huevos rancheros or carne adovada? Huevos Rancheros are admittedly a general tex-mex staple but I’ve very rarely found carne adovada outside New Mexico/Texas/Arizona.
I grew up on Vernor’s and it is pretty good. When I encountered Blenheim’s I was told that it would only be appreciated by those who had never had anything better than Vernor’s, so I tried it not expecting it to even come close. Well, it left Vernor’s in the ditch sucking wind. Those who think Canada Dry is ginger ale should save their money, but for a real sipping ginger ale, Blenheim’s is it.
Maybe Poi (Hawaiian) should also be on the list.
Very Hoosier (Indiana). Huge, flat, fried pieces of pork tenderloin that dwarf the buns they’re served on.
Also sugar cream pie, fried biscuits with apple butter, and a mess of perch.
Could people edit these items to identify where they’re from? I added a few that I knew, entering the city in the “by” entry.
Ale 8-One, which has been bottled in Winchester, KY since 1926.
Good list. You need to add Ale 8-One, which has been bottled in Winchester, KY since 1926, not to mention Kentucky Bourbon.
Shoo-fly pie is on the list twice (#76 & #92), and so are steamed clams (#73 & #109).
What about Chimichangas or Nachos? Oh, chow mein and fortune cookies are also distinctly American foods. And you can’t forget New Orlean’s Red Beans and Rice!
