You can't forget to mention a pork roll, (taylor ham), egg and cheese sandwich on a hard (Kaiser) roll.

With a slice of raw onion it is a breakfast favorite.

I’m with you for a deep dish if that is the craving, and you are right Chicago is it. We used to drive up to Chicago on weekends for pizza and a baseball game.

Tony Packo’s in Toledo, Ohio has been serving authentic Hungarian food since 1932. Jamie Farr who played “Maxwell Klinger” in the TV series M*A*S*H gave Tony Packo’s Cafe worldwide fame when he often boasted and craved about Packo’s having the greatest Hungarian hot dogs. They are made from a special recipe using a flavorful Hungarian sausage and they are delicious.

 

At the other end of the state in Cincinnati, Ohio is home to Skyline Chili. It was founded by Nicholas Lambrinides a Greek immigrant in 1949. Skyline chili is not like your typical chili con carne. It is usually served over spaghetti with a unique appealing secret sauce that I think has a hint of cinnamon added to it. You can top it with cheese or onions. Delicious!

Jersey tomatoes. There's nothing quite like them anywhere in the country.

What's your favorite regional food in the U.S.?

 

ANY MEAL in NEW YORK city.

 

Go into a Pub anywhere in the city.  It is the best "pub food" in the country.

 

Go into a Chinese resturant in the city.  It will give you the best, chinese, you ever had.  Ditto every ethnic category, Italian, ( Mama Leone's), Greek, ( any resturant named Zorba's),  Ethiopian,  Mexican, you name it.

 

It is all created by people from the source country, who use the freshest ingrediants avaliable in the world.

 

I Love "NewYork" FOOD. 

 

Sincerely Glenn D Anderson

Who lives close enough to the city to appreciate the gift.

@MaryW296161 Gotta admit--I'm a Chicago deep-dish pizza fan. I love NYC, but for pizza--Chicago's the yummiest.

New York pizza for sure. No where else makes it as well except Italy and ours is so different from theirs.

I would have to say one of my favorite regional foods are Philadelphia Steak and Cheese sandwiches. Although you can purchase them in other locations, they often taste the best from the City of Brotherly Love. A close runner up would be Maryland blue crabs!

I visited New Orleans in the springtime. If you are ever in the Big Easy, be sure to try a Beignet. Yum!

Do you have a favorite dish/regional specialty that's served only/primarily in one part of the country? What is it and where would we find it?
