White pizza! I grew up on the East Coast and it was a staple there – all the pizza places made it. Now out here in the midwest nobody knows what I’m talking about. They think it’s just plain pizza without sauce – WTF? No! It has broccoli, feta, olive oil, and spices – super yum!

Deep dish pizza! Unfortunately I can’t eat it anymore because I found out I have a gluten intolerance, but Chicago seriously has the BEST deep dish pizza ever!

@GreenEyedMoon:  No peanut butter in Japan?  That is crazy!

When I went to the States I missed mince pies (meat pies) from home and also a hot cup of tea it tastes different.

Also we are pretty spoiled here with the seafood, I know you can get it everywhere but I guess we take paua for granted (abalone) we always have it in our freezer as its easy for DH to dive for but very expensive overseas.

This thread is so interesting- I had no idea there were so many other Gulf Coasters on the boards 🙂

I live in NY so I can pretty much get almost any type of food that I want at any time.  Surprisingly, I looooove the food down South.  Maybe it’s just the fact that it’s different, but Cook Out has the best burgers, quesadillas and milkshakes.  I sure do miss it when I’m up North. That and cheese grits!  Why don’t NYers like cheese grits?  Grits are so delicious!!

We have these halal trucks everywhere here in NY with their super delicious meat and rice over salad combos that they smother in this must-be-crack-infused white sauce.  OMG… I will MISS THAT when I go down South. 

When leaving NY, I’ll miss:  halal trucks, good bagels and real pizza (it’s not the same outside of NY and I don’t really like deep dish, I like the thin kind better).

@misspeanut:  if it’s cold it doesn’t dissolve though. In Japan, they gave you these little syrup cups that was liquid sugar you add to cold drinks. GENIUS!

Living in Korea now, after living in NYC. I love Koren food but I can’t tell you how much I miss real NYC pizza… but then also falafel, spanish food, and greek food… man did NYC ever spoil me in terms of eating!! Food was totally the thing I spent all my spare monies on living there…

Well being canadian, traveling to the USA can be really frustrating when it comes to food lol. Like, we live on Iced Tea here, but it is really hard to get the proper stuff down in the states. Some places have the real sweetened iced tea, others just have cold tea with sugar, which is not the same thing. Even the fast food menus are different in the states then here, at the same restaurants. There are lots of things i could think of.

Although I mostly grew up in TX, I was born in upstate NY (Rochester) and went back every year for the summer. A food I’ve never seen anywhere else that I LOVED was “white hots,” a particular kind of hot dog. OMG they were so. freaking. good. And I couldn’t get them except when I was visiting family in Rochester.

Now I’m a vegetarian so I wouldn’t eat them anyway, but jeez I loved those things. They were probably made out of crack and baby unicorns.

@SpecialSundae:  Do you have a recipe for the dough you use?! Ahh I would be so excited if I could eat deep dish again! They have a lot of options for thin crust Girlfriend pizza here, but no deep dish!
