    Down the shore in NJ to get a slice of tomato pie -- more sauce and less cheese than pizza.

    I've lived in East Central Florida since 1992. Florida has no real culture of its own, but we have a plethora of "imports" to choose from, including:

    Dried mopane worms (but actually caterpillars!) were a great protein snack when I lived in Botswana. About the size of an index finger and taste somewhat like roast chestnuts. Here - don't they look appetising! :D

    We've got lots of Mexican places here but they've pretty much become generic and inbred.
    No steakhouse, no good Chinese and one fair Bbq place that closes early and isn't open on weekends.
    I'm starving here.

    In the South West the Navajo Taco is a popular specialty. Similar to a taco, made up of beans, cheese, onions. ground beef, lettuce all wrapped in fry bread. The 50/50 burger is also pretty popular ~ 1/2 beef 1/2 bacon cooked slowly to prevent shrinkage and sever on a good bun.

    Thanks. We are hoping for it to be just a windy rainstorm and little. Hope not to drive into flooded roads.

    I've been to MD, made steamed crabs, had crab cakes at a restaurant overlooking the Chesapeake, and have eaten scrapple and maple syrup. However, I must argue that Old Bay is slightly inferior to the crab seasoning that's sold by the pound at most crab shacks.
