I'm pretty sure you can find Carne Sada (marinated steak) anywhere in the world, but San Diego, CA has some of the tastied Carne Sada dishes around.

Especially the heavy in the belly Carne Sada Fries. It'll make you go to sleep.

some of the things that are local to us are , meat pies of all different flavours, fish n chips really crispy batter , hot chips(french fries (big thick chips )) rolled up in paper

feijoas, green lipped mussels, marmite and cheese sandwhiches

and in the south island they have cheese rolls which are slices of white bread with grated cheese and onion soup mix rolled up then baked in the oven
when life hands you lemons, make lemon gelee, lemon meringue pie, or any other dessert your heart desires

South-Central Arizona

Foods common to the South-Central part of Arizona:

1) Green Chile: slow roasted pork and beef, tossed with tomato sauce, and green chiles. Green chile is typically eaten as a burro (burrito).

2) Green Chile Enchilada Casserole: This is a home comfort food - green chile (see above) tossed with sour cream, cream of mushroom soup, and shredded cheddar cheese. This mixture is spooned in alternating layers in a casserole dish with layers of tortilla chips.

Living in Amish Country I will say Whoopie Pies. Soft cake like cookies with buttercream frosting in between them. This time of year i like the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and Pumpkin with Sweet Butter cream.

I went to my local market yesterday after work and picked up some of the Chocolate, Pumpkin and Vanilla. I had some guests from out of town over for dinner last night and that is always a fun thing to serve for dessert.

I am not from Hawai'i but I must mention they have Spam recipes you have never heard of.Here in Southern Cali,we have probably the highest amount of sashimi/sushi consumption outside of Japan.And of course like all other encounters of ethnic food with American ideas on life,it has spawned a huge American/Japanese repertoire of flavors,recipes and preparations.In the words of a Japanese friend when he first came down," Only 5 of these things on the menu are Japanese Sushi,all the rest I have never seen.I am going to have SO MUCH FUN"

Ontario Chef here.....
Originally from Toronto .....food there so widely diverse...everything from a ton of Sushi places,Indian Thai ,Carribean,Spanish, Italian...well you get it...The best places to get these different ethnic foods is to go to the area most populated Like Cinese food in China town...Greek food right down on the Danforth (actually have Taste of the Danforth when they dedicate a whole week to Greek food! )  I love it!  Then of course also many wonderfull fine dining experiances to have ....I'm not going to pick favourites you'll have to come and see...lol
I live in the Kawartha Lakes of Ontario now....White Fish, Pickeral Lake Trout, Wall-eye, Bass  winter ice-fishing is really big here and summer  the Kawarthas a full of fishermen.....Venison is very big here too....lots of deer hunting! Local Dairy Farms like Kawartha Dairy is here and Local Honey ....and of course Canadian Maple Syrop nothing can compare....Lots of Cattle Farms, Lamb, Chicken, Pig ( Canadian Back Bacon yeah!)
Ontario is a province of abundance...A local vegetable farmer in the summer seems to be right in everyone's backyard! Fresh Corn at Harvest time of all the root vegetables...Pumpkin,,Squash,Potatoes,Carrots, Beets, Onions, you name it! Oh and are Wild Turkeys too can't forget them ...they support our Traditional Canadian Thanks-Giving and Christmas


Northern and Southern Ontario ....I beleive it's the most beautifull of all the provinces...come for a visit sometime
