    Re: Food

    In Argentina, a regional dish would be "empanadas", though every tourist that visits the country wants to try the delicious "asados" (that's like a bbq).

    Re: Food

    In China, foods are quite different among different areas. Here in southeast part, especially in Guangzhou, the most famous cuisine must be "dim sum" (点心),small portions of a variety of foods. Many of their translation is beyond my knowledge. So I list some popular dim sum below in cantonese.
    牛肉烧卖,干蒸,虾饺,凤爪,叉烧包,生肉包,蛋挞,春卷,白粥油炸鬼,艇仔粥,及第粥,肠粉,马蹄糕,萝卜糕,芋头糕... and much more.

    Re: Food

    Regional Dishes from the US:

    Clam Chowder (New England) - type of thick clam stew
    Maryland Crab Cakes (Maryland) - fried cakes with crab meat
    Succotash (East coast) - type of bean/corn mash with other ingredients
    Collard Greens (South) - a green, leafy vegetable reduced with pork, vinegar and other ingredients
    Gumbo (Louisiana) - A stew made with okra and a type of meat (chicken, shrimp, etc.)
    Michigan (Upstate New York) - a hot dog with a semi-spicy meat sauce (not chili), normally served with vinegar and chopped onions.
    Chili (Southwest, Texas, Midwest) - a spicy bean and meat stew with onions, oregano, cumin, and other spices (not to be confused with chili pepper, though they are incorporated)
    Barbecue/BBQ (Southeast, South, Texas, Midwest) - a style of preparing meats such as chicken, beef, or pork with a specific sauce over an open flame. Also, the name for the sauce, which, depending on region, ranges in its ingredients, producing something sweet, tangy or savory.
    Chimichanga (Arizona, New Mexico) - a fried burrito with meat, beans and/or cheese.

    Keep in mind that immigrant palats have greatly changed the diet of the US, so it's difficult to draw the line between "American" and imported foods. The list I gave above does not include one type of food that hasn't had some influence from another culture (succotash is a native dish, gumbo has West African influence, etc.). Obviously pizza (Italian), sausages - such as hot dogs (Northern European) and tacos (Mexican) are all from different cultures originally, but they've had a lot of time to become "Americanized" and therefore may be included on this list. I've had pizza in Naples, it's nothing like Chicago- or New York-style. And tacos in Sonora are much different than their north-of-the-border cousins.


    Some slang terms for to eat:

    "to grub" - to satisfy an urge to eat
    "to chow" - to eat hardily
    "to scarf down" - to eat quickly
    "to woof up" - to eat quickly
    "to pig out" - implies gluttonous eating
    "to snack" - to have something between meals
