Best traditional USA dishes: Top 10 must-try American foods

 "American as apple pie" for a reason: this sweet treat is a national institution. Forget anybody who will try to tell you pecan or key lime is better, because they are lying.

1.Apple Pie

Every single American will have a different idea about where to find the best hamburger in the country, ranging from fast food on the West Coast to fine dining in New York.

2.The Hamburger

It is basically illegal to visit Boston without trying New England clam chowder. The fragrant soup is sold everywhere, and it looks hideous, being white and lumpy.

3.Clam Chowder

Trying to narrow New York down to a single representative cuisine is a fool's errand. A Nathan's hot dog? Pastrami from Katz's? A bad cup of diner coffee?

4.Bagel and Lox

Pizza in Chicago looks and tastes different. The dish is deep, as the name suggests, meaning the crust rises high and allows for an artery-choking volume of cheese and tomato sauce.

5.Deep-Dish Pizza

A biscuit in America means, essentially,a flaky scone often made with lard and buttermilk. In places such as Montana, where people burn energy working on horse ranches

6.Drop Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Australians might like to stoke up a barbie on the weekend, but Texans live and die by the practice. Mesquite smoked meats and tenderising rubs are common obsessions.

7.Texas Barbecue

Southern food seems to exist in its own universe, and an entire list could be written just focusing on things like chicken and waffles (yes, you read that correctly).

8.Hominy Grits

Los Angeles is a city with a taqueria on every street corner, basically. With so many Spanish-speakers it's possible to find anything from greasy nachos on Venice Beach

9.Tacos

So "thanksgiving" isn't technically a food, but it's such a legendary date on the American culinary calendar (the fourth Thursday of each November), that it needs to be acknowledged.
