Sweet tea, as opposed to sweetened tea.
I didn't know there was a difference?

REAL Mexican food... NOT Tex-Mex.
That's what I was going to say. Also, sushi is big in California. Indian food is too, such as kabobs, tandoori chicken, butter chicken, samosas, naan (flatbread).

The part of Texas I live in is a bit of a culinary melting pot, but there are a handful of cuisines and dishes that are especially popular here.

- Cajun. We're close enough to Louisiana that Cajun food is quite popular, especially Cajun style seafood.

- Seafood. With the Gulf of Mexico a stone's throw away, fresh seafood is very popular, usually served breaded and fried, but it's easy to find it prepared grilled or with different ethnic influences.

- Asian. The Gulf of Mexico seafood industry has traditionally employed a lot of Asian people (lots of Vietnamese, but not exclusively) so it is easy to find a good bowl of pho and other non "American-Chinese" Asian dishes along the coast.

- Tex Mex. VERY popular. Enchiladas, burritos, tamales, Spanish rice, refried beans, tacos, nachos, fajitas, queso dip, salsa, and baskets of corn chips. Served with margaritas and beer (unless you're in a "dry" zone, in which there is plenty of iced tea). *As an aside, "sweet" tea is popular but there is almost always unsweetened or "plain" iced tea to be had too.

- MEX mex and other Latin. There is a very large Latin population here, especially Mexican, so you can find authentic food everywhere. From taco wagons to taquerias to more formal restaurants. This is completely different from Tex Mex. And with the proximity to the Gulf, you can find some amazing authentic seafood dishes too.

- Barbecue. Slow smoked over wood, mesquite is quite common, although hickory, pecan, and oak woods are popular too. Basted and served with a sweet sauce. Ribs, brisket, chicken, sausage, and pork loin are the most common cuts. Chopped beef brisket sandwiches with sauce are popular too.

- Steak. It is not snarky or unfair to say that people here are obsessed with beef. That means that we have some amazing steakhouses in the area. And even cheap steakhouses are popular, as is throwing one on the grill at home (not to be confused with barbecuing).

- Country/homestyle Cooking. And especially Chicken Fried Steak! Restaurants have been made or broken based on the quality of their chicken fried steak and the cream gravy served on top of it. You drive by a restaurant and see "CFS + MP + salad" posted on the sign as a daily special and you understand that means chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, and a salad.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I didn't know there was a difference?


The sweet tea that is popular in the south is seriously like tinted sugar water. It was "born" out of need in a time when tea was very expensive/scarce. They increased the sugar water to tea proportions. Often the sugar is disolved when the tea is hot, so that the amount of sugar can dissolve. It will have a brewed tea taste because of that, and is very, very sweet.

Runzas, kuchen, lutefisk, lefse, sauerkraut--all are 'regional' here (lots of people of northern European heritage,) but you won't see them on a lot of restaurant menus.

Then there is walleye. If you see walleye on a menu, and you like fish, order it! Yummy, yummy walleye. I never see anyone on any cooking shows using walleye, but it is very popular in this area (ND, SD, MN.)


You can add WI to that list with a strong German and Norwegian influence in parts of the state. My Norwegian hertiage is strong enough that I make my own lefse, but weak enough that I won't eat lutefisk. (Even the Man vs Food guy couldn't stomach it!)

Also in Wisconsin - brats. Not the obnoxious child brat that rhymes with cat, but brat that rhymes with rot. A type of sausage. Also, cheese curds, especially deep fried cheese curds (cheese curd is new cheese - the best curd is so fresh it doesn't have a date stamp on it, it has a TIME stamp). It even squeaks when you eat it.

The Erie, PA area is known for its Pepperoni Balls (a small roll with a piece of pepperoni baked inside.)



They also have what they call Sponge Candy which to me resembles a piece of hard orange insulation dipped in chocolate.



The Pittsburgh area serves sandwiches with french fries and coleslaw on them.

