I was born in Ukraine, but now I live in London. So, when I visit my parents I always taste borsch and salo! Do you know such meal? Yummy. It's a pity that I live far from my parents. :D

I know what salo is because my father is from Kharkov. I visited Kiev and people are fond of salo. But, is it consumed fresh or with salt? Can it be fried?

Philippines: Lechon Baboy (whole spit roasted young pig), Silvanas (a dessert), grilled half of a Tuna jaw.

America: my mama's fried chicken, NY pizza from a native New Yorker, Sand Dabs in Southern California, Chicken Mole in any neighborhood with a large enough Mexican-American population to have a tortilla factory in a store front shop and a place that sells tamales 7 days a week, Clam chowder at the Crab Cooker in Newport Beach.

I ate lots of egg sandwiches in Spain. It started when I went to some place and asked for a cheese and tomato sandwich. And they automatically put eggs on it. Sliced up boiled eggs. It was tasty. And fairly cheap.

Weird, I know.

All I know other than that is paella.

Anyway, as for food in my home country--I'm from the US, a Southerner, and let me tell you, down here in the South, we are very particular about our barbecue. Though being vegetarian, I don't eat it. Also, shrimp and grits, which I don't eat, though I do like grits, I just don't eat shrimp. Also buttermilk biscuits, made from scratch. Fried okra. Fried green tomatoes! Mmmmm. Delicious homemade macaroni and cheese, none of that kraft dinner stuff. As for beverages--sweet tea, of course!

Hey wordygirlj, the best pulled pork I've ever had in my life was at Mack Kells in Asheville. I ate at least half of my dinners there for weeks. Is it still there?

Many thanks for the help! It will be very useful for me to be aware of this. It sounds tasty!

I believe it is! I've never been, though, just seen it driving by. Vegetarian, so pulled pork isn't really my style :) Glad you enjoyed Asheville, though, or at least the food!

I did enjoy Asheville. More than anyplace else I've been on or near the East coast.

I just moved to Austria and the local specialty is Kartner (Carinthian) Kaseknodel. They are like overgrown ravioli - dumplings stuffed with cheese - but are served with a buttery sauce. My new favorite dish! If you find yourself in this part of the world, order them.
