Ohhhhhh you mean Muddy Buddies haha! I’ve never heard it called Puppy Chow!
Avocados- I’ve heard that they’re absolute crap in most other US states.
In SoCal: Fish tacos, California burritos- burrito with french fries inside (which aren’t in NorCal nearly half as much and I don’t like them but my friends in SoCal all do.
NorCal: Oysters (my SO recently vetoed all oyster recommendations for NOLA because we have great oysters here and no recent oil spills), SF sourdough, Ghirardelli ice cream, Clover dairy products, WINE (Preferably from Dry Creek and Anderson Valley), Marin French Cheese- brie, I;m blanking right now… it’s 1:40AM and I’ve been studying the past 4 hrs.
Also agree with PP about In-N-Out, but now that I’m far away from Del Taco I miss how many there were in SoCal.
Wild Rice ^^^^
Tater Tot Hot Dish ^^^^
Honey Crisp Apple ^^^^
I’m hungry for all this food!!!
Welsh things I love – Bara Brith Fruit loaf, quite often served in funerals -amazing! My Nain makes the best. Leek and Potato Soup with a ton of white pepper -mmmmmmm. Lobscows – which is cheap lamb cuts boiled with carrots swedes, onions and potatoes and eaten wi th a ton of bread and butter. Black pudding (Blood pudding) and bread and butter pudding – ahhhh lush!
Greek things I love. DH’s family are from central Greece and were refugees to the area from Minor Asia at the beginning of the 20th century. They have a dish called armia which is pickled cabbage baked in the oven with rice, fatty pork and loads of paprika. Fave sweet thing is Milk Pie – which is like an egg custard but loads better!
Well I’m here in good ‘ol Georgia…but I’m not huge into Southern foods with the exception of:
CORNBREAD and Williamson Bros. BBQ!! With any luck I’ll be chowin’ down on pulled pork and brunswick stew on my wedding day 😉
We have HoneyDew Donuts (yummm) and who doesn’t love getting a coffee frappe? Cranberries are a must during holiday baking (fresh off the bog), a Boston Cream Pie is too, I ask for one every year on my birthday.
And to get back to seafood, a clam bake on the beach-throw it all in, lobsters, mussels, ears of fresh corn, scallops, clams, fiddler crabs- is the best way to end the summer. Make sure you find lots of seaweed before you begin!
Toronto is such a melting pot of different cultures that our “regional” favourites are actually just the result of other ethnicities bringing their foods over and it catching on. The only other thing I can think of that hasn’t been mentioned already is STREET MEAT!! I think it’s the #2 choice of food after drinks at the bar (right after poutine)
I can’t think of any really “regional” foods for rural NW PA, just local ones from my hometown.
New York hard rolls. Not NJ hard rolls, not upstate hard rolls, not CT hard rolls. Really NY hard rolls. Preferrably with bacon, egg and cheese on them but just a hard roll with butter is fine too.
