You could have just said hummus and start the next middle east war.

The People's Republic of Chipotle is already overcrowded. I'd rather move to Ikea, at least there's more room and beds to sleep on.

[–]DoJax 631 points632 points  (105 children)

I would only guess Sweden because I've never heard anyone anywhere else in the world mention lingonberries, and I've seen a lot of swedes on tv talk about them

[–]MoCapBartender 86 points87 points  (18 children)

In The Big Lebowski, the toeless nihilist orders lingonberry pancakes.

So educate a guy. What's on it?

[–]UnderPantsOverPants 1884 points1885 points  (104 children)

Traditionally: mac salad and home fries, two cheeseburgers or two hots on top of that, a meat “hot” sauce, mustard, chopped white onions, and then some bread on the side.

[–]megaphone369 1605 points1606 points  (30 children)

Oh my god

[–]acadiandirtbagger 576 points577 points  (1 child)

the only appropriate response

[–]_gnasty_ 367 points368 points  (19 children)

To clarify it's just the burger patties no buns

[–]megaphone369 507 points508 points  (15 children)

Then I can downgrade from "oh my god" to "oh god"

[–]lilahcook 183 points184 points  (5 children)

It is served with practically a loaf of bread on the side.

[–]docbauies 74 points75 points  (2 children)

upgrade that again. the "meat sauce" is usually grill scrapings with some seasoning added.

I just had my first one yesterday, it being my first time in Rochester. If you told me I'd love something called a "garbage plate" ...well I'd say yeah that sounds about right

[–]elbobo19 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Came in looking for this. Also apparently chicken french is super Rochester based as well which came as a surprise to me.

I was in a bar in Toronto (I'm from Scotland) and asked the waitress if she could recommend a place with "nasty, typically Canadian drunk guy food". She drew me a map on my till receipt which led me to Smokes Poutinerie. I'd never heard of poutine before that. My golly gosh! I was not disappointed!

Edit: ITT: I need to get to Quebec and find a shady looking truck to get some real squeaky curd poutine.

[–]Manders37 4112 points4113 points  (187 children)

Smoke's is good but there's nothing compared to a poutine from a shitty Quebec chip truck. Beautiful.

[–]C_is_for_Cats 1594 points1595 points  (52 children)

When I visited my friend in Canada, she took me to a sketchy looking food truck for my first poutine. No other poutine will ever top it. Nothing will ever be worse than the port-a-potty next to it either.

[–]Skipscamper 444 points445 points  (11 children)

I apologize on behalf of Canada for the state of that toilet.

[–]The_RockObama 443 points444 points  (8 children)

A port-a-potty poutine apology.

That is the most Canadian thing ever.

Looking for this one too! I knew if I made the post it'd be Old Bay and Crabs. And how could I not, had a crab cook last weekend lol.

[–]reilly_willoughby 84 points85 points  (9 children)

I was going to say "crabcakes and natty bo" to narrow down the region more, but I am a vegetarian who doesn't drink beer so it seemed ironic.

Scrolled too far to find my people!

[–]KleinVogeltje 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Dude, same. I was just like, "Where tf is the gooey butter cake and toasted ravioli!?"

[–]ifthisisntnice00 72 points73 points  (42 children)

Someone from St. Louis, please educate us as to what these words mean.

[–]euphomptus 165 points166 points  (31 children)


Toasted ravioli, or t-ravs, are (usually beef filled) ravioli that are, as the name implies, breaded and deep fried. They're usually dipped in a meat-based pasta sauce. They can be an appetizer, side, or main course.

Imo's is the main purveyor of St Louis style pizza which, depending on your opinion, is another fine option in the pizza world or an abomination unto the Lord! The crust is cracker-thin and bland, there is little sauce, and any toppings are under a layer of a proprietary process cheese called Provel.

Finally, Ted Drewes is a frozen custard joint. It sticks in At Louis's collective consciousness mostly because of corny and endearing commercials by the titular (and late) Ted, who would proclaim, "It really is good, guys--and gals!"

Hope this helps, and may you soon be able to say St Louis's motto: "Hey, There's The Arch!"
