Regional food

Having lived in four states, I can tell you there is a VAST difference in local foods and eateries. Where do each of you live and what would a stereotypical dinner be?

I don't have a stereotypical dinner, it varies way too much.. but I'm sure some here do.

No, silly, not YOUR stereotypical dinner (especially since you're single) your region's! For example the stereotypical dinner in most of the South would be fried chicken, greens, sliced tomatoes, and mac 'n cheese.

However, I was born and raised in Florida, still in the deep South, but our stereotypical dinner there was fish, grits, with hushpuppies, greens, and sliced tomatoes.

I had a very Southern father with a very Yankee mother, with both of them cooking. It made for interesting dinners at our home - at least when they were sober - hahaha! Razz

One thing about I really miss about Florida is the fish and seafood - it's just not the same anywhere else. Crying or Very sad At least the few states where I have lived...

yes, nowhere has food (or seafood) like Florida. There's nothing like some blackened mahi-mahi with a side of fried gator tail. Twisted Evil


Dinner isn't totally cut and dry here, but I can tell you a popular breakfast. Twisted Evil


Fried (overeasy) or scrambled eggs
Bacon (not too crispy, not too soft!)
Sausage (preferably round patties!)
Grits, preferably with cheese (God's gift to the South)
Biscuits 'n gravy
Buttermilk pancakes

You can experience all of these things here:





Sometimes when you're too busy to sit down you can get most of it in a different form:

It's all about the Mexican food here. Not the slop you get at Toxic Hell, real stuff. Twisted Evil

At most restaurants, a combo plate is very typical. This might consist of:

Enchiladas (Red or Green)
Chile Relleno
Taco
Tamale
with beans, rice and some shredded lettuce and diced tomatos on the side.

Well. yea. I'm right next to the border.. and there's a taco shop on every corner.. sometimes two.

I try not to eat at those much though. I still haven't recovered from some crazy food poisoning I got at one of them. People from 3rd world countries often don't have safe food handling habits.

In Western pennsylvania............... well the german town I was born and raised in anyway, they enjoy a good dish of saurkraut and pork, cooked for hours at a slow simmer. maybe a few hot dogs thrown in. And mashed potatoes too, of course.

my favorite locally made in some small stores, is Ponhaus, or Scrapple as the Easterners call it. I love it sliced thick, dredged in flour and fried till crispy in butter. not good for the heart, but darn tasty.

Actually the local favorite food is beer, as the Straub family will tell you, it is liquid food.

I live in a rather multi-cultural inner-city area...I guess our typical dinner is made up of whatever's in the fridge at the moment. *elf

Edit: correcting my brain farts.

lol, oddly your new avatar is scaaaaary.... nooo

well traditional Swedish food is meatballs and potatoes and stuff like that... but i live in the very south, close to Europe and also the most multicultural place in Sweden. this is falafel/kebab town and costs less then half here then in the rest in sweden. maybe it's because i grew up here but i'm not in to swedish food at all, i take sticky rice or pasta over potatoes any day. Mexican,middle eastern,Italian,Japanese,thai, you name it and i will probably choose it over traditional swedish food anyday. also the larger Swedish towns are very americanized, so we eat at pizza hut, mcdonalds, kfc etc...

Watch out, everybody! She's got FLOWERS!!! rry


Mmmm...falafel.
We also have a variety of 'ethnic' restaurants and foods within our reach. In the better parts of San Diego, most of these 'ethnic' restaurants present their foods in more gourmet styles and are more exotically and extravagently decorated...not to mention, ridiculous prices or their food.

Let me think... the sterotypical food from my hometown would have to be Gin and Juice, or Old English...but of course that's more like a drink than a food? Can anyone guess where I had the luxury of being raised.

I can't get that picture to load Sad

And, yes, I've heard that name before. It's an Anglicised version, though. A lot of Irish words are changed because the spelling can be a bit awkward. In Irish it would be Éire or Éireann.
