Well being raised in So. CA, and most of us had avocado trees we have eaten Avocado toast for years.

That is interesting. I have never seen an avocado tree.

They just weren't a food we were familiar with here on the east coast when I was growing up. Of course now everything is available everywhere. I first had avocado toast (a bagel actually) last year when my boss got a bagel with avocado and tomato on it then asked me if I wanted it because he had to go to a meeting at another location. It was good! Having it on the bread/toast counteracts the mushiness.

It's one of the few mushy foods I like, the buttery richness counteracts the mushiness. Though as with many fruits, I'm quite picky, and want a perfectly soft-firm one.

And I grew up in California too, so I had a big head start on you eating avocados.

The first item on the list is how Nathan's hot dogs, from Coney Island, created the 'hot dog as we know it', in 1916, and the second item on the list claims that one year later

1.Year: 1916

Restaurant: Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs

Coney Island, New York Nathan's [Hot Dogs] set the mold for every American restaurant that would follow in its dirty-water wake


2.Year: 1917

Restaurant: American Coney Island
Detroit, Michigan

Technically, the coney dog -- which has absolutely nothing to do with New York, thank you very much --




Was this article written by someone with a split personality disorder?

The Coney dog isn't from NY and it's not served the way a NY hot dog is. The article was pretty clear.

Read it all.

Interesting, the claim that chicken & waffles has Los Angeles roots, since it gets a lot of southern/soul food play these days.

I am not arguing that Michigan's coney dog is served the way a NY hot dog is, but it is interesting that the business model of serving a frankfurter on a bun in New York on Coney Island was witnessed by Greek Macedonian immigrants passing through Ellis Island, who then settled in Michigan and suddenly Michigan has a frankfurter, on a bun, (with the addition of a meat sauce) and mysteriously called "Coney Island" hot dogs.

To say, and I quote, "which has absolutely nothing to do with New York, thank you very much" is plainly false.

That would be like a pizzeria in New York saying that pizza has 'absolutely nothing to do with Italy, thank you very much'.

And even longer on a hard roll with gravy at Jewish Delis in NYC!

I looked again. The article doesn't say it was all original dishes, but also versions that had some influence.
