Put in San Diego and got carne asada fries and California burrito.

Can confirm those are THE local specialties so checks out. Don’t recognize the cocktail suggested though.

Check for Costa Rica and mention a fruit I have never hear of neither my mom and is a biologist specialized in plants

Tried NZ and it got them all. Not sure about the best places it recommended, but it got the local cuisines spot on.

Listing falafel as Israeli and hummus as Lebanese is just asking for all our ear in the Middle East. Every country says they made it up.

According to my Iraqi relatives, Iraq made them up but my Jordanian relatives said they made it up lol.

the chilean entries are largely reasonable - one includes a favourite restaurant of mine. like other people are saying the emphasis is on the capital, but for a web site that covers the whole world i guess that's a fair compromise.

Australia No. 1: Pavlova

New Zealand No. 1: Pavlova

I guess they're not interested in starting a war

I put in Anchorage Alaska and other than cheeseburger etc that every US city has listed for them. they offered muktuk, Akutaq, and jellied moose nose. Ok yes those exist here however they are not something most people have eaten or will ever eat outside of villages/natives.

They are....unique foods. You will actually be hard pressed to find any to get. No one just sells that stuff. Especially muktuk, anything deal with whale meat and the like is pretty restricted. So unless you go up to some of the coastal bush villages and make friends you won't ever see it.

The only thing Alaska really has going for it that's "Alaskan" someone can just go but is smoked salmon. Wild game like moose and reindeer is also restricted you can't sell it. You can some farm raised reindeer though, but farm raised in not the same in the slightest.

How could you list lunumiris and kottu but not include hoppers for Sri Lankan dishes 😭


_chrom_ t1_j45gpg9 wrote

Huh. Klobasnek (what most people think of kolaches) is an American creation.


laxativefx t1_j45ijxz wrote

There is a fair bit of pavlova related tension though.

If anything was to cause a war between NZ and Australia it would be these three things:

  1. under arm bowling
  2. pavlova
  3. Russell Crowe

Common brushtail possum

>The common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula, from the Greek for "furry tailed" and the Latin for "little fox", previously in the genus Phalangista) is a nocturnal, semiarboreal marsupial of the family Phalangeridae, native to Australia and naturalised in New Zealand, and the second-largest of the possums. Like most possums, the common brushtail possum is nocturnal. It is mainly a folivore, but has been known to eat small mammals such as rats. In most Australian habitats, eucalyptus leaves are a significant part of the diet, but rarely the sole item eaten.


>Opossums () are members of the marsupial order Didelphimorphia () endemic to the Americas. The largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere, it comprises 93 species in 18 genera. Opossums originated in South America and entered North America in the Great American Interchange following the connection of North and South America. The Virginia opossum is the only species found in the United States and Canada.

Cool but very light on content. Stockholm apperently only have two restaurants and only eat two things

This is not representative of many countries. For example their southeast Asian guide has many misappropriation errors for the origins of the dishes and the histories behind the cuisine. It would serve as a very poor resource for anyone trying to educate themselves on the subject.


MurderDoneRight t1_j45ondo wrote

Neat. I learned we have an endangered type of goat in my region. Other than that, there's a local cheese that I love (Västerbottensost) and one local dish called Calskrove, which is a hamburger with fries baked into a calzone... I have yet to try that because I have some decency still in me.


GrimTuck t1_j45rlci wrote

Fish and Chips for the UK always annoys me as it's never cooked at home and therefore shouldn't be considered our national dish. I wish that our roast dinner was more prominent in this regard as it's something most families eat every Sunday togetger. Fish and Chips is something we only get when we're being lazy and is beaten in popularity by Indian food as a take-away.

Glad the Seattle Dog is somewhat accurately described.

I investigating and the fruit white sapote (matasano in Spanish) actually is almost not exist in Costa Rica. Because a president prohibited in the past. It is a complete different family from the zapote, it is more close to the oranges.

I've been here but how to download some of their amazing Infographics?


Thetri t1_j46i81s wrote

Yeah I saw this as well. I think it has to do with Amsterdam being more tourist-oriented, and therefore having restaurants that promote themselves as making Dutch food.

Not one mention of curry when talking about the UK, but random dishes I've never even heard of. Doesn't fill me with confidence!

There's a part of Canada where they grow root vegetables and there's a part of Canada where they grow wheat. And the difference between the two in distance would be like Paris to Romania.

So anyway the only recipes for my area are ginger beef and a selection of cocktails.


Phofish t1_j46zhb8 wrote

The food on the list called kokoretsi is a Turkish dish. His real name is Kokoreç. It is a kind of dish made from the small intestine of a sheep, wrapped in a shish and fried over a ember. It is absurd to market the dishes spread from the Ottoman Empire as Greek dishes. The site called Tasteatlas scores oils in country cuisines to give more points to many countries. Kebab-style dishes come from the east of Turkey, not from the west. It has no ties to Greece but spread to many countries by the Ottoman Empire. I can't take a site that doesn't know this seriously.
