  • Long Beach, CA... we have *everything*. but, I grew up a couple blocks from Cambodia Town, so what stands out most in my mind is the Cambodian (and Thai, at most of the same restaurants, for less adventurous diners) food.

    Here's some beef skewers from Sophy's ::drools::

    • ahah kolaches are a specialty at Buc-ee's (the world's biggest gas station / convenience stores, in Texas -- the gas station parts have like 100 pumps each... and the convenience stores have ENTIRE WALLS of different kinds of jerky)

  • Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    -Lobster
    -New England Clam Chowder
    -Baked Beans

    Or a more local favorite, roast beef sandwiches. They're not like cold deli meat, it's different. It's hot and thinly sliced, and usually comes with a sauce or condiment, depending on the place👍

    • yah that's the weirdest thing about north america in general -- the big city centers are where things close the earliest! (with the exception of a handful of dive bars and cheap diners...) fucked up, right?
      almost all the 24hr restaurants are in random places in the suburbs, and/or in nowhere-land off the highway exits.

      on the other hand, at least American businesses are actually... like... open when they say they'll be open XD
      (I'm lookin' at you, Spain and Italy... especially Italy)

      Lemme tell you sometime about when I was living in Italy, and I had a ticket to fly out of Florence, and they decided to just CLOSE THE AIRPORT... FOR THREE MONTHS. Boom. Just close it. WHAT? WHO DOES THAT?
      Lol

      And then Spain is the only country I've traveled in where trains have actually left EARLY. Like, I missed a train from Sevilla-Málaga once because I got there 15 minutes early (which is really rare for me -- I'm chronically late) and it had left 20 minutes early! wtf? is that normal?

    • @redeyemindtricks Yeah, when I came to Chicago, I was walking at night through downtown and there was no one xD The north side is what stays open late, which is still part of the city, but they don't stay open too late. Only some fast food restaurants are open late.

      You're right, Spanish people are awful with time. Sometimes they open like 20 minutes late, especially if it's in the evening; you can't mess up the siesta xD

      I lived in an island so there was no train, but I never had any issues when I traveled to the mainland, I find it weird that the train left earlier, that shouldn't be legal.

      Oh, and the airport thing in Italy is messed up XD

  • I was born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, UK. Yorkshire is famous for Yorkshire Pudding. Not the puffs of wind you can buy in shops, but home made real pudding. Lovely with lashings of thick gravy, or else with jam. Not both together, though!! 😂

    • @sunlite I live in the Twin Cities suburbs, so it's definitely not a rural thing. This is a traditional Minnesotan food, I think it's an American thing, because Americans are too lazy to cook or scared to eat 'strange things'.

    • i like chicken and i like rice so i'll find it and try it

  • The closest major city to my hometown is San Francisco. It is known for sourdough bread.
