in Maine now, our local "favorites" are eh at best (in my opinion...no offense to those born here). "Italians" are basically just a ham & cheese sub with certain veggies and dressing; I'll take a meatball sub or turkey with mayo over that any day! Another are fiddleheads....immature ferns that taste a bit like brussel sprouts. I never took a shine to them. The lobster, though, gets my thumbs up.

Now, in Jersey, where I grew up, the best breakfast food ever, which may have in fact been served up on Olympus, was PORK ROLL. Man, I love that stuff so much, its unreal.

I don't know what counts as new york regional specialties. I love pastrami and katz's has the best http://www.katzdeli.com/ their brisket isn't too bad either but they charge extra for the gravy! I can't even finish a sandwich, but at least it allows you to continue the bliss into the next day.

Nathan's hot dogs are overrated. Does White Castle count as a regional speciality? I am surronded by those places and once in awhile, I get a great craving for them.

A lot of Italian food, good pizza, I grew up right by one of the best places in the city. I can say a great mecca for Italian food would be Arthur Ave. in the Bronx. We go there sometimes to get some delicious sandwiches (prosciutto, mortadella, mozzarella, lettuce and tomato, vingear all on crusty bread, yum!).

I forgot to mention most diners in the outer boroughs have this sandwich: it's chinese roast pork, served on garlic bread with lettuce and tomato with duck sauce on the side. I haven't seen it anywhere else in the country.
I always wanted to try fiddleheads but they look rather slimy to me. Are they slimy like okra?

I'm a fanatic for D'Anglelos Subs and they are a phenom only here in New England. In my opinion, Subway just doesn't even come close. You haven't lived until you've tried their Chicken Ceasar on a roll or their steak cheese and mushroom subs. Also there's a worst kept secret place here in Downtown Boston called 'The Sultan's Kitchen.' Best Middle Eastern food I've ever tasted anywhere, even the Middle East. Eat something from there at least once before you die.

I grew up in New Jersey, where every town had at least ONE place that made decent bagels, and plenty of all-night diners.

Here in Colorado, there are no diners at all (except for the occasional Gunther Toody's), and the bagels suck.

There's just nothing like a good old-fashioned all-night diner, IMHO. Like the one below - the Bendix Diner on Rt. 17 in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. It was there that the late Nancy Walker performed as Rosie in those old Bounty paper towel commercials.

For me, nothing says Toledo like Tony Packo's Cafe, like a chili sundae (chili, sour cream and cheese in a sundae glass with a cherry tomato on top) as an appetizer and their Hungarian sausage platter as the main course. That hardly leaves room for dessert, but I usually cram in a strudel anyway.


http://tonypacko.com/

When I travel I love to try the local specialities, like the mysterious Runza sandwich in Omaha, a genuine deep dish pizza in Chicago, and a mouth-watering Kansas City barbecue. Fresh lobster in Boston and salmon in Seattle are great too.

Default Three Syllables: Bar Be Que

I was raised with Texas Beef Brisket. Where ever I go, everyone has a different definition for BBQ. No-one has it wrong, they just have it with a different animal, different cut, and a different sauce. On my list of recipes to try before I die, or before I can't... move anymore.. is the red pepper bbq of the Carolinas.

LOL Fuzzy, my BF and I have decided that when we retire (HA!) or at least some time before we pass to the great beyond, we're going to take a roadtrip and visit all of the BBQ festivals in the south. We always drool over the Food Network specials about them.

I'd say Papaya King/Gray's Papaya-style grilled hot dogs are unique to New York. Other places have hot dogs, but they're not the same. Based on the Nathan's model (and I agree that Nathan's has slipped), they are all-beef, kind of small and salty and can be eaten without anything.

I'd say bagels are true to New York, but recently I've had decent ones outside the NYC metro area and the ones in NYC proper seem to get worse every year.

Real Jewish deli (corned beef, pastrami, brisket, tongue, etc) is hard to get outside metro NYC, and is vanishing here as well. The real ingredients are expensive and a pain in the ass to prepare and serve properly, so unless a place has enough customers to justify it, it just isn't worth it. Have you tried Second Avenue Deli (2nd Ave and 10th street)? They're my favorite and probably the last Kosher die-hard in Manhattan.

