And ice cream.... we have the best here, and Bostonians eat it all year. You see people walking around town during blizzard trying to eat ice cream in mittens.

And I should add that a few of the foods Boston is famous for are not so big around here. It's not as if we walk around eating Boston cream pies and baked beans all day.

That's the biggest thing I miss not living on the East Coast anymore - the fresh seafood - Ah, heaven!
Of course, we're big on seafood around here... especially lobster and (ugh) cod.
Another thing I miss is not being able to drop into a Dunkin Donuts and getting an iced coffee - I have to make my own! The people here in the office look at me like I'm crazy when I'm drinking that. Starbucks doesn't come close in the iced coffee category, IMO.

dragonlady7 asked where is here earlier. I'm from Delaware (which is about a 40 minutes drive south of Philadelphia, or halfway between New York City and Washington, DC). There are more than a couple great crab shacks around where you could eat crabs encrusted in old bay seasoning, and drink beers until you're full.
I'm pretty fond of Dunkin Donuts coffee myself. And, it's free trade coffee, too.

So I have a lot of exploring to do in the US someday. My boyfriend recently got a hybrid gas-electric car, so road trips are extremely cost-effective (NYC to Buffalo on one 10-gallon tank of gas is Not Bad. And the Prius is a really comfortable and easy ride. Especially on back roads at 65 mph instead of 80 on the boring Thruway). So I mean to explore places like Delaware and Maine and perhaps farther, but... I can't ever get any time off of work. Ever. So the regional delights will have to wait a while... But when I get a chance, I will sample the crab cakes and lobster and cod and whatever else the East Coast can throw at me. Mmmmm..... and beer. Yay!
I've been to Philadelphia only once, and I was there for a total of 10 minutes-- got a ride in the back of someone's car from buffalo to Philly, and then hopped a train to NYC. So, I got a glimpse of the skyline... What a tease.
Oh, my boyfriend read this thread and wants it known that I am an ignorant tourist who described beef on weck pretty well but otherwise knows not of what she speaks. "Fish fries are available every Friday of the year [including many days that are not actually Friday], from every self-respecting 'Bar & Grill' [including many which are not respectable at all].". Just, nobody gets one except during Lent because, well, it's tradition. So Good Friday you bid the fish fry farewell simply out of tradition, not out of necessity.
I am also a godless heathen because I forgot to mention that Wegman's is the source of all that's good and holy-- the Rochester-based grocery store chain is The Best Grocery Store Ever, carries fabulously good food, including Dibella's subs (best in the world), and my boyfriend and i have been plotting for some months about how we could somehow destroy our local Food Emporium (Motto: We carry less stuff than the identical A&P, and will charge you more for it) and convince Wegman's to step in and replace it.
Hmm... I'm hungry again.
