Washington DC is melting pot of ethnicities, I tend to gravitate towards the Middle Easter and Korean foods the most. Love those flavor profiles. . .there is also GREAT salvadorian food everywhere, I could live off of papusas, chcharon, and the tripe, YUM.

I know MD is known for crab/crabcakes, VA has great Ham and peanuts, and seafood.

Do you get fiddlehead ferns where you are? My wifes family is from northern Maine and some in Mass. I have only had them a few times but they are great.

They are seriously a dime a dozen in the Burbs. There are 7 I can think of in Annandale that are 24hours, and all are equally delicious, just a matter of price difference. They make for phenomenal late night munchies on the rare occasion I/we get out to the bars for the night.

For all practical purposes Texas is it's own culinary region. The flags of Spain, France, Mexico, and a couple of different Texas Republic flags have all flown over what is now known as Texas. Bringing with them influence of different cultures.

Texas is big country and Beef is king. BBQ, smoked low and slow is sure to find a place at the top of the list. Tex-Mex cooking including Fajitas, chili con carne, many others have roots here. The gulf coast and deep southeast Texas also have a heavy Cajun influence bringing jambalaya, gumbos, and dirty rice to the party. We can't forget ranches, chuck wagons, and cattle drives bringing us chicken fried steaks, King Ranch Chicken, and many dutch oven specialties like cobblers and breads often cooked with coals from the camp fire.

Is my inner Texan showing again? Oops...just can't help it.