Tex-Mex style Mexican food. Hot, greasy, cheesy, meaty, and that's just the rice... wait until you get to the enchilada proper!

Good bagels are hard to find. I found pretty decent bagels in the Bronx but they are refered to as Montreal style. The people who work at the store also have major attitudes and I don't like to frequent places that have such disdain for all of their customers. I heard Katz's "imports" its pastrami from Albany!

Mmms.. I have been trying to think of what was really better in KY than anywhere else and I just noticed the answer sitting on our kitchen table.

Sorghum. Well I think the rest of the world calls it sorghum molasses, but here it is just sorghum.

Other things that come to mind are burgoo (tasty), hot browns (my bf is not a fan), and mint juleps (yum). I have to say our Bourbon balls are the best and my favorite KY food... Jam Cake. I prefer it without the caramel icing, because my granny never used it, but you will more than likely find it like that here.

Red-eye gravy and grits are everywhere else too. Apparently meat grease dumplins are unique to my hometown...but that is fine, we like to be a little unique.

gah... I almost forgot Derby Pie... imagine a pecan pie with chocolate in the bottom of it.

I can tell all of you about one place NOT to visit if you're ever in Southern Colorado - Conway's Red Top.

They feature a burger that's about eight inches in diameter. But they cook them for so long that they cook out all of the flavor. And the oversize buns fall apart, so you're left with a pile of tasteless slop on your place.

On the other hand, I can recommend Sonic - it's a drive-in chain here in the Southwest and the South. We've been to them in Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas, and the food is always good.

The picture below is a Super Sonic - a double cheeseburger that is out of this world.....

Regional Food - from the places I have lived recently

South Carolina - Red Rice- faintly sweet with sasauge and spices very tasty. Bene Wafers (sesame cookies crisp and delicious), Mustard based BBQ sauce on pulled pork(someone mentioned Red Pepper I never saw that) Typical sould food meals are everywhere, Near the coast the best fried shirimp I have ever had. Low country cooking is one of my favorite, frogmore stew- shrimp, sausage, potatos, corn all boiled in old bay seasoning....served in big steaming piles

California- Sacramento Area- Japanese food---- oh I miss the noodle soups, all things avacado----- the south is not too big on those things, enjoy them if you can find them

Alabama- Fried is what is done best, usually in the form of a Meat and Three, that is choose your meat, and it is served with three sides.... usually collard greens, macaroni and cheese (if you haven't had the baked mac and cheese done in the south run don't walk below the mason dixon line) and fried green tomatose, or if you are adventurous you can try the pineapple and cheese caserole. And you must never forget the boiled peanuts.... don't ask they are just good.............

Yes they are. I was visiting a company in southwest Omaha, and for lunch they took me to Runza. Apparently they think it's funny to take out-of-towners to Runza and watch them turn up their noses. Not me! I went straight for a Swiss Cheese Mushroom Runza Sandwich and it was terrific. I surprised a few people when I asked to go to lunch there again the next day. For dinner that evening they took me to Gorat's steakhouse in Omaha. Not much to look at, but outstanding steaks!

A friend of mine tells me that "chili" in the Midwest involves spaghetti, red sauce, and about a pound of cheese on top.

No sir. I will NOT have that.

I am a Texan, and for me, nothing touches the recipes subtly derived from Frank X. Tolbert's research into the subject. Chili to me is meat cooked in lots of spices until it's good and thick and chili-licious. Tomatoes can be added, sure, as can some onions. But watch out you don't make it a stew, now!

Current listening: "Texas Cookin'" by Guy Clark.

I've lived in New Jersey my whole life, and the two things that came immediately to mind were the two things already mentioned about New Jersey, pork roll and bagels in abundance.

I've learned not to eat pizza outside of New Jersey or New York. Every time I've had it in another state (which, granted, is not much), it couldn't compare.

Pork roll......

I forgot how much I missed that stuff. Here in Colorado, they've never heard of Taylor Ham (Trenton's gift to the world).
