I am curious, when I visit a new country I really would like to know what is the most famous food. Are there any from the forum who want to share the same addiction to real nice foreign food? ;)

In the States, BBQ would be up there. Not shrimp-on-the-barbie grilling, but slow smoked goodness.

Come on Peeps! I thought this topic would take off.

Here, in my adopted country/residence, the most famous foods are probably padthai and tom yum goong.

I live in the U.S. Where I live now, in the Mid-Atlantic, people are proud of the local crab cakes. Prior to that, I lived in the Pacific Northwest. Crab cakes are big there too, but quite different - Dungeness crab, as opposed to blue crab. Other biggies in the Pacific Northwest are salmon and local wine.

I have quite a few in my list, the food that I got addicted to in my traveling.

Moussaka in Greece, also gyros pita (they insert french fries inside it, how clever!)
Belgian fries in Brussels
Porchutto in Madrid
Wings and ribs in Canada and USA (honey garlic is my favourite)
Pierre Marcolini chocolate in Brussels as well (can you count it as a food?)
Piri-piri chicken and pasteis de nata in Portugal
Paella in Valencia, Spain
Sushi, tempura, gyudon, and oden in Japan

As I from Indonesia, the best known food from there are nasi goreng and satay. However we have much more than that.

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA (you know, Rocky Balboa's home town) we are known for cheese steak sandwiches and soft pretzels with mustard. mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Chicago-style pizza in Chicago, it's popular and 3 inches thick.

Speaking of crab cakes, here's a Thai variation we came across yesterday:

Usa: The above, and the following:
French toast, Grilled cheese sandwiches(I don't mean the dry sandwiches that everyone seems to take for a real Grilled Cheese sandwich, but white or rye bread slathered in butter and fried on a griddle until golden brown, crushed down sufficiently.

Hot dogs- yeah-- no other country seems to do them right, though the Germanics and slavs have their share of great sausages.

Turkey: The list goes on.
Here is my favorite list.

Kanats- small chicken legs bathed in yogurt-chile sauce
Doners-cut by hand, not those stupid rotating slicer machines. They ruin it.
Gosleme-
Yoghurt. The worst Turkish yogurts, the cheapest, are equal to the best American brands found in supermarkets. The best, nd I will give you a name, is like heaven. Altan-- its just perfectly creamy and tasty.

In most parts of Canada now, Poutine is pretty ubiquitous—and uniquely Canadian! Poutine (originating in Quebec) is a dish consisting of French fries topped with fresh cheese curd, covered with brown gravy and sometimes other ingredients. Ive had it with Bacon, Duck Con Fit, etc.

Great comfort food with which to nurse hangovers!

If you go to Argentina, you must consume as much steak and malbec wine as possible! Amazing, and so cheap.
