5 LOCAL FOODS TO TRY IN THE US
Wondering what to eat in the US? No matter what state or city you visit, there are lots of different foods to try. Here are some of the most popular and quintessentially American foods to try.
1. CHICAGO-STYLE OR NEW YORK-STYLE PIZZA
Did you know that each person in America eats approximately 46 slices of pizza every year? It’s clear that pizza is a very popular food in the US! Every pizza restaurant makes pizza a little bit differently, but it’s all delicious.
Different regions of the US are known for different styles of pizza. If you visit Chicago, you’ll find that it’s famous for deep-dish pizza, which is very different from the thin-crust New York-style pizza. There are quite a few pizza chain restaurants, but I would encourage you to visit one-of-a-kind pizzerias in whatever cities you visit.
2. APPLE PIE
While you can find many types of pie and other pastries in the US, the most iconic is apple pie. If you have the opportunity to visit a farmer’s market or a local bakery, you can’t go wrong with a delicious slice of apple pie! It’s great when served cold or warm, and it’s especially delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
While Tex-Mex food is popular all across the US, there are a few places that specialize in this Mexican-inspired cuisine. There’s so much variety in America’s version of Mexican food. Whether you enjoy spicy foods or not, you’re sure to find something you enjoy!
If you visit Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, or California – which all share borders with Mexico – you’ll find tons of innovative Tex-Mex restaurants with delicious tacos, burritos, salsas, fajitas, enchiladas, chili con carne, chips and queso, nachos, and more. In many of these areas, you can find food trucks serving freshly-made food to take on the go.
BBQ is popular all over the US and in many other countries. However, American barbecue is strongly associated with the Kansas City, Missouri; Memphis, Tennessee; and Austin, Texas. It usually consists of smoked meat with a tangy, sweet, and slightly spicy sauce. You’ll find great BBQ joints all over the South and Midwest, though, so you don’t have to go to these barbecue capitals of the world to experience amazing brisket or ribs.
If you’re traveling from someplace far away, you can take a bottle of BBQ sauce home with you. It’s a great gift and a way to experience exciting new flavors at home. There are tons of different barbecue flavors to enjoy! You can enjoy the sauce on chicken, pork, beef, or just about anything you want to.
If you are trying to decide what to eat in the US, hamburgers are an obvious choice! While hamburgers are present all over the world, they are definitely associated with the US. Just about every restaurant seems to serve hamburgers, from fast-food restaurants to gourmet establishments and everything in between. You’ll find a lot of variety when it comes to hamburgers in the US. Every restaurant puts its own unique spin on this classic dish, and you can often choose from many different types of cheese and other toppings. You can even get vegan or vegetarian hamburgers in many places.
