OK Mark...explain what that means please? :wacko:

Pasties are the nipple covering on exotic dancers. Sometimes with tassles swinging 'round.

I guess you can still ask for ketchup with them. :wink:

Thank you for that....i would take a guess that they would taste better than the average pastie we get round here :wink:

My aunt makes pasties, but there have never been any nipples under these ones. :laugh:

They are a meat pie that resembles a calzone in shape. Hers are filled with a beef stew like mixture including beef, onions, potatoes, carrots, and a thick sauce. Some people like tons of ketchup on it, but I can't stand it.

Here in Maine, it's Lobster Rolls, even at McDonalds not too bad at $ 3.95 and in SuperMarkets like Hannaford's or Shaw's.

No one really screws 'em up too badly. Have not had one from 'frozen' meat yet. So that's a plus. And it's year around, not like cherries or morels or some other seasonal foods.

Also popular on da Iron Range in northern MN. Unlike a calzone, the "crust" is flakey -- not yeast.

Springfield, Illinois-

Have you seen the episode of Cooks Tour where AB is in the Mall of America? Fried foods, food on a stick, high fat foods with more fat cleverly added to it or some combination of all the above (i.e. deep fried cheesecake on a stick). These are the foodstuffs that fuel the locals. You also can't go anywhere without seeing a "horseshoe" on the menu. Toast, 1/2 lb. of meat, frenchfries and a "cheese" sauce over the top.

We have a handful of places that stray from the pack but, they are few and far between. I'm better off eating in.

Chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy, fried catfish and BBQ seem to be the national dishes of Oklahoma. Good BBQ is the easiest to find. So far the best Chicken fried steak is at Nelson's Buffeteria in downtown Tulsa. The other two, forget it. And you wash it down with iced tea, unsweetened. For the best sweet iced tea you have to go to Mobile, Alabama.

It is good to be a BBQ Judge.  And now it is even gooder to be a Steak Cookoff Association Judge.  Life just got even better.  Woo Hoo!!!

So true.

And let's not forget coney dogs and gyros. Sometimes it seems like every block in metro Detroit has a coney/Greek place.

Montreal, 3:30 A.M. Shish taouk sandwich, pizza by the slice, and of course... POUTINE!

Tajanna, your post clearly indicates how very different Quebecers are from Ontarians, despite the fact we live in the same country. These donutes of wich you speak seem to be popular in your area, while here in mine, nobody I know has ever heard of them.

Hey Nero,

I'm not a Kalamazooan, I'm a Charlevoixan......

However, I've spent some time down there with friends etc.

They still have good bands at Club Soda?

emhahn--

If there are good bands anywhere in this town it's at Soda.

No food there though. :blink:

Here in South Florida, we've got every variety of Latin food, starting with Cuban but continuing through Nicaraguan, Mexican, Peruvian and so on. Also Jamaican (jerk chicken, curry goat, etc.) and of course bagel shops and delis.
