Texas vs. California – 12 Foods to Consider
Being born and raised in California, I like to think that I have a decent palette thanks to all the amazing west coast takes on food. Then I moved to Texas.
The lone star state is making me waiver between California and Texas food - both are great. One might be a bit healthier, but the other makes it up by keeping me full for the rest of the day. Let's compare, shall we?
California Burritos - Yes. There are french fries in the burrito. It's the best thing in the world.
Texas Burritos - Texas burritos are drenched with goodness and the size of a big baby.
BBQ in California - I'm used to making kabobs and my specialty Korean BBQ out in CA. I definitely love it on occasion.
BBQ in Texas - I went from eating CA BBQ occasionally to eating Texas BBQ weekly. I can't help it. There's too much good stuff out here.
In-N-Out Burger - Sorry everybody. My heart still belongs to In-N-Out and their animal style fries.
Whataburger - I completely understand the hub-bub over Whataburger. Awesome taquitos, chicken fingers, fries, biscuits and burgers. And that Texas Toast... Ok, that makes up for a lot.
California - Ever heard of Boba Tea? Yeah. It's OK.
Texas - Now that Sweet Tea is where it's really at.
California - My favorite pie spot back on the west coast was from a burger joint called Nation's.
Texas - But the pecan pies out here are incomparable.
California - I love brunch in California. Booze and bacon and eggs.
Texas - But who can resist food in the shape of your state!?
So. What do you think? California or Texas? Are there any specific foods I'm missing that should be compared? Let me know because research = eating.
