    Really portuguese food I like? A well made chouriço (not the industrial stuff you may be able to buy) barbecued and eaten with bread, or any of several codfish recipes we have.
    Sorry, I have no photos of the good stuff, I usually just eat it! :D

    Sopapilla are excellent, but are topped by a good chile relleno: a whole pepper stuffed with cheese, battered and fired and then smothered in a red or green chile sauce. The best of New Mexico.

    But of course, green chile improves just about any dish.

    Old Hickory is pretty nice. Tokyo's is a local Japanese restaurant too, and it is amazing. >_>

    Yusheng! A dish that is a mix of crunchy crackers to soft salmon, nuts and diced vegetables, sweet and sour sauce mixed into one. An opening starter to a family banquet gathering that is eaten only during the Chinese New Year. You won't find this in China(except for a couple of villages in Guangzhou) or most Chinatowns in the world. It's a dish local only to the Chinese communities of Malaysia and Singapore.

    Rougan (Bakkwa)




    Slices of smoked meat, usually pork but often beef or mutton. It's dripped and marinated in sweet-salt sauces and cooked to a nice crisp at the edges but soft chewy meat at it's centre. It does not taste like jerky. It's better.

    Kueh Bankit




    A Chinese New Year snack that originates from Malay cooking and Chinese Biscuits. I'm not sure what it is made of but it sweet and powdery with the taste of Coconut milk and flour, tightly packed and baked.

    Columbus has excellent ice cream places! It's also the home of Wendys and White Castle, so I guess it's famous for burgers too. There are a few good local burger joints there too (Thurmans and Graffiti Burger)

    In my new hometown, this is a good lunch..

    Kansas City BBQ pulled pork sandwiches! If it isn't all over your face by the end of the meal, you haven't eaten the sandwich properly. ;)

    Yeah, Columbus does have some good restaurants, but I was more trying to think of individual food items that we are known for. I suppose fast food burgers, but that isn't exactly something unique. :dunno:

    I'll get creole where I can, but Nashville isn't near as good as Louisiana or Mississippi.

    The first and most obvious, Lefse:


    A sort of pancake / waffle thing that you butter and put sugar and cinnamon on, then lay double. It is delicious.

    Less well known but a personal favorite: Rømmebrød (lit: sour cream bread)



    A traditional christmas cake, it is probably my favorite among them.

    Lastly, a non desert: fårikål (lit: sheep in cabbage)



    It is simple, it is good and it gets better the longer you store it. The basic recipe is fatty lamb or sheep layered with cabbage and whole pepper.

    In-N-Out is one of the only good large fast-food chains. If you ever find yourself in California or Arizona you should try it.

    And besides, while Germany invented the burger, the American version is far different.

    French fries are a ´refinement´ of the Belgian original - Belgian fries are the best. :goodjob:

    On New Year´s Eve it´s customary to eat oliebollen (lit. oil balls, although apparently apples - and a lot of dough - are involved in the making), which is the only occasion I eat them.

    :newyear:
