.......that make your city your
city. i was reading thru a few posts & i mentioned 'quintessential foods' in the 'burgh, & as there's many newer discusscookers, i figured i'd post this so they could contribute.
so i'm a pittsburgher. 1 item that makes us, us is a primanti's sammich- meats, cheeses, other items (eggs & that if ya tack that onto your order)), then fries & slaw, piled on.
then there's pittsburgh-salads- lettuce, tomato, those usuals, then they pile on fries, provolone &/or mozzarella, then chix or beef. me & my mom got these so often when my Dad was busy. i'd drench my salad in bleu cheese.
the pizzas, the're great if made properly. there is mineo's, & aiello's is a competitor. both make great, great pies, although i prefer aiello's as thier crust is thicker & thier dinner salads/dressing, yep!
there's other foods, too, although other (non-pennsylvanian) regions also make these items, too, though. the frozen pierogies, they're produced here, although others make thier own themselves , also haluski (cabbage/drenched in butter/onions,haluski noodles, [2 kinds i've dined on:- thick & rustic, or egg noodles. i so prefer the egg-noodles.] usually some pepper.)
kep-utch, the edible sort- is made here, & clark-bars & klondikes.. hunt's or generic kep-utch makes me shudder.
then we have a dialect aptly named 'pittsburghese.' yins, sammich, dahntahn, jeet yet, 'iggle, chip-chop ham, blitzburgh, pop, spikot, stillers, picksburgh, worsh, there's so many others than these.....
there's the strip district that includes many, many items & eateries. penzy spices sold there. there's the southside, that's where the alcohol is quite abundant, & i'm putting that very gently. the pens & the stillers.
wholey & thier seafoods.
& during Christmas & the remainder of winter, the decorate most of the city so laboriously, amazing.
so, your city is great for.....