Why the attitude? Sure it's how it is cooked and what goes in it, but IME, in other places it's often cooked differently and made with ingredients that wouldn't be used here, sometimes because of lack of knowledge or availability and sometimes to suit local tastes.

I'm not talking about Taco Bell or a quesadilla you get at Chili's.

I grew up in CO but live in Omaha now.

Green chili. They pour that stuff on everything! Also Colorado pizza. Basically gigantic crusty pizza loaded with toppings.

In Omaha there is a strong Northern influence so runzas for sure (heck the fast food chain is based in Nebraska), kolaches, and the Reuben was invented here so it's a big deal if you have "the best".

Here in LA we have beignets, andouille sausage, boudin, crawfish, étouffée, jambalaya, maque choux, dirty rice, gumbo, bananas foster, pralines, and king cake to name a few


I think the only thing I haven't had on your list in the past week is the beignets, and we are getting those Friday night at Coffee Call. DH and DS had them on Saturday. Not fair.

Don't forget bread pudding. And shrimp po-boys. And dirty roast beef po-boys.

And, this is how we make hamburgers. It's a Cajun Shrimp Burger from Mason's Grill. Sorry about it being so large. I did that on purpose to make you drool. (I couldn't find a smaller size)

We also have awesome BBQ without vinegar or coleslaw. The coleslaw gets on the plate as a side.

From Wikipedia:

Connecticut is known for its apizza (particularly the white clam pie), shad and shadbakes, grinders (including the state-based Subway chain), and New Haven's claim as the birthplace of the hamburger sandwich at Louis' Lunch in 1900. Italian-inspired cuisine is dominant in the New Haven area, while southeastern Connecticut relies heavily on the fishing industry. Irish American influences are common in the interior portions of the state, including the Hartford area. Hasty pudding is sometimes found in rural communities, particularly around Thanksgiving.

I have no idea what hasty pudding is and have never attended a shad bake and I've lived here my whole life. It's true about the pizza though. I've never had similar pizza in any other state than NY!

I remember when I moved to GA being asked this. I was . Then I went to the Coca Cola museum in Atlanta and I sort of understood.

I also remember going to a restaurant that served something called a yellow jacket and asking what kind of tea they had meaning, iced tea, hot tea, unsweetened, sweetened, peach tea, etc. Then it was the waitress looking at me like She finally said "Well, we have large and small." It was SOOOOO sweet that it made my teeth ache. There was no unsweetened tea to be had.

I don't really know of anything regional to the DC metro area. We are such a melting pot that you can find everything and anything though.

Sydney has a few of it's own specialities. Sydney Rock Oysters are meant to be some of the best in the world (I don't eat them, but DH agrees). We also have Balmain Bugs, which apparently is a type of slipper lobster. (Seafood of all types is really popular. Nearly 50,000 tons of prawns were sold over the Christmas period.)

I AM from Louisiana, born in Monroe and lived in Ouachita and Jackson Parishes for the first 23 years of my life. I FINALLY got used to LA usually meaning Los Angeles, NOT Louisiana.

My first thought was, that isn't Los Angeles food, that is LOUISIANA food! Then I looked at the OP's location and realized that SHE knew what parishes are!!!

I STILL think parish has a nicer sound than county!

ETA: I forgot to mention a place I really miss, Grayson's BBQ just outside of Clarence in the Campti and Natchitoches area. Don't go there expecting it to taste like every other BBQ place. It isn't fancy and doesn't have a widely varied menu but what they have is great and apparently is still going strong. I especially remember that the buns were homemade and SO good!

Someone I knew in Colorado mentioned them to me when they found out I was from Louisiana and just recently, was talking to a friend HERE and he brought up Grayson's!

Virginia here and we are all about the country ham! And of course Brunswick stew which L.A. claims as well! And then there is the peanuts, but mostly on the coast!

Alberta is known for its beef.
