The original Man vs. Food series, with Adam Richman, did an episode here that was a bit misleading. He went to a restaurant here I'd never heard of (and which has since closed; think they closed around a year after the episode aired) and had something called a `Pig Burger', which they talked about as a local delicacy that was famous. It was basically a burger made out of ground pork with a slice of raw onion, on white bread. I'd never heard of it before, and have never had one. The food from here that actually is famous? Petro's, which is basically a Frito pie in a bowl. It debuted here at the 1982 World's Fair, and I had one for lunch last week.

Incidentally, I like shrimp, and I like grits, but I've never in my life had shrimp and grits, which is a southern thing. I only eat grits for breakfast, on occasion.

In the Black Country we have Faggots,pork and offal with
seasoning wrapped in pig's intestine. They're actually very
nice. The Facebook algorithim often bans members of local
history groups for using the word. We also have Pig's/Black
Pudding which is pig's blood and rusk with spices and
seasoning. That's very nice too. Was once at a buffet
breakfast at a Star Trek con in Leicester and Eric Menyuk
(The Traveller) was sitting on the next table. He had
picked up some Black Pudding and asked me what it was. When
i told him, he replied "Oh dear, i'm Jewish"
