Does America have a national dish?

What is “poutine” and “poblamos puebla mole”?

Where in North America are “fried grasshoppers” a local specialty?

Explore this section on North America, to learn the answers to those questions. Discover the regional food and drink, and the national dishes, of the 3 countries that make up North America – Canada, America, and Mexico.

Cuisine in the United States is as diverse as the country itself, and while it may be difficult to pinpoint one particular national dish, it is fair to say that barbecue and all things grilled or smoked are definitely at the top of the list, along of course, with the ubiquitous hamburger. Americans like to drink their beer and celebrate summer with burgers on the barbecue, but fast food and street food are also making their mark on the country and taking their place as a new kind of regional dish.

Known as mole, this thick sauce is nothing like the traditional Mexican salsa as it is poured over turkey (traditional), chicken or beef to intensify the flavors. Mole is a very labor intensive dish and can contain over 30 ingredients such as chiles, garlic, onion, and nuts. Because of the amount of work required to make a good mole, including grinding up seeds, nuts, and chiles by hand, makes it hard to find, and almost unknown, outside of Mexico. Oaxaca has the reputation as Mexico’s best state for mole, and is called the “land of seven moles”, the most famous is mole negro, which uses pumpkin seeds, six kinds of chile, chile seeds, almonds, raisins, tomato, garlic, onions, plantains, chocolate, and a variety of spices and other ingredients.
