Regional Foods

Post by slooroo » 1 month ago

So the reason why I started this thread is because of a memory I had from many years ago talking to a friend in Canada. So here in the southern United States we eat a lot of catfish. It's a good, clean white fish and it's very plentiful in our lakes and rivers. You can also do a lot of stuff with it, usually fried or grilled with some type of seasoning blend like cajun. When I told her this she was just absolutely baffled why anyone would eat a catfish. Over the years I've asked other people if they've eaten catfish and I've almost always been told no. So, are there any common meals in your area people in other places don't eat?

I don't think we Midwesterners eat very many weird things. We're pretty bland.

New Jersey is pretty boring foodwise as well as far as I know. Though there's a restaurant near me that makes some really out there burgers and stuff.

Also we have a fish called crappie that's really good. Plus frog legs are kinda common. If you go further south you can easily find alligator.

I know bagels with lox is super common in my area. I've heard people question it before so maybe it's more regional to the northeast?

Bagels in general while you can buy them easily in the south won't be that common in restaurants and such. Southerners prefer their biscuits and cornbread.

To me it tastes better than most white fish but I can be biased. I definitely like it more than say tilapia or something.

I had some foods in South Dakota that aren't in the south that were pretty good.

Any place where bagels aren't held in high regard is a sad place that should be avoided.
