** Upper Peninsula of UsefulNotes/{{Michigan}}: Pasties, ya? ([[IThoughtItMeant Get your mind out of the gutter]]--see the bit about Britain below.) Also, Mackinac Island--between the UP and LP--has its famous fudge (it may be stereotypically touristic, but it is ''delicious'').

Added DiffLines:

*** For the record, a proper borscht is actually a ''stew'' for all the variation the dish allows, one requirement always stands: it must be so thick that a spoon must stand upright in it, which in practice means that there's a lot more of the solid stuff than in the soup proper, which is a textbook definition of a stew.

** DeepSouth: Grits, corn bread, biscuits & gravy, black-eyed peas, and the occasional Appalachian moonshine. Meat is generally fresh from the hog, particularly ham or bacon. Fried food popular, especially chicken. Lots of stuff doused in ketchup, which probably doesn't help the obesity problem. Sweet tea. Coca-Cola is so ubiquitous that [[{{BrandNameTakeover}} 'coke' can be applied to Pepsi without batting an eye]], although Dr Pepper is also popular (the stereotype about RC Cola, on the other hand, seems totally without merit). Bourbon or mint julips for the FatSweatySouthernerInaWhiteSuit. Sweet potatoes. Georgia peaches, pecans, and peanuts.

*** There are those, who will make a clear distinction between borscht and any other kind of soup. In fact, some will insist that borscht is ''not'' soup, it's something else. Few will be able to explain why, though, other than "tradition".

** Occasionally lutefisk will garner a mention, of only for its [[{{Squick}} Squicktasticness]]. The same but more so for Icelandic hakarl (a particular kind of shark, fermented to get rid of toxic levels of ammonia) and Swedish surströmming (fermented herring that bloats the can it's packed in -- not to be eaten indoors).

* Middle Eastern: Either gets lumped in with Indian food or consists of barely edible kebabs made from bits of animal that even dogs won't eat. If you got lucky and your writer has actually been to the Middle East, there will be falafel, hummus (which is becoming more popular in the US), tabbouleh, and pita bread. Turkish coffee may make an appearance (note: to [[MisplacedNationalism protect your ears and brain]], [[SchmuckBait do not discuss]] [[SeriousBusiness the appropriateness]] [[FandomBerserkButton of its name]]).

** UsefulNotes/PacificNorthwest - Asian fusion, massive amounts of fish, and gallons of [[Series/TwinPeaks damn good]] coffee. (This applies to the [[StargateCity Canadian portion]] of the region as well.) Washington State is famous for its apples (more than half the apples consumed in the United States grow in Washington) and in recent years has developed a positive reputation for its wines.

** Japanese media has a peculiar obsession with curry (wich is absolutely unlike the Indian one, and is closer to the British version, originating from the galleys of the British-built Japanese battleships in the early [=20th=] century) and ramen, to the point that all other noodles in the Japanese cuisine (even natively Japanese ones, like the buckwheat ''soba'' and the thick wheat ''udon'') ''do not exist''.

** As do the homecooked dishes like the humbly nikujaga (a beef-and-potato stew with a sweet soy sauce) and tonjiru (a pork and potato miso soup), which feed more people than any other elaborate preparations. They might be ''shown'', but are never elaborated upon, unless that's a point, like with nabemono (hotpot) dishes, that, as communal affairs, are usually used as a shorthand for the PowerOfFriendship.
