We have fat foods! Haha. Deep dish/stuffed pizza which I do like, although I can rarely finish even one piece and only get it maybe twice a year because it’s just so.much.cheese.

and Chicago style hot dogs which I never get because I’m a vegetarian.

I’m not sure what all we’re officially famous for, but Wisconsin is, of course, the dairy state, so we have plenty of cheeses.  There’s Miller Beer and Point Beer (and many others). There’s also a lot of cranberries and there are places in Wisconsin that have annual cranberry festivals.

I’ve wondered this before because I can’t think of regional food for LA. We have good fresh fish and lots of sushi. Vegan food is easy to find. Then there’s things like Dodger dogs . . . mmmmm but you have to pay the extra dollar and walk to a level that grills them instead of the regular ones because it’s soooo much better. Phillipe’s French Dip, Randy’s Doughnuts (which I just posted about, I’ve never been but really want to go and of course IN N OUT!!! My Fiance moved here had his first and kinda went hmmm they’re good but I dunno if they’re that great and then he said it was kinda like crack you just had to have more and more and more and then you realize that they truly are an unbelievable burger! We were even consider having them at the wedding.

NY-style Cheesecake


Dirty water hot dogs

Those nuts they sell on the street

Halal street meat

Pizza is my favorite in NYC.  I really can’t eat pizza anywhere else now because the crust just seems so thick and sugary.

I don’t think Ohio is known for too much except maybe buckeye candies. They’re little balls of peanut butter and powdered sugar dipped in chocolate. Ridiculously good. MMMMMM

Don’t know if we’re really known for anything (besides Tex-Mex and BBQ?) but I will say that I feel sorry for all the northern states that are missing out on having a Whataburger!

@Cricket: I was thinking the same thing! Phillipe’s is super yummy, but I’m not sure how famous it is outside of LA.

Dodger Dogs are honestly one of the worst things I’ve ever eaten. I don’t really like hot dogs, and if I do eat them they have to be all-beef/kosher. Dodger dogs are neither 🙁

In-n-Out has too many locations outside SoCal to be considered an LA food anymore :/

I’ve come to the conclusion no one comes to LA for the fabulous food, just all the fabulous weather 😀
