The 25 Foods that Define North Carolina

pretty accurate list....

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2010/0 ... el-25.html

check out the pork chop sandwich at the Snappy Lunch in Andy Griffiths hometown.
He mentioned it in the show. it's a big giant fried pork chop in a little bun.

Re: The 25 Foods that Define North Carolina

Well think a person do good to only eat straight mater sandwiches if they was too broke to afford a slice of dead critter parts of some sort to go with. If they is forced into it tater chips pickles and mayo should taste purty good on there with the maters and onyawns.

You probably pick your tomatoes off the topsy turvy while wearing a TuTu! I can deal with your lifestyle, but PLANT your tomato plants like a man, not like a Finney!

Re: The 25 Foods that Define North Carolina

Captain Morgan, I think I need a diet after reading the list. Probably a good thing Ohio doesn't have all these great places

Re: The 25 Foods that Define North Carolina

Tell ya a cute little waitress in Arkieville talked me into that slaw on a chili dawg deal once upon a time. Would flat gag a gut wagon maggot. Chili dawgs and reubens brats etc. is why the Lord give us sour kraut of course. Cole slaw should be reserved for pushed pork or as a side dish for good bbq or fried foods. Simple huh?

Sauerkraut on a chili dog? No thanks. I like my hot dogs only 3 ways:
1. Mustard and cole slaw
2. Mustard and sauerkraut
3. Mustard, chili, and onions


As for the list, "What, no liver mush??"

Re: The 25 Foods that Define North Carolina

Larry,
You need to try a natural casing dog (steamed, and a bun steamed above) ... with just a TBS of butter smothered over it.

THAT's heaven.

Re: The 25 Foods that Define North Carolina

Well I dont know why anybody would want a steamed dawg. Best is grilled closely followed by fried. Speaking the weenie part here of course. Now that bees in an ideal world of course. I have ate a million steamed dawgs..I even had a steamer moochine one time. They was good but not the cat's meow so to speak. Chili dawgs loaded up with kraut onyawns cheese and mustard is known as mess dawgs for them familiar with Der Weinersnitzel. I can do all but number 1.

I'd have to say liver mush is a tier above potted meat, Vienna sausages, and Banner sausage, in terms of the proportion of its ingredients that you really don't want to know are in there.

I mean that the majority of the ingredients are simply pork liver, corn meal, and spices. I think there is very little of the "unmentionables" as compared to those other products (or Spam, for that matter). And it actually looks edible, unlike head cheese for example.

Re: The 25 Foods that Define North Carolina

Price's Chicken Coop, thanks for the memory. Been 27 yrs since I lived in Charlotte and ate from da coop. Fried chicken I'm sure is still awesome. Fried perch was pretty dang tasty too.
Could only order to go, no dining on premises. Used to grab a dinner and head to Freedom Park to chow down.
