DON'T KNOCK IT UNTIL YOU TRY IT
Regional foods can often seem odd — unless, of course, they're from your region. America is a big place, and in nearly every part of the country there are specialities loved — and passionately defended — by locals that outsiders might think they can't stomach. But considering regional dishes are popular for a reason, chances are if you gave them a shot, you'll be surprised to find yourself enjoying delicious foods you'd never even heard of before. So take note of these unique local foods and try them when you get the chance.
