Foods or meals you don't find in restaurants

Here might be an interesting topic.

One day I was making a much requested passed down family recipe for "City Chicken". While making it I realized something....... You can't get this meal in any grocery store (anymore), and aside from a couple polish restaurants in Hamtramick, Michigan this ever so requested comfort food meal isnt availble in any restaurant. (I'm hundreds of miles from Hamtramick, MI)

Does anyone else know of any other "meals" OR "foods" that fall in this same category OR have become extinct like City Chicken ????

I'm sure just about any kind of casserole you might make at home is not going to be easily found in a restaurant.

Are you originally from Hamtrammick? When I was a girl, we lived in Michigan (parents immigrated to US in '66), and my dad loved the place......

So, now you have to give the recipe for your City Chicken!!!

It's been over 20 years since I saw chicken Kiev on a menu.

Don't be too quick to judge, they're just looking for their nuggets.
