    After 10 minutes deciding where to post this I decided on the General Baptist Only Forum. If it is meant to be elsewhere then I guess the Moderators can move it:

    Here's what it is all about.

    What are some regional foods that you would miss if you moved to another country/state/town?

    For the first time in a long while I had a cheese and pickle sandwich! That's what got me thinking.

    Also, I'd miss Marmite!

    Any others?

    I would miss Kentucky Bar-b-Q. Nobody makes it like its cooked in Kentucky, and nobody makes it as well. So good, it'll make your teeth itch!

    Yum Goetta, I used to live in Cincinnati and loved it.

    How about a trade?

    A good Philadelphia Hoagie,
    Italian, with oil and vinegar (no mayo), extra onion, spices, hot peppers, and hold the tomatoes please. :D

    Oh, ...and a Philadelphia Cheese steak, yummm.

    No place else can seem to do them right.

    Since moving from Ohio to North Carolina almost ten years ago I miss Mr. Hero's Romanburgers! and Oh Boy's hamburgers, but upon a return last month I found my cousins were able to duplicate their secret hamburger sauce -- mayonase and pickle juice...hmmmmm!!!

    You made me think of the last place I lived, Chicago(moved 26 years ago), best pizza, we don't get pizza like that here. Here we have pizza hut and dominoes, pizza hut is good, but nothing like the family owned pizza places in chicago.

    Friend of God, my father was in the US airforce and we used to get something like those Coney Dogs on the base. They were good.

    What is Goetta?

    Hi Rob - sounds like a good trade to me! Although I have to say I was a bit surprised to find out that "cheese-whiz" was what they put on the Cheese steaks! That was culture shock for me when I ate one in Philly last year!

    A good cheese steak place will give you your choice of whiz, American, or provolone.

    I like Jim's of South Street and the Northeast.

    I grew up in west Texas, and I can honestly say what I miss the most is Taco Cabana and Der Weinersnitzel.
