I always hear about things that you either can't get in Florida or just are not like it is in NY. It seems like half of Fla. is ny/nj transplants. Why cant they get the food situation up to speed?

On my way to work in Atlantic City Casino, every day I would stop at WaWa for a buttered roll. It is all in the bread, that makes the roll and the "water" from NY that makes the bread. When we moved down to NC 7 yrs. ago these were some of the things we missed:

1. buttered rolls
2. pork roll, egg & cheese sandwich (Taylor PR in general)
3. authentic NY/NJ pizza--thin and well done
4. Celentano stuffed shells
5. Italian hot dogs
6. Carolina rice (Yep! can't get Carolina rice in No. Carolina)

7 yrs. later we can get:

1. Taylor pork roll
2. pizza dough imported frozen from NY/NJ & I make my own pizza at home
3. Celentano stuffed shells

When we visit family in NJ we get our buttered rolls, Italian hot dogs, and Carolina rice. I bring the rice back to NC and my friends always ask me "where do you get Carolina rice---my reply--"New Jerseyy".

I used to sell a dozen NY bagels on Ebay for about 5 years. Shipped USPS Priority $20. I'd make about $7 a dozen. Did this until 2005 when shipping and bagels costs went up too high. I had regular customers in Fl,Az,NM and the Carolinas. Sent them to England,Spain and even the Philippines.One guy in England would buy 4 dz at a time.Wife got mad because car always smelled like everything bagels.I guess I made about $5k over the years.

Man nothing like eating a spackle knife full of butter on a roll in the morn. They served these in my high school as a kid. So much butter it was enough to last all day!

I think there is more nostalgia in the buttered roll for breakfast tradition than nutrition!!!

They don't have them here either, but what I miss most of all (besides the Cheesecake Factory ...sob..) is pizza. I just think that no one else can make pizza like they can in New York. Is it the water? The ovens ? No Italians?

I thought the Cheesecake Factory is a chain restaurant. Don't worry eventually one will pop up at a mall near you

Well, here's my .02

I currently live here in NY but plan to move to NC when I retire. One thing I promise to do is.....not wanting to change a thing about NC. While I may miss the pizza, bagels, poppy seeded rolls, and a good Italian pork store, I don't want NC to become the place I left behind. That's the problem with "transplants". Enough go to an area and screw it up for the native locals. I won't get offended if I see a rebel flag in the back window of a pick-up truck, nor will I quiver in fear if I see someone open carrying a handgun. Remember this: "When in Rome, do what the Romans do"


....and yeah, there's nothing like 2 eggs w/bacon on a poppy seeded roll for breakfast !
