Uncle Bob - you can keep the catfish. I'll take Gulf Coast shrimp. However, I want all the tamales, sweet potatoes, watermelon, pecan pies, pralines and Mississippi Mud Pie!

Here, I would recommend:

Pit-cooked, hickory-smoked pork barbecue
Fried catfish or crappie
Salt-cured country ham
Grits

U-turn cakes - crab cakes that are so good, you will literally make a u-turn and go back for another.

Fried Lake trout.

Kiana's Cheese steak.

Anything at lexington market - Huge food market with fresh and prepared food. awesome place.

A chicken box - it's just fried chicken and potatoe wedges, and you have to order a "half and half" with it. a half and half is 1 part lemonade and 1 part iced tea.

Those are a few things baltimore, maryland are known for.

Lots and lots of fresh seafood! Unless of course you wanted to eat kangaroo, emu, crocodile or whitchety grubs!

According to several Asians I know, Perth's dim sum restaurants are better than those in Hong Kong.

Must try - local wineries and breweries.

Stay away from most of our Mexican restaurants. I am yet to hear of an American or Mexican (or anyone used to real Mexican food) that has enjoyed what is served here.

Sorry if I sounded as though I were scoffing. That was not my intention.
