Seattle might be teriyaki. It's a local invention and served in hole-in-the-wall storefronts with fluorescent lighting. It can be chicken, beef, whatever. The sauce is a combination of teriyaki sauce (soy etc.), a sweetener like pineapple juice, a few spices, and thickener of some kind. Served over rice. Authentic Japanese iceberg and ranch salad on the side. All of which mixes really well minus some of the rice. This goes for $7.00 and is often takeout. I thought ever city had this until the NYT reported on it. A City. Or better yet: http://www.seattleweekly.com/2007-08...od-phenomenon/

Also salmon is good, cooked in many ways.

Don't forget soft pretzels-nowhere in the US does them better. NYC somehow became known for their nasty freezer pretzels when Philly has the real thing. I'd also include water ice, tomato pie, scrapple. Roast Pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and sharp prov is better than a cheesesteak IMO.

Also, although ubiquitous across the US and even world today, soda was invented and became popular in Philadelphia. I don't drink much anymore, but when I do it's a Frank's Black Cherry Wisniak.

You are so right about that. Houston's food scene is great, and I LOVE the Vietnamese restaurants there!

There's a growing following in the larger Texas cities (and heck, even in smaller ones like Tyler) for Korean food - it seems to really be gaining in popularity. I LOVE me some Korean food. Yum.

I think that Maine has several contenders: lobster (rolls, stew, or steamed and served on a plate), blueberry pie, whoopie pies, fiddleheads, and poutine. Lobster is king along the coast, the dessert options are popular everywhere, and fiddleheads are a late spring staple, especially in rural areas. Portland restaurants serve fancy poutine, but if you go to The County, you can get the real thing.
