My sister lived in Springfield, Il for several years and talked about the Horseshoe sandwichs. what were those again?

And, what was the loose meat sandwiches that they used to talk about on Roseanne Barr's show all the time? Was there such a thing in Illinois?

My wife and her family are Norwegian, they ruin every Holiday with Lutefisk. Its a white fish soaked in Lye, then rinsed and boiled.

But I do enjoy the lefsa, as bad as the preparation sounds. You take mashed potatoes, add flour. Then you roll it thin and cook it like a tortilla. Spread on a little butter and sprinkle on some sugar and roll it up. Those are hard to pass up, even if it does make you wonder which is the food and which is the napkin.

You pick the region

How about:

Hoagies or is that ... Po'boys or is that ... Grinders or is that ... Subs (submarines) or is that ... Wedges or . . .

I'm sure there are more names for the above mentioned sandwich.

Take care,

Regional Food Specialties

When traveling to the Kansas City or St. Louis areas, a must stop for lunch is one of the White Castle restaurants (http://www.whitecastle.com/) for some of their classic square “mini-hamburgers”. Later in the day if in St. Louis, I generally try to stop at The Pasta House Company (http://www.pastahouse.com/) for one of their Italian specialties.

When visiting the Quad Cities of Illinois/Iowa, a “must” for those craving an unusual sandwich is the Maid Rite (http://www.maid-rite.com/food/food.shtml). This particular sandwich is probably what spawned the idea for the “Loose Meat” sandwich that was a staple on some of the later Roseanne television shows. Many of the local cafes also serve a sandwich called a “Steamburger” that approximates the Maid Rite.

A Western Kansas specialty that I have encountered most often in Russell, Osborne, and Rooks counties is the Bierock (http://www.kitchenproject.com/html/bierocks.htm). A pocket sandwich that is absolutely delicious. The pocket is of any variety of “yeast-type” bread filled with a mixture of ground meat and sauerkraut (or more traditonally, cabbage) that is baked until golden brown and delicious. It sounds strange, but the sauerkraut has no “cabbage” taste when this dish is properly prepared - - it was a staple of the school lunch menu in the high school where I taught in the 1980s and 1990s.

When traveling nearer home, I can’t resist an occasional stop at Lambert’s Café (http://www.throwedrolls.com/) for some of their home-made throwed rolls with equally good home-made sorghum and delicious pass-arounds. They are located in Sikeston, Missouri just off of Interstate 55 on Malone Street.

When spending time on my farm in Union County, Illinois, one of my favorite places is The Giant City Lodge (http://dnr.state.il.us/lodges/gc.htm) their specialties include home-made chicken and dumplings served family style with Southern Fried Chicken. They also have delicious steaks - - their filet mignon is a must not miss for me.

When traveling between the Quad Cities and Carbondale, I can’t miss stopping in Illinois’ Amish country for dinner. The Dutch Kitchen (http://www.rockome.com/Html/dutchkitchen/dk.html) is a café specializing in Pennsylvania Dutch meals with a sweet and sour salad bar, and fabulous home-made deserts. My usual is the Dutch Sausage Dinner with a slice of Shoo-Fly-Pie Alamode.

A trip to the San Francisco Bay Area, Las Vegas, or Reno isn’t complete for me without a stop at a Pepper Mill Restaurant for a bowl of their delicious sour dough bread-bowl chili.

When in the Springfield, Illinois area (served at many local cafes) or in Hays, Kansas at the Pheasant Run Restaurant on Vine Street; the special treat is a Horse Shoe Sandwich. These are open-faced sandwiches served on toast covered with fresh French Fries and smothered in a delicious sharp cheddar cheese sauce - - the meat varies by the interpretation of the restaurateur - - I have had turkey, hamburger, chicken, or pork versions of the same sandwich and they have all been very good.

A trip to Grant County, Wisconsin, is never quite complete without a stop in one of the local cafes for Cornish Pasty. It is basically a meat pocket-pie (the meat varies by interpretation of the restaurateur - - the tradition is for lamb, but more frequently beef or pork is found) - - the pocket is basically an 8” round crust that is filled with meat, sliced potatoes, onions and seasonings after which the crust is sealed around the edges making a half-round finger-food delicacy. It’s even better when topped off with a crock of Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese soup. When available, Lefse (http://www.mnwebsteps.com/grover/lefse.htm) is a wonderful finish to such a meal - - I like to add a “Southern” twist and dip my Lefse in sorghum.

If anyone travels the RT80 in PA . I can't remember the exit number (because they changed them) but it is the Tannerville mall exit, make a right at the end of the ramp and them a right again at the end of the road drive 3 miles or less and look for Taste Buds for the best Fried Chicken!!

Thumbs up Yet another

Kevin..
Thanks for your list..I'll be sure to print that..


While in the Va Beach, Va. area, I make it a point to never leave the area without visiting the:
Pungo Pizza & Ice Cream
1824 Princess Ann, Virginia Beach, VA 23456


Ask for the "House Special"..Seafood Pizza..
Start the meal off by ordering homemade sourdough breadsticks dipped in melted butter/garlic. Unless you're a really big eater, stay with just an order of 6 breadsticks..You'll wanta leave room for the Seafood Pizza`!
Just outa of this world, is the only way to describe it~
The homemade dough, top'd with fresh tomatoes, scallops, flounder, crabmeat, cheese and the house's special seasoning..
I can smell it even now~!~
Afterwards, try some of their fantastic ice cream..

(I've never made it that far...lol)
ciao

Look for the Tamale Festival in November if near I 10 in Indio, California.
I found the most delicious treats at small farmer's markets, the kind they have once a week in many towns in California. They also always have fresh and tasty vegetables. Oh, and flowers.

Austin, Texas

Artz Rib House at south Lamar & Bluebonnet has free live music every night of the week and (IMHO) the best baby back ribs in the universe. Bluegrass jam every Sunday afternoon and bluegrass on Sunday nights; otherwise a variety of folk, country, blues, etc. Art wins awards every year. Funky, moderate prices.

Thumbs up The Kentucky Hot Brown

Another traditional Kentucky dish is the Kentucky Hot Brown. This is popular after Thanksgiving or Christmas when there's a lot of turkey left over.

It was originally created by the chef of the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky and is offered in most restaurants in Kentucky. There are variations of this, but the original contained only turkey. Now, some restaurants serve it with turkey and ham or country ham. Very rich and very good!

Ted Peters

If you are near St. Pete, you should try Ted Peters. They've been serving beachgoers and fishermen for more than 50 years. We've been going there since 1965.

The restaurant is on the east side of Pasadena Avenue. That's the left hand side as you are heading from St. Pete to St. Pete Beach.

Their specialty is smoked fish: mackerel, mullet or salmon. And their fish spread is famous, too.

My family has always gone for the hamburgers. I know several people that have never even tried the fish since the burgers are so good. I can never decide whether to order fish or burger, so I usually try to convince Brett to order fish so I can get a burger and share his fish.

The German potato salad is to die for. It must not be authentic, since I can't stand German potato salad from anywhere else. It's mostly potatoes, onions and bacon. Not much sweet or sour.

Be sure and order a frosty mug of root beer if you aren't drinking beer.

The seating is mostly outdoors, but covered. There is a small dining room. I was in it for the first time in my life a year ago.

And if you are a fisherman and have a fresh catch, they'll smoke it for you. I think they charge $1 per pound to smoke your fish.

They are closed on Tuesdays, and they close at 7:30 p.m. other nights.
