Falls City beer too.

Weidemann is still flowing in the Queen City. Mt Adams is still a great place to go bar hopping. Used to love to head up there after watching the Big Red Machine back in the days of Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, etc.

Okay Norby -- Your mention of rommegrot reminds me about the very nice little town of Decorah, Iowa. Rommegrot is a pudding of heavy cream that is two halves butter and a third half made up of milk liquids and sugar. Be forewarned -- don't take too big a serving. I first had it at Nordic Fest, always held the last July weekend.

Decorah is a classically traditional small town in a pretty setting in the far NE corner of Iowa. There is a city campground though I've not stayed there. We've gone down for the day from Minnesota's Forestville State Park (electric sites available; dump station). I do see that the Dayton House Cafe has "Daily Luncheon specials, featuring Norwegian specialties, soups and sandwiches. Kringle, krumkakke, rommergrot, almond puff, lefse, and other Norwegian treats available."

This is one of the best. . .

threads I have enjoyed so far on this forum. One of the best parts of traveling is getting to sample the regional foods and flavors. Following the conversation this week has taken me all over the states and reminded me of fun times I'd nearly forgotten. Thanks to all who have described their regional favorites. Anyone else have a favorite? I'd love to hear about it. I guess next summer's trips will have to be built around some of these tasty destinations!

Tampa Spot

For anyone visiting Tampa, I strongly suggest La Teresita, a Cuban restuarant that is an original, affordable eatery. It is on Columbus ave just around the corner fron the Yankees Baseball Complex. There are many famous places listed in guidebooks but this West Tampa eatery is the real deal for "regulars" eating their daily fare.

La Teresita, 3246 Columbus Drive, 2 blocks east of Dal Mabry

regional food specialties

Here in ElPaso we have the best Mexican food in the southwest.
I'm not a booster it's just a fact. You will do just fine stopping at almost any *real* Mexican restaurant in town.
A guaranteed excellent meal is AVILAS on Mesa. On the west side get off the freeway at Sunland Park drive going east--about one mile make a left on Mesa-go 3 blocks big sign on right. Big parking lot.You'll wanna try the chili con queso. Very popular with the locals. 915-584-3621 res not necessary. I really like this place.

If you are in the vacinity of Yellowstone National Park, and the town of West Yellowstone, MT, you are close to heaven and one of the best places for breakfast in the US.

To find the place, you'll have to drive about a dozen miles northwest out of West Yellowstone on Hwy 287. Just before the Madison River flows into Quake Lake, formed by a massive earthquake there in 1959, you'll see a small roadside sign that says "Good Breakfasts", beside a rutted dirt road that leads a couple hundred yards distance to a small private campground situated amidst the ponderosa pines along the river.

The camp office/combination general store/small cafe/log-sided cabin is the source of the best breakfasts that you'll find anywhere.
Early Montana mornings are typically cold, especially at high elevations as this, even in mid-July. The cafe will have it's heat on you can be sure, and the aroma of homemade pancakes, sausages, bacon, hugh fresh sticky buns and strong black coffee, together with the smell of the pine forest all blend together as the view of the cold runnning river coming directly from the park refreshes your spirits and your appetite.

The best tables are on a knotty pine panelled enclosed porch overlooking the river where you'll look out to see that not much has changed here since Teddy Roosevelt's days in the park, and if you're carefull not to leave many tracks when you depart for home, it will remain this way for generations to come.

Thumbs up

Globetrotter,

Welcome to the Forum,
I love Greenwich Conn, used to stay at the Motor-Inn in front of the Island shuttle boat in the Sixties...& also at the mansion of my friend the late J.Hirshorn.

Index to Regional Foods

Okay -- here it is. Continue to post if you'd like and I will update the index if needed. I know we're only scratching the surface. So think about it and post your discoveries here.

Mrs. Stream left Thursday for Maui and I'm finally managing to get this done. Too bad she is going to miss out on the big show.

Thank you to all contributors -- and keep it going if you have an inspiration for products we'd want to use if camping in your area!

Birch Beer

Is a carbonated soda-pop. This stuff is non-alcoholic, and pretty much tastes like carbonated Pepto-Bismol. It is available in three colors, Red, Brown, and White. Pretty much only available in areas of Pennsylvania, New York state, Ohio, etc.

Bump. Thanks, wkerfoot, for the lead back to this tasty thread. I hope some of you will enjoy reading here and update us with your own regional food and drink specialties. Finding great food along the way is a big part of the fun of 'streaming! ~G
