GREAT PLACE TO GET MEAT. Not that I’d know, the Lonely Planet told us. I vowed to return the next day, but forgot. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This is a really interesting article and well worth a read. Check it out!

 

A state-by-state guide to iconic US foods – travel tips and articles – Lonely Planet.

 

Although no expert, I tend to think that the article over-simplifies a bit. For example, surely Texas is famous for much more than Nachos and New York has more than Pizza?

 

What do you think?

  2. Hi Alf,
    I certainly agree with you that this article oversimplifies. That’s due to the fact that the author reduces each state to just one dish. That’s something that, especially in a state as big and as diversified as Texas, won’t work. Texas, as you say, is not only Nachos. But if you want a dish that’s unique to Texas and Texas only, then maybe it’s not too bad a choice.
    Best regards from TexMex country,
    Pit
    P.S.: thanks for the map showing the long bygone grandeur of Texas. 😉

    • Hi Pit, I wondered if this blog might bring you to your keyboard 🙂

      Thx for sharing your views, especially the comment about the map of Texas!
