White people Mexican food. More cheddar cheese and ground beef you an shake a stick at.

As for noteworthy places, there isn't much. One of our newest local breweries, Wildcard, is pretty damn solid for dark beers. A newer coffee bar called Coffee Bar makes the only real espresso north of Chico and west of Arcata.

That's about it. See the sights, bring your own food. Redding, CA.

I guess I'd be foisting meat pies on you all. I don't know that there's anything quintessentially Auckland, foodwise. The main difference from other cities in NZ is the increased prevalence of cuisines from other cultures. At least, within my price range.

that's the classic, although I'm quite partial to a pepper steak or a potato top when they're available.

My home town of Rotorua has lots of good pies, and some of the bakeries have won multiple awards in the national pie competitions. There's two bakeries that both do fantastic sweet lamb curry pies.

Pulled pork
Chicken pastry
Hush puppies

There are a couple of hole in the wall places I'd take you to so you could get a burger "Carolina style" even though I don't eat them that way. Mustard, onions, chili, and coleslaw.

Man this makes me think my town now (south of Houston) has nothing special.

But if you came to visit my old stomping grounds....the Oregon coast here's a few must haves: Clam chowder, the Pig N' Pancake restaurant (one in Seaside and one in Astoria) is a good place for this. Tillamook ice cream straight from the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Fresh fried clams (geoduck) that you dug yourself....they're fairly easy to dig at low tide and it's part of the experience. Dungeness crab...again, you can get this yourself which makes it even more awesome. And you might as well eat at the Pier 11 restaurant, it's right on the Columbia river so you can watch the ships, fishing boats, and tugs working while you enjoy some steak and seafood.

Kangaroo steak is just kangaroo steak. You can get kangaroo sausages as well. It's pretty good - taste and texture is a lot like beef.
