I guess this is true. I always hear Baltimore natives down here in Virginia talk of how better their seafood is but I'm sure its just as good everywhere. They may just have a different way of preparing/seasoning or certain dishes that are not as popular down here.

Yeah and I was stating that what I gathered from most of the posts so far is that the NE metros have the best Italian foods overall.

I'll add though. I guess my metro, Hampton Roads/Tidewater Virginia, has some of the best hams around... and spoon bread.

I love garlic knots. There is this authentic Italian resturant near me that has OUTSTANDING garlic knots and pizza. The owners are Italians who were born and raised in NYC. When my relatives from NY come here they always go there and love it.

But for this thread idk if there is anyfood that is not as good outside of my metro. Maybe peurto rican food? I'm not saying other metros have better food than mine. I just think in general if you look hard enough you can find good quality food of every type of food in most big metros.

Pulled Pork Barbeque typically sucks outside of North Carolina
Stone Crab claws almost always suck outside of South Florida

Spoon Bread is like, well, bread you can eat with a spoon.... LOL!

No but seriously, think of like a very soft sweet and buttery cornbread. Almost like a pudding.

Same here. We have a pretty good selection down here, but I think I can find food in other metros just as good.

It's tough to find a food that's better in LA's Metro area than anywhere else, since LA and SD share a lot of the same regional cuisine. That being said, I'll just say that the best fish tacos I've every had, by a long shot, are in Southern California. I think a big part of this is that the dish migrated north from Baja California and retains its authenticity.
