What's a signature food only found in your area?

  1. In the Tucson/AZ area, we have Sonoran hot dogs - Mexican style hot dogs wrapped in bacon, fried, topped in awesome stuff, and thrown in a light toasted bread.

    I guess the influence is spreading to other areas, but it originated in Tucson and we have the best ones :)

    Had to do a quick search on that--described as A delectable Southern specialty of our smoked Gouda cheese grits smothered with a sauce of fresh cream, sauteed Gulf shrimp, spinach, portobello mushrooms, applewood-smoked bacon, garlic, and shallots."

    Must. Have.

    hmm maybe, but I think that's just a Southern thing - all of the South.
     
  13. Rick I gotta have some of that too.

    Food passaround?

    I miss a good mangrove snapper sandwich from Central Florida, but here in Washington I console myself with Nanaimo bars.

    Pizza Hawaii? :D

    But seriously, we do have quite a bit out here, for example

    Poke - raw, cubed fish (most often ahi = tuna) with different spices
    Poi - taro root 'puree'
    Lomi salmon - finely cubed salted salmon with tomatoes and onions
    Kalua pig - originally cooked in the imu (=earth oven)
    Pipikaula - like a local jerky variety

    And, of course,

    Spam musubi - spam between 2 layers of rice, wrapped in nori

  19. Yep, big fat +1 here. All wrapped up in douche and pretense thanks to the overabundance of culinary school students/interns/grads...............
    ......might as well be a food desert.
