    Must be the extra "special salty taste".

      Well, I am a Italian American from New York City! So, NY is known for all kinds of food. However, living in the Tampa By area, I would say "Cuban sandwiches".

          Well lets see what does St. Louis have? Toasted Raviolis, these could be the best mistake ever in the food world. If you don't know what they are, let me know and I'll tell ya. Ted Drew's Frozen Custard, its a must stop after every Cards game. Oh and the St. Louis Style Pizza, the crust is about as thick as a cracker and add a very light sauce and Provel cheese and any toppings you like and you are ready to rock and roll.

              The "Insert Your City Here" Bread Co is all over the place. Its owned by St. Louis based Panara Breads. Yes it is very very very trendy but God bless the person that makes that Chicken Salad.

              Imo's i'm not a big fan of. Now Cecil Whittikers is the place to go for the STL Style pizza.

              And hell don't be talking down about SPAM. That is one of my guilty pleasures. Fry up a can. Scramble a dozen eggs and you got yourself a meal fit for a king.

                Panera Bread is pretentious, but so is Starbucks. I don't mind either, and like Panera Bread's various ... bread items.

                I was informed by someone who was ministering in St. Louis that Panera Bread is the St. Louis Bread Company, but never knew that they had other "City Name" Bread Companies.

                  JSAM you're a guy after my own heart. SPAM is GI food of the gods. About the strangest use I've seen for spam is a youtube video of a contractor dipping his .223 rounds in the fatty brine. I don't think thats a good idea personally, even if it had an actual purpose other than ticking off muslim viewers, which I don't care for to begin with.

                    Israelis use pork as a method of protecting personnel and facilities from Muslim and radical Israeli terrorist attacks. Rabbis have specifically authorized certain IDF and security forces personnel to handle pork for the purposes of protection.

                    Hang up sealed containers of pork blood or meat at entrance points, possible blast points, etc.

                    The terrorist may think twice about having his remains defiled by pig product after his detonation mixes the two.

                    They also intern pig by-product with Muslim terrorist graves, which achieves a deterrence and psychological victory.

                    No clue if it works.

                      Vacaville, CA back in the early 1900s was the worlds largest producer of onions. Until about five years ago they had the Onion Festival in August and made onion rings the size of dinner plates, onion ice cream, and various other dishes.

                              Well down here in Australia. I would have to say Kanagroo. Yum! It is a nice meat although a bit gamey in taste. Best served Medium rare other wise it gets tuff.

                              Also my home town of Aldgate.
