Delicious foods exclusive to your region...

Postby discspeed » Sun Oct 25, 2009 5:12 pm

Its stone crab season here on the west coast of FL...I'm still fairly new down here, but imo the stone crabs are the most delicious thing to come out of the sea. I like them better than lobster...Anyway, I know most people have never had stone crab and people pay ridiculous money for the ones that do make it out of state.

What food/foods do you have in your region that you can't get, or at least its not quite the same, anywhere else?

I love picking mushrooms in Oregon. Some even make me see things! It is even better when I'm playing a round of disc and find some tasty fungi on the ground or on a tree.

Cherry Mash are a mid-western thing, Biscuits and Gravy and a chicken fried steak is a very southern thing. Onion Burgers are a central OK thing that kick ass.

I had stone crab sushi when I was down in Savannah last year and it was the bomb. It was the most expensive roll on the menu but it was totally worth it.

mustard based barbecue is pure shit garbage. it tastes like vomit and dumpster juice put together. Frank I know you're not from NC originally and I see that some sumbitch has led you astray. Go to Smithfield Chicken and Barbecue and get some delicious vinegar based barbecue and see the light.

I like me some eastern style barbecue also but damn if I don't love me some mustard barbecue sauce. My least favorite bbq sauce is anything ketchup based.

p.s. Smithfield's is shit and you need to eat at some local bbq places. You try and tell me what is good bbq and then tell me to eat at a franchised place, I spit on your restaurant choice.

*QUALITY* authentic mexican food, im sure Texas has some too but nearly every other state ive been to if you're lucky enough to even find a taqueria it is awful. Also hippie type restaurants (vegan,veggie,raw.etc) dont see too many of them in the middle states (usually you aren't missing much though)

Frank, I'm from Smithfield. I've eaten more than double your weight in barbecue from restaurants you didn't know existed.

I grew up in NC, and have fond memories of big ol' BBQ's. I developed a love for the NC vinegar based pulled pork BBQ, and haven't found it's equal anywhere else. There's a "Carolina BBQ" place that operates near my work that I've been to a couple times, but it must be South Carolina style, because it sure ain't the stuff I remember. My coworkers rave about how great it is, but to me, it's good, but not REAL deal. Oh, and keltik, you forgot to mention fried okra--tastes like crap in any other form, but fried, it's delectable.

In VA, blue crab and oysters were the big thing. I enjoy good ol' crab shuckin' as a way to sit around and drink and socialize, but crabcakes are so much more delicious and filling.

I agree with Jesse about good authentic Mexican food, it was an adjustment I had to make when I moved up here from CA.

Here in the Seattle area, all of the Asian food I've had has been the best I've had anywhere. And of course, the seafood. Put them together, and great things can happen. Salmon curry at a Thai restaurant was the first meal I had the first time I visited Seattle. I'll confess, it was a factor in me moving up here.

I agree that crab > lobster, but to take it even further, dungeness crab >>> any other kind of crab.

Unfortunately neither are local for me. :(

For local foods I'd have to go with AAA Alberta Beef. Image

This is an admission of never trying stone crab. :wink: I just ate 7 giant claws/arms, and I'm stuffed. Its so sweet and delectable that I could only dip every other morsel in garlic butter (mixed with twist of pink lemon from the tree in my front yard). Its so good that it is never wasted by making crab cakes...they use the more plentiful and widespread blue crab for that. We love stone crab so much in FL that we export almost all of our blue crab to the east coast. Its the "B" crab.

Mexican food is awesome down here as well. I go to a place where the tacos are made with homemade corn tortillas, there are 6 choices of meat (ground beef isn't one of them), no cheese just onions and cilantro and maybe a slice of avocado. Oh yeah, and if you don't speak a little Spanish its very uncomfortable to order.

Asian food down here is shit though...Chinese places advertise about being NY style...whatever the hell that means. It sucks. In Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo MI there were large populations of Asian students which meant good Asian food for cheap. I miss it.
