About This Quiz

Everyone knows cuisine on a grand scale - Mexican, Italian, Chinese, French.  Those are all delicious and well worth eating at every chance you get.  But sometimes the best foods are a little less well known.  Secret, tasty items that pop up in a certain town or region because an inspired chef has some great ingredients and does something brilliant.  

Regional foods are some of the best things you can discover as you travel across the country. They're also the things you'll miss most when you leave home and realize no one on the other side of the country has ever heard of loco moco or hot brown.  In fact, they'll probably make fun of you for even asking for hot brown.  How do they not know how delicious hot brown is?
