The food must be named after the location. They don't actually have to be made locally, though.

What's in your area?

Philly Cheese Steak (prepares for barrage of comments that ignore what 47 other states call it)

I assume the other 3 are PA, NJ & DE.

47 other states and the rest of the world call it a Philly Cheesesteak.

The other 3 call it a cheesesteak. We don't add 'Philly' to it.

Similar is a Soft Philly Pretzel. We'll just call it a pretzel.  If there's any doubt as to options, a soft pretzel.  But not a Soft Philly Pretzel.

It's called a Philly Cheesesteak in most other places to distinguish it from a normal steak and cheese sub.  Philly Cheesesteaks are made with Velvetta.  Normal steak and cheese subs are made with real cheese.

It's called a Philly Cheesesteak in most other places to distinguish it from a normal steak and cheese sub.  Philly Cheesesteaks are made with Velvetta.  Normal steak and cheese subs are made with real cheese. 

That's not the difference.  A cheesesteak in Philly is often made with American or Provolone.  Very few places actually use melted cheese such as Velveeta.  Pats and Genos do, so that's the image people often get as those places are often used on TV to showcase Philly's Cheesesteaks. But you could easily walk up and get other cheeses as well. 

Same thing with fried onions, peppers and mushrooms.  They're all toppings on a cheesesteak which you can get at most places that offer cheesesteaks. 

There's also cheesesteak hoagies, with lettuce and tomato. 

The name just depends on the location you're at or the lingo you're used to.

Out of the country, but "Berliner" is also known as a jelly donut.

Example: "Ich bin ein Berliner." *crowd laughs at JFK*

Seattle dog and Seattle (sushi) roll, both with cream cheese

But in actual food that is distinctly ours: teriyaki. A small clamshell with rice, chicken, sauce, and iceberg lettuce salad with a side of buttermilk ranch in a tiny cup. Usually for around $8 and available at any suburban strip mall.

But it’s not known as such in Berlin, where Kennedy was speaking.

Here at Mizzou you'll hear arguments every now and then between the St. Louis people and, well, everyone else, what the correct name for the chain is.
