Please don't bring up beer cheese soup. I'm almost going to cry from hearing you say that. It's been so long since I've had some after moving away from Milwaukee. Now you just reminded me of how much I miss it. haha

To NYers - What makes a NYC bagel so special? Never had one and not a big bagel person, but I'm just curious. I definitely have to give NYC best pizza though. The best pie I've ever had was in NYC. They are definitely pricey though.

C'mon Rachael, Manhattan clam chowder is way better than New England style.



Green chiles are really more of a New Mexico thing than an Arizona thing. Although, they're widely used throughout the Southwest. The only food I miss from my time in Colorado was the green chile cheese fries from Chubby's in Denver. So good.

lol considering I'm from NY, I really don't like Manhattan clam chowder at all. Surprisingly a lot of people I know don't like it at all who live here. My mom grew up in Manhattan and likes it though.

I have heard that traditionally, the clam chowder in New York was pretty much the same as New England clam chowder until the Italian recipe came along. It was then that people started calling one 'New England' and the other 'Manhattan'
