Po-boys, at least one fried seafood, one roast beef, and one Italian sausage/meatball
Char-grilled oysters
Oysters Rockefeller
Angelo Brocato's gelato and canolis and spumone
Creole Creamery ice cream
Bahn Mi sandwiches (Vietnamese po-boy)
Barbecue shrimp (no resemblance at all to barbecue)
Gumbo, at least one seafood and one chicken+andouille
Jambalaya
Crawfish etouffee
White chocolate bread pudding
Cochon de lait (a roast pork dish)
Boiled crawfish

taco truck food. just not on taco row, that place is not safe.
my dad's grilling skills.
almonds. (we have them on trees! )
cheese. mostly cheddar, particularly squeaky cheese.
wine.
all sorts of fruit--you can pull over on the side of the road in and right outside of town and buy any fruit that's in season. there's a strawberry field on the way to target and you can buy flats of amazing strawberries for pretty cheap.

Oh yes - I can't believe I forgot the fruit! Right now we are in the height of peach season. These wonderful folks are friends of mine. You should all visit their facebook page and buy their cookbook and stuff.

Oh yeah, New Orleans also has at least 3 breweries and one distillery (making rum).

Oh yeah, we also have grapefruit, satsumas (a type of mandarin orange or tangerine or something), and a local type of Meyer lemon.

Oh! Almonds. California grows ridiculous amounts of almonds. Also, rice.

I ask because I had a California burrito in Anaheim that was like a wet egg and sausage deal. I read on another site (Huffington?) that at least one NYC Mexican shop sells a "California burrito" that is just a bean and cheese burrito. (WTH?)
Yeah, the former. Every California burrito I've had is that basic combo. Except they usually don't have sour cream or guac unless you ask for it here.

I've had the carne asada/fries/sour cream combo, the asada/fries/pico and the asada/fries/sour cream/guac. The latter of those three is my favorite, though I usually go with the first one. The one with pico de gallo seemed a bit weird to me.

Fish tacos were supposedly first brought into the US here, though I couldn't tell you where to get the best fish tacos.
Heather introduced me to this place down just before the border that makes some of the best Mexican seafood dishes I've ever had. Fish Mart - San Diego

She was taken there the first time by a friend in her AF unit who's family lives just across the border, but likes to go there. It's legit goodness.

I love the carne asada quesadilla at Adalbertos as well (though it's rolled like a burrito). The thing is ridiculous, I'm pretty sure it's 1lb of steak in there. Pretty sure Ho-dad's out in OB is a must as well, I know I'll go back, though I probably won't get a double next time, owww.

I believe it. I don't get that far south too often. If I do, it's probably to go to the outlet mall.

I've found you get get a pretty solid San Diego-Mexican experience from most of the -erto's. Some of them are a bit greasier than others though. I was disappointed in a Huffington Post guest article recently that suggested people visiting San Diego look to eat at FRESH MXN (formerly Santana's). I've been to that place as Santana's and as FRESH MXN, and it was below average either way. I swear they stay in business just because they're a drive-thru.

Hodads...YES. I haven't been there in awhile. There was a stretch a few years ago where I was probably going there once a month. More than that and you're on the verge of death anyway. I heard they revamped the OB location and they have a spot inside Petco Park now which I hear is now the best place to get food at Petco Park.

Ginger beef! Chinese food invented here in Calgary and hard to find anywhere else (from what I hear). It's pretty good.

Depending on your palate, you could also go to Tubby Dog for some ridiculous hot dogs. Highly recommended is Sherm's Ultimate Gripper. Here's the menu.

San Antonio has a hot dog joint called Chicago dogs, and they get it right

A German cafe downtown called Shilohs

In my hometown, Beaumont, we had mostly Cajun-style food -- nowhere near as good as the NOLA stuff bob is talking about, but that's what we had. There was one local delicacy, though, called barbecued crab, and it was pretty fantastic. Not crab that was barbecued, probably like bob's BBQ shrimp. I ate 14 one time and my mouth was so salty I couldn't taste any more. So I ate a few plates of fried shrimp.

Austin has some pretty great casual food overall. Central TX -- the area surrounding Austin -- is home of the greatest brisket in the world. Other areas have their sauces and special cuts, but we just know how to smoke meat. The Tex-Mex is decent here, as well. Migas, an egg dish including cheese and pieces of tortilla chips put on a flour tortilla with salsa, is common locally, as are breakfast tacos. We were one of the big hubs of food trailers, arguably the most important if you're talking airstream trailer kitchens surrounded by outdoor seating. The New Tavern movement, and the revival of cocktails in general, was pretty big here several years ago. Whole Foods, which technically not a local delicacy, is a national food fixture that came out of Austin. Not far from here is Brenham, TX, home of Blue Bell Ice Cream, and nearby Czech-settled regions modified the traditional kolache into a breakfast meat pastry we call a kolache.

But I actually live in Chicago, and we tend to think that we do Chicago dogs RIGHT.

Seriously, though, Chicago-style hot dogs are delicious.
