Non-Americans point out different types of food from American cuisine including regional and holiday food that they want to try.
The cultural diversity in the US allows people from different ethnicities to live together sharing their customs and values. Some of the notable cultural blends can be seen in the recipes of American cuisine. The food in America is basically inspired by various parts of the world including Europe, Asia and Latin America. However, the country has managed to leave its mark on the world's culinary scene as one of the most vibrant and much-loved cuisines.
People from around the world are fascinated by this diverse cuisine so when a Reddit user, u/Material_Zombie, posted asking the non-American community members about "An American food they really want to try," oodles of contrastive responses poured in.
If your answer isn't smoked brisket, your answer is wrong. Americans know BBQ better than anyone.
And I'll even admit that as a Canadian. - u/KitchenCanadian
I'd love to try a classic Salisbury Steak with mushroom/onion gravy (brown sauce) and mashed potatoes. -u/Acidinmyfridge
Green bean casserole. As a Canadian, we eat a lot of the same foods, but green bean casserole is not popular here. -u/No-Definition-1986
There’s a lot I wanna try, but if I ever go to NY, I’m stuffing myself with fried chicken from all stores in Harlen if I can - u/LegatusMalpais
As a Filipino, Black American soul food. Idk, it all looks good, especially the collard greens and the country fried steak. - u/Cat_of_the_woods
I hate to sound like an ignorant foreigner but a made from scratch Mac & Cheese with at least 3 different cheeses plus a crispy breadcrumb crust on top is one of my favorite American dishes. - u/BrandyBStamp
Probably the food that they eat on thanksgiving I never tried turkey before or pumpkin pie. -u/latinagirl02
Crab Louie. Dunginess crab picked over a fresh salad with thousand island dressing and fresh sourdough bread.
It would be my last meal requested if ever on death row. Not the frozen stuff- it’s flavorless- have to have FRESH crab. OMG- so good. - u/tennisgoddess1
Corn bread. Out of all the foods, I'm curious to try that out. - u/ZIntrovertCF
I've always wanted to get my hands on some of the Carolina Gold rice species.
I'm a rice lover from the Caribbean who's lived in Asia, so I've tasted a lot of varieties.
So yah... Some indigenous rice please. - u/MiniKash
Funnel cake. It looks amazing. Is it amazing?! - u/BrashPop
Canadian here.... We have alot of similar food options, but I've always wanted to try a genuine New York slice. - u/beattybandit
Chilli. I could probably make some but never got around to it. - u/Vulkir
Not much in terms of food other than a philly cheesesteak and BBQ. Would love to do a tour of American craft breweries though. -u/The5kyKing
Apple Pie made by white haired grandma. - u/MegaJoltik
Southern food. Cornbread, gumbo, fried chicken, grits, Mac n cheese, collard greens, pumpkin pie, southern bbq, crawfish boil, brisket. Just - all of it. Southern soul food looks fire. - u/theimperfectionista
I want to try your gigantic burgers that are just drowned in cheese sauce. - u/alexacutiegirl
True authentic Texas BBQ.
Here in Australia there are some "American bbq" places, but they look nowhere near as impressive as what the US shows. Worse even, many places put sauce on things like briskets and beef ribs.
Also, beef ribs here are small, I want those massive ribs with the length of am adult forearm. - u/UltraZulwarn
I always wanted some but i don't know what graham crackers are and not sure European chocolate would do it justice. I just watched The Menu and the weird chef disparaged it so now I want it more. - u/RandomUser5781
Literally half of the chains, chick fil a, Popeye's, waffle House, hooters, little Caesar, Wendy's, jack in a box, cheesecake factory, olive garden. - u/BaronMerc
Biscuits with gravy. Looking at the photos online, I think I would like it. u/myfyp2
I'm a veggie but those hot dogs you see being sold on new York streets.... So iconic lol. - u/robjapan
Chicago deep dish pizza. - u/chronolatch
Traditional American delicacy. Pop-tarts. - u/PreludeWithoutAFugue
I’m surprised no one has mentioned Tex-mex or California style Mexican food. I’ve traveled to at least two dozen countries, and I’ve been to Mexico a half dozen times. Mexican-American and Tex-Mex is nearly impossible to find in other parts of the world. California style burritos are a thing of beauty. - u/Galaaska
