Yum.

South Carolina has some great food. But I really love the food up and down our eastern seaboard!

When I lived in Maryland, I nearly OD'd on crabs - LOL.

Not to mention, Mexican food is extremely popular in CO, and very good. I never heard of 303 day, after 36 years here.

With Detroit, I feel like Arabic food has to be in there somewhere.

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: Seattle News and Events | How Teriyaki Became Seattle's Own Fast-Food Phenomenon

Also salmon is good, cooked in many ways.
For Seattle I'd have to say it would be Dungeness Crab (straight from Dungeness, WA) and various local oysters or the Seattle-style Hot Dog with cream cheese and sriracha.

New Orleans is a city with multiple singular dishes. What other cities is this also true?

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