South African's are big fans of braais (sounds like: bry-s) which you guys will know as BBQs.

In my city though, the local "delicacy" are bunny-chows, which is a hot/spicy Indian curry, served in a hollowed out loaf of bread, and eaten with the hands if you're up to the challenge (It's a bit of an art)

They are most commonly a mutton curry, but Chicken, Prawn and Bean varieties exist as well, as some of our Indian cultures can't always eat meat for religious reasons which means the Beans (which are also cheap) are the second most commonly available variety.

We have a large Indian population (the largest Indian population in the world outside of India), which came from indentured labour which sugar-cane farmers bought out from about 1860-1911 and many stayed after their contracts were up and settled.
During our Apartheid years, populations were segregated, so these Indian labourers would buy meals from restaurant' windows which they had to take away, and packaging being very limited back then, their curries were often sold to them in hollowed out loaves of bread and so this meal has become a favourite with South Africans, and in particular us Durbanites.

Used to Love Fresh Steamed Blue Crab back in my days staying with my Uncle's Family in Wilmington, Delaware, during the early Air Force years, before Vietnam...sadly in 1974 I developed one Hell of a reaction to Crab Meat....no rhyme or reason, but that ended my days with the Blue Crab meals....:(

Friday night Fish Fry. Long standing tradition in Upstate NY.
Wisconsin is famous for Fish Fry Friday Nights as well, we always make sure we have a Friday open when visiting the wife's folks and family there.....people here in Ohio have no clue as to what they are, or what they are missing:

Great story Mr.Painter, and the bunny-chow looks delicious.
Nevada with it's basque sheep herding history has popular basque family dining. You sit at a big table elbow to elbow with other patrons and staff brings big bowls of soup, fries, beans, bread,salad which are passed around, wine too. Individual entrees are then served with usually a choice of sweetbreads, steak, chorizo, pork chops, or fish. Nice way to meet strangers and spill food on them.
Reno has an annual big BBQ rib cook-off competition that draws competitors and hungry tourists from all over. The smell of over 30 tons of smoking pork ribs during the week must drive local dogs nuts.
No regional cuisine dominates, but around my house the BBQ goes year round for grilled salmon,trout,streaks, tri-tip roasts,shrimp, chicken, veggies and Polynesian marinated meats. Simple hamburgers are probably contenders for regional cuisine. It all tastes good!

Hoot, When I got that Little Red Flyer wagon for my birthday I thought I died and went to Heaven. You think it's just a red wagon but if you look at the bend in the handle, that is so when you kneel in it and push with your other foot you can steer better. Big tires, bent handle, a bicycle, some rope and a few years prior to a physics class! Still have the scars and the memory of Mr Lawrence saying.... It's ok, when he gets better he can fix the fence! Not to hijack the thread, it is Striped Bass in my town, Blackfish and Seabass are also really good. I really enjoy going to my Brother in laws house in Severna Park, MD for Blue Crabs.

Being the health food fanatics we are known to be here in upstate NY I would say Buffalo Wings rank as #1. I could be wrong but in my neck of the woods #2 would be a Reuben sandwich.
