The title says it all-- vote for your favorite American regional cuisine. I know I haven't named them all... sorry! I have it set up where you can choose multiple options, but try to limit your choices to 2 or 3 max-- just pick whatever you're in the mood for right now!

I LOVE N'awlins' cuisine, but sometimes its a bit hot. Naturally I also voted for Chicago, you can pick from anything out here. Pizza and hot dogs and Italian Beefs are Chicago's forte, and we do a dang good job of it. ;-)

I'll stand up for the south from the standpoint of BBQ and Mexican...its not just the southwest, but the southeast too has some surprisingly excellent Mexican and hot sauces, recipes that are foreign to people in the northeast who couldn't lick a jalapeno without lunging for a gallon sized water jug.
But where are these choices for the south, particularly the BBQ? Chicken fried steak and grits as THE choice of a whole vast region? Good god, eating rice cakes topped w/ peanutbutter would be a more delectable and unique cuisine than that crap. Yuck and good luck ever cleansing the arteries.

I voted NYC, Louisiana and New England.

No place, except perhaps San Francisco, has the variety New York has, or its water--for the best bagel.

Louisiana food is special for me.

And New England, matched probably by the PNW, for seafood--fresh, fresh, fresh!

I don't know about the distinction between "Southern food" and "Cajun food". What's the difference?

In many parts of the south (Charleston, Beaufort, Savannah, Wilmington, etc.), what you call "Cajun/Creole food" is our regional food, and has always been. We just don't market it as well as the Louisianans do. Likewise, the food of the upland south (What you call "Soul food") is definitely eaten in Louisiana.
