What is your favorite traditional American fare, /ck/?
I like these little places you find in the South that you'll only find by driving through a neighborhood. Usually it's an old home or grocery store converted into a restaurant.
The story behind the restaurant in the picture is that the blacks would enter in the front, and the whites would secretly pick up food in the back. The opposite of what you'd expect.
Most places have a funny story like that.
I like hot tamales, chili, gumbo, boudin, barbecue, burgers, chili dogs, fried chicken, collard greens...
Hamburger steak and gravy with mashed potatoes and green beans.
love those sorts of places as well. I don't know when this "lol small towns so creepy" thing will die but imo loading up with some friends and taking a weird road home for spring break stopping in at local places is fun as shit.
>doe's eat place
Holy shit, I ate there years ago when I did a road trip through the South and have been trying to remember it's name.
My gf at the time ordered tamales and got a steak, because that's what they were supposed to be known for.
They didn't have prices on the menu, so you can imagine my surprise when they brought us the bill.
The first restaurant I worked at was old and had been built for segregation. You had the upscale front of the restaurant for whites and the back ~1/3 of the place was called "the Jamaican room" Blacks entered in the back and there was no dress code, it was more casual. They actually had a completely different menu for them back in the day.
Yes, it was actually kind of hip for young people to eat with the negroes. This was in Florida in the 50s and 60s I guess, but things didn't change very much even when segregation was abolished. It took a while
New England clam chowder
NYC dirty water dog with mustard and kraut
Coal oven pizza
Piedmont smoked shoulder w/mustard sauce
Blue crabs boiled in Old Bay
Dry Aged Prime rib eye, med rare
Biscuits and gravy
Italian cold cut hoagie/sub/grinder
Chicken and dumplings
Boston baked beans
Corned beef and cabbage
Fried oyster po' boy
Smoked Pacific salmon/black cod
Liver and onions
Too many to choose from.
If I had to pick one, it would be barbecue, though. Whether it's pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken, or turkey. There's nothing like a piece of smoked slow cooked barbecue.
Get fucked you shithead.
NY here too, and I'd down some meatloaf and mershed perterters just as soon as I'd eat barbacoa or a bahn mi. You probably like Bill DeBlasio and live in Manhattan, yuppie piece of shit.
Wait a minute.....did someone just prank me into getting on tumblr? Because it sure stinks like it in here.
>still trying to validate the term "white privilege"
GTFO and go back to your stinky lesbian drum circle.
>blue crabs boiled in old bay
>oyster po' boy
Those are good but you should try steaming the crabs with vinegar, butter, beer, and old bay. It comes out amazing.
I'm from Louisiana btw
>worst food on the planet
Why don't you come on up to Scandinavia? If you think American cuisine is bland and tasteless, then you clearly haven't tasted Scandinavian food. Doesn't get more bland and tasteless than that.
Except is isn't true. Many of NYC's most popular and best rated restaurants are considered New American, which pretty much means upscale takes on regional American cooking using high end ingredients. Places like Per Se, Gotham Bar and Grill, Gramercy Tavern, Annisa, Union Sq Cafe, Juni, Estela and the River Cafe may all be relentlessly upscale, but the food they serve is American.
I've eaten more kinds of foods than you can even think of, so don't even try to bait me, kid. I've had more spices, more vegetables, more meats, more grains, from more countries, regions, provinces, islands, states, counties, and everywhere else. I live for adventurous foods, and have been my whole life. You can cram that garlic clove straight up your ass, because you played yourself.
Welcome to the U.S.
Those names all everywhere. Moving west was generally a pretty shitty experience for those who went first.
Do women shit up most boards? Shouldn't you be on /tv/ crying about Snape?
If you want some decent American food in NYC, check out Virgil's Barbecue near Times Square.
I wouldn't necessarily say that. Yet your are kind of right in the the most traditional American food is rooted in Anglo and Scandinavian cuisine.
The availability of very high-quality ingredients means that we're not particularly invested in transforming anything or being inventive.
You do what the director tells you if you're not a bigger influence in the industry than they are.
It's how Halley Berry managed to ruin a couple films because she had more pole than the directors.
I have a German potato salad that kind of goes more into casserole territory because it's baked. It's something I eat for every thanksgiving and christmas. I don't really share recipes because it's just bomb as fuck. Then there's a cave-aged cheddar vegetable dish that's also baked.
Insanely decadent things that are only eaten on holidays. I'm not one for sharing my family recipes however, sorry.
He had to deal with the Hollywood "aristocracy." They don't give a shit about how you say things in your country. It's only now that we have international influences that it's considered stupid and ignorant not to use their lingo as it's used in their country.
This list is severely lacking in New Mexican food. Honestly, the world is lacking in New Mexican food. It's awesome and fairly distinctive but has little cultural presence outside the state and virtually none outside the US. I didn't know anything about until I dated a girl from there.
Why does "American food" have to only mean white American food? Tex-Mex and Chinese-American cuisines should absolutely be fair game.
That's not even really relevant. The phrase "There is nothing new under the sun" is especially true with food. The French didn't invent cheesemaking. Pasta isn't originally Italian. Hell, let's get even sillier with this: How can something possibly be considered authentically European if it uses New World crops? Chiles are from central and south America, ergo paprika isn't European, which means that no one in Hungary eats real Hungarian food!
You forgot Uruguay too
i don't live in cali nice try faggot. it's an objective truth.
the only reason someone would think socal doesnt have the best mexican food in the country is if you haven't been there.
if you can't figure it out you have poor reading comprehension.
you tried to be a cheeky redditor and made shitty joke because you couldn't handle being wrong.
and still now you continue "lol do u speak english ahah i totally didn't fully understand what you meant xD"
ya ok bud
i was going to take a picture out of my window so you could see nothing but dead trees and farm land, but i cant be fucked.
>the place with the biggest mexican population and most prevalent mexican culture in the us couldnt possibly have the best mexican food
how dumb are u m8
baja californian mexican food is objectively the best
Are you talking about traditional Mexican food, traditional Baja California food, or modern southern California food? None of your retarded statements are cohesive. I guess it really doesn't matter because Sonoran food is better.
Ok, try Biscuits and Gravy once.
Then get Biscuits and Gravy with two scrambled eggs. You're gonna have to trust me here, but take your knife and fork, and just cut it all up and mix it up together. Just mash it all together and eat it.
It'll look disgusting, but it will taste wonderful.
Close, but just cut it all up and mash it together.
The most American dish ever conceived is US military Chili Mac. Either MRE or straight from the chow hall will do. It's only potential competition is of course spam.
