A local favorite in Baltimore is soft-shelled crab. Not to fond of it though.

In Maine they have a side dish called Poutine that is french fries smothered with cheese curds and gravy. Originally from Quebec, it is all over the Northeast now.

I love the "Donair" which comes across the border from Canada as well.


In Michigan I love the Pastie from the UP.

Wisconsin also has the Kringle which I haven't found anyplace else.

Iowa's specialty is loosemeat sandwiches.(As mentioned on Roseanne show since Tom Arnold is from Iowa)
Don't call em' sloppy joes! And no ketchup !
Sometimes with onions, cheese, mustard and other seasonings. After cooking the meat is usually stored in steam and magically the meat holds together when put on the bun.

In South Dakota, Native Americans have influence on local foods. Wastunkula (corn soup) and Wojapi (blackberry desert) are popular Sioux foods.

Bison and elk are also popular here.

I've seen Poutine served up a few times, and I can feel my arteries harden and my waist thicken just looking at the dish.

One thing that I notice that is a huge difference between the northeast and the midwest is that more lamb is consumed in the northeastern part of the US. Lamb was often eaten in my house (especially around the holidays) when I was a child and I remember hearing my mom and my grandmother complain that it wasn't as commonly found in the grocery stores since they had moved to the midwest. Now that I'm an adult, and I want to cook it for myself, I find that I have the same problem sometimes finding it when I want it.

New England: Fiddleheads, which are the shoots of ferns. They are actually very tasty when prepared the right way.

Sorry I have one more from "up nort" in Wisconsin and probably Minnesota too. We used to have lefse quite a bit as a kid. Lefse is a norweigian thing. Its almost like a flatbread or tortilla. We used to eat it with just butter or cinnemon and sugar on it. That is also another thing that my fellow Floridians think us Wisconsinites are crazy for, all of our crazy food that nobody has ever heard of.

Lefse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
