OP here. I live a bit away from St Louis. The pizza at Imos is the staple for st Louis style pizza and it's an acquired taste to be sure. The crust is very thin, there's less sauce and more cheese than other thin crust pizza. There is also a different type of cheese (provel). I can see why you think that. The toasted ravioli is the best thing to have though.

I thought the toasted ravioli was also meh. It's so strange to hear locals speak with pride about their "specialities" when it is bland and okay at best. Italians might be annoyingly prideful but at least their food is good.

Root beer also sucks.

The best food I had in the US (besides Asian restaurants) was coconut shrimp in Florida, but I am not sure if it counts as an American thing.

I wanna visit the US someday to try it properly, as with all countries it seems like a mixed bag. Perhaps not an evenly mixed bag however, from an outside perspective pretty much all the seemingly best stuff is from the south, so I'd probably visit one of those states given the chance.

That being said, you guys really need to chill with how defensive you are about your food. In every thread about European food, even if the US isn't mentioned, it always turns into a shitfest once Americans perceive other countries making good food as an attack on their nation. I get that it's probably bait most of the time (let's be honest it's not hard to bait Euros) but you can be just as snobbish as the French and as obnoxious as Italians.

I think america just has shaky standards. There's nothing wrong with it in concept, when it's done well it's good, but when you actually go somewhere to eat in america a lot of the time the quality is awful.

>why the fuck can't I buy bacon in one piece in most supermarkets
>green beans galore
>barbecue is good but generally way too sweet for my taste (and North of the Ohio it sucks)

>"Northern" cuisine (read: most of the Midwest and East Coast north of DC) tends towards just alright with a few really good standouts, but is significantly more different from all the other cuisine I've had
>what I've had of cajun food during like two days in New Orleans was also excellent

The USA and Canada both have much less prominent dietary information available than Euro equivalents.

Do Americans really?

>> No.17133660

Green bean casserole is incredibly American; apple pie isn't that American but it's the combination of spices that makes it very American and the same applies for Pumpkin Spice whatever. Cranberry sauce, although almost exclusively a Thanksgiving thing, is also very American. Clam chowder is excellent, also very American even if very much limited to the Northeast. American breakfast sausage is pretty much unlike everything else I've had, and I had quite a bit of trouble trying to comprehend that as sausage. Since I went to college in the US as well, I got to see the wonder of Jungle Juice which I have basically never even seen an analogue anywhere else in the world. Fudge is actually quite American, there are similar things elsewhere but that one is very uniquely American. Jalapeno Poppers if you're going down the bar food route. More than anyone, Americans love to douse their food in sauces which is quite the surprise coming from Brazil which basically doesn't. Tater tots, oddly, are American as hell even if they don't manifest as such. Americans have this weird glorification of steak as the be all end all and are almost fetishistic with it. Americans might love broccoli more than anyone else in the world. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are incredibly American as well - in fact, the combination of Peanuts and Chocolate in dessert is in a way very uniquely American; most of the peanut-based desserts I knew tended towards the use of pure sugar and caramelization (like a peanut pie) whereas American cuisine tends to use it as one part of a mix. I adore pecan pie but I don't necessarily think a nut pie is that unique, I think the more unique thing with pecans is that Americans never developed a Pecan Flour for the purposes of confectionery. Oh, and I'm almost convinced I never saw a savoury pie in the US - always sweet ones.

I don't think any of these are what people picture when they picture American cuisine outside maybe PB&J

Chilli (with or without beans, and other extras)
Any kind of seafood "po boy", softshell crab especially.

I'm not the guy you are replying to but I also understand what he means. It's a good point. For example, "stereotypically american foods" includes the usual memes, burgers, pizza, hotdogs, etc. But they are not really that unique or interesting. Some "uniquely american foods" would be chilli, new england clam chowder, cajun dishes, pecan pie...I'd add pancakes to that because I've never seen them anywhere else but I don't know.

>What was unique about East Coast cuisine? I'm from there so I'm curious of your thoughts.
So the thing about East Coast cuisine is that while we think of all the sandwiches there (which I quite like), there's a lot of really "old-style" foods in the East Coast that stand out for not being traceable back to a specific immigrant culture and instead it indicates them originating from the colonial and pre-colonial periods. This doesn't happen with "Southern" cuisine (again, note, my experience with the South is much more limited than my experience with the North, it boils down to a lot of travel around Kentucky and some around Virginia) because I can point to a parallel in British cuisines that's been filtered by local ingredients and West African techniques. The fact there's a number of foods in New England and the Mid-Atlantic that make me do a double take because conceptually they have to originate in America - that makes it interesting. That's where things like apple pie and cranberry sauce and Old Bay spices originate, things that can only come from the US, and at best you're pointing at old English foods with 300 years worth of distance rather than merely 150 years. The only "Southern" food that I can say is definitely kind of a pre-colonial thing is cornbread, except that's also something we've notes of existing in the North as well and I'm sure I can get some decent cornbread if I drive like 50 miles out from Columbus.

>Did you get to have some good pastrami?
Yeah, whenever I visit my cousin in NJ (Trenton area), I make sure to take the train to NYC to hang out with some friends and I almost always have a pastrami sandwich while there, I love it.

Nah, most Euros have some variant of Chicken Fried Steak, whether that's the milanese of Italians or the schnitzel of Austrians or the kotlet of Poles. The idea of breaded and fried steak is common. What's not that common is the gravy, which in turn is a masive pointer to English-style gravys.

>> No.17140016

Going over it again:

This guy's getting it all wrong. Biscuits I'll actually give him as being an American variant of a quickbread and the specific method of American barbecue preparation is unique (although barbecue itself isn't), gravy most definitely isn't, and fried chicken is actually Scottish in origin.

This one gets it better. Chili - yes; Clam chowder - yes; cajun - sorta? I'll allow it; pecan pie - not quite but wholly understandable since to me what makes the pecan pie is the corn syrup. Pancakes exist everywhere, although the specific pancake representation doesn't.

A bunch of the ones I listed (>>17133660) apply, but if you want a short list:
>ginger ale
>root beer
>apple pie spice
>cranberry sauce
>clam chowder
>breakfast sausage
>green beans
>tater tots
>jalapeno poppers (bar food does count as unique food)
>the amount of sauces on everything
>steak as masturbation
>broccoli obsession
>the combo of peanut butter and chocolate
>peanut butter and jelly
>every variant of hot dog under the sun would apply but there seem to be two schools of logic - adding sauteed vegetables (East Coast), and adding a meat sauce (Midwest) - note, I have not gone much more South than Kentucky and West than Minnesota

The inherent issue of a lot of American foods is that since they're so common, it's easy to go "this isn't unique". But it's specifically that which you think isn't unique that is. I've essentially switched my entire diet from when I was living in Brazil because certain things are completely impossible to find. I love green corn on the cob, I despise sweetcorn on the cob because it's like biting into sugar. I haven't made some basic rice and beans in years because I can't find the correct rice. I can't find the traditional Brazilian roll because no one will make it ever. And that's fine! It's fine to be like that.
