If I visited your city...

...what would I *need* to try?

I think in Seattle, it's pretty clear whatcha gotta do...
- Get some fresh wild salmon in all it's glorious forms. Smoked, seared, cured, raw, grilled, baked, planked... any way you want it, you can get it.
- Shoot some fresh Hood Canal oysters.
- Have some Dungeness crab, preferably pulled out of the ocean that day.
- Cream cheese hot dog (w/grilled onions and sriracha) - don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

I'll probably think of more later. How 'bout your hometown?

My hometown has nothing, but where I live has a couple of things of note, I guess. It's not the best area for restaurants that aren't big chains, but there are a couple of things I would certainly say people should try.

We have really good sushi.

There's one hot dog place that does things right. I mean, absolutely right. Of the 10 most delicious dogs I've ever had, at least 8 of them, including the entire top 5 are from this place.

Do they have a Chicago-style hot dog?

San Diego is home to the California Burrito and carne asada fries (or as Wikipedia wants to call it, "Mexican poutine"...or as Jon wants to call it, "Mexi-fries".

Fish tacos were supposedly first brought into the US here, though I couldn't tell you where to get the best fish tacos.

If you were to come through Memphis, you would have to try some pork BBQ. I think the best use of it is BBQ nachos, personally.

Ah...good

My bad. I remember you talking about them with Mara in your blog...in my mind I connected the two.

We have some darn good California burritos and carne asada fries. But not on par at all with San Diego.

We also have good Chinese food. But not as good as San Francisco or Los Angeles.

I guess being in the middle of the state, we just get what everybody else makes.

Also, the best fish tacos are in San Diego.

Haha, yes, of course. They tend more toward creative specialties. They have a lot of bacon wrapped dogs, a lot of chili dogs, they do a lot of sausages, hot dog burritos...

The place was on Man vs Food as Parker's Hot Dogs for their knucklehead challenge, which has still today only been completed successfully once. The name of the joint has changes, because another Parker's has kind of profited unfairly off of t
This place's celebrity. It's now called Knucklehead Hot Dog Diner.

Are they the same California burritos (carne asada, fries, sour cream and/or guac and/or pico de gallo)?

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?)

We don't have much in my area.

Well, we do have some great burgers. Fugler's has a pretty famous burger that Denzel Washington ate.

We have another sort of small restaurant that makes some great gourmet burgers. One has blackberries in it.
