Maybe nowadays, but sweet tea is more of a "Southern" thing...not a New Orleans thing. This is what I've been told by natives. And I don't recall seeing it offered at many places in NO...

Hot Doug's is more noted for it's creative dogs, not the traditional style. Dude, you're a Philadelphian. Are the best cheesesteaks at Pat's/Geno's/Tony Luke's or at the humble, less touristy shops?

You can LOL all you want when it's as easy to get GOOD Mexican, Vietnamese, or Chinese food in NYC as it is in SF.

Agreed. However, like I alluded to earlier, the higher end options could be a LOT better. I think that's what's really stopping LA from really getting up there in the NYC/CHI/SF range.

Admittedly, not everyone wants to eat in some hole in the wall all the time, though for me, I LOVE doing that.

SGV isn't where the center of the Southeast Asian community is located (it's mainly Chinese, with some Chinese-Vietnamese and Filipinos strewn about). I would say Long Beach fits that bill more, with a good combination of Vietnamese, Filipino, Cambodian, Thai, and Laotian options spread throughout the city (especially along Anaheim St.)

It's actually extremely difficult to find really good Szechwan and Cantonese food in Flushing (I'm really into spicy food), though I will admit that I've had some of the BEST noodles there I'm going back in December after being gone for 7 years, so I'm willing to give NYC's Chinese options another go again considering I'm MUCH older and have a much more developed palate.
