What's the point of the veggies?
Pronounced "pass tee" was a common lunch for miners because they had to eat with filthy hands and the crust on the outside gave them something to grip. they just ate around the part that was being held and then threw that part away.
and the best way fer fixin' shrump.
We actually have lots of great food too.

You only say "wit." Otherwise you are immediately pegged as a tourist.
How could I forget eastern NC barbecue?! I seem to have a pig theme going.
who knows it's pork o'clock somewhere
Breakfast burritos and Sonora dogs. Not unique but still VERY tasty
Chicago "pizza" and Italian beef sandwiches. Pizza in quotes only because, although tasty, it's a bit different from a flatbread with various toppings that is cooked in a few minutes.
Hawaii- Spam(!) musubi (from McDonalds, no less too!)
I'd say that is as local as Dunkin donuts or Chick Fil A
From eastern NC, obviously barbecue. From western NC, something similar that is still pretty good, but too red. Also Bojangles, you're welcome.
Was in Cincinnati a couple of weeks back and saw "goetta", which I now know is smashed up breakfast sausage + oats and a few other minor things, herbs and such, then cooked back together into a casserole. Never heard of it anywhere else I've been.
Obviously Pizza and BBQ deserves it's own thread, so I'll skip that.
But I do like:
Baltimore Pit Beef Sandwiches (which I don't consider to be a style of BBQ)
Steamed Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs and Real Maryland Style Crabcakes
Danish Kringles from Racine WI
Italian Pit Beef Sandwiches from Chicago (favorite is Johnnies in Elmwood Park)
Montreal bagels (I'm not a fan of Smoked meat sandwiches, or poutine for that matter)
+1000 on NM Hatch chiles, specifically a hatch chile burger
An "It's It" Ice Cream treat from San Francisco (and surrounding areas)
Philadelphia Hoagies and Cheesesteaks (stay out of the touristy areas for the best)
Burgerville started in Vancouver WA in 1961. It's the best fast food chain I've found, with lots of tasty Northwest locally-sourced treats. But unless you're along the I-5 corridor between Chehalis WA and Albany OR, fuggeddaboutit.
Tried one for the first time last week, a traditional pastie at Roy's Pasties and Bakery Shop in Houghton. Very good! Cheese curds are awesome as well.
I'll add poutine and pierogis to the list.
Saumagen and white asparagus here.
Yummy, but how do you explain it to the elves?
I had some Eskimo friends that tried to get me to eat Walrus flippers. The ones that they wrapped in tundra grass and then buried for a number of days. Then they boil them and eat them. That stuff kills white people so I passed.
I did try muktuk once. It was like eating rubberized barf.
Ensenada invented the Fish Taco. Big seafood town.
Tijuana, just an hour drive away, invented the Cesar Salad.
I si what Beard just did there.
Goetta in Cincinnati. Trail Bologna in farm country of NE Ohio. Primanti's in Pittsburgh. Awful-Awful in Rhode Island.
Some would call NY Pizza a unique food and not in a good way (this is where Scott M's input would be helpful....)
And, of course, chicken fried steak in Texas (with gravy)
I forgot WI Fish Boils on Fridays. https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/fish-boil-recipe-1938074
Where do you find the stuff? I see the factory sign on 101 south of KSFO but I don't recall seeing it in stores.
With a name that is so easily transmogrified simply by adding an "sh" to the middle, I wondered if it was exceptional ice cream.
It's been years since I've been out there, but I found them in Safeways. It's basically a chipwich dipped in dark chocolate, but replace the chocolate chip cookie with an oatmeal cookie. It's a regional thing, but apparently there are a handful of places in the northeast that you can get them now, because nothing is truly regional anymore.
Shrimp and grits..... Charleston SC
With a Bloody Mary and egg for breakfast.
Here in North Dakota, Knoephla (yeah, try pronouncing that one....it's "nef-lah"...lol) is a dish I'd never heard of or tried before moving here. It's pretty good, but don't even think about eating it if you're counting calories
Before @EdFred posted that, I was gonna say it sounds almost like a pasty.
I had to look that one up- looks like chicken dumpling soup. Also looks tasty.
We have Tony packos.
Yep those Hungarian hot dogs that Klinger talked about on mash. They're good. Just a little pricey 2 for$6.99 when on special.
My favorite, breakfast tacos made from pork salivary glands, lymph nodes, (chorizo) and scrambled eggs, in a flour tortilla.
Of course, there's also potato and egg, bacon and egg, refried bean and egg, or any other combination you'd like. Salsa to taste.
(Word of caution) If you use the drive thru, don't sit the sack on the seat. Good tacos will leak red grease on your seat covers and ruin them.
Not the imitation crap they made on Cooks Country, or the garbage dished out by Taco Bell.
I found the most amazing Schäufele in Lehrberg, near Ansbach. https://www.gaststaette-kapellenstube.de/
You must go there!
Spargel... I'm going to miss it!
Jede Tag ist Spargeltag!
Germans are like "Bubba" Blue when it comes to their Spargel. Spargelsuppe, gebraten Spargen, gekochter Spargel, Spargel-Quiche... and so on.
Central NYS - "Utica Greens" - many variations, but basically sauteed escarole w/ proscuitto, hot peppers, bread crumbs, and pecorino. MUCH better than it sounds.
Nashville - "Hot Chicken" - Basically a hot spicy greasy chicken breast served on a slice of white bread. Again..better than it sounds, and some places make it as hot as even the most nuclear version of Buffalo wings.
Ceviche - listed just 'cause I love it. Fresh fish, lime juice, cilantro, jalapenos, and maybe some onion, w/ Yucateca green or black hot sauce. I get upset when folks start trying to get groovy and stir in guacamole or other stuff to make it look less like chopped raw fish.
Hattaras chowder - clams, broth, and a few potatoes. Tastes like clams..a good thing.
Stinkflipper and Muktuk are the old school version of what the hipsters now think is cool, such as Surströmming...
I had some Muktuk mixed with blueberries in Bethel, since I was adopted by the Chief's family and it was actually pretty good.
I think Muktuk is one of those foods some people develop a like for. I never did. Did it have sugar and berries in it, like Eskimo ice cream.??
I had a mechanical in Noatak once. After I notified the dispatch and got the cavalry on the way for a rescue, the village agent took me to his house. He asked if I wanted a bite to eat. I said yeah, I could use a little something.
He got a small Styrofoam bowl out of the fridge, stuck a plastic spoon it in, which plastic utensils and Styrofoam dishes are considered fine china in the bush, and handed it to me. It looked and smelled like rotting seal intestines. I looked at it, smelled it and told him, "I don't mean to be rude or ungrateful, but I really don't think I can eat this.''
He laughed, took it from me and tossed it into the trash. He then told me, ''Yeah, we don't eat this crap either. My wifes grandparents visited this weekend and they brought their own traditional Eskimo food. They don't like what we eat...''
The smaller version in New England are called steamers. Growing up as a kid in NYC we called steamers **** Clams never imagining people ate them. The way you found **** clams was to walk the beach at low tide and stamp your feet and then watched for the water to squirt out of the sand. In New England they call that thing sticking out of the clam a "neck" I think the **** clam moniker better describes the appendage coming out of the shell ****= a 4 letter word for taking a leak
During Spargel season I think they have it in the cafeteria every day of the week in some form. My area is Spargel und Erdbeere land.
