There is special food in every country as traditional food
Iranian's Traditional food is Kabab , it will make by meat and onion
we comminute them and then will mix them with some condiment and use some spur (sharp spike used in cooking)for cooking it on hearth.

In Kelantan, there are lots of food.
Traditional food here is known as AKOK among the locals.
The way ro make it is a bit like BAULU but the look and taste are totally different.
It is made by egg + flour + some other flavours.
Eat it when its cold is the best!!

I've probably posted this before, but Quebec has poutine (fries, cheese curds and gravy), pigs' feet, oreilles de crisse (fried bacon fat), tire (boiled-down maple syrup served on snow), pouding chômeur (literally "unemployment pudding" - dough baked in sugar sauce), and pizza all dress' (sauce, cheese, mushrooms, and green peppers - I tried ordering it elsewhere and ended up with the most expensive pizza ever).

In Northern Ireland - we have our traditional Ulster Fry - sausage bacon egg mushrooms tomatoes/beans (depends on the cook!) potatoe bread and soda bread and black pudding (blood and grisel - love it!) or theres champ - potatoes butter and spring onions or scallions.

I think really the traditional food is the potatoe here we couldnt live without it - as the Great Irish Potatoe Famine proved to some extend l suppose!

Hmmm, hard to say if there are any real traditional foods here in the US. We're such a melting pot of different cultures that each group of immigrants has their own traditions, though most of the early immigrants were from Northern Europe, so they brought all the "missing" Irish potatos with them.

The Northeast is famous for lobster, the South is famous for fried chicken, Texas for BBQ'd anything, the Northwest for fish, and California for anything trendy (can't help it...I lived there and know the insanity). The Midwest is famous for beer and cheese, and vitually anything deep fried in oil.....you can't be too healthy.

The earliest inhabitants here ate corn...another nice starch. And fish...the occassional buffalo...squirrels....fruits, root vegetables, the odd French fur trapper......

My personal tradition is dolma (grape leaves stuffed with meat and rice) smothered in garlic yogurt.

Odd culinary country this is.....

I'm going a bit off topic here, but I once Stage Managed a play (Fen by Caryl Churchill) about the fens in England. They brought in a LOT of dirt to be the "stage" and every night we had to "plant" potatoes and rocks in rows for the actors to "pick" during the show. Craziness

Hm the dutch kitchen also has some strange things..

frikandellen, fried garbage meat... i think only the dutch are willing to eat it as long as you don't know what's in it, it's okay..

or hutspot which is mash potato with carrots and than we have other stamppotten (mashed food) in the combinations potato with beans, with other green veggies.

See here the reason why there aren't many restaurants serving the dutch kitchen

ow now i'm forgetting the famous lunch, bread with cheese ;)

Well, I don't know if it's a traditional food, but something that seems very American to me is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich:)
