American Cuisine

Ha ha ha ha, the United States should also have local characteristics snacks? One state, one taste.

A qualified foodie should not be confined to the obsession with their favorite food, unable to extricate themselves; Instead, put weight loss behind you with the determination to eat everywhere.

Come across the ocean to Great America, you may complain about how all the crude fried chicken, hamburgers, sandwiches, once barbecued skewers, hot pot, crayfish gone forever, dreams shattered, chrysanthemums broken, all over the ground.


Breakfast is just like at home. Cereal cereal with milk, high-calorie Pancake pancakes or Waffle wafers, fried and boiled eggs of any kind, Omelette if you want something different with juice and coffee, and high-calorie Sausage and Bacon.


Lunch will be easy. Office workers usually like to bring their own sandwiches, or go to a fast food restaurant to buy a burger, salad, yogurt, and a drink. To say it directly is to save time, and to avoid saying it in a roundabout way is to save money.


Dinner varies from state to state: pasta, salad, steak, fried chicken breast or salmon, fried chicken with mashed potatoes… All kinds of things, just in case you think.

Living here, why not learn about the history of American food culture? In this multi-ethnic country, American food is a living melting pot.

History of American food culture

The 16th century and before

Back before the sixteenth century, Indians were the principal inhabitants of the United States. At this stage, they laid the foundation for the staple food of the United States – corn. In the era of food and clothing, the United States had not yet formed a complete food system and food system. By the 16th century, when the Spanish from Mexico came to America, the corn was too simple, and that’s how Taco was born, or what we know as Taco.

The 17th century and beyond

In the 17th and 18th centuries, European immigrants flooded into the United States, and with them laid the foundation of traditional American cuisine – English cuisine. Later, African immigrants introduced novel ingredients and condiments to American dinner tables. In the second half of the 19th century, Chinese and Italian immigrants arrived in the United States, and all kinds of new American-style Chinese food emerged: fried noodles, tangerine chicken, hot and sour soup… Unfortunately, Chinese food is still not the most popular food in the United States, because Americans eat it, after all, they don’t cook it at home. Americanized Italian food dominates American restaurant culture and is popular. After the 20th century, immigrants from all over the world brought in cuisines from their countries: the French way of food, Danish pastries, Indian curries… That’s the genius of the Melting pot, the ability to embrace everything.

So what is the favorite food in every state?

A few great Americans, food never lies.

American states love their favorite foods

CN Traveler, a travel magazine from American media company CondeNast, compiled a list of local favorites from 52 U.S. states (including Puerto Rico and Washington D.C.). No Michelin restaurant delicacy, no fancy decoration, in the stomach can actually eat full. Is it delicious? It is still up to you to taste the guest. (Alphabetical order A-Z)

9.Florida — Key Lime Pie

Originated from the Key West sect in the far south of the United States, it’s not just any school. Meringue covered with freshly squeezed lime, American desserts don’t have to be calorie-dense and cloying, okay?

10.Georgia -Peach Cobbler

Those who love dessert can’t miss yellow peach pie. It’s a bit like pie, but without the crust underneath, the top layer is not as gorgeous as pie. The crispy baked skin is the fruit flowing with sweet juice underneath, and the crispy skin with the soft filling is another flavor compared to pie.

It looks like a very different sandwich, Turkey, bacon, and cheese bechamel. It’s more of a delicate dish.

18.Lousiana -Po ‘Boy

Commonly known as the “poor boy sandwich”, but not very handsome. Some were stuffed with roast beef, others with fried shrimp.

26. Huckleberry Pie, Montana

Montana loves cranberries, so this translates to cranberry plum pie, which is commonly known as the best dessert after dinner. Whether you eat it straight, or dip it in whipped cream, you’ll love it. When I went to Montana, I learned that cranberry can be used not only in pies, but also in all kinds of cranberry flavored foods and desserts.

27. Runza, Nebraska

This simple rectangular sandwich is made of beef, cabbage, onion and flavored bread. I hear it’s like stinky tofu, it doesn’t smell very good, so take a bite and it will change your opinion of the sandwich 100%.
