Spinoff: Favorite Regional Foods

In the North/South thread posters mentioned Fluff and Sweet tea. What are your favorite regional foods?

I am Midwestern, Wisconsin to be precise. Deep fried cheesecurds! I will admit that I have only lived in Wisconsin so maybe they have these elsewhere, but these are a staple of county fairs!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE sweet tea, I try to make it, but it just isn't the same!

Well, I don't live there anymore, but in Pittsburgh it was chipped ham and perogies.
Gumbo and cajun pistolettes!!!

Oh I love me some chipped ham, ruralcurls. My grandma lived in Rochester and I was hooked on it by the time I was 2.
I am Midwestern, from the Springfield, IL area. We are known for our horseshoes. Follow this link to see a picture of a pork tenderloin horseshoe from my favorite pub, D'Arcy's Pint, in Springfield. (Pork tenderloin is another regional favorite - we're from Illinois. We eat pigs.)

Tex-Mex and BBQ. Only thing I couldn't get in NYC that I truly missed.

I'm also happy to be able to have Sonic and Whattaburger again.
And now that I'm back in Texas, I miss NYC pizza, bagels, and coffee.
i'm in Cali (so cal) so i'd have to say the following..

Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles
mexican, of course
vietnamese - little saigon is down here....
common sense is not common.....
CG since Jan 2009.....
No hair color since 2007..i've stopped fighting the greys....they always win....
3a/some 2c
clarify - ACV rinse
co-wash - NGTT calming conditioner or suave naturals tropical coconut
rinse-out - sally's GVP cond. balm
dt - sally's GVP k-pak or lustrasilk
leave in & styling - KCKT, KCCC, HESMU mousse
styling loves - DIFFUSING!!! & plopping
Blue Bell Ice Cream, Country Baskets at Dairy Queen, Fried Okra, Carne Guisada.

Slice of NYC pizza yummmmmmmmmmm
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.
Home:
Sonoran Mexican food. Sonoran hot dogs. Steak. Indian fry bread, and various other foods made with locally grown spices and grains. Yum!

Elsewhere:
Nothing compares to a NY bagel, or a bagel made by someone from NYC who really understands what they're supposed to be like! Maine lobster spoiled me for lobster anywhere else. And just fresh fish in general - living inland, I don't get fish straight off a boat! A nice SF cioppino is always great, too.
I miss the Indian restaurant I used to go to in NH. And I miss the Thai restaurant I ate at frequently while in Ridgecrest, CA, for work.

Now that I live in STL apparently toasted ravioli is an STL original, though I've had it elsewhere. (?) But I do LOOOOVE me some Imo's pizza.

Philly cheesesteaks! You can get cheesesteaks outside of the Philly area, but they are mostly travesties. Ugh.

Nothing is better than a cheesesteak from Pat's or Jim's (never Geno's).

From NJ:

Pizza made by a guy named Tony or Nunzio, not from Pizza Hut.

In North Jersey, a "Sloppy Joe" is not ground beef in BBQ sauce on a bun. It's a deli sandwich with meat, cheese, cole slaw and Russian dressing on 3 thin slices of rye bread. I can only eat a half.

I don't care for it, but a classic NJ breakfast from a deli or coffee shop would be Taylor ham (pork roll), egg and cheese on a roll. Guaranteed artery-clogger. Taylor ham is only found in NJ to my knowledge.

I'm from the South but live in Kansas City now. In the South there are many things that I miss, fresh seafood being among those things. I loved fried okra and the gumbo as well.

In KC it's the barbeque and frozen custard.

Texas: I forgot Mrs. Baird's Bread

Cape Cod: Clam Chowder, I've had it elsewhere but nothing compares.
Fresh seafood, sweet tea, grits, and fried pickles.

My grandmother is from NJ....she used to bring us back pork rolls. So good!!!!! My dad would fry em up with saurkraut. Drool......

Ok...my faves, the seafood in Maine is KILLER (as mentioned by NetG, off the boat is best), whoopie pies, italians (kind of like a hoagy I guess, ham, cheese, pickles and your fave toppings with sandwich oil. mmmm) Frozen Custard (though I know they have this in the midwest too) and Cole Farms dressing. That is straight out of my hometown. And pretty much whatever my Nana makes. Low bush blueberries.....

Ok...there's a lot of good food in Maine/NE.
Pizza, definitely. Whenever I'm away for a while, it's the first thing I have to eat when I get home (which is kind of funny, because I don't even eat it very often!).

And bagels, of course.

From my college days in New Orleans, I really miss good gumbo and jambalaya.
