There's a lot of it in Central PA, oh lord there is.

Chicken Bott Boi, Hog Maw, Lebanon Bologna, Chicken Corn Soup, and countless other things...

Though as far as just plain local food joints, there's a place called The Sandwich Man that makes pretty much the best subs you're going to find in the area. I try to get there once a week if I can.

Since I just saw this on "Unwrapped," apparently the Garbage Plate is a Western NY tradition, namely in Rochester. We have a place that serves it here in Brockport, so I guess I thought it was an all-over thing but "Unwrapped" made it seem not so.

Just remembered another one from my time in southwest Missouri. Springfield Cashew Chicken. Still my preferred type.

In Ottawa, it'd have to be one of two things.

The very obvious Poutine, which for the uninformed is french fries, gravy, and cheese curds. You can buy this virtually anywhere.

The second is the Shawarma with the surprisingly large Lebanese population around here. That would be a pita wrap with chicken or beef, garlic sauce, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, a few other toppings, and often a side of garlic potatoes.

To add to the Ottawa thing, we also have "Beaver Tails", a popular fried dough treat. Click Here (en.wikipedia.org) for more info and Click Here (beavertailsinc.com) for a picture. I find them to be yummy!

It's not a dish, and it's not from this area, but I have a boss who spent part of his childhood in the south (Mississippi, I think) and he will occasionally pour a package of salted peanuts into a can/bottle of Pepsi and then drink the whole thing. As I say, I believe it to be a southern thing.

That or he just liked to experiment with his food. I used to dunk fresh bagels into grape soda when I was a kid, but I wouldn't call it a DC area mix just because I did it.

Ew, ew, ew. (This coming from bagel-dunky-man) I still have family in the App's (WV). Next time I talk to them, I need to ask them if they do that.

She-crab soup, and sweet tea. I'd never even heard of she-crap soup until I moved to Virginia Beach; now I order it whenever I see it on the menu.

One of the strange things about it is that, I guess due to the combination of spices, the soup tastes colder than it probably really is. Or maybe it's actually served colder than other soups, I don't know.

In the South West of England, the regional dish is the Cornish Pasty washed down with a pint of cider, specifically Blackthorn if you're in the Bristol area*. Personally, I can't stand cider after a traumatic experience in my early youth, but I'll always go for a pint of ale.


*Not technically "in" the South West, but still definitely Westcountry, with the rural accent and everything.



Insert witty and/or amusing saying or phrase here.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

Shockingly, Meriden has one: the steamed cheeseburger. Nope, never had it, but I'm told it's full of melty goodness.
