Miami could contribute some of its vast Latin cuisine but that would be "stolen" cuisine. Therefore, I'll offer Florida Stone Crab claws. My mouth waters just thinking about it.

Caprioti's is pretty damn good.

Publix? Isn't that your thing? Lol. That's all I hear about from my friends from there so I'm assuming it's a Miami thing that's just expanded.

I think one dish that is uniquely Houston is the Vietnamese crawfish. Although the crawfish boil originates from the Louisiana Gulf Coast, the Vietnamese crawfish is something that has exploded over the last decade and restaurants dedicated to this dish can be found in any U.S. major city right now, which originally became prevalent first in the Houston area. The Vietnamese community along the Gulf Coast (outside of Houston) should also be credited for this dish too.

The Vietnamese crawfish is a perfect fusion of Houston's geographic location and diversity to create a fun dish.

If I had to contribute one thing from San Francisco, it would undoubtedly be a totally crusty loaf of sour dough bread.

Yes, that's the epicenter, it seems. I'm sure it's available in other border states, just like it is in Maine.

You'll have to be satisfied with sharing the pierogi love. Someone has already claimed them. I grew up with them in NEPA. My boyfriend's mom and the church ladies made the best pierogi I've ever eaten.

Originated in Philly? Eastern Europe.

A lot of it is "stolen" cuisine. I have some stone crabs in the freezer which I'll be eating soon.

What about Banh Mi Sandwiches? How popular are those in Houston?

San Diego - Fish Tacos and/or Carne Asada Fries or Carne Asada Burritos

Washington DC - Half Smoke, and although Baltimore is more well-known for them, Crabcakes. There's also great Korean options, especially in the Northern VA suburbs

Los Angeles - French Dip, Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs, Tacos, Hamburgers, etc.

Los Angeles has the best Korean cuisine in the country, hands-down. Believe it or not, Atlanta is no slouch with Korean food and Korean-Mexican fusion either. However, for this, I'd say either a Chili Dog at Varsity or Hash Browns from Waffle House
