    I miss all the fresh fruit from living in California. In high school when we'd go on off campus runs for soccer, we'd run past the orchards and pick the fruit that hung over the fence. Nothing like fresh oranges when you're hot and tired!

    Here in DC? I dunno. I can't stand anything crab related, so Maryland stuff is out. We got good peaches when we drove out west in Virginia in August.

    They have awesome food! I am not sure of the ice cream you are talking about, though.

    ETA: Checked out their website. Need to make a day trip. ;)

    I love some real maple syrup on pancakes or french toast. Just the best!

    Poutine is also delish!

    I miss the pierogies and cheesesteaks and an Italian grinder from Candida's pizzeria near Philly lol

    Now that I'm in Cali, I love the fresh produce and I've always loved Mexican food so that's the best :)

    I really want to try this poutine that you all speak of.

    As far as local to me... ummm.... fried cheese curds? They are delicious, wherever they originated. :p

    As soon as I saw this thread I went PIEROGIES!!! I can (and do, occasionally,) make them from scratch, but nothing beats pierogies made by old women in a church! lol
    Also Vince's Cheesesteaks...uh, I would probably murder someone for one.

    Burger Jones has poutine!! It's expensive, but I would totally go there sometime for lunch if you wanted! They also have bison burgers, and a White Trash Burger...which has cheese curds on it. :lol-sign: That place is awesome...and you can bring your dogs.

    OOohhhh well, I'm a Chicagoan but I don't really like deepdish pizza. :eek: However, a Portillo's hot dog, Chicago style? Yes please. Italian Beef also.

    Also, a midwest treat... Walleye, pan fried, if you would. Mmm it's just soooo flakey and tender. Also, some really good sweet corn, with butter and salt... yeah.

    Who started this thread?! :lol-sign:

    omg you are blowing my mind with everything you have said. :rofl1: I've been there once but clearly did not look at the menu well enough!! I want the poutine (why does that sound so dirty?). That white trash burger sounds amazing and honestly I don't even like burgers but I want it!
    When I have money, this is so happening!

    Now I want to drive down to Minneapolis.

    Ok, I've read through this thread and now I'm really, REALLY hungry. You should put a "Diet Buster" warning in the subject line.

    Poutine, hands down favourite. Ironically enough on my way to work I go by a New York Fries that makes a decent plate of it. Lucky me, I'm not dieting. Hubby and I are trying to eat more healthy, but he's at work and I've caught him snagging a bag of chips for lunch, so he owes me a one-off.

    There's an ice-cream place here that's been around for eons. Makes the very best soft serve ice cream cones. And Frostys. And Sundaes.

    Little restaurant downtown serves amazing hamburgers but you HAVE to (in my opinion) order one of their old fashioned milkshakes to wash it down.

    Might just have to take the long way to work today, LOL.
